You are you others are others
You have your own way of doing things and others have their way of doing things Don’t worry about what other people say. Simply take care of the task at hand
Good morning everyone, we are beginning a new week with more sunshine. I woke up thinking about how often I am struck with the fact many people spend their waking hours searching for something that they already have. Reality. Think about it, we live it every moment of our lives. The key is for us to be aware of our true selves and to take responsibility for the lives we live.
Take time to look beyond the immediate vista before you. Often you will discover there is a whole new “happening” within your reach and in your realm of possibilities.
Life is a kaleidoscope, a myriad of natural wonders that the Universe provides in abundance for us to discover and enjoy.
Take yourself out today for a walk into happy spaces lets work together to make this world a happier place. Share your smile with a happy heart.

Travel down an old country road on a lazy afternoon just two old friends, out for a drive. A country lass and an urban miss. The old hydro lines are what caught my eye. We stopped so I could get a shot. We were not that far off the beaten track, yet, the fields of green, and the old lines, gave me a feeling of another time and place,.
Best of all I was with someone who had grown up in the country, and loved the fields of crops and the newly cut hay just as much as I did. We would sigh with contentment when we passed peaceful gathering of cows enjoying the shade of sprawling trees sheltered by outcrops of large boulders and rocks.
Too often I am traveling down a major highway or road to a destination, this was a just because drive. No deadline, no specific time frame, just a drive, with a stop for lunch at a marina along the way. talking was optional.
Be kind to yourself. Make time for you. Lazy summer days are few and far between when we live a busy lifestyle.
That day we had mostly sunshine, but the rain did fall, we got the black rolling clouds, and vivid display of lightning. Made our day complete. Have you ever smelled the lush green meadows after a rainfall? Experienced the return of the sun and clear blue skies after an explosive down pour. the change in temperatures during all this variety of weather. Mother Nature works her magic in very special ways.
Get out and enjoy the day, make today a special day.

PL Day 15 Being Attentive makes life more enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
Had I been paying careful attention at the time I put this picture in my family folder, I would have noted who sent it to me, and where they were at the time =<>=
That said, isn’t this just the most magnificent of artistry.
Be at peace with the world today.
Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute. And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.
Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t. They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.
There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered. This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them. Until I actually say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.
Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap. They instinctively know, that there will be no sharing.
Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily? Are we considerate of others? Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day. Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.
Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync. This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere? Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.
looking out across the water on a dull day, and seeing a crystalized tree, thanks to the cold mist.
there is beauty in every day, every moment, and every second, we need only look with our hearts.
Day 30 PL Calendar
USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER
Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.
Standing under the branches of the towering trees
looking out, to my left and then my right
shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through
outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer
how can I cry, it is
so peaceful, so serene
alone with my thoughts, surrounded by nature’s embrace
life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace
a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD
On the 11th. we celebrate our ancestors. Through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors, asking for continued guidance and protection that we may continue to live the PL “Way”
There are days, when Mother Nature provides us with a magical world, at such times I feel so alive, so blessed . Cherish each moment, we only live them once.
There is beauty, and quiet serenity in the loving arms of Universal LOVE. God is Love.
