Friendship ~ The Truth of It!

image

“The thing about true friendship is the absolute truth that flows from the heart. No exceptions. It just is.” ~Plh

Be a true friend. Care, make a difference – where it counts. There is always room in our hearts for another true friend, always.

But I have no friends“, you say. Then go help someone. Help several someones, but help because you want to. Set no conditions, no requirements.

You’ll discover friendship along the way. And when friends come, nurture the relationship. Share, care and be there!

It will become a true friendship.

Know there are those who will use your friendship, taking advantage of your good will. Do not be discouraged for they do not really understand.

Help as you can with good intent. They will be the ones who decide the direction your friendship will take.

And always remember … “a friend in need is a friend indeed” – Be there!

Every Living Thing Has a Story to Tell.

image

Every living thing on our planet has an involvement they share in. A story to tell. Even those that are silent“~Plh

To use a bit of a metaphor here, many of us have moved too far away from our roots. And its hurting us … as a species. We are as irrevocably connected to the flora, fauna and wildlife as they are to us. Fact, not some idealistic fantasy.

The biodiversity health of our planet is dependent on the ongoing natural interaction of all life. And for quite awhile we’ve been messing with nature inappropriately.

Something we all need to not just be thinking more about, but actually doing something. NOW. We need to begin today. Its important for all our tomorrows.

In fact, probably more than we realize.

Accomplishing the Impossible!

image

Walt Disney once said “I’m doing the difficult today, tomorrow I’ll do the impossible.”

Was he crazy? No one can do the impossible. Or can they? Actually there’s  a bit of a dichotomy here. What he actually meant was “what appears to be impossible becomes possible – once accomplished.”

We all know of stories about ordinary people like you and I, who figure out how to do seemingly impossible things and become successful in the process.

I’m happy to share their secret here:
They believe in themselves.
They believe in their goal.
They never give up.

Okay, what impossible thing are you going to accomplish tomorrow?

You know the secret now, so there’s no one to stop you…

…Except yourself. Your life, your choice. Make it be what you want it to be … start with the impossible. You can do it!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great tomorrow and remember to always take care of you. If you’re not okay, you can’t be there for others.

Keep Playing Your Song

image

The music in your soul comes from your loving heartor perhaps it’s the other way around, no matter, keep playing your beautiful song for everyone to hear.” Plh

Never forget you are uniquely you.

You’re special, individual,  and one of a kind.

And I find that to be absolutely wonderful.

Have a great weekend and remember … take care of you.

Being Female ~ Man’s Dichotomy

image

The thing is
we (females) struggle with our place, in the order of things, every day. And men struggle with it too.

We understand the biology of things regarding the female body and the emotion of things, regarding falling in love. Even the spiritualty of things.

It’s the forth aspect of things where we run into problems. That is to say “perceived societal roles” versus our own personal desires for ourselves.

And while we females work this out (and we are), it remains difficult and confusing for all of us.

Perhaps more so for men than women. Bottom line here (I love the term “bottom line” because it means we’re  getting to the heart of the issue) I sum up in the follow haiku:

being female
independently human
man’s dichotomy

Thank you for stopping by, it’s almost the weekend, hang in there

A Wish ~ Your Unfulfilled Reality!

image

A wish is an, as yet, unfulfilled reality just lying in wait foryourright moment to make it happen.” ~ Plh

There are those who believe in fate and there are those who believe nothing will happen unless you’re out there making it happen.

For myself, I think it’s somewhere in between the two. Wishing and dreaming often set in  motion the creative application of your imagination. This, in turn, can inspire within you a passion to achieve – the inspiration you’ve been waiting for to make things happen.

The only thing left then, is for you to believe you can do it. And of course you can!!!! For certain. Your wishes, your desires, your reality – YOURS!

Hope your week is going well, take care of you.
With much affection,

It Isn’t Easy, But It Is Simple

image

LifeI refer to life here. Complicated complex life, except it really isn’t, or it doesn’t need to be. We make it so with our thoughts, actions and attitudes.

There are many homilies and quotes referencing this too. “Simple is as simple does” or the most well known “K.I.S.S.” but we don’t “keep it simple“. We run around complicating the crap out of everything.

So tomorrow or better yet today … right this minute … think of how you can uncomplicate your life, and a good place to begin is with your over-used, overworked emotions. They’d love a little relief from the stress of it all.

As it is now, your mind will transfer your emotional stress overload to various parts of your body, creating even more interesting and uncomfortable complications …

all of which are unnecessary. Simplify! Let go of that which is not really important. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results. I promise.

Have a wonderful week ahead and remember to take care of you.

With affection,
~ Penny
