you are you

prosperity, long life, good health

It is only natural that YOU are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. that’s what makes life interesting.

I’ve explained to Hermit (doll in last post) that she is who she is, and not everyone will find her to their liking. She understands, at least she says she does, but a friend noted, she looked sad. So I took another look, I took a good look and sought to see the sadness. But it didn’t come, for when I look at her, I feel joy, and giddy sense of “wow, you really rock” She wears her years of experiences, lost love, forgotten friendships, and numerous disappointments for all to see. She can’t help it, she was made this way. I didn’t try to change her, I simply gave her breaks, bruises and scars the recognition they deserved.

We have all felt pain, longing, sadness, we’ve loved, we’ve cried, and the disappointments have taken their toll. Yet, the reality is they have actually made us stronger and more beautiful/handsome., then ever. For in living life, we learn more about our SELVES.. The me, in I.

Chinese New Year (Rat) is January 25th. In China this celebration of “family” and LIFE… goes on for weeks, when able to, everyone that can, heads home. To you my friends, I wish you all, Long life… prosperity and Good health.. YOU are all part of my family.

obstacles

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things The outcome is in your hands.

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.

Shirley MacLaine

Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

Your willingness to learn will make you shine even brighter. As long as you are motivated to learn more, you will continue to progress in life.

I wanted to, but life got in the way.

surrounded by activity, yet alone

Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.

nights of contemplation

There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.

In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.

Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/

Use what you need to use without hesitation. Your things, your money, your knowledge, and your strengths are all a part of you. Utilize them to their fullest potential without hesitation.

Perfect Liberty 2019.29

Do things in Moderation. Whenever you overdo something, you will lose balance in your life. Express yourself appropriately without being overly attached or detached.

FYI the Chinese New Year this coming lunar year will fall on January 25th. For many the close proximity of the two new year celebrations will mean a lot of activity and energy. The Chinese new year is focused very much on “family”. Leading up to this important time of year, we “clean” our “homes”, physically and mentally.

For those familiar with the I Ching. Hexagon 58 Tui the top three lines mirror the bottom ones. broken line, followed by two unbroken lines.

Joy and Harmony! No doubt. Confidence. No regrets. Advancement. Happiness! Faith in the temporary causes disillusionment. Attraction!

Smile it is contagious!

and then 27

Really a work day after time off, and the next day is a week-end again!. Do I remember, the groans when holidays would fall mid week. However every day in PL is a good day. It is just to get that motivation to actually get out of bed, and get going. Once we are on our way, we are immersed and right into living the day. whispers rah rah rah…. keeping it quiet just in case, you haven’t had your coffee yet.

Don’t you just love the Pollyannas in this world. I know deep down inside you agree we are the captains of our ships. You can decide to make it a good day, or not. Truthfully sometimes, I make the decision, for ” Time out”. Taoist philosophy, “wise man know when to stand still”.

Whatever you decide. Make it count.

The 2020 calendars are out, did you get yours yet?

no sense or nonsense

V Lock Ard Gorge 4.25.17

it was a restless dream

I heard my thoughts,

the challenges from various sections

of my overworked gray cells

the unfinished sentences

the words of wisdom

clashing with aggressive shouts

the voice of reason was not to be ignored

throught it all

a part of me sat unmoved

was this nonsense

or merely me

unable to make sense

of the prattle and the inner voices

that when all vying for attention

at the same time

make no sense at all

Q

PL Calendar day 2

Live each day with hope   Even in those situation when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.

Oyashikiri
