easter

Konnichiwa – bom dia!!

What goes around, comes around....  over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten.  The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”

PL calendar day 17

Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.

Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are.  Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.

With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails.  Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well.  Each day truly is a new beginning.

PL Precept #19 Begin Once you Perceive.

Happy start to another day!  It is Thursday, the week has flown by.  Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month.  Ancestors Day.

PL calendar day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.  Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”.  Mary Robinson.

Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are.  I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.

When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

1, 2 buckle my ?

Bom dia, What a day it has been.  Problems with my e-mail have been giving me problems for the last couple of days.  After three attempts with the provider to determine why the e-mail was not coming in. and 48 hours later, they try to sell me a plan (  until then it had never been mentioned).  It would only cost me six dollars a month, and they would watch over my PC and mail (they are the provider)  Needless to say I was not a willing player of that game.  When I asked to speak to a Supervisor I was told, there was no Supervisor, they were in a meeting.  A Manager then, no sorry no Manager,  Seems manager and supervisor were one and the same.

PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.

PL Precept # 2 To live is to express one’s self

I did get annoyed and I did express myself.

PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

My day started with my leaving home without my phone.  Then discovering, that I couldn’t find my phone at all.  Since I was/ am waiting for the insurance people to get back to me about the car, let us just say, it wasn’t a banner start to the day.

3 – 4 – shut the door

It is almost 8, I can close off and shut down, call it  day.  Tomorrow is another day. I am sorry I missed getting on earlier today, I hope you all had a very productive day

Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Any one know the rest of this little ditty.

5 – 6  Pick up ??

It is all good, my son called concerned about my phone, that was a big “happy” for me.  and Leon my bbf  (wonderful caring dog) was happy to see me, content to snuggle and cozy up.  What more can a gal ask for. =^_^=

Always count your blessings come end of day.  (yes phone found)

details

bitmoji-20190405074041

Good morning, Bom Dia – Saturday

Making your way through the maze of details that need attending after an accident of a vehicle.

Insurance, claims, adjusters, customer service, sales, research collecting data, processing data, yada yada yada.

It is not a disaster, it is an opportunity for me to review my performance abilities, and use my creativity to unravel and get through the experience, one step at a time. Most important is that I do my best to meditate on what I can do differently, or what I need to work harder on to improve my skills/tools so that it doesn’t happen again.

PL calendar – day 6

Past, present, or future, always remember to be sincere and honest (to one’s self)

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  at each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status.

PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

PL Precept # 17 Grasp what is most essential

happiness is

For me, mixed media 4.18.17

PL calendar day 4.

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others

Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.

I came across the above photo this morning.  I enjoyed revisiting it, so I am sharing it with you. Some expressions of mine.. I enjoy at the time, they are calming and relaxing when I am working with them…  then… fickle as I am..  I move on.  Each step leads to another.  So maybe not fickle, maybe it is more, I let go and go forward.  I just finished several small requests for greeting cards, I enjoy doing them,  I sit myself down, focus on project cards.  When that is done, I put the card making supplies away and return to my art journals.

Sage sentiment.  Follow your heart while thinking of the happiness of others.

I know it is impossible to be happy and full of glee 24/7, but I  do so enjoy thinking of you all living in happy states of mind..  Productivity, creativity and accomplishments filling your days with rewarding moments of pure satisfaction.  Positive and loving energy to all.   Share a smile today!

Afternoon greetings, boa tarde!

When I got up this morning, I felt rested after a good night’s sleep so I decided I would do a few errands close to home.  I knew or should I say hoped that I would hear from the adjustor or the dealer about my car. At nine I prepared to leave expecting to be back in a couple of hours tops.

The day was clear, a little overcast, and not too cold.  As I prepared to leave, I decided to change my footwear, from sturdy walking shoes to my gum boots.  ??? why I had no idea, since I had no plans to be out of the city.  But.. went with my instinct and put on my Bogs.  They are comfortable after all.

All good plans and planning were for naught. Circumstances were such that instead of coming home, the adjustor called me, when I was less than 10 minutes from my street.  The towing company would not release my car without my authorization.  Even though I had given them that previously, it was not enough, they wanted me to sign a release form because I had personal items in my car.

The pound as they call it, was WAY out.  Not a little out, but a long way out.  When I finally got there, it was all mud, not just a little mud, but deep rutted thick squishy wet mud that sucked anything that dared enter the grounds. YAY THANK YOU GOD!!! I was wearing my boots.

In PL we are reminded over and over, to trust in that inner voice,  The Universe works in special ways.  I drove home with gratitude and appreciation that with time my faith has devloped and I believe.. PL Precept # 11 Always be with God,

Yes it was a frustrating at times, but I did it, I got what was needed done.  Thank you thank you thank you, to all of you who care and watch out for me.  I appreciate you all.

accidents happen

Sorry everyone   I didn’t get to church today, was busy being hit by a car, and dealing with having to do an accident report, and getting my car towed etc.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

Sometimes, things happen that are unexpected.  Living in the NOW, you deal with it and move on.

PL Precept #7    Everything exists in relativity

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

I won’t refuse positive energy being sent this way.  =^_^=   Thanks!!
