Life off the road 2

Life Off The Road 2                  Saturday 4th July 2014 – Saturday 11th July 2014

Aquarobics at Fremantle pool at 7.10 will have to walk down as the car still not going.

 Went to Tony Backhouse Gospel singing workshop Tony is very talented and can get anyone  to sing out in a relaxed and joyful way. He quoted St Augustine that to sing is to pray twice. Such beautiful harmonies really heavenly music.

Back In Hospital

Saturday night excruciating pain ; got out of bed with great difficulty; opened front door and went on the toilet with a phone , rang Kerensa and she rang Ambulance for me.  Taken off the toilet and into Freo Hospital. Was then transferred to SJOG Murdock Hospital where I was operated on again for observation and repair. I had developed a hematoma and was bleeding.

Got out on the Wednesday 9th July still a little tender so I will take things quietly; and let myself heal properly.

                                                    RECEIVING

Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it  Rabindranath Tagore

Receive from others with an open heart. Other people’s generosity is a mark of their affection. Be gracious when receiving these gifts.

             Pay attention to kind words spoken to you

                                                              Appreciate the value in everything you receive

                     Sit and enjoy the gift of sunshine

                                                                  THANKING

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is Thank You , it will be enough

                      Acknowledge  help from others with Gratitude

                                                                  Give heartfelt thanks through action and words

 Be thankful for the little things you may take for granted

                                                         OPTIMISM

 I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

EB White                                  

Choose to be optimistic and make positivity your reality. Look on the bright side of life and you will begin to see the inherent goodness in nature and others around you. The future is yours to transform-let go of past anxieties and worries, and live for the moment.

        Choose to spend time with optimistic people

                                                    List the positives of an event you are feeling pessimistic about

                                                Revel in the brightness and vitality of nature

                                                     POSITIVITY

Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going  to determine how you’re going to live your life

                                                              Joel Osteen

Where you put your focus in life is where  the energy will flow.  Choosing to have a positive outlook will contribute to the enrichment of the world and the lives of the inhabitants.

    Find the silver lining in every cloud

                                         Make time to laugh with others

                                                              Let animals at play lift your spirits

                                                     ABUNDANCE

Abundance is not something we acquire It is something we tune into.

                                                              Wayne Dyer   

The planet is overflowing with an abundance of beauty and natural gifts. There is plenty for all creatures –human and animal- if we learn to gift and receive with balance and appreciation.

Show gratitude  for all that you have has been given and share it with others.

                      Appreciate all you have the large and the small things

Sit in a garden or field and surround yourself with flowers and trees

                                                 MINDFUL

                                   Instruction for living a life.

                                   Pay attention.

                                   Be astonished.

                                 Tell about it

                                                          Mary Oliver

Take time to stop, pay attention and be grateful. Listen to your intuition and don’t let life pass you by.

       Eat with attentiveness – savour each mouthful

When out in nature, pay full attention to your surroundings with every sense engaged.

Spend a day pampering yourself- you deserve it

                                                    OPEN HEARTEDNESS

The way is not in the sky, the way is in the heart.

                                                     THE BUDDHA

Open heartedness and vulnerability go hand in hand. The heart should be open to all life experiences –both good and bad. What is more important is the attitude with which we approach all encounters and then reflect on them. Let go all fear and keep the heart open for the flow of gratitude.

                                                      Make time for heartfelt conversation                                                                                                             Comfort a friend in need – listen without judgement

                                       Volunteer at an animal shelter

                                                 HAPPINESS

Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.

                                                              DALE CARNEGIE 

The tiniest seed of positivity is enough to bring intense joy to your life . Let down your barriers and your positive  feelings will grow day by day.             Don’t wait –  be happy today while life is happening around you.                        Be grateful for the freedom and power you have to enrich your world.

Sit and refect on a time when you were happy—bring that feeling into the present moment

                                Send a positive message to someone close to you

Do something selfless that brings joy to another creature—human or animal

                                                  HUMILITY

True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.                                        C. S. LEWIS

 We as individuals each contribute to humanity in our own way, be it big or small. We are all important unique beings who cannot be compared.

Accept friendly advice with grace and consideration            

 Be open to someone whom you may have misjudged in the past.                                                                                             Learn a new skill — allow yourself to enjoy being taught by someone                   else

                                                 CONNECTION

In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.

                                                               Make a connection with nature today                Join a community group                                                                                                                                                                                                      Connect with your inner self through meditation     

This has been my self indulgence so that I do not have to carry the book although it is just a smallbook it has lovely pictures you can buy the book from Australian Geographic it is written by Steve Parish and Kate Prentice. IT does fit in with my life philosopy of “Love is Letting Go Of Fear” Thanks to Kath Jordon for a delicious spicy soup left on the doorstep while I was taken back into hospital. Also Heather Ruggeri and Colleen McKennie for soup also delicious and shopping and visits. Thanks To Andrew and Kerensa for help and shopping and there visits.                  Mike Pauly
