Today is the last day of the A to Z challenge. It was quite hard at the end because I had less time to blog. My first day in Haiti went well I slept most of the day then I went around the house and took pictures.
I felt a feeling of peace surround me. I was home, sitting on the porch, the wind on my skin, watching Jack running around the yard, listening to the sound of birds. I had a book with me but I was enjoying the moment too much to pick it up. I sat there, happy and grateful for the wonders of nature.
Meditation is one of the best medication for anxiety and Mindfulness works greatly for depression. I started practicing mindfulness around october and it really helped me find my inner peace. I meditate mostly when I can’t sleep but you don’t have to meditate to practice mindfulness. It’s about staying in the present and noticing what’s going on around you. When you make silence your friend, you are able to see clearly, to notice the beauty of your surroundings, to stay positive, to be at peace.
“Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.”
― Charlotte Brontë
Quote of the night
“Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they lead to actions.
Watch your actions, they create habits.
Watch your habits, they build your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”
When you go into the space of nothingness,
everything becomes known.
“It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power!”
― Robert T. Kiosaki
