flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

Today was a world of blue skies, ice, and crystal coated trees, rocks and fauna – the magic and artistry of it all, was breath-taking. enchantment in every direction The greatest moments in life, are God-given.

 

When we hide inside on days when the world beckons, We miss moments that can never be replayed, and sights that are for NOW, tomorrow it will  be another presentation.

Live every moment of the day, you will blessed with a life of amazement, and wonder.

1st day 12.14.18_036

Waiting for 2018 to end.  What a year it has been,  Major changes, a much loved story book romance, came to an end.  Lost in thought last night, I wandered through the open doors of the memory vault. Each new day, brings me further away, from the day last May when I was left behind at the runway, my time not yet come to fly.

What will the new year bring, one will never know till the time comes.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks a steady beat..counting down to what…

Chinese New Year is at the start of February this year.  We will enter the year of the Pig.  Tonight in my part of the world, we will slide into 2019, a little over twelve hours from now.  If I didn’t know the time would it make a difference.  Not really, my life would still be in change mode, and after a good sleep, I will wake to begin yet another day of adventure and exploration.

Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

Appreciation -Gratitude

PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, we have all heard of it, many of us deal with it in our lives in some way, friends, family, neighbours, work mates.  Usually someone somewhere, in your sphere, knows of, or has someone who has had to cope through a crises.  We know the weather patterns are changing too.

So many voices, so many schools of thought, everyone has a different reality. Why are some worlds lived in monochrome, and others vary in degree of colour. Life simply IS.

Same planet, different longitude and latitude perhaps, sometimes it is the same place in time and space, yet the people  involved are scrambling for harmony and balance in a world that can be chaotic at times, there is order in the Universe, but we, the human species, is often out of step.

This time of year can be very hard for those who are coping with a bout of December dis”ease”.

PL Calendar day 23   Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.

PL Principle  #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions.

Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin.  Gratitude and Acceptance.

Q

21st Sunday Thanksgiving

Creativity is seeing things everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has ever thought


 

PL thought for today – When you are able to have a thankful attitude you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.


Oyashikiri

Original expression done shortly after my Mother passed away. Could I do it again, no. Once we express something to the world it is done, there is no going back.  We move forward.  In anger once I spoke angry words about someone.  My Mother quickly and quietly told me that I should think before I spoke.  Words spoken, actions of unkindness, are negative not only to the person you are directing your anger to, but to your self.  If you have nothing kind to say, say nothing.  Deal with the moment, you can do it.. tomorrow will be another day.

 

How are you

 

IMG_0885While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself.  We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis.  I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings.  After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change.  Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”

It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”.  The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.

I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured.  To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well.  Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present.  I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it.  So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell.  No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.

No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME.  And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone.  Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed.  For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.

For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions.  Love is PEACE.
