Good morning, look I am up and awake, maybe not yet raring to go, but I am getting there. A change in my routine, and voila, still up, fed the dogs, making breakfast. Hey! (very Canadian) just like the good old days. =^_^=. Looks like I will still make my exit from the house to run errands at about the same time. Wow I am learning first hand, when you role with change, it can be exhilarating.
Use any result, good or bad, as a stepping stone. A;; outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our future progress.
This little lass arrived on my doorstep yesterday, all the way from China. She was tired and a little weary from the long voyage, and the environment she found herself in was vastly different from what she has known. After much thought, we decided her name would be Yumi. I have a young friend in Japan that she reminds me of… She graciously accepted her new name. It pleased her, since previous to arriving here, she was simply a stock number. I will let her adapt to her new environment before I try to involve myself in her life.
Today is the 31st, there will be celebrations , depending on the age group, I suspect it will be a busy evening, with a lot of fun and frolicking. Energy levels are very high all over the world where “witches and warlocks” play. How well do you know your neighbours. =^_^= I myself, will meditate and pray for all to be safe in their enjoyment of the night.
I loved this piece when I did it, October 2015, now I can’t even recall what had inspired me, or what I did with it. Life is in constant motion, what we feel is so thrilling and important today, in time, the intensity fades, and unless we learn to let go, we will be facing frustrations and hurt. Places, people, everything changes.
In PL (Perfect Liberty) we are given the tools and the encouragement to live our lives in a way that allows us flexibility, and teaches how to adapt to changes.
Don’t look for excuses to say “I can’t”. If you let your situation control you or you fear failure, you will not be able to feel enthusiastic about anything.Take on any project with a firm conviction that you will succeed.
Thank you. It seems I have successfully changed the e-mail for the blog, and I m receiving my notices. =^_^= touch wood. Now if only I can manage to keep it all in order in the gray cells. Think positive girl.!
Today I learned that I have had a complaining mind. Of course I knew I was capable of such a activity, what I didn’t know was that I have been vocal on many times, when I should have worked on Perfect Liberty Principle # 2
I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.
PL Principle #2
I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
PL Principle #3
It is a good friend that will point out something to you, that you have not been seeing in your behavior. I am grateful to have such a friend.
It is time to take a page from Mother Nature’s season, let some of my leaves fall and reacquaint myself with my roots. I have had too many leaves crowding my view, I need to stand back, and explore my truck and branches. Slowly and carefully, changes have taken place and it is time to look within.
I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.
Chika Qu was born on a sim in Second Life. There she sits forgotten, no where to go, and no one to talk to. That is what happens, when time goes by, and another life is forgotten. Someone gets left behind.
Be free of your attachments. If you are obsessed with doing something in only a certain way, it narrows your choices. Keep your options open and be flexible.
When we are young and begin our journey, art is a creative outlet. A way of expression. Young eyes, will replicate with whatever medium they have on hand and will delight us with their drawings and insights.
As we travel the road of life, our thoughts and views take on different forms of expression. This drawing was done by my 6 year old niece, seeing it, I was filled with memories of the days where I lay with my pencils, crayons and rescued papers, designing what I knew would be the gowns and dresses of the “fashion” world.
What happens to our dreams, do they actually go away, or do they blossom into an assortment of different colour and shapes. I still think of drawing and using fashion when I sit to “express” my thoughts, the key word being -think- that disappears the minute I see a blank page/canvass. My innocence has had years of living to change its perceptions.
PL Precept #1 Life is Art, friends, go with the flow, the only constant in life is change. Life your life to the fullest, appreciate and be grateful for all the comes your way. Growing pain and all. You “art” will shine and continue to be uniquely yours.
*yesterday at this time, I was heading for Montreal and fish tails. =^_^=
I was out of the city most of the week, travelling the roads…Gone are the fields of green, I was met with beautiful skies, that reflected the cooler temperatures, and the fields of white. Interesting how the sky actually looks bluer and the clouds whiter when below is a blanket of crystal white snow.
I love that the world is constantly providing us with an abundance of new vistas, opportunities and challenges. Letting go of what was, is an ongoing process of growth and new experiences.
PL calendar day 24 – Listen and See with careful attention and accept each other
Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any pre conceived notions. Then you will be able to see their true intentions.
Life is what we make of it. The choices are always ours.
Every new day is a blessing, each exchange with a friend, is a double blessing, for often through the eyes of our friends, we see a part of ourselves. Q
Not really but the colours appealed to me. I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning. So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done. I make it happen. In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”.. I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.
Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.
I believe that to be true. For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.
Day 10 PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality
I have been told “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment” So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out… removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort” Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home” ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day. A home is where the “heart” is. Always, forever and always.
The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and memorial for Brian. Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if you are able to, join us in prayer. What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=
Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.
