Not picture perfect, but there you have it. Leon has his rights. He knows when it is his time to chill, and he takes it.
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.
Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up”, but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

Almost the end of another \calendar year. Except for the fact that we will flip open a new calendar, and sign 20 instead of 19. We will still all be here, waking up, and starting a new day .. One more sleep my dears, and a new year will begin.
We can be pretty we can be merry – above all else, be safe and always remember, you are the most precious gift of all.
Good morning everyone, I was challenged to post a picture of dog(s) Pffft. easy task, since I don’t get to FB much except through my blog, I have given you pictures of dogs here, to achieve the goal, of dogs for smiles!!!
I didn’t do a typo the quote today is from the 29th, year 2011.
Lack of Explanation is a sign of your lazy mind. Sometimes you incorrectly assume they should know this already. Always strive to explain things thoroughly with a ind heart.

To all our friends in the USA I hope you had a fantastic day yesterday with family/friends, sharing in the joys of sharing and appreciation.
Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.
PL Principle 1 (of of 21) I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
This past week I have had wonderful Thanksgiving dinners with friends, too many, in fact… now that the actual week-end is here, I am “stuffed”, Not with the blessing of friendships, but with poultry, dressing and cranberry sauces. One can never have enough friends.I love my friends.
As I drifted off into a peaceful sleep. I counted my blessings, family, friends I absolutely delight in, the country I live in, its beauty, it changing seasons, and of course, life itself.
People, human beings, from wherever in the world all share the same skies, the same day to day challenges, what makes it different, is that each culture has its own way, and celebrate life with different holidays, and have different heroes and folklore. My father taught me that to be accepted, I had to first accept myself, AND, the ways of others. It wasn’t always about ME, but how I accepted life, lived it, and made my way, was indeed mine, and I needed to own my actions. RESPECT played a big part, if I didn’t understand, it was alright to ask, always with respect and an open heart.
Granted often food was involved, we considered it an honour to eat with friends, guests welcomed to our table, were always shown the utmost respect, and when out, there was always the reminder to be considerate of others.
Now we sit in restaurants, each at our table, or booth, the place can be packed with other diners, but not a glance is given, or a smile offered.
How is it in your “world” are you someone who is open to smiling and greeting a total stranger, if only briefly, with a sign of recognition that they are another “person” just like you….
