When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is LOVE
Lana del Ray
Happiness is the china shop’ love is the bull
You are all much appreciated .. love is the ingredient you bring to my life. Have a happy, productive day everyone!
Quality time with good friends is a very special way to enhance our daily living during these “challenging ” times. My heartfelt thanks to Eclair the owner and creative force behind this very enjoyable venue. Behind every avatar is a human being with a heart and soul … the warmth and glow of friendship that was shared last night was truly a real “xmas” in July.
Silver and I had a great time .. Cheers to everyone, and Sandie thanks again for the great set!
The greatest things in life – truth-creativity-imagination – love- kindness – compassion – are already inside us, and they’re all free.
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.
Bonnie is away celebrating the Thanksgiving (Canadian) long week-end with family in other parts of the Province. She saw this and stopped to capture it, knowing she would delight me to pieces when I opened her e-mail.
I noted Bonnie you remained a lady, and unlike me, didn’t go over and take pictures all around the vehicle, and even try to waylay the owner. =^_^=
Friends are worth their weight in gold, and more. Have a good day everyone. Ancestor’s day service will begin at 10:a.m. this morning.
Colourful Chinese Lanterns, to celebrate the news that friends are coming up this way to see the fall colours. First they will go to Nova Scotia, the fall colours there will be amazing especially around the Cabot Trail.
Thinking of the good news, and the wonderful artist array that Mother Nature is laying out these days, I am off to see what of her beauty I can capture. Yay another new day!
Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of Others. Always be true to yourself in your words and actions. Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.
I was reading a friends blog recently, he lives in Japan, and writes about the use of and the caring of good carving tools https://covingtonandsons.com/2019/10/04/sharpening-part-10-the-ura-%e6%b5%a6/ While reading his blog I was hit with the similarity of looking after one’s tools, and the maintaining of friendships. When we don’t look after our tools, they stop performing for us the way they were intended to perform. Especially a carving tool. A good crafts person, knows that it is essential he/she maintain his/her tools in good working order if the quality of work is to be preserved.
When a friendship is taken for granted, or mistreated, will it withstand the neglect or at times, miscommunication. In PL we learn that life is about us, and that we re responsible for our feelings. So I muse on if I feel slighted, or taken for granted, then it is up to me, to what…. dismiss the situation, put it aside and move on.
Not let it happen again, simply do not put your self in the position again. hmmmm the little voice says…. you could miss out on something…. you enjoy that friend. Did they intentionally set out to hurt you. The answer is no. It is simply their actions, were not appreciated by my sensitivities.
Darn being a philosopher is hard. I likely will opt for a good cry. Have a good nights sleep, and tomorrow, begin another day.
Now please everyone, don’t be sad or feel that I am blue.. I am living the moment, and will then move on. Life is too beautiful and inspiring, tomorrow I will be wide eyed and living my adventure.
gentle falling rain, will eventually, etch its presence in rock.
a shadow will change with the movements of the sun
a cloud is temporary
love is forever and unconditional
and, I am what I am, a temporary traveler in this space and time
take flight under the dark skies or stay and stand on guard
the winds blew, the sky started to clear
the bears danced in place, and we continued on
in Mother Nature’s sweet embrace
sharing in another wonderful day.
Each day is another new adventure. Step out and greet the day. When the heart is open, you will always be amazed at how awesome life on earth can be. With love and friendship by your side, a cloudy day, becomes amazing.
Last few days of tranquility, soon there will be outdoor activity with the smell of the fresh new growth, sunlight warm on bare arms and winter pale legs. When friends post the sights and wonders of their backyards, and places that they can wander and enjoy, it brings me such a joy, such shared happiness. Friends are what makes our day-to-day so magical. Each one is like a jewel, with its very own facets and brilliance. Unlike an object, friends are priceless.
I know I keep repeating how much I appreciate and love you all, can’t help it. You all bring such richness into my life that I am at a loss to explain why I have been so blessed.
Blessed I am.
Day 22 of the PL Calendar
Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcomings in others Even though you may not agree with someone, complaining about it doesnt’ help. remember, “We are all human,” and accept each person for who they are.
My thanks to a dear and wonderful friend, who was out with his camera and came across these new blooms. Spring blossoms are so welcoming, so darn full of determination .. their crisp green and vibrant yellows peeking out after one of Nature’s last snow flings.
Good Morning, Bom Dia!!
PL calendar day 14
Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you
Always be mindful of the situation of others, not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.
“Any fool can criticise, condemn and complain, – and most fools do, But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving,” Dale Carnegie
