Some doors should just stay shut, and others should be explored. A door opened yesterday, that gave vent for deep rooted anger and hurt to escape. Fortunately I was able to close the door again. But it is obviously one I will have to explore again, at another time.
My Mother passed away 2 years ago, my husband one year ago. There is more processing to do. I give thanks for the blessing of friends.
PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
PL Precept # 4 Being annoyed limits your expression.
Question, when your hurt is disrespected and tossed aside, my reaction is to withdraw, so that I can be respectful as much as I can of another persons stubbornness… Why is it so difficult for me to accept. I am not a masochist .. I distance myself my preference to be to live in peace and be happy. However, there are times, it isn’t that simple. So by golly, shut that darn door, and leave it closed, in fact, bring the nails and hammer and I will nail it shut.
How serious am I.
We can open a door and walk away, or we can look out and shut the door, staying inside, or …….. ?????

Day 8 of the PL calendar
First accept Everything
Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient. It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.
Bom dia!! Greetings on another bright sunny morning. Mid week already, where doe the time go.
It was fantastic day yesterday to travel the roads, the trees along the highway are starting to bud, I could feel the anticipation in every direction. The water levels were still very high as we approached the West Island (heading into Montreal). We observed that the water was still half way up the trees that would usually be above the water line on dry land.
Please take time to remember that tho’ the weather is currently dry, there are thousands who have suffered severe water damage over the last weeks, and need our prayers. Not just a few, but many people have lost year of memories and accumulated treasures, and are finding themselves in a place of sadness with weeks and months of rebuilding and hard work just to regain a sense of “normal”

When the mind is busy – not really doing a lot, wheels are spinning the pen and hand doodle. shapes, faces, eyes, brows, profile,chin, eye lashes – doodling a me pastime.

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now.
Now is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW. Be thankful for everything.

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.

My thanks to a dear and wonderful friend, who was out with his camera and came across these new blooms. Spring blossoms are so welcoming, so darn full of determination .. their crisp green and vibrant yellows peeking out after one of Nature’s last snow flings.
Good Morning, Bom Dia!!
PL calendar day 14
Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you
Always be mindful of the situation of others, not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.

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

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!
