Woman!

December is a month of many celebrations, often personal birthdays get lost in all the other goings on around this time of year. I know several women with birthdays end of November and in the month of December. This is for you ladies!

Men I know the above says women, but it applies to all of us, no matter the gender, or preference. Life IS.
We are all one, terms that debase or try to subject another to a “lesser” position in life, can only be made by a person who is not qualified or lacks understanding that we ARE all ONE. Somewhere in my youth, I heard an expression, about… people who live in glass houses, should not throw stones..? is that it…. If you know the correct wording, please share it, in the comments below..

The joy of expression is in the process. Of course results are important but let’s not lose sight of the rue joy that be found in the actual process. Face every task with wholehearted enthusiasm.

disappointments

Disappointments happen. Often, a lot, no matter, they happen, and when they do, you feel a certain loss. The dictionary defines it ” sadness or displeasure caused by the non fulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations” “a disappointing person or thing”

It happens, and we can either shut ourselves away from the human race and try to avoid any other such moments, or we move on. In PL we learn to move on, we accept it happened, and learn from the experience.

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

Perfect Liberty Principle # 2

See, it is my decision to let it ruin my otherwise happy day, or to change direction, move on, and share time and space with “happy” moments/friends, and or, create new interests, there is a whole world to discover.

Always, the ball is ours, we own the results of our choices,

I will live with a mind of appreciation toward others and things.

PL Principle #3

It is early in the day, there are so many possibilities before us, enjoy your day, may it be productive and happy.

Sunday greeting

ice sculpture -Ottawa

Before everyone starts to panic, that is not from this year. OK take a deep breath, breathe in slowly, and then exhale. Snow that came, most of it is now gone, we have had lovely weather. In fact for most of the summer, and fall, I thought the weather was really a pleasure.

In my recollections of last winter, I found it to be rather fun and easy to deal with, except for the odd storm that kept everyone in and off the roads. Dressed properly Canadian winters can be exciting and beautiful. Stop trying to find my bio to see what planet I’m from, I live under the same sky you do, and I get rained, snowed on, just like you. Difference is I don’t let the weather determine whether or not I am having a good day or not.

It is a blessing to be busy. Enjoy being busy and continue to seek more work. Being busy is God’s way of showing you that you are loved.

In winter, when I had to be at work for 8, if there was a storm I would leave really early to avoid getting caught in the rush. One year I remember X country skiing to the hospital so I would be there on time. I loved the challenges of my work, and I felt alive making my way to work, skiing along snow packed roads, and past stalled vehicles.

Years later, after I retired from the hospital, I was working downtown in an HR capacity. Travel was slow from the Quebec side to downtown Ottawa if there was snow or other traffic delays. So I left my vehicle at home and began walking, to and from, no matter the weather. It was exhilarating and excellent for the health and fitness part of my life.

Life is what we make it, YOU decide if it will be a good day or not.

ps Wednesdsay

My earlier wordless blog, was a fun snapshot I had, that simply had me smiling at the funny things we do when we are young and not caught up in being “prim” “proper” “lady like” and all the other wordings adults have to reign in the innocent playfulness we have as children.

As we mature, and develop, we soon discover that part of us needs to be held back, or kept in the shadows, because “it” may not be appreciated by others. However, we are who we are, and it is not healthy to always try to supress our “child” or “drama”.. drama is not always negative, it is about emoting and expressing feelings.

When we live doing our best not to hurt or slight others taking care to be mindful, avoiding arrogance and conceit, then the simple pleasure of pure expression, can be fun… silly, and inane. When was the last time you made a silly face? Just for fun

To see the snapshot, you will have to visit the first blog of the day =^_^=

11.11.19

The early morning light, was not going to get any brighter, yet I found the sight of the single tree still standing with its crisp mantle of dusty orange leaves, appealing.

falling snow invites the visitor to linger

I found today to be beautiful, it was moody, it was stirring, most of all it was full of expressions waiting to be discovered.

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.

Perfect Liberty 2019,11

The 11th. Ancestors day ceremony, is one of my favourites, today’s service was powerful

Voices in unison we prayed, heads bent in reverence and respect for our loved ones, and those who came forward and went into battle to keep us all free from those who would do us harm.

Where-ever you are in the world, please continue to pray for world peace.

A view of winter past

.. this view is from Michigan.. Friends of mine, who live in Michigan, shared this picture with me last year.

Yes, I could have gone out and shot a picture of the lovely snow on my tree branches and in my back yard.. but my skyline is a cold overcast gray. Choices.

My day starts with reading of PL’s reminder of the day. (From PL calendar*)

Your enthusiasm will pave the way. Your enthusiasm will fuel your efforts and creativity and will spread it to those around you, driving new developments.

Perfect Liberty 2019.7

When we start the day with a purpose, it helps us make choices throughout the day. Choices help us to grow. If we make one that doesn’t exactly work out as we had planned, than we simply learn from the experience, and move along. There are no bad days, busy days yes, living each moment with positive action, is always rewarding. Life is living, and living IS life.

In sickness and in health, till death do us part.

For those interested, the 2020 calendars are out, they make great gifts to friends, the cost will be the same as it was last year. If your purchasing a number of them and cannot pick them up at the church, there will likely be a postage cost …
