Bom dia, 15 Fevereiro

Happy 15th. day of February..

Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses and develop.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.


Life goes on. Small discoveries.  Don’t laugh, I see this product every time I visit the Asian grocery store.  When I walk by, always, someone is taking a jar.  The other day, I decided to try the smallest jar.  It is ridiculously good,   Try something new today!!

Ancestors Day

fabric friend got for her

Perfect Liberty 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.


The bright colourful fabric you see was purchased and collected by a friend of my sister’s while on a shopping outing.  I never met this friend, only heard of her through my sister. I was however, really taken by her selection of fabric, the choices she made, and the colours she was drawn to.  This friend passed away last week, leaving a gigantic hole in the lives of her family and friends. It was sudden, no warnings, simply a chill, and she was gone.

We never know in life when a change will be made in our circle of friends and loved ones.  It happens, life is what it is.

Perfect Liberty Principle #2 –  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Day 8 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.

PL Calendar day 5   Start by thinking “this is interesting!”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it.  From there you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come out of it.


“True Religion is real living, living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness an righteousness”  Albert Einstein


It is very quiet all around me when there is a deep blanket of snow around every inch of ground that surrounds my home.  The emergency vehicles are quiet this morning, the main roads and streets must be decent. Commuters who have deadlines must be either there or almost at their destinations..  The quiet of the moment is refreshing.  Yesterday I had a sick day, my body dictated that the end of the lunar year should be one of contemplation and rest.  I listened.

Today is a new beginning.  In PL, Precept #1   Life is Art,  I really and truly believe this, each day is a new canvas, where the possibilities are endless.  For you my precious and delightful friends, readers and “family”  may the Universe enrich your lives with the delight of new adventure, successful results and endless opportunities for your dreams/ wishes.  And, the blessing of wisdom in the knowledge that love is with you, now and always.

Stash

stash feb 2

Good morning everyone, Bom Dia!!!

Stash, supplies, whatever we call our treasures that we collect  because we are attracted to them or find a simple pleasure in adding them to our collection.  Some have a small stash, and others of us, have hmmm let us say, a large variety of collections that we will do something with “some day” or eventually. =^_^=

Having spent the last year or so, in de-clutter mode, I can now more readily see what I have, and what I have ended up I find really interesting.  When I came home yesterday from another adventure through a snow blown countryside.  I saw that I had a lot of products from suppliers that were rich, vibrant and totally statement artists.

Even though the weather to most was a real “drag” if they were on the road trying to get somewhere, but for me and my charming companion, it was an “afternoon stroll”  Leisurely and fun, missing were the tea cups and small sandwiches.  Instead we rolled safely along in our cozy environment and caught up.  Part of the drive we were escorted by two huge city trucks clearing the highway in front of us.

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.  Eleanor Roosevelt

Perfect Liberty calendar day 3     Instead of worrying do something about it

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “things might end up that way”  Instead, be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

In Memory

Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues.  DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours.  Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.

I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again.  A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in.  All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.

This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me.  Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us,  This is not farewell, it is … till soon

Today, day 2, PL calendar is    Live each Day filled with hope(this was Kira’s mantra and motto)

Even in situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always a find a way.

‘Be true to your work, your word and your friend’.  Henry David Thoreau
