I strive everyday to take care of my body by exercising, drinking water, eating protein, fat, fruit and lots of veggies, moderation with things like caffeine, sugar, processed food and alcohol, finding time to be outside, and connecting with friends or family
For me, health and happiness. For the world, peace and love
An opportunity to be strong and open to new opportunities.
By being present and enjoying the moment rather than setting my sights and intentions on the future.
The Italian Christmas Eve tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Although it takes over a week to prepare all the fish and food it is a wonderful evening with family and friends.
To be together again with family and friends. To share hugs, meals, laughter and tears.
Breathe and take a moment before responding to the situation. Listen more, judge less.
The smiles and happiness that I see on the faces of those I have shopped for, baked for or made a meal for.
Having the time to be in deep thought, without the interruptions of daily life.
By being kind, there is so much uncertainty right now and thinking of what others might be going through and offering help, whether it be getting food to them, running errands or just taking the time to call and check in to see how they are doing
For every angry person there are several others willing, able and wanting to lend a hand. I often wonder why is it that the complainers seem to get all the attention while the helpers usually go unnoticed? I am focusing on the helpers and trying my best to replicate that goodness.
Love, food, water, movement, God, nature
By paying attention to all the good that is happening rather than focusing on all the unfortunate. Since to day is Earth Day by getting outside and taking in the beauty of this wonderful planet!
The beginning of a new day, sunshine on the dewy grass.
How there can be so much good in people and at the same time so much anger and hurt.
Recently, Every Day! I find that beginning my day with my gratitude practice puts everything in perspective and helps see what appears to be a negative in a positive light.
Early morning before everyone is awake. Everything seems so bright and peaceful.
Pretty much on the daily. I find that the expectations I have set in my mind rarely happen and if they do they don’t always end the way I anticipate. I have learned over time to let go, a little, and try to embrace the direction that occurs.
By remembering to breathe and be grateful in this time of uncertainty.
Since we are social distancing I will face time, call or text my friends to check on them.
