True forgiveness is when you can say, thank you for that experience.

Hello followers,

Well, it is Sunday!

Ignoring the fact that Sundays are the days before most people head back to work and a sign of the end of the weekend.

Sundays have a lot going for them.

It could even be argued that it is the best day of the week!

Why may you ask?

Well for one reason, it is a great day to meet with friends or family at noon for brunch.

When are afternoon naps the most satisfying?

Of course, on Sundays.

It used to be back in Dan and my day when the newspaper was a leisure activity and not a chore or necessity.

Now it is looking on the computer or cell phone on social media for the news.

Love it when a friend shares political news.

Sundays are the day to scroll through them!

And when do you have the opportunity to stroll through stalls of fresh produce at a farmer's market with no rush?

Most likely on Sundays.

You see, Sundays are the perfect time to turn down the noise of everyday life and enjoy the moment you are in, while also preparing yourself mentally for the week ahead.

Maybe for you, it’s enjoying one of your favorite books on the back patio or swinging on a hammock.

Dan and I are discovering parks in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Sundays could be used for doing meal prep for the week.

So, you will feel less stressed about the workweek ahead of you.

Whatever your Sunday ritual, it’s always better when spent with friends and family.

Sundays are also days we prepare for Mondays.

There are four simple ways that you can develop an attitude of gratitude for the upcoming week.

First, keep a gratitude journal.

If Dan and I were to ask you right now what you are grateful for, would you be able to answer, without overthinking?

We often experience things that we should be grateful for, only to forget about them the next day.

This is why writing down what you are grateful for is a good idea.

By doing so you are rewriting your brain to focus on the good.

When it comes to practicing gratitude, consistency is key.

Get into a routine of writing in your journal daily, preferably in the morning.

This is a great way to start your day with a grateful heart.

Starting tomorrow Dan and I will be posting on how a gratitude journal can drastically change your life.

This new year Dan and I will be continuing the book, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.

This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.

Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!

Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.

By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.


Once you have an enhanced understanding of how each individual sense works, you may be wondering, do they combine with each other?

Human experience involves a synergy, or a working together of all the senses to give us the huge input of information that makes up our daily life.

We can go beyond just simply soaking up sensory impressions; we are capable of taking the input we are given and developing something out of it.

We can harness sensory capability to create something new.

We can use the senses to help us de-stress and relax and also be more in touch with our environment.

But we can also use our creativity to take us into new experiences that are both enriching and fulfilling.



Nurture a plant, and it will give you beautiful fruits, nurture your life, and it will give you a beautiful future.

Keep fueling the power in you before it stops burning.

There is absolutely nothing that can be taken for granted in this world.

Count and savor your blessings, they could be somebody else’s prayers.

To achieve more, do not leave things behind. Appreciate everything you have and carry it further with you.

Value all your blessings, otherwise you will have nothing left to carry forward in the future.

Simple things in life are the most difficult to last forever. Learn to appreciate them for them to stay.

As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.

The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.

January 29th

WAKING UP TO A BLANKET OF fresh snow is a remarkable and peaceful sight.

Everything feels cozier and the world seems hushed.

Snow is like a fresh slate, covering everything in white.

Even the soil underneath lies dormant, waiting for the warmth of spring.

It is okay to have periods of rest.

Everything needs time to recharge.

If you need stillness, allow yourself to be still.

Just as the earth goes through seasons, so do our bodies.

Be kind to yourself today!

The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.

If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.

Until Monday, the universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself;

everything that you want, you already are.
