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”

April 24.

April 24, a date to remember, it was my husband’s birthday.Brian collage A day that celebrated his life. Now it is a reminder that I am a “widow”  In May it will be a year since he passed away.  His last birthday was one he so bravely wanted to celebrate.  His courage and determination saw him make that date and live to say he had achieved his goal.  He had his 70th. at home we toasted his achievements and his life, knowing there would be no more.

Over his years of  being successful at his chosen vocation – broadcasting, and the written media, he thrived at being a reporter of his many journeys and many observations as he travelled the world in search of stories, and new experiences. He never tired of sharing with others his enjoyment of the many interests he had acquired through his travels and his career.  History, geography, world affairs he could converse and debate at large.

Things that happen to us all have a meaning.

Everything that happens to us happens for a reason.  Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

We married late in life, he was determined that his wife would be  alright when and if he was not around.  That meant, he wanted me to have and maintain an independence that would serve me in good stead should he not be around.  He was so kind, considerate and caring, that I can say in all sincerity, he completed my life in a way that was so loving and dedicated to our togetherness that even though physically he is not here, he will always be MY husband, MY one and only … You were and are a blessing Brian, you are celebrated every day. R.I.P.

PL calendar day 15

Live with firm determination,  that “this will turn out for the best” Everything in this world progresses and develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best

Someone once asked me did I ever get tired of being a “Pollyanna”  for those of you unfamiliar with that expression, it usually was used to describe someone who was always cheerful and looking for positives.  I like being happy, and I work towards that goal.  I sometimes miss the mark by a long mile and another times it takes only a smile to bring my happy back.

That does not mean that I don’t feel disappointment, and at times, totally sad and have no choice but to live through my emotion of that moment.  It passes, meanwhile, my body, my mind needed that cleansing.   PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional    Live the moment and move on.

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in relativity

PL 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.

My love and appreciation to you all.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and others
