graduation day!!

Cultivando alegria no curso de inglês.  (English follows)

No dia 05 de julho, finalizei o meu curso de inglês conforme condição da faculdade para iniciar meu curso em setembro (mais detalhes, ler vivência “Minha Jornada no Canadá”). Foram 9 semanas, estudando das 9hs às 16:30 diariamente (exceto fins de semana) o que me deixava bem ocupado.

No início, eu acreditava que seria fácil, pois as pessoas consideravam meu nível de inglês muito bom. No entanto, acabei melhorando muito meu inglês. Percebi que cometia muitos erros e, consequentemente, me esforcei para aprender ao máximo. Durante o curso, fui recebendo prece de Oyashikiri sempre que possível.

Houve momentos que senti pressão e tive algumas preocupações (por exemplo, busca por apartamento para alugar), e isto começou a afetar meu desempenho uma vez que estava mais preocupado com resultado do que aprender. Em resumo, eu estava perdendo a alegria de realizar o curso de inglês. Como peelista, eu notei que era o momento certo para buscar os ensinamentos da PL e praticar o que aprendi ao longo dos anos: ter gratidão pela oportunidade e orar para cultivar entusiasmo e criatividade.

Com essa prática, tudo mudou e passei a realmente sentir alegria no curso, até mesmo meus colegas da turma tinha prazer de estudar comigo. Sem dúvidas, foi uma experiência gratificante, pois pude conhecer pessoas de diferentes países e fazer grandes amigos.

No último dia do curso, estes novos amigos demonstraram muito carinho que até fiquei sem palavras. Ficamos muito próximos por compartilharmos os mesmos desafios e mesmos objetivos, e assim um apoiava o outro.

Eu realmente agradeço à Deus e ao Oshieoyá-Sama. Os ensinamentos da PL são um tesouro que faz total diferença na vida de uma pessoa, como esta vivência.

Agradeço a todos pelo tempo e atenção em ler esta vivência. Que Deus abençoes a todos com alegria e paz.

Bringing joy to everyday classes.

On July 5th, I finished my English course as a condition to start the Algonquin College (please, more details about it, see the previous testimony “My journey to Canada”). I had studied for 9 weeks from 9 am to 4:30 pm every day (except for weekends) and that kept me very busy.

In the beginning, I thought I would handle it easily, once people considered my level of English as very good. Actually, it turned out that I have gotten lots of improvement. I realized that I still had many mistakes and, as a result, I did my best to study and learn as much as I could. During the course, I had been receiving Oyashikiri prayer whenever was possible.

There were times that I felt pressure and some concerns appeared (e.g looking for a place to rent), and that began to affect negatively on my performance since I was worried about only the results instead of the learning process. In summary, I was losing the joy and excitement to go to school. As a PL member, I noticed that it was the right moment put in prqactice PL teachings that I’ve learned over the years: everyday express appreciation for the opportunity and pray to bring joy and be creative.

Doing that was a game-changer because I really enjoyed my time at the language school and even my classmates were so pleased to have me there. Definitely, it was a great experience because I have met many people from other countries and I have made valuable friends.

On my graduation day, these new friends showed so much care for me that I became speechless. In the end, we have created a bond between us because some of them shared the same challenges and the same goals as mine, so we could support each other and we can now help each other.

I do have appreciation for God and Oshieoya Sama. The PL teachings are a treasure that can make a huge difference in one’s life like the testimony above.

Thank you for taking this moment to read this. May God bless us all with joy and peace.


Thank you for sharing Yoshi, (Yoshizumi Terada) have a good day everyone… Enjoy a great start to a brand new week!

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

windows

flowers at TD bells corners

Windows, so important in our daily lives.  Often neglected, still, they reflect and offer up a wonderful array of visual delights.  I hoped the light wouldn’t change before I captured the beautiful yellow flowers.  I was granted my wish.

I know I am not alone in my joy in the simplicity of simply enjoying the creativity in the world that surrounds me.

What have you seen out of your window recently that had a WOW factor.

Hope your week-end is full of discoveries, you are in my thoughts, always and forever.

PL Calendar day 14 – Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you.

 

 

Appreciation

Montfort 8.10.17

July 11th PL calendar –

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

Church is a spiritual home away from home, and a place to find your inner=self.

Service today is at 10 a.m

Reminder,  At church you can have a state of mind where you are able to open up yourself to God and candidly share what is bothering your minister(s)

Oyashikiri

ps.. when you share your life with people you love, don’t forget to let them know you value them, that you love them.  We only live once, when a moment passes, it does not come back for a replay (rerun)  Love is powerful and enduring,  be aware/respectful.  Always.   forever is a long time,

end of day

church 7.7.19

It has been the kind of day, that I can honestly say – I am happy to bid it adieu.  PC problems, with a television tantrum to test my already depleted unbalanced day.

However, thanks to solid friends, and an otherwise, sunny day…. I am able to chill this evening, and get online to wish each an everyone of you a grand spanking new day tomorrow.

PL calendar  day 8    First accept Everything

Life is filled with happy 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.

Thanks to my good friends today, I was able to practice patience and enjoy my day, when at another time I would have seen my patience, rumpled and creased.  I feel truly blessed, I am learning, appreciation and gratitude is the fabric that binds lasting friendships

Without friends life would be empty.

Oyashikiri

church 7.7.19a

What is this flower, it was so heavily scented?

wordless Wednesday

july 3

sometimes in a world of chaos, we need not understand, there are far too many elements

july 3rd

accept, let go and move on.

PL calendar day 3   Instead of worrying .. do something about it.

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, What if this happens? or Things might end up that way.  Instead, be proactive and change how you see and do things, in each situation.

Oyashikiri
