invite happiness

P1000729 (1)

Appreciate all of what life offers.  When we find beauty in all we encounter, we will be rewarded.

“PL calendar day 14  Be a Person who invites Happiness

Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you.  By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.”

Change is a constant in life. Learn to accept changes in your life, when we flow with the Universe, life is easier, and our state of mind, more balanced.



Bom dia – good morning

Your surroundings are a Reflection of YOU  PL Calendar day 9

Para pessoas preocupadas surgem fatos preocupantes  Para otimistas, fatos alegres e para os gentis, fatos agradaveis.

A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about.  An optimistic person will attract happiness.  A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.


May the calm serenity of a peaceful moment  bless your day….

Happy Friday everyone..

Africa - Leopard tortoise

leopard  tortoise meandering along on his/her way, likely oblivious to the spectators following his journey.  It’s intent is to get to where it is going.

In the pouring rain today, sirens could be heard coming from different directions as I made my way across the city.  It was a constant downpour, so I wasn’t hurrying. I simply pointed myself in the direction I was headed, and followed the traffic in front of me, mindful of the speed limits and the traffic lights.

From the news this evening, I learned that in the early part of the day, there had been a lot of accidents with cars, trucks school buses going off the road and highways  due to the slippery conditions.  The usual pictures of vehicles in the ditch and the complaining that the darn weather was the cause of everything that happened.

I, like the tortoise accept that we live on this beautiful multi-facetted planet.. .. we are responsible for our actions. When one foot goes in front of the other, or a direction is taken, we are moving, it is me, myself and I  making the choices that move me through the day.

It is not the weather that had me leave the house without an umbrella, it was a choice I made to leave without one.  If I am walking along the road and it is so wet that the puddles are like small lakes, I have to know that a car could go by and I will be drenched.  It is not the car’s fault if I do get splashed.  That’s life.

Does that sound callous, I don’t mean to, it is just that life is what it is, and wet weather is part of living on this earth.  Winter in some countries means, snow, cooler weather, and slippery roads.  It is life.  If you know you have to deal with such things, why is it a surprise when winter weather  does what it does. If you have lived here for a lifetime, then, it happens every year.  It is not something new.

Happiness is a state of mind we choose to live in.  If you decide that negativity is all you see around you, then perhaps you need to re-evaluate  what you do with the positives that come your way.   Because positives are out there.

When we are able to have a thankful attitude, when we appreciate what we have and not dwell on what we don’t have, our perspective on life will change.  We will grow as individuals.  Our lives will move in a positive direction.

The 21st of each month, is Thanksgiving in PL (Perfect Liberty) – Let us be thankful for all the blessings we have received this past month.  Giving thanks, and showing appreciation, we move forward into tomorrow. Hearts open to unconditional love.








Happy Monday

west end Munster 4

I confess to being a back road junky.  I will take wrong turns or continue along a road, just because.  I love to see the different landscapes, colours, building and whatever else cannot be seen while we are driving on a main road. Admittedly, I sometimes find myself on a country road that I had no intention of being on..  Usually that is when I find something that cries out to me.. Stop… come back,  and I do.  I pull over, there is little to no traffic,  put on my emergency lights and get out.

west end Munster 1In the summer or in other seasons where foliage and filled in landscapes, catch the eye, the buildings can go unnoticed.  Not the other day,  I stood on the empty road, and just took in the quiet, the different shades of blue/gray in the skies, and the personality of the building that once was.

Somehow the snow and the wisps of dried vegetation that poked out here and there, gave the building a charm, I don’t know would be there when the trees were in full bloom.  Maybe in the fall with the autumn colours.  Come September/October, if I remember, and IF I can find it again.  I should check it out.

Time to find a main road, so that I can get back on track, do what needs doing and head home …

Today is a hospital day.  Please keep us in your prayers, send positive, healing energy, we will hear today, what the doctors have put together for us.

Friday greetings..

Miss Piggy tea pot VV

Miss Piggy waves hello.. a cheerful pot of tea, she is dropping in to wish you well,   We have a bright sunny day here, milder temperatures too.  I think I heard thunder rolling across the winter night sky in the early morning hours.  Warmer air, passing over and pushing down on the colder air below.

Works for me.  What ever you are doing, where ever you are going.. May the rays of positive energy bless your day today !!


You are loved, today and everyday!


and no, Miss Piggy did not follow me home.


maintain a positive attitude

Feel the positive and energizing energy coming from this photo, the composition, the colours, the presentation.  I can inhale and imagine the fragrance of the fresh flowers.

Be positive today. # 26  Maintain a Positive Attitude and wisdom will come to you.

mountain 1.15.

I knew I shouldn’t just stop along the highway, but when I saw the trees coated in white snow, I found a way to stop so I could take a few pictures.

mountain c 1.15

Too often, I squeal with delight at something I pass along the way.  I know moments can’t repeat themselves, but still I try.  I wanted to capture the white frosting on the sculpted branches.  I drove for miles and saw only open fields, with winter shades of blanched stalks, and soft golden grasses standing out from the fresh fallen snow.  Farm houses, and barns in the distance would have made great captures, but there was no place to stop.

We need to seize opportunities when they show themselves.  As I turned off the busy #43, towards Mountain, I saw the  stand of trees, with their blanket of snow, and the textured ground cover and I knew… it was time to pull over.  Such moments, are not necessarily the best photos, but they sure are rewarding moments that leave a person feeling good. Sometimes we need just LIVE the moment, and then move on.

If we hold back, wait and want only that perfect picture.  We miss the moment.  Technical composition, for me does not  >for me<  a memory make… Just saying…

That is why we are all so different, and why appreciation of another is so valuable in the enrichment of daily life.
