my thanks! and…

Thank you. It seems I have successfully changed the e-mail for the blog, and I m receiving my notices. =^_^= touch wood. Now if only I can manage to keep it all in order in the gray cells. Think positive girl.!

Today I learned that I have had a complaining mind. Of course I knew I was capable of such a activity, what I didn’t know was that I have been vocal on many times, when I should have worked on 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.

PL Principle #2

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

PL Principle #3

It is a good friend that will point out something to you, that you have not been seeing in your behavior. I am grateful to have such a friend.

It is time to take a page from Mother Nature’s season, let some of my leaves fall and reacquaint myself with my roots. I have had too many leaves crowding my view, I need to stand back, and explore my truck and branches. Slowly and carefully, changes have taken place and it is time to look within.

I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

PL Principle #6

When cancer calls

nature bells corners SAWe’ve had some time now to think about and mull over the “visitor” we have in our home.  We didn’t go looking for our house guest, but then I don’t think that many people go in search of inviting cancer into their lives.

I personally have had to think about how I am reacting to (relating) to this visitor.  It is not a welcome guest, but… it is here, and we have to deal with it best we can.  I like to drive down country roads, when I want to think and talk to my “self”  Ottawa is a good place to be, since in almost any direction I go, I can be in country spaces surrounded by green space and untamed vegetation.

nature bells corners SA1There is a hodge podge of this and that.  nothing is planned, it just happens.  A patch of flowers, different shapes, sizes and colours of greens all come together to allow for crickets and critters of various shapes and species to mingle and cross paths.

nature bells corners SA2I’ve decided that cancer just didn’t happen, it found its way in, and was allowed to settle in grow and fester.  Ownership has to be taken for this.  Only in accepting this fact, can we move on and make friends with it.  Find out what it will take for it to go away, and then work faithfully, and with dedicated purpose to ease it out of our lives.

nature bells corners SA3Look carefully, there is a path.  It is hidden if you just glance, but if you take your time and look … you will find a way, a path to follow.  Life is always open to change.  Prayer and faith are the most direct path in our connection/relationship to/with God/Universe.  I believe that whatever the outcome, it will be what is best.

nature bells corners SA4Cancer is a world changer, we are blessed that we found out in time, that it had come into our lives.  Knowing, means that now we can work with the specialists and take the necessary steps to improve our lives, and work positively towards a healthier outlook and lifestyle.

Nature is not stubborn, it is resilient.  Acceptance and grasping the opportunity for change positively, will help us flow with the seasons.

card making

I stared at the blank screen for some time, I knew I had an idea, but that idea was not coming through loud and clear.  So I went in search of a picture, since I had already put in a title, I looked into the files where I have put some of the photos of cards I’ve done, when the urge hit to take a picture for my files.

bird card 1

Typically I do something admire it for a few minutes and let it go.

bird card 2

This bird arrived the other day,  I played around, stamping the image, and then cutting it out before colouring it.

rocky crab card

 

These pictures are not done to perfection, I was taking them just to capture the “idea’ Being a perfectionist at times, when I have to go back and look at something that I just did candidly, not with an intent, I’m often surprised at this side of me.  I lean towards lazy.  Where I began doing the cards on a lark, since I never really wanted to do cards for a pastime.  However, be careful with your projects.  The cute stamps and dies, soon had me thinking about what I could do with them.  Being the “artist” that I am, I was not interested in what other people have done with them, but rather, what I  want to do.  So…. of course, I end up with some weird combination.  But.. I like them and that is all that matters.

Rocky the crab really caught my attention.. so after I found Crabby here (Xmas card), I had to search high and low for a supplier that had Rocky on hand.  Heaven forbid that I wait for an order to come in.  That is the stubborn streak in me.

This is Rocky, totally different designer. Who knew that playing with dies,stamps and card stock could be so much fun.

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

PL Precept # 2   To live is to Express One’s Self

Every action in life, will bring about another action/reaction.  In being mindful when doing any activity, from years of following the Precepts and Principles of PL, I see when my “lessons” need to be reflected on, and changes considered.

There is one Principle, PL Principle # 9   I will not have a mind to be dishonest.  I never would have admitted to being dishonest, but I am, to myself, when I try to say or do something, that I know is not really REALLY how I should be doing something, cutting corners when crafting, using a glue that is handy, rather than get up and find the glue that is best for the project I’m working on,  Small things, but small actions add up.

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.

Snapshot 1 (6-3-2016 5-58 PM)

I’ve been days in trying to get this picture into a format that I could share with you.   It was taken the first day out with my new camera, I was so chuffed at getting to the water where the Queen’s swans had been released for the summer touring. There they were, so lovely so elegant. Snap snap and yes they were on the camera, BUT when I got home and tried to put them on the computer…nothing.

The fault was mine, not the camera,    I had not read through the instructions.. (yes, I know that there are those smiling and tsk tsk tsking now, and you know who you are) but hey, I’ve  used a camera all my life, yeah yeah yeah… but not this one.

PL Principle # 7    I will not have a mind to be hasty….etc…

PL Principle # 6   I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts…

Snapshot 2 (6-3-2016 6-09 PM)

What I had managed to do, was take 3-5 seconds of movie frames.. so to actually capture the screen in a format I could put in the blog, I had to use the software Movie Maker.

Pl Principle 2 reminds me to be creative and look for shortcomings in my OWN thinking and actions.

LOL…  I get a lot of practice. It may take me awhile, but I figure it out.  In time, I’ll get better.  I will because I want to.    Paradise is where we find it.

Tiger's nest monastery, Paro,Bhutan (by druzi)A monastery in Paro Bhutan called the Tiger’s Nest.

My day started with what I was finding to be a very vexing problem.  I was doing a project in Photoshop, (software program) and for some reason, something that I knew I could do, wasn’t happening.  No matter what I did or how I tried to make it work, it wasn’t working.  Stubborn to a fault, I was determined to get this project done, and off my “To Do list”

To reach the Tiger’s Nest one must travel a very winding and steep path up the mountain.  It is easily done when one takes the time to know the route, and to listen to the more experienced traveler.  When one is stubborn, we don’t always reach out, we instead waste time by repeating the process that we aren’t doing right in the first place.

A call to a wonderful talented friend in the UK. set me back on the path, this time with better coordinates. I had interpreted the numbers wrong at the very start, I assumed,…. based on that assumption, everything else I did was not working. My friend is a born leader/teacher, she didn’t do it for me, she redirected my thinking so that I was working with the right numbers, in so doing the calculations worked.

There are times when we need to reach out… we need to allow the input of another “voice”  Not to tell us what to do, but to guide us in making the right choices.

BRAVE THE CLIMB TO THE TIGER’S NEST Taktsang Palphug, commonly known as Tiger’s Nest, is a seventeenth-century structure clinging to a mountainside a dizzying 10,200 feet above Paro Valley. Why the name Tiger’s Nest? Because it’s said that in the eighth century, Guru Rinpoche flew to this exact spot on the back of a tiger

Funny how time slips away

places time forgot -monica roberts Pinterest (central coast)

This picture* was taken somewhere along the Central Coast, farmland,ocean, ocean, farmland with some nice mountains thrown in along the way for good measure.  I talk a lot about quiet, contemplation and the living life as it it presented to you.  Being unique each and every one of us, experiences life in a different way.  No matter how grown up I get,I never cease to be amazed at how much I am touched by another human beings courage, or determination in the face of challenging news or obstacles that are put in their paths.

No matter how difficult today seems, when you have that piercing moment of stabbing pain and doubt, remember that it is only a passing segment in you life, and that tomorrow will be another day.  Actually in an hours time, this moment will be part of history.

LOL how often of late do I hear, darn I forgot what I came in to do, or I know I left my glasses somewhere, for me its my car keys, they turn up, inanimate objects get put down, or left behind when something new (thought/phone call/distraction) comes along.

In PL, there is a Principle that I have to work hard at everyday to do my best to live in this way.  It is 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.   Principle #6 – I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.  There are only 21 principles in PL (Perfect Liberty) but by golly, each one packs a mitt full of lessons to work on …  My challenge every day is to try and bring each one into my life as my journey through the day progresses.

It helps me to be reminded to leave the past in the past, and to remember that what is important is what I am doing right now, this very moment. ( I smile thinking of you as I write this knowing that you will be reading my words sometime later today.)  A friend asked me who I am speaking to when I get personal … I’m speaking to each and ever pair of eyes that wander through my thoughts with me. I feel very blessed to have met you through this blog.  And believe me when I say that I appreciate each and everyone of you, I’ll never tire of our friendship, it will change, it will flow, and it will grow.  That is what life is all about.

WE are not inanimate objects, we are a life form, part of the Universe, we survive and regroup, we are like the moss and the lush green forest that reclaims what time forgets.  It is a slow process, but the growth is life.  Life is beautiful in all its stages.
