Uncertainty Updated. 2017.57.

Uncertainty Updated. 2017.57.

This post was updated on Sat 10 June 2017.

Did this headline make you a bit wary?

I do not like uncertainty.

However, I am learning that there is no such thing as certainty. Except for death. Apparently!

It makes me nervous and curious and I know how I must remember  that somehow I need to accept uncertainty.

Why?

I would have to say because I have grown very weary of trying to control what I cannot control…but thought I was! Is that familiar?

My journey (yep, I like the word and it stays!) has taken me on a number of learning paths as I seek help to understand life as I don’t know it!

One such person is Buddhist nun, Pema Chodron, and her many books and teachings are in my library now.

I have this book beside my bed and read one chapter a night. Most nights anyway!

This excerpt is from chapter 14.

According to the Buddha, the lives of all beings are marked by three characteristics: impermanence, egolessness, and suffering or dissatisfaction. Recognising these qualities to be real and true in our own experience helps us to relax with things as they are.

The first mark is impermanence. That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and changing, is the first mark of existence. We don’t have to be mystics or physicists to know this. Yet at the level of personal experience, we resist this basic fact.

It means life isn’t always going to go our way. It means there’s loss as well as gain. And we don’t like that.

We know that all is impermanent; we know that everything wears out. Although we can buy this truth intellectually, emotionally we have a deep-rooted aversion to it.

We want permanence; we expect permanence. Our natural tendency is to seek security; we believe we can find it. We experience impermanence at the everyday level as frustration. We use our daily activity as a shield against the fundamental ambiguity of our situation. expending tremendous energy trying to ward off impermance and death.

We don’t like it that we age. We are afraid of wrinkles and sagging skin. We use health products as if we actually believe our skin, our hair, our eyes and teeth, might somehow miraculously escape the truth of impermance.

The Buddhist teachings aspire to set us free from this limited way of relating to impermanence. They encourage us to relax gradually and wholeheartedly into the ordinary and obvious truth of change.

Acknowledging this truth doesnt mean we are looking on the dark side. What is means is that begin to  understand that we’re not the only one who can’t keep it all together.

We no longer believed that there are people who have managed to avoid uncertainty.

Comfortable with Uncertainty. Pema Chodron. 2003. Shambhala Publications.

I am a life-long learner and I have been learning more lessons about life and me in the past few years than I ever felt possible. I have great respect for the words of Brene Brown and have signed up for this combo of courses on-line called Daring Greatly and Rising Strong. If you are interested in knowing more, here is the link.

Have you given much thought to what it is to be uncertain?

Do you struggle with the notion that we are not really in charge of many aspects of our lives as we might prefer to be?

I’d love to hear your comments.

Next week I am finally owning up to the vulnerability of telling my story. It won’t be confined to one post!

Denyse.

Less than one month after writing this post, I was diagnosed with cancer. More about that here. and here 

If ever there is/was a reason to feel even more uncertainty then this is now. I am doing my utmost to stay present and appreciate now but for someone like me, who thinks ahead, plans what she can and wants to know what’s coming, cancer has been sent to test me on many levels. This weekend, I know that within one month from now, my surgery will have happened. But it’s yet to come. I am grateful for support and care from many of course, but in the end there is one person who must do this and that is me.

Sharing especially today with Sammie who has been the most kind and understanding person as she has faced her cancer and dealt with it all incredibly well. I thank her for her presence in my life. Joining here for the Ultimate Rabbit Hole.

Oh and by the way, I am still reading the above book and am about to commence the second part of the course: Rising Strong.

Try A Little Kindness. 2017.56.

Try A Little Kindness. 2017.56.

I am updating this post for joining Leanne’s Linky here on Thursday 27 July 2017. I have been incredibly grateful for the many acts of kindness that have impacted my life since my cancer diagnosis and subsequent surgery. It makes me really pleased to be part of a world where kindness continues to exist. In hospital all of the staff, with one small exception did all they could within their huge workloads to be kind and in turn I made every attempt to not only show my appreciation in words but to do as much as I could (within the means of my physical restrictions) independently.

The decision to link this older post up was made when I saw my daily Buddha quote. I get these sent to me each morning.

Kindness should become the natural way of life, not the exception.” Buddha.

Denyse.

Original Post Starts Here: 

I listened to a lot of Glen Campbell as a young adult and my husband and I continue to enjoy the oldies but goodies by this man. It is sad that he is very unwell with Alzheimers disease now.

In the spirit of my word of the year

..and letting the whole world know we need more KINDNESS in our lives…right now…here it is. The lyrics and the gentle Glen himself singing it way back.

I will not apologise for the earworm because I think we need to sing it. All together now….

Try A Little Kindness

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he’s sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say, you’re going the wrong way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Don’t walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Special Times To Remember. #LifeThisWeek 16/52. 2017.55.

Special Times To Remember. #LifeThisWeek 16/52. 2017.55.

When I planned this prompt I was thinking about the special time (on this date!) I remembered when I heard that I was pregnant for the second time..after a long gap between children (over 7 years) after being told I would not able to have a second child. Then I re-thought my response and decided to add more. Here they are photos and the special times I remember behind each of them! From left to right and clockwise.

Set One.

  1. Here I am in my principal’s role snapped on school photo day circa 2000. I was very proud to be chosen to be a school principal in my own right after years of being both relieving and acting principal in a number of schools.
  2. On Queenscliff Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. May school holidays spent at my parents’ house with my husband and baby daughter. This is in 1972. I don’t think my daughter was keen on the water! Great times spent each time we came back to Sydney from our rural/outback teaching roles from 1971-1977.
  3. The face of a relieved and retired person who is learning to make her way through life without roles and responsibilities that she has lived with for over 40 years. Special memories made via selfies on my beach walks in 2016.
  4. Young parents! We were 21 when our daughter was born and both teaching in small schools out the back of Boggabri NSW. I was back at work by now (phew, I disliked being at home and isolated on a country property) and this young one is in a swing made by her Dad! We were back at school/work and she was well-cared for next door to my school by my boss’ wife, her godmother.

Set Two.

  1. I am around 17 here. This is me, first of the NSW HSC cohort in my senior uniform. It was brown (yuck) and consisted of a skirt, shirt and jacket making it almost ‘suit-like.’ I was not a nerd but a social being at school but finally did remember to study in Year 12 and get into teacher’s college. I loved being part of the first group in NSW to do the HSC and it is 50 years ago this year!!
  2. The lovely man I married all those years ago – 46 to be exact – with me last Christmas in this house we are renting. We are making special memories right now as for the first time in our lives it is ‘just us’ and no responsibilities for family and work, except for some voluntary work by my husband.
  3. Eleven years ago I fulfilled a dream held since teenage years and stood on the North Shore of Oahu looking for the waves that I had sung about in the school bus in the 1960s…”Ride the Wild Surf”…and the surf was flat. Disappointed but a wonderful experience to visit Hawaii..on my first and only (to date) trip out of Australia.
  4. Turning 65 meant this…a big grin and relief that my working life was done and I would be eligible for a part-pension. That meant fewer expenses for us as I had no superannuation so it was a good thing. It was also a sad occasion as it was the last birthday I got to celebrate with my whole family in Sydney. I remember it with mixed emotions as in under 2 months we would be gone from Sydney to live on the Central Coast.

I found this article on memories very interesting and share it from here.

Do you find you remember certain experiences and times very well indeed?

I do, often remembering the weather, smells, sounds as well as sights.

Our brains are amazing!

Easter. #LifeThisWeek 15/52. 2017.52.

Easter. #LifeThisWeek 15/52. 2017.52.

Easter has always meant this to me:

  • a 4 or 5 day break from school when it was not part of the NSW School Holidays
  • a time to re-group after a busy first term
  • traditions of meatless Good Friday and me making a ‘fish dish’ for my family who loved it
  • eating maybe one hot cross bun (toasted) with butter on Good Friday. Not a great fan of H.C.B.
  • deciding whether to give out chocolate Easter eggs to kids and grandkids and usually coming up with the answer ‘yes’
  • not over-doing the chocolate egg thing as kids/adults get soooo many that they’re often still hanging around till Christmas
  • Easter Hat Parades. At School. Organising them and/or ensuring hats were made for kids/grandkids.
  • traffic on the roads leading out of Sydney so avoiding driving on major roads for that very reason
  • pleasant weather – sunny and warm days
  • family get-together at some stage if people were still at home
  • a visit to the Royal Easter Show in Sydney

http://images.getconnected.dnsw.com.au/

Now that we are living away from family and they have their own traditions we do not catch up. We prefer not to drive on the dreaded M1 (motorway between us and Sydney) because of the traffic AND the more frequent accidents which cause delays and more.

So we will be having an Easter that is not really different to the way we live each day of the week and you know what…that is FINE by us!

A few times we held Easter Egg hunts at our place and the one we remember most was when eggs were hidden throughout our garden. All the grandkids from youngest to eldest had the most wonderful time finding them and checking back with their Papa to ensure they had collected the number allocated and then they got a bigger stash. It was to keep it fair as the eldest were in their late teens and the others were toddlers/pre-schoolers.

http://easterstockphotos.com/free_images/eggs/easter_egg_pile.jpg

One place I always visited alone or with kids/grandkids was the Royal Easter Show in Sydney. From the time I was a girl and my family would come up from Wollongong for the day, I loved it. It was the atmosphere, the fun, the colour and the spectacles in the ring with the animals and the parades. As a teen I went with my then ag student boyfriend and we had members’ tickets which was awesome. Over the years at the old Showground at Moore Park I’d drive in with our then kids early on the first Sunday of the show to get a good park. We would walk around for quite sometime and catch up with the animal exhibitions, the pavilions, the games and then sit ringside for events and the woodchopping.

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW moved the Show to Homebush and whilst it was not quite the same, they did benefit from the organisation of the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and transport was included in a Show Ticket.

I went each year taking the bus from near our Glenwood House. I sometimes took grandkids and other times went by myself. I loved checking out what interested me. The last time I visited the Royal Easter Show was in 2014 when I took Miss 4 and Master 6. We had a ball! Such great memories made.

So what does Easter mean for you?

Daylight Saving Is OVER. #LifeThisWeek 14/52. 2017.50.

Daylight Saving Is OVER. #LifeThisWeek 13/52. 2017.50.

In Australia the 6 month daylight saving period is over as of 2 April 2017.

Not all parts of Australia take part and not everyone is a fan of it. I used to find the four month period of it better way back. I guess a lot of how we feel about daylight saving is personal and circumstantial .

I did write about it 6 months ago here. 

Hot days which stretch longer than necessary I find personally challenging and then I also do not like the darker mornings as it comes to a close. Nevertheless I understand that its purpose is for energy saving and using what natural light there is available. I am old enough to remember when it started in the early 1970s and I also recall daylight saving starting earlier in 2000 when Sydney hosted the Olympics.

http://www.cclscorp.com/ESW/Images/Daylightshutterstock_RetroClipArt_64847860.jpg

I did some research too about the history of daylight saving in Australia and add it here for you!

How and when did Daylight Saving Time get started in Australia?

Daylight Saving Time (DST) had its beginning in Australia during World War I. The Commonwealth used its wartime powers to require all Australian states and territories to put into place DST. 1917 was officially the first year DST was used across the country. It was in force between 1 January and 25 March (late summer in Australia). It was discontinued after the war, but World War II saw its return for three consecutive summers.

It began with a late summer start on 1 January 1942 followed by a full summer (September – March) later that year. Tasmania may be our smallest state, but they had great influence on why we have DST in Australia today. The Tasmanian state government implemented Daylight Savings in the summer of 1967 to save power which saved water. A severe drought in the state made it imperative that DST be used to help the situation. As it turned out, they liked having DST in Tasmania so much so that they have continued it ever since. Because it was such a success, the Tasmanian state government pushed to get Daylight Saving Time used Australia-wide.

By 1971 legislation was passed by all states, except the Northern Territory and Western Australia, to run a trial period. Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia made it permanent in 1972. Currently Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia do not have Daylight Savings. Often confusing dates and changes although efforts have been made to unify DST dates across Australia, the Federal Government has kept it the responsibility of individual state and territory governments to decide when and if Daylight Savings will be implemented locally.

As a result, DST has varied at times depending on local issues. For example New South Wales extended DST in 1981-2 because of power shortages. During the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games special Daylight Savings Times were observed by some, but not all. This lack of uniformity is blamed for the serious problems in scheduling and reduced hours available to work with others across state lines. Daylight Saving Time also means Australia has 5 time zones when in effect. http://www.alldownunder.com/australian-dates/time-daylight-savings-2.htm

I posted a photo on Saturday as a reminder to my Instagram and Facebook followers that it was the night to remember to put the clocks back and saw that not everyone was happy for it to be over. So, are you a fan or not? How much does your life change when daylight saving begins or ends?

It’s back again on 1 October 2017 by the way!

Thanks for being part of Life This Week on Monday 3 April 2017.

Autumn. #LifeThisWeek 12/52. 2017.45.

Autumn. #LifeThisWeek 12/52. 2017.45.

This prompt was strictly from my calendar. In the northern hemisphere Autumn/Fall commences September 21.

In the southern hemisphere we call the season Autumn from March 1.

The reasons I like Autumn are:

  • cooler evenings
  • cooler days
  • sunshine that does not burn (as much)
  • plants changing – losing leaves or adding new flowers
  • sense of calming down after the extremes of weather in the previous season of summer
  • a gentler season as daylight saving finishes soon
  • time for more indoors leisure

However, Autumn just hasn’t played well to date in many parts of Australia and with record high temperatures, bush fires, drought, flooding, cyclones and more…there sure are no falling leaves (except green ones whipped off trees in the winds) YET.

My autumn photos from late last week:

An hour before this shot, I had been looking at almost completely blue sky!

The garden is doing well….but I fear my sweet peas might drown…I have snail bait everywhere because nothing eats my new plants!

Photo taken from inside the car. Normally tranquil lake affected by high tide, southerly wind and constant rain.

I remain someone who still tries to find autumn leaves where they are gathering and sometime soon I “hope” I will trek again to the more inland spots on the Central Coast to find them. I have wonderful memories of taking 2 grandchildren on walks around our old neighbourhood gathering autumn leaves for craft and having the fun of crunching them under their feet..and even lying in them. Not me, the kids!! A snippet from a favourite song I always taught little kids..with hands like leaves falling down…

Autumn leaves now are falling, red and yellow and brown

Autumn leaves now are falling see them tumbling down

So… Autumn leaves WILL be falling in some places I am sure…

but for now all I can offer is this lovely 1 minute of gentle autumnal leaves falling: Credit:

What is the weather like where you are now?

Is it autumnal or are you moving into spring?

My Favourite Colour. #LifeThisWeek 11/52. 2017.41.

My Favourite Colour. #LifeThisWeek 11/52. 2017.41.

It’s not a secret that I love colour. I tend to dress colourfully so browns and beiges and greys do not get much of  a look-in although black and navy were my ‘base’ colours when I was working.

I like colours that are bright in most cases and I also like colours that bring out the best in other colours.

Since getting into art a few years back I discovered yellow is a great friend for many colours.

Before I get to my favourite colour disclosure I admit I really have tried hard to embrace and love many colours and these include red, magenta, purple, green and at times, orange and yellow…but the final reveal is this:

BLUE is my HUE.

Here’s why. It is cooling. It is refreshing. It is relaxing. It is the colour of my favourite water course – the sea. It is the colour of the sky. It calms me. It has many shades. The favourites for me tend to be the greeny/blues. I love turquoise and aqua. I looked for examples around me and I did not have to look far! Here they are:

The Ocean.

Part of my mandala bed topper.

Just love this vase.

When you realise how much you love ONE colour.

Mandala – ode to BLUE

My birthday – from Colorstrology Book.

The Book itself. It’s fun & accurate for many I have found.

I guess now that I own up to BLUE being my favourite colour it probably always has been. I remember loving the colour turquoise when I saw it in a paint tin when I was a kid at school. I have worn blue for preference more than I realise. I was wearing a blue and white dress the night I met my now husband.

Whilst blue is my standout, I do wear others and enjoy having many colours around me! Here is a favourite mandala I made recently.

 

So, what is your favourite colour?

Is there more than one for you?

Denyse.

Must Watch TV. #LifeThisWeek10/52. 2017.37.

Must Watch TV. #LifeThisWeek 10/52. 2017.37.

I am not quite sure why I chose this as a prompt as I am not really an avid TV watcher. I cannot abide having the television on in the background (will mute it if it is up to me!) but I also probably could not live without telly for a few reasons. One would be to keep up with what others might be chatting about in real life and on-line. Another is that at times there are some programs I do like and would not want to miss!

Oh and a bit of trivia I was 6 when television began telecasting in Australia and I was 7 when Mum and Dad got telly for us. Before that, on a Tuesday afternoon, a lady in our street invited the neighbourhood kids to watch Lassie on Channel 2. My mum said I couldn’t go back to watch if I came home crying again. Ohh. Muuuum! So, here’s my must watch TV and why!

http://www.abc.net.au/news/image/

I love our national broadcaster for many reasons and no ads is but one. I like the content and the ‘for all the people’ charter. I also worked for them in personnel waaaay back in 1967-68 after the HSC until I finally got the reprieve from office life to join the classrooms of NSW schools.

  • Love(d) Play School when I was caring for the grandkids and also at school for Kindergarten kids in disadvantaged areas where a show like Play School helped so much with experiential learning.
  • Watch the documentaries such as Kitchen Cabinet with Annabel Crabb and Home Delivery with Julia Zemiro…and many more. I tend NOT to watch Four Corners or Q&A anymore due to the content & people.
  • News. Love the news channel and I also like ABC Breakfast on TV.

 

http://blog.studiocommercial.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Selling-Houses-Australia-v1.jpg

  • We have had the very expensive (but we still choose to have it) Foxtel since it arrived in Australia as the wonder called Subscription TV.
  • My must watch programs are generally on Lifestyle and Selling Houses Australia is the head of that list. I also love Grand Designs Australia and Location Location Location Australia. Note: Australian content is what I love most.
  • I got to meet Shaynna Blaze and Andrew Winter at a Lifestyle channel expo in 2014 and they were both gracious and lovely.

  • We did not even give this show a thought when it appeared on TV screens in Australia. Not one.
  • Then in 2015 I discovered it via Netflix and became…HOOKED! But Netflix stopped it so I had to BUY all of the DVDS of course!
  • Now we own all of the DVDs from Downton Abbey…here’s my little secret…I love it so much, my hub and I watch around a 20 minute segment every night.
  • Yep, it’s the one time we actually watch TV together which is because we have such markedly different interests but this one is like ‘comfort tv’ for us.
  • We are on our 4th time round!!!!!

There you have it! My must watch TV.

What about you? Are you a fan of TV?

Did you ever “not” have TV?
