Finding Gratitude Through Mindfulness


What are you thankful for today?

Day to day we wake up, go about our day, return to rest, to it over again the next day. Some days we may focus on what we don’t have, which can be very draining, disappointing, and for some, overly dramatic.

Instead of letting the lack of something you want in physical form, a relationship or monetarily, find a favorite or new book, cook your favorite dish, cook a new dish, meditating also helps, get out to hike, or make art.

Find something that you enjoy to transform negative energy. As you are doing something positive, your perspective will adjust to be motivated and thankful.

Experiencing Life Through Exploration

Lake Chabot is the most beautiful lake in all of the Bay Area.

I would hike it’s trails alone, with friends who wanted to keep in shape, and sometimes with friends just to enjoy the scenery.

One thing about nature that reminds you that humans are connected to the earth is how fresh and clean the air is!

It’s trail offers 20 miles of hiking trails, which then connects to 70 miles leading through Oakland, San Leandro, Castro Valley, Lafayette and further…

Regular hiking trips of California trails turned into air miles ✈ from flying high in 2018. I have never flown as much as I did this year. πŸƒ

Looking out the window each time while in mid-air I saw how much of this world there is to see. And, just like a leaf blown in the wind… I can’t wait to see where life takes me.
