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?
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.
The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.
I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.
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 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful
Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.
Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.
PL Precept #7 Everything exists in relativity
Please note that tomorrow, I am taking my “unreliable” “malfunctioning” PC back to the store for a check up. I will be back asap.
The 21st is drawing near. There is a long week-end coming up. For those of you celebrating Easter, enjoy your time with family and friends. It is a special week-end. In PL we celebrate Thanksgiving on the 21st.
The Thanksgiving service is the 21st of each month. It is the most important service of the month. This Sunday will be a very positive and prayer filled day. Our church here in Ottawa will hold service at 10 a.m. and again at 7 pm. All are welcome.
Today – PL Calendar day 18
Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate. Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.

What goes around, comes around.... over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten. The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”
PL calendar day 17
Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.
Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails. Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well. Each day truly is a new beginning.
What?? I don’t know, back in 2015 I saw this photo and was intrigued at what it was, what it meant, where it came from. If I found out, I didn’t record it, so in my files this is what I found, now Feb. 24. 2019
Doing a tidy up, I found a card a group of friends sent me when my husband passed away, “on the loss of your husband” Store bought, from the American Greeting co. in the States, I reread the message.
“They say life goes on just give yourself time to mourn, and accept and to heal, Though none of that offers much comfort right now with the sorrow and loss you must feel… but, there in your heart where you miss him the most where friendship and love never cease, somehow you know that he’d want nothing more than to see you find comfort and peace”
As I digested the words of sympathy my friends had sent me, my eyes fell on today’s PL calendar, for day 24
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.
It is with gratitude that I start my day, and appreciation for you my friends who keep in touch, drop in, the distance, the miles, time zones, disappear, when I say I appreciate each and every one of you. I do. My heart sings with joy when you say hi… the like button, the thoughtful hellos, and cheerful input, the nudge now and then, all blessings.
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. ” Nelson Mandela
