I needed a change. I’d been listening to “Rocking Country” “Blues” this is always good background music for me when I’m “working”..For some reason, I decided to look up what events were on at that moment. There was a live concert, of native flute, and drum, totally different.
From right to left. I looked up events. Found that the show had just started, fixed my hair and taxied over. It was so totally different from the foot stomping music I’d been listening to, I wasn’t sure I’d stay. The performer, was explaining that he had made several of the different flutes he would be playing, It was not electric, it was acoustic, it was pure and simple. Within a very short time, (picture on the left) I was zoning out, really chilling.
Sometimes it is easier to do what we are used to. BUT, when we step outside the box, our perceptions, our senses reawaken, I drifted, let the music come and go, let the moment happen, and the tired weary part of my physical self, sighed and ahhhhh I really really relaxed. when I got to bed, I SLEPT.
When you think “I’ve got it” think again.It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusion. Always have a humble attitude, and double check to make sure.

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “now” Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you an live your life as fully as possible without regrets
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.
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.
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.
Of course you have. This morning my “kick to my lazy self” was the familiar, why didn’t I save the pictures of previous works. to my new PC. “Cuz you are lazy, lazy, lazy” said the little voice. Sigh, I am, this is one of my lessons in life, .. the battle between the me that wants to do things “my way” and the me that then has to live with the me that doesn’t do something, BEEEE CUZ! (=^_^= a wee rant.. sorry)
I did motivate myself to go up to my husband’s lair and pack a few more bags to take away to the Goodwill. I am getting there. I am from the generation that doesn’t sit still long, we prefer being active/busy. However my body (as wee piglet pointed out) when off balance and needing rest, wants and needs REST. She may be little but she is feisty!
Work well with everyone regardless of their age or position. The opinion of those who are younger may lead to new solutions, and we can always learn from the accumulated experiences of our elders.
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 knowwhen to stand still”.
Whatever you decide. Make it count.
The 2020 calendars are out, did you get yours yet?
