Dalhi Lhama talks about making choices that either move us towards happiness or move us away from happiness. Despite a heavy cold I was mor towards happiness. Best wishes to all Pandas today

Well done, you! Trying to do the same.

Thanks for sharing

Thank you Pandas. Makes good sense that we can choose happiness when we take time to stop and think about our thoughts and actions.

Can this be my Panda mantra? 'I am someone who can stand in pain. I am someone who can forgive. I am someone who can ask resentment to leave......and so it leaves me!'

Blessed to be in beautiful Dorset countryside with the sunshine. Next door the army are firing on their test range. I think of all those in real war zones and send them my love and wishes for peace.

I've just moved to Dorset, it's lovely isn't it?

Not a bad day. Probably a good day. Just feels bit unreal and a waste of precious time. Be well all pandas.

Hello pandas. I trust you are all well and in a good place. If you are not where you want to be then I hope something shifts for you soon. Share with fellow pandas, together we are strong.

Thank you Noel. I wish you the same.

Been away from MP for a while. Some good things have happened in the last 5 weeks. But at the moment my focus is on the negative. Want to shift it but don't want to shift it either. Be well Pandas.

Welcome back, Noel - I know that conundrum

25 May 2018

Good to see you back Noel! I hope better days are coming:)

25 May 2018

Sometimes it's ok to let the negatives come and take them in, especially since you know of and plan to see the positives too.

26 May 2018

Thank you Pandas

Been a while since I have posted. To all pandas new and old may you be blessed with love and happiness (even just a little bit). Maybe a miracle may happen for you today ♥️🎇😎

OK day I guess. Feel stressed and irratable and not able to take my own advice to relax. May all Pandas be happy and at peace.

Generally OK but have been irritated and agitated with stuff that has made me more of a 'human doing' than a 'human being'. May all Pandas be well and happy tonight

Read a lovely email today about how love comes from inside us We generate it & use it our relationships If we try to pick up love from other people we will be upset if they cant give us what we want

So true

25 Jan 2018

That's exactly what I needed to hear right now. Thank you for sharing, Noel!

25 Jan 2018

You are welcome Manda

25 Jan 2018

Sounds a good read. Makes so much sense

25 Jan 2018

Thanks Jill yes. Why do we rely so heavily on others ans expect them to heal our fear and anxiety. With those thoughts we set us and them up to fail

26 Jan 2018

I wonder if it is because through anxieties we are worried we don't come up to where we want to be and maybe others love helps us feel some with. But finding our own love and using it can only be more attractive to others.

My first blog of 2018. I hope some pandas may find it useful. https://pilgrimnoel.wordpress.com/2018/01/14/grace-time/

I've also started using Wordpress, but more as a personal (depression) diary. Or a longer version of my entries here. Will check your blog out!

14 Jan 2018

i appreciated the post on grace. I call it equanimity. somewhat similar, but grace has an element of sweetness .

21 Jan 2018

Thanks Love I thought so too

Performed my first funeral service in 18 months. Very pleased and family very happy. Very heart open work and I have missed it. I aim to do more. May all Pandas feel as rewarded as I do ❣

Mood Panda looks different or is it me? Continue to improve in healing from my back and cold. Starting to think what 2018 may look like. I would like to do a half marathon. May all Pandas be well 🌞

Cold is better and today is day 8 so hopefully can come out of quarantine and return home to help my partner care for her mum Just about everyone has a cold so it is hard to avoid Be well today Pandas

Rough 24 hours with sweats congestions & and all a cold brings. Feel slightly better this a Am. Probably 2 -3 days more quarantine. Hate colds & miss the sun. Hope all pandas feel better than me ❤

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

03 Jan 2018

Ugh. Being sick sucks. The only good thing about it is how much you appreciate feeling well again after! Keep that in mind...you'll get through it!

03 Jan 2018

Feel better soon!

03 Jan 2018

Thanks Pandas. It is being unable to support my partner that is the worst bit. If her mum catched my cold then the virus could kill her. Big responsibility

03 Jan 2018

That's serious. While in quarantine, hope you rest.

04 Jan 2018

Thanks Love yes it has real consequences. My eldest son took me to the pictures yesterday which was good therapy
