Strong Wind and Mindfulness and Thanksgiving

November 20 2016:

Thomas and I took a walk yesterday afternoon. Incredibly strong wind! It was so great and refreshing and we had a ball playing with the wind. xoxo

This mornings Walk With Me message: Mindfulness …. These tiny little rain drops caught my eye. Great message tree and water. Thank you ….

The practice of mindfulness can be trying … releasing thoughts of the past and future and focusing our entire being into whatever it is we are doing in that moment … it can seem like an internal tug of war. Yet, with practice it gets easier.

Beautiful, peaceful, and reflective walk yesterday. So wonderful that I got to see a blue billed duck. This is where I sat for a bit watching the ducks. xoxo

Watching and listening to the ducks yesterday. This was going on the entire time I sat there. Nature and animals are wonderful teachers. xoxo


You Are Perfect

“You are perfect.
Every shadow.
Every line.
Every bump.
Every curve.
You are perfectly divine.
My eyes could study you for an eternity
and still not grasp the depth of your beauty.
My heart need not study you at all.
For the heart knows the depths of your beauty.
Our beauty is one and the same.
We are perfect.” ~Camilla Downs 2016
