HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Aba0lVdE2c


"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude make sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

IDEA OF HAPPINESS

http://vimeo.com/39759932


"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."
                                                      -----Khalil Gibran-----


"I, not events have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  I can choose which it shall be.  Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.  I have just one day, today, and I am going to be happy in it."

ABOUT LOVE

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnDtxiNwDS8



"Love is always patient and kind.  It is never jealous.  Love is never boastful or conceited.  It is never rude or selfish.  It does not take offense and is not resentful.  Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth.  It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes."
                                                     -----Nicholas Sparks-----

"When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be."

LIFE

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcDCvQbOdig

"BE FEARLESS.  HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE RISKS.  GO WHERE THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES.  GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE EVEN IF IT MEANS BEING UNCOMFORTABLE.  THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED IS SOMETIMES FRAUGHT WITH BARRICADES BUMPS AND UNCHARTED TERRAIN.  BUT IT IS ON THAT ROAD WHERE YOUR CHARACTER IS TRULY TESTED.  AND HAVE THE COURAGE TO ACCEPT YOU'RE NOT PERFECT, NOTHING IS AND NO ONE IS -- AND THAT'S OK."

ACCEPTING YOURSELF

"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth.  Only you can be responsible for that.  If you can't love and respect yourself -- no one else will be able to make that happen.  Accept who you are -- completely; the good and the bad -- and make changes as you see fit, not because you think someone else wants you to be different."

FAVORITE QUOTE




One of my favorite quotes, so I have probably posted it before:

"Life is too short to wake up with regrets.   So love the people who treat you right.  Forget about those who don't.  Believe that everything happens for a reason.  If you get a chance, take it.  If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it."

IMAGINE A WORLD FILLED WITH INDIVIDUALS WILLING TO BOTH APOLOGIZE  AND TO ACCEPT AN APOLOGY.  IS THERE ANY PROBLEM THAT COULD NOT BE SOLVED  AMONG PEOPLE WHO POSSESSED  THE HUMILITY AND LARGENESS OF SPIRIT AND SOUL TO DO EITHER -- OR BOTH -- WHEN NEEDED?"

THINKING OF POETRY

"HOW DO I LOVE THEE?  LET ME COUNT THE WAYS."
                              -----Elizabeth Barrett Browning-----


I think this must be one of the most famous lines, ever written.


Elizabeth Barrett Browning (March 6 1806--June 29 1861)
She, and her husband, Robert were both well known poets.


Their story is immortalized in a play "The Barretts of Wimpole Street" by Rudolf Besier,  which Was produced in Cleveland, OH and also appeared on Broadway in 1931.
It was also made into two movies, black and white in 1934 and in colour in 1957.  
The play must have been popular, as a musical version, Robert and Elizabeth was produced in 1964. 


 The Barretts of Wimpole Street  became a  BBC TV series in 1982.  Quite a history!
I came accross one of her poems, this morning, which got me thinking about her history.

Loudon Wainwright III

During the day, when I am travelling in my car, I listen to CBC Radio.  On Friday, I was listening to Jian Ghomeshi, and he had as his guest Loudon Wainright III.  I don't know if people remember him, but he had a "hit" song in 1972 called:
"Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaN7xuAIjXI&feature=fvwrel
Anyway, apparently he has a new album out, "Older Than My Old Man Now"
He played a song from that album.  "The Here and The Now"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WfkBGs0kf8

He is an acquired taste, like Burl Ives, "An Itty Bitty Tear Let Me Down"

NORTHERN GATEWAY PIPELINE


 A Beautiful World/Devo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56u6g0POvo

"Some day the earth will weep,  She will beg for Her life,  She will cry with tears of blood.
  You will make a choice,  if You will help Her or let Her die, and when She dies, You will die too."
                                                      -----John Hollowhorn-----

                                                                      1932
I haven't gotten on my soapbox lately, but this is one of the issues that has been bothering me.
I am sure that most people remember the oil spill on the coast of Alaska, by the Exon Valdez.
Valdez is located in such a beautiful place.  There are Bald Eagles in every tree.  Don't ask the locals
about the oil spill, as they won't talk about it.  They are all too dependent on Exon.
Now the Canadian government wants to put in a pipeline to the coast, so that big tankers can come in
and fill up with oil.  This oil is bound mainly to China.  Great for the economy, but if there are any problems,
we are left here, to clean up the mess.

When, I am travelling in my car throughout my day,  I usually listen to CBC Radio.  It is always interesting, to
hear what kind of music they play.  It is funny though, that when you get out of your car, the last song that you
heard is the one that keeps running through your head, until you hear another one!  (These are all what I call
eclectic songs, CBC radio has to play a certain amount of Canadian content, so this selection of songs is not
relevent by itself.)

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.....

THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
          BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
      And sorry I could not travel both
       And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
  To where it bent in the undergrowth;


 Then took the other, as just as fair,         
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
  Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,


  And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
   Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
   I doubted if I should ever come back.


   I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
   I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

COMING HOME

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixP0d8klLvI


THE FAR-FARERS
               ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON


The broad sun,
The bright day:
White sails
On the blue bay:
The Far-Farers
Draw away.


Light the fires
And close the door.
To old homes,
To the loved shore,
The Far-Farers
Return no more.

MY FAVORITE RELATIONSHIP QUOTES

"TWO PERSONS WHO HAVE CHOSEN EACH OTHER OUT OF ALL THE SPECIES WITH A DESIGN TO BE EACH OTHERS MUTUAL COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT HAVE IN THIS ACTION, BOUND THEMSELVES TO BE GOOD HUMORED, AFFABLE, DISCREET, FORGIVING, PATIENT AND JOYFUL, WITH RESPECT TO EACH OTHER'S FRAILTIES AND PERFECTIONS TO THE END OF THEIR LIVES."
                                            -----Joseph Addison-----(1672-1719)

WHERE IN THE WORLD.......?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knjNjd-Ua4M

"iF YOU HAVEN'T FOUND IT YET, KEEP LOOKING.  DON'T SETTLE.  AS WITH ALL MATTERS OF THE HEART, YOU'LL KNOW WHEN YOU FIND IT, AND, LIKE ANY GREAT RELATIONSHIP, IT JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER AS THE YEARS ROLL ON."
                                                             -----STEVE JOBS-----


As with everything else, in this life, Love of job, person or just life in general,  they all come to you.
You get what you want.   You get what  you attract.  Attract all the good things in this life.  They are what we all want....Having life is a beautiful thing....ENJOY!


( If, you are into music, check out a great song, HAVEN'T MET YOU YET sung by Michael Buble.)


LIFE IS THE FIRST GIFT
           By Marge Piercy


Life is the first gift,
Love is the second,
And understanding the third.


The chance to love and be loved
Exists no matter where you are.


In matters of the heart,
Nothing is true
Except the improbable.


And what do all the great words come to in the end, but that?
I Love You--I am at rest with you--I have come home.

LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ONE HAPPY...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLY7yI1xV-M

"You have to ask yourself, 'does this item or thought or response move me closer to my vision for my best life?'  If it does,  great.  If it doesn't,  what is it doing in your life?"
                                                           -----Peter Walsh-----


"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.  that myth is more potent than history.  That dreams are more powerful than facts.  That hope always triumphs over experience.  That laughter is the only cure for grief.  And I believe that love is stronger than death."
                                                    -----Robert Fulghum-----


SAFETY IN NUMBERS


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebePx6x6xqU

"Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it.  That Factor is Attitude."
                                                    -----William James-----

When we talk about living our life....it is all in how we view what is happening.  We can make mountains our of molehills or we can accept what is happening and deal with it.  It is easier to go with the flow than fight the inevitable.

A NEW BEGINNING -- -- AGAIN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkb6IftyNRc

"Out with everything you don't need --  the junk, clutter, hang-ups and hurts -- and in with the fresh, fantastic, unencumbered life you've always wanted."
                                                                     -----OPRAH-----


How many times, in a lifetime, do we need to start over?  That, is a question, I ask myself, everyday.
We need to start over, as often as necessary to achieve the life that we want to live.


"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.  When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need."
                                                                  -----TAO TE CHING-----


Life changes on a daily basis....what we have, is not always what we want.  As we change and mature, our wants and needs change with us.  We are, who we are meant to be, not what others see within us.



This little story, is for all my readers that enjoy stories, we all get, what we need.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovi1ktvBL7w 


This next song is a reminder to myself, that all things that start out good but  end up as we don't want them to be, are not bad.  They are life's lessons learned and to be cherished for that very reason.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2012

Thursday March 8th is INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!


"Women are leaders everywhere you look--from the CEO of a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household.  Our Country was built by strong women and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes."

LOOKING FORWARD

"IT IS BETTER TO LOOK AHEAD AND PREPARE THAN TO LOOK BACK AND REGRET."
                                                     -----Jackie Joyner-Kersee-----


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfDq8eCLoGE&feature=related

There is always promise in each new day.  If we wake, to face it, the day will bring us what we are seeking.  We  need to be prepared for what each day brings to us.  When we  look at each and every moment, we can stand back, and say we have done our best with this new day.

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.  The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come."
                                                     -----Joseph Campbell-----

TRIBUTE TO DAVEY JONES

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okQe_lmM8OI&feature=related

Saying goodbye to Davey Jones is saying a final farewell to the sixties.  The lead singer of the singing group, the Monkees, a group created for a television show!


It is surprising, just how many of the entertainers of the sixies have now passed on...It is an era unto itself.   The sixties definitely had a sound of its own.  It is always interesting when music from the past makes its way into the music of the present.


RIP Davey Jones!

MARCH: A NEW MONTH

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUzafEhjMYs

"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings.
-----Joyce Kilmer, Spring-----


I always like to think of a new month, as a new beginning.  We can begin any time that we want, but starting a new month, seems to put a fresh face on things.  Either way, it is something to look forward to.  The future is always beckoning.

"I HAVE A DREAM..."

"I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

ALWAYS LEARNING....

"ALWAYS WALK THROUGH LIFE AS IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN AND YOU WILL."
                                                           -----Vernon Howard-----


If we lose the ability to learn, we may as well, forget life, as we know it.  It is easy to "talk the talk" but a different matter entirely, to "walk the walk".
I am afraid that I am getting a bit tired of people, that can not do as they say.  I want to just cover my ears so I can not hear the "blah blah blah"  Come on out and say what you mean, maybe I do not want to hear it, but at least it is honest.

WOMEN ARE FROM BLOOMINGDALES AND MEN ARE FROM SEARS

DOES THAT TITLE SOUND FAMILIAR?  It is a play on words from the book,  "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus"  by John Gray, PHD.

Just think about it.  Bloomingdales represents high fashion,  forward thinking, and independent  women, while Sears, is the practical, get what you need and get out, style, of most men.  Shopping is one of the things that usually puts men and women in two different corners.  I say usually, but I have met a few exceptions!

 If we were all the same, life would be boring...
There have been many comments made, about the differences between men and women.  Some are just comical, some are seriously true.  There are a lot of myths about the differences between the sexes.  It is up to each individual, to decide, for himself, or herself, which is fact or fiction....

This is a cute short about some of the differences:

LETTING GO...AND MOVING ON...

"We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive a happy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, we never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we can't turn the hourglass over."
                                                               -----UNKNOWN-----
        
We all wonder what the future holds.  Is it predestined, or does it just happen....
If we don't go on, and turn the next page.....we will never know....
We will just have to consult, our inner "Crystal Ball."


I am always surprised, how many others have pondered this subject...it seems to be, one of lifes little mysteries.

VALENTINES DAY, FEBRUARY 14TH

"VALENTINES DAY  was named after  Saint Valentine, a Christian Martyr,  by Pope Gelasius in 496 AD.
VALENTINES DAY became associated with Romantic Love in the times of Geoffrey Chaucer in the Middle Ages."


Why should it not be VALENTINES DAY, every day of the year?
Why should we not celebrate LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS every day, not for just one day,
 of the year!   When it comes to LOVE, what are our priorities?

ISLAND IN THE SUN

" Don't think there's much point in bemoaning the state of the world unless there's some way you can think of to improve it.
Otherwise, don't bother writing a book; go and find a tropical island and lie in the sun."
                                  -----PETER SINGER-----

SANITY: What is it?

"TO BE, OR NOT TO BE, THAT IS THE QUESTION........"
                                          -----William Shakespere,  Hamlet-----

Have you ever wonderered about Sanity?  Or, contemplated Insanity?


What is sanity?  Is the world we live in, sane?  Do we really believe that what we see, is reality?
These are just some of the things that I have been asking myself, recently.

SORRY,  IT HAS JUST BEEN ONE OF THOSE DAYS......

LOOK TOWARDS THE SOURCE

"Learn the art of  PATIENCE apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of goals.
IMPATIENCE breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure.
PATIENCE creates confidence, decisiveness, and rational outlook, which eventually leads to success."


                                       -----BRIAN ADAMS-----


We can say much about Patience.  We know that we should have it.  We are told that Patience is a virtue....Like most things Patience is easier said than done.  Let's just say, it is something we should all be working on....A work in progress.......

ANY OTHER TIME

"The mindless junk of your past crowds out opportunities and sets pointless limitations.  Move out the junk, and create room for the rest of your life.  Ultimately, It's not just a question of tidying your house; it's a question of liberating your heart."


                                                           -----Merlin Mann-----


We spend, far too much time, on the inconsequential things in our lives.  We fret about the past and worrry about the future, and TODAY, just seems to get neglected.  TODAY, is the only day that we have.  Take  the sum total of our every day lives, look at it, and take it for what it is worth.  The past is just that, the past.  Learn from it, and move on.  The future we Know is coming. (all things being equal)   Hey, look forward to it!  But today, is now, savor every minute of it.  Do what needs to be done.  Never let it be said, we have wasted our time.  Enjoy today, it may be the only one that we have.


.....something to remember....

KEEPING THE NEW YEAR GOING

"BE YOURSELF, TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE."


                          -----Emma Bunton-----


There are new year resolutions, then, there is the truth about it all.  Take each day as it comes,
enjoy every day.  Each day is as precious as the last.....We spend too much time, trying to change things.  We forget that each day, is really all that we have, so we may as well live it to the fullest.

LOOKING AT LIFE

LIFE IS WHAT WE MAKE IT!


"Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.  It means that you've decided to look beyond imperfections."
                                                             -----T. Bernard-----

It is the way we look at our life, that make all the difference in how it turns out!

A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON A NEW YEAR

"We must not allow the clock and the calender to blind us to the fact that each moment of life
is a miracle and a mystery."

                                        -----H. G. WELLS-----

Here we are, back to the same old song and dance. Life is too short, not to live it to the fullest.
If we were to live each day, as if it were our last, I am sure we would have a better life!
