Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others, When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do and appreciate them that much more.

“Always there is much to see, and always, it is where we look, that we see what we take in, yet the picture is always so much more. Q “
Both Hermit and Cleo have had very similar life experiences, however, both handle their reactions to the journeys in a different way. Cleo likes to surround herself with golden jewels, precious stone, some more dazzling than others. While Cleo likes beds of woven wool from the softest fleece, and dresses in custom designs.. Hermit likes the simplicity of just BEING. They look very different, but they both have suffered the various experiences only living LIFE can give us.
We all deal with having our hopes dashed, a day of bitter disappointments, a thoughtless cutting word or sentence that is aimed at us. In the end, they are only moments in time. Once lived, we move on. Each person copes in his/her own way. But cope we do, it is built in to our DNA. Have faith, God is always with us, tomorrow is another day. ( PL Precept #11 )
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to World Peace.

The bridge was there, only I had never thought of actually crossing it. I loved the symbolism of the bridge, and the possibilities, it just never occurred to me to cross it.
Today I saw it in a different light, and the road beyond. It was simple really, all it took was the realization that “today” is really here. I can travel and explore beyond what, and where I have been. Life does go on. It is not by looking behind that we free our minds, but by moving ahead, into the world as it is now.
I thank my son and my friends for getting me to this part of my journey. Happiness is knowing you are loved. My husband will always be in my heart and part of who I am. That will never change. Today, he held my hand and opened the door, knowing the lessons and the love we shared will carry me through the tomorrows that are before me.
Happy start to another day! It is Thursday, the week has flown by. Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month. Ancestors Day.
PL calendar day 11
Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you. Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us. Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”. Mary Robinson.
Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are. I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.
When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

The bright colourful fabric you see was purchased and collected by a friend of my sister’s while on a shopping outing. I never met this friend, only heard of her through my sister. I was however, really taken by her selection of fabric, the choices she made, and the colours she was drawn to. This friend passed away last week, leaving a gigantic hole in the lives of her family and friends. It was sudden, no warnings, simply a chill, and she was gone.
We never know in life when a change will be made in our circle of friends and loved ones. It happens, life is what it is.
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.
“Ideals are like the stars we never reach them, but like the mariners of the sea, we chart our course by them” Carl Schurz
The 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.
Life 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.
