what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

determination

korea 1

PL calendar day 15

Live with firm determination,  that “this will turn out for the best” Everything in this world progresses and develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best

Someone once asked me did I ever get tired of being a “Pollyanna”  for those of you unfamiliar with that expression, it usually was used to describe someone who was always cheerful and looking for positives.  I like being happy, and I work towards that goal.  I sometimes miss the mark by a long mile and another times it takes only a smile to bring my happy back.

That does not mean that I don’t feel disappointment, and at times, totally sad and have no choice but to live through my emotion of that moment.  It passes, meanwhile, my body, my mind needed that cleansing.   PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional    Live the moment and move on.

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in relativity

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.

My love and appreciation to you all.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and others

 

 

lost and found

butterfly huawei1

If I were an object, I would say I was lost

if broken I would hope to be fixed

found by a stranger, I hope they would rescue me

but, \I am not an object,

I am not lost, nor am I broken

So I don’t need to be found, or fixed

Life is not playing a trick on me

I am in mourning, lost in my own thoughts

realizing that I am in uncharted territory

like a butterfly I am buffeted by the wind

there is no place to hide

on the outside I shimmer and shine

while inside I dip and dive

from the sublime to mediocre moments

while I wait for the  painful reality of now

becomes tomorrow

and another day.

I miss what was

no more no less

Q


Do I feel stressed, no, but tonight I am sad, in May it will be a year since my husband passed…I am overwhelmed at times, at just how much awareness I have of how love is a blessing in all its forms. Thank you my dearest friends, when you reach out, it is a balm and a reminder that love is Universal – You are appreciated and fill my heart with gratitude.  I love you!

follow your heart

mar 3

Wow.. a barely in focus picture of a wall with ice. Yet this is what struck me yesterday as thought-provoking.  I was going through a McDonald’s drive through.  When the bigger of the lot had me reaching for the camera.  Of course I had one eye on the line ahead of me .. while fumbling for the iPhone in my cluttered backpack.

march 3 mcDonalds InnisCan you see the little eye and the bird’s head peeking out at the bottom…  Yesterday the whole ice sculpture made me smile and gasp in pleasure.. (I know, I don’t get out much)

All this to say, “to each his/her own” we are all so different and unique from one another.  Truth be told, often even to ourselves.

I even had the ice on the left, wanting to be with the others that hung in a group further along the wall.  imagination is wonderful.

You have all heard me say time and time again, I like being “happy”

A lesson I am learning especially since my husband passed away, is that happiness is where you find it, and is at times redefining itself.  That joy of turning to your partner and without a word, you both know, one of you just had a burst of “happy” or an inspiration, is gone, only the memory remains.  Time, love and faith, will heal these moments, but for now….   What is, is.

PL Calendar day 4

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

meaning – loss

2015b

What??  I don’t know, back in 2015 I saw this photo and was intrigued at what it was, what it meant, where it came from.  If I found out, I didn’t record it, so in my files this is what I found, now Feb. 24. 2019

Doing a tidy up, I found a card a group of friends sent me when my husband passed away, “on the loss of your husband”  Store bought, from the American Greeting co. in the States, I reread the message.

“They say life goes on just give yourself time to mourn, and accept and to heal,  Though none of that offers much comfort right now with the sorrow and loss you must feel…  but, there in your heart where you miss him the most where friendship and love never cease, somehow you know that he’d  want nothing more than to see you find comfort and peace”         

As I digested the words of sympathy my friends had sent me, my eyes fell on today’s PL calendar, for day 24

Things that happen to us all have a meaning

Everything that happens to us happens for a reason.  Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.

It is with gratitude that I start my day, and appreciation for you my friends who keep in touch, drop in,  the distance, the miles, time zones, disappear, when I say I appreciate each and every one of you.  I do.  My heart sings with joy when you say hi…  the like button, the thoughtful hellos, and cheerful input,  the nudge now and then, all blessings.

“I have walked that long road to freedom.  I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way.  But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. ” Nelson Mandela

statement pictures

reaction

This picture along with the next one, were in my inbox this morning.

pasengers

Both had me looking at the screen,  with multiple thoughts zinging through the old gray cells.  The caption came with the picture.

I have too many different scenarios that come to mind when I want to write my own take on these.  I love the potential these offered. Whoever started this sharing of creativity would be fun to catch up with.. to see how they came up with the idea.. what sparked their  artistic “expression”

The top drawing.. yes! I could relate to posting that a couple of times.. Of course silently in my head… I wish I had the light bulb in my art drawer to have come up with that one.

I am thankful for all of my blessings, and gall darn it… I truly appreciate the brilliant expression of others too.  How about it… do the above pictures inspire a heading from you???

Today is the 21st everyone Thanksgiving service is at 7PM tonight.

21- Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now

NOW is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become “NOW”  Be thankful for everything.

midnight

midnight series d

Good morning, very early morning =^_^=  Bom dia  -domingo 17th,

At one time I would write, a pen always near by I would let the words flow, then sit back and discover where  or what my thought process was up to.  Now I am more likely to pick up a tube of paint, bottle of ink, or some other visual media that will allow my creativity to express in abstract.  Today I visited my favourite fine arts store and explored the new offerings that were set out to tempt and tease.

Interestingly what I came away with, was not what I had gone in to look at.  With spring around the corner, I was looking to add to my neon, spring collection.  Colours that would call out the fresh mint of new leaves, or the soft bunny colours and little baby chicks.  But no, I was drawn instead to colours that were metallic, pearlized and in the realm of steam punk maybe?

midnight series c In playing with the colours when I got home, I thrilled at the texture and fluidity of the paints.  So happy with my choices that I didn’t get to play with all of them, because, the testing, turned out to excite me just the way it was.

midnight series b

Midnight is the witching hour (or so they say)  I put on YouTube and listened to old favourites, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, and looked again at the pages in my Art Journal, even the sheet of mixed media that I started on, looks too good to mess with.  Wonder how I will feel when I wake up and look at it again. =^_^=  Meanwhile.. you got it.. I am happy in the moment.
