In life when we begin a new project, or decide to make a major change in our lives, usually the first step, is a germ of a seed is planted, it takes root and then begins to grow. With some people the idea may lie dormant for some time before they actually decide to move forward.  Then again, some may begin the process but get side tracked and the idea is left to grow on its own, without any further input from the originator.

When we don’t take a firm stand or move forward with a determination to see the project through, results are often not what we expected or anticipated.

Some roots show such determination they will grow with each passing moment, slowing inching their way to the light of day and will use any way/method available to them to do so.

When we try to suppress a desire or passion that needs expression, especially one that is a lesson in life we have to learn or face… …. …. the force of nature will prevail.

There are times when we see a perfection …. however the perception, might not necessarily be consonant with reality, in moments of grace (enriching time in  inner development and self-expression)…  those involved in creative and artistic endeavors will find their “work” very satisfying.  For it will appear to be divinely inspired and when such moments happen, relish them, enjoy the moment, then flow with the changes…. let go, let it change to what it will be…

abandone o apego ao dinheiro e aos objectos -Take the first step with Determination

When we BELIEVE that nothing is impossible, and we  KNOW that we are ONE with the UNIVERSE, our FAITH and DETERMINATION will get us to where we are meant to be.  Note I said, Where we are meant to be, not where we want to go.

Knowing this is what you can do, and doing it, is what choices are all about.  when we are faced with a decision, if we hesitate, it is not the right moment, WAIT, when the time is right, you will know it, and act accordingly.

This is  common sight in Morocco, where the goats climb Argan trees to reach their so loved fruit, which to them is obviously a delight to the taste buds. ( fruit similar to an olive).  In nature, LIFE IS.  We often make our own lives more difficult by trying to second guess something, or by not listening to our inner voice, and  allowing outside influences to cause doubt.

Do what is right for you.  If you need time to digest and ponder your life/day.  Do it.  Having a place or space to simply be yourself, and enjoy the moment is a gift, a luxury, a treasure that is yours alone.  Know what you want, believe you can do it, and go for it.

Every morning, part of the wake up routine is that before the dogs get fed and let out, I turn on the computer so it can do its thing and be ready for me when i get back into my office.  “efficient use of time”  I feed the dogs, and wander back into the office with my huge over-sized mug of very cold water. This was part of a message I got from a friend today.

!cid_part3_04090709_09020106@shawAt first I just stared at it, humour isn’t one of my strong points, then the funny bone kicked in and …… well …… I couldn’t resist sharing it with you.  There were several such pictures, I’m sure you are all familiar with this type of e-mail.. They must land on in your in- boxes as much as they do mine, probably more so, since I’m known for my lack of humour.  This is the only other one I’ll share with you, because it too, gave me cause for reflection.

How we start our day, often sets the tone for the rest of the day/night.  If we get up thinking, omg! another day of sunshine and blue skies, it will be soooo hot  outside. and list off all the negatives of how you perceive your day will be… then you are programming your self to look for and “complain” about each new discovery you make.  On the other “paw” if you wake up and see the sun shining on the ice formed on the tree branches outside your window, and enjoy the beauty of the diamond like rays of light that reflect off the ice crystals, and see the floating hazy mist that is drifting by on a blast of wind and think of how nice and crunchy the snow will be underfoot while you trundle off to work, your mood will be much more positive.  When you  greet others you will be more likely to have a happy positive tone in your voice.  Guess what…. a happy greeting and a smile, will reward you with a cheerful nod or greeting back.

c5a363300e0ff83760f63b49e973ec7bOK … LOL this will be a most interesting day… I keyed in crunchy snow, and I got this… a recipe for snow pea pods   It wasn’t what I was looking for but it was so yummy looking .. this dish was grilled but  “me thinks” it will make a great salad.  Cherry tomatoes, Parmesan and GARLIC.  (erecipecards.blogspot.com ) .. below is the crunchy snow.. =^_^=

2d30d78bd2a092f0fd23044004a48993Where-ever you go, what ever you do today, Make it a day you’ll remember,  Make a determined effort to share sunshine and happiness with others.  A wishy washy attitude will not give you a good st art to the day.  Be proactive and positive.  YOU CAN DO IT!

Welcome another Sunday =^_^=

a52c8280d299ef8f3f0b8b4c11a1efd3In the last couple of years, many churches have closed their doors,  Driving in the country we  will often drive by a deserted church.  I’m happy to say that I have seen none in this sad state the above church was in when this picture was taken.  Here, in Canada, and I hope in other countries, some of these smaller churches are being bought and rejigged to house a family and or be a home for a couple or a single person….Whether  home or studio, they are reborn, given a new lease on life.  In my research it was a rather poignant discovery that there were just so many of these wonderful buildings now in a state of ruin.

From the state of many of these buildings, the changes happened over a period of time, not overnight.  Life is amazing when you think of just how many skills you once had, are now perhaps not as honed.  Take letter writing for instance,  I was an avid pen pal correspondent when I was younger.  In school we were encouraged to meet and write to new friends in another Province, State or country.  I loved writing a letter, drawing and enclosing small pieces of artwork to share with my friend.  Looking back I’ve had several from Holland (Nederlands)  with the age of social  media, and internet, our letters became less and less as we discovered the instant gratification of an e-mail.  Soon my mailbox took on a look much like the above picture.  If I didn’t write a  welcome letter did not come back. where once my penmanship was art in itself. now my husband has trouble reading my grocery list.

Small town Green_004When we stop doing something, the joy/fun and learning from that activity begins to recede, other activities take its place.  Are they as fulfilling?  Only you can answer that …For me I think I will sit down and write a few letters today.  I will do so with enthusiasm, my journey is coming full circle, I am again interested in the Nederlands, and I am reminded of my earlier friendships ones that, shame on me, I let fall away.

determinationThis is a picture that someone titled – Determination – it shows how “Nature” will always have its way, we may struggle in life, and feel that we are locked in a place we are not happy with, but in time, you will reach through the windows and doors of your confined space and  find open skies and warm sunshine. It is the “Way” (Tao) “God” – What will you do today… whatever you decide to do, walk with God! Be ONE with the Universe.

Friendships like gardens need to be tended and loved if they are to survive.

Once you do so, things will begin to happen.
Once you decide “I’m going to do it!” Do it you will. Your
enthusiasm and strength of conviction will ignite the energy around you. Your sincerity will be felt, God will give you aid when you need it the most…
Learning is a life long process….
Now get out there and share your smile with the world.
