Face challenging situations with positive determination
When you encounter difficulties boldly take measures to overcome them. By creatively finding solutions, you will feel the joy in tackling any situation.
Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be. Khalil Gibran
moments in time ..
they can be so fleeting.
once lived, the moment is gone
there is no going back.
make each moment count. Q
Everything we have today, was built on the hard work of our ancestors..
Always remember to be humble and thankful. Every moment you live, every experience you have, becomes part of who you are. Be yourself, no one can do it better than you.

Moderation, small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health. Julia Child
Historically , a Katana was traditionally known as a Japanese sword, used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan. However, my Katana is a DC Bombshell collectible. Her real name is Tatsu Yamashiro and her superpowers – martial arts intuition artistic intuition, and enhanced swordmanship. You can of course read more about her on the net. In the comics she is sometimes a teenager… But mine is grown up, ageless =^_^=
Why Katan, DC and Marvel have dozens and dozens of characters and possibilities. It was actually my niece who gave me the idea. She herself had recently picked up a Superwoman. That brought back memories for me when I was growing up, Linda Carter was the blue eyes beauty who played her in the series that was on the telly.
I related to her super powers and her dedication to good, and the service of her abilities in helping others.
This is from the Wikipedia Katana is a fictional superheroine that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. First appearing in 1983, Katana is a samurai warrior whose skill with a sword allows her to fight for justice as a superhero. Her tragic backstory includes the death of her husband, Maseo, whose soul becomes trapped in her blade, the Soultaker. Katana has been featured in various DC Comics superhero teams, including the Justice League and the Birds of Prey, but is most commonly associated with the team known as the Outsiders, a team of heroes hand-picked by Batman to act as his personal black ops team, handling riskier missions.

PL calendar day 20
Find a good balance between your present and past experiences. Without forgetting your original intent, continue to develop your own path by also relying on your knowledge and experience.
I came home today to find a beautiful floral piece with miniature fairy lights. The lights twinkle and dance merrily in their space. The display is magical. Even on the grayest of days, they will be an inspiration. =^_^=
PL Precept #1 Life is Art
Creativity is seeing things everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has ever thought
PL thought for today – When you are able to have a thankful attitude you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.
Original expression done shortly after my Mother passed away. Could I do it again, no. Once we express something to the world it is done, there is no going back. We move forward. In anger once I spoke angry words about someone. My Mother quickly and quietly told me that I should think before I spoke. Words spoken, actions of unkindness, are negative not only to the person you are directing your anger to, but to your self. If you have nothing kind to say, say nothing. Deal with the moment, you can do it.. tomorrow will be another day.
PL Day 18 Perfect Liberty Calendar
Look forward to what’s ahead
There is no use brooding over the past. Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
I am relearning, to practice stillness in my every day life.
There is an art to “Being”
Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute. And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.
Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t. They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.
There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered. This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them. Until I actually say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.
Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap. They instinctively know, that there will be no sharing.
Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily? Are we considerate of others? Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day. Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.
Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync. This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere? Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.
