After a visit to one of the hospitals I’m  truly overwhelmed at the number of “sick” people contained in a maze of corridors and multiple floors.  This being only one of the large hospitals in this city.

In Japan one of the wellness programs they introduced was to spend more time with and around trees.  I guess this came out in the early 80’s  Japan in known for its spring time blossoms, people flock to the parks to take pictures and enjoy the refreshing ambiance of trees in early bloom.

Not spending a lot of time confined to a hospital, or home environment it is  an eye opener to visit one of these places.  Yes my Mother had been hospitalized, but my attendance there was focused on my Mother, and where I would have noticed or seen that the place was humming with activity and a lot of people, the thought came and went.  Today I had  occasion to have to track down my sister-in-law, she had been moved from the area I had been told she would be in.  The hospital is big it has grown and expanded over the years, even staff were not sure exactly where or how to get to certain rooms, didn’t help that you had to know if you were in the right “section” never mind floor.  Like a Chinese menu, there are  multiple choices.

I came away with the determination to work harder at obtaining and maintaining a good health report card.  Like most, I can cheat at sneaking in a dessert or extra starchy snack, now I have a visual reminder of where I do not want to be.

What about you…   are you setting attainable goals, then sticking to them?

PL Principle #8   I will not have a mind to be greedy

PL 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.

Fitness

Fitness, what does the word conjure up in your mind when you think of fitness, is it your weight, your overall body’s ability to work out, run, walk, do?  What exactly does it mean to you.  I went to the gym first thing this morning after the feeding of the dogs.  Somehow my body seems to prefer waking up to the familiar routine of walking and spinning.  To those of you who have traveled along with me for some time, you remember years ago when I first started at TAC (www.theottawaathleticclubs.ca ) how fired up I was, enthusiastic was an understatement. I was going 7 days a week, you couldn’t keep me away.  Thankfully that was back then, now I am much more realistic. ah ha ah. am I hearing some snickers out there.

fish,salmon

After my workout, I come home and have fresh fish for breakfast.  When I looked for fish recipes I was surprised to find that there were so few plain fish, steamed, or baked recipes, with NO batter, or not drenched in butter or sauces.  Anyway, I beg pardon I am digressing.  Being back at the gym I find myself more “intune” with a part of me that somehow got very lazy over winter, and truth be told, rather boring.

motivation

Ok so I won’t be doing that anytime soon, but I am working out, and I have signed up with a personal trainer. Michelle from Epic Fitness, a smaller gym that’s focus is on personal training. epicfitnessottawa.com  Why 2 different gyms, because they are so totally different. Yes they basically are both gyms but their approach and their styles are different.  I tried a PT at TAC earlier on my “fitness” journey, but it just didn’t work out, I obviously was not ready for the guidance or really open to allowing someone else help me.

friendship

Fitness is not only the physical part  of your life, it involves a total commitment from ALL of you.  If our Makoto (sincere effort) isn’t 100% then no matter who you are working with, they will encounter a resistance.  You may not even know you are doing it, but for you to succeed  at achieving your goal, you must partner with the trainer in a relationship much like a friendship so you can accomplish what you set out to do.

C.S. Lewis said >Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival. <

Good Morning everyone! Friday is well on its way.  Enjoy the day!  Be yourself it is the only way!

 Love and Blessings… Oyashikiri

Which road to take.  It is a brand new year, let’s set higher goals and work to improve ourselves.  The Joy of Expression is in the Process. When each day is a new canvas, goals are much easier to attain.

World Peace

World Peace

I’ve found myself wanting to be back in Japan, even though I was surrounded by people there were nooks and crannies and quiet places where the serenity of the moment was overwhelming. You literally walked away your stress, or day to day hum drum thoughts that weighed you down when your busy mind started to natter.
The goal in PL is to strive for, and achieve, World Peace.
To attain such a goal, we have to begin with our “Selves”

No one can change us, we alone can do that. I think lately I’ve let the every day world “pull my chain” or interfere too much with my daily meditations. Yesterday’s teaching on the PL calendar was.  Let’s choose to use words that are kind, polite and courteous. Kind words will bring about a kind heart.   BEAUTIFUL WORDS MAKE FOR A BEAUTIFUL SOUL

That is what resonates with me today. today’s teaching is Act with Enthusiasm.. If you put your whole heart into whatever you do, you will be able to appreciate any task at hand.take initiative in tackling your work or tasks.

Good thoughts to start the day with don’t you think.

Robert H. Schuller wrote a spiritual autobiography that he called Prayer – My Soul’s Adventure with God –
He wrote.. (Psalm 51:10-12)
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from yolur presence
And do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous spirit.

Blessing everyone, be God inspired today!

Life is like Art Art is Life

<img src=”https://dymoonblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/2013-03-26-garage-sale-9-13-002.jpg&#8221; class=”size-full” alt=”Life is like Art Art is Life” />

In life, in art, in projects, we get what we put into the task.
Do you sometimes skip a step here and there, cuz you’re in a hurry, then wonder later why something didn’t turn out quite like you expected?
Do you plan the event to get the event over with? Or is there a purpose to that event?
Is there a goal in mind, are their expectations?

Put your heart into whatever you do. If you are going to do something, you mas as well do it with enthusiasm. You will gradually begin to see what makes it interesting, and perhaps exceed expectations.

Treat Today as if it is your First Time Around.
Just because you succeeded in the past, doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly today.

Today is today, NOW

Love fills my heart for each and everyone of you.

Artist and Holidays

Artist and Holidays

It is September right. If you are a craft person, or an artist, what are you doing right now? working on Halloween or Xmas? If like me your passion to create has you sewing, making, baking, pickling, sculpting, painting your studio/craft room has got to be one big jumble of on the go projects.
Some of my friends are very organized, I myself am a clutter pro, don’t touch my “mess” cuz I know where everything is. Sign at door should say, “enter at your own risk”.

Why am I telling you all this you ask? Because I know that many of you out there are my mirror image.. we tidy, get everything organized when we are in non productive mode.. but, once we start on our projects, there is no stopping us, time disappears, and the ideas are coming fast and furious.

If we stop to look around, we could get discouraged, however, **The key to success is to continue without giving up ** You need to continue and persevere to make your wishes and goals come true. Once you start something, see it through to the end.** this is a PL teaching that works for me every time. Sometimes I need to read it again, when I hit a lull, but by practicing PL every day, I get a lot more done.

I go to bed smiling and feel the smile in my sleep, Life is good.. and I’m here to share it with you. Creativity makes the world go round, when we accomplish something, we feel good, and our smiles work their magic for miles around us.

Smile, today is the start of a brand new day. Loving Blessings to you all!

Letting Go of Your Ego will Make You a Stronger Person

If you are always caught up with power,status or appearances, you will have a hard time accomplishing anything of worth. Let go and express yourself fully.

PL teaching for day 4
Are we really the person we see when we look in a mirror? Are you who you want to be? Through PL consultations, we can learn to apply specific teachings to such questions, allowing for a more positive direction towards our goals.
