French : Thanks Giving
A celebration of being thankful for what one has and the bounty and blessings of the previous years/s.
Although my family are in New Zealand for this day of celebration and I am unable to spend it with them I am lucky enough to have made a beautiful Canadian family along my travels made of amazing friends and good banter that I get to spend thanks giving 2016 with.
Sometimes it's easier in life to focus on what we don't have rather than what we do have. It's important in life to take time out and remember all the things to be thankful for that many of us take for granted.
So since today is a day off appreciation and thanks this list is dedicated to things I find myself thankful for:
🔸 My parents for teaching me how to be me and allowing me to open my eyes to the world
🔸 Good health and wellbeing
🔸Money in the bank, although it isn't much I have worked for it, it's mine and it's enough for now.
🔸good friendships, life lesson quality over quantity
🔸freedom in all aspects and ways
🔸weekends , always something magical awaits
🔸pets and unconditional love
🔸learning from mistakes , makes us stronger and who we are and proof that second chances do exist
🔸opportunity to get education
🔸home sweet home
🔸being able to breath fresh air
🔸laughter and smiles
🔸sunshine, it's can brighten up any day or mood
🔸time , the time we have been given to live
🔸the ability to love and care
🔸kindness of strangers
🔸rainbows and natures beauty
🔸tears for feelings and emotions
🔸waking up today
🔸mountains for their beauty , strength and my love for them.
🔸sunsets to enjoy the simple everyday things
🔸my mind filled of life memories and knowledge
🔸moon and stars to encourage us to dream
🔸hearing the beautiful sounds of living
🔸oceans almost to mystical to be real
🔸music, brings emotion
🔸challenges , make us who we are
🔸hiking trails , to enjoy and explore this beautiful planet
🔸travel , being able to explore this beautiful universe and meet many beautiful souls
🔸my family, although a bit dysfunctional without them I would be a nobody. They support all my decisions and motivate me to be the very best I can be. When nobody else is there I can always fall back on them. They taught me everything I know and keep me focused. My happiness is the most important thing to them and I simply would not be here without them. There different and there mine and I love them
Happy thanks giving
Just a small quote I stumbled across today that touched me a wee bit
"My past is nothing more than the trail I have left behind , what drives my life today is the energy I have generated in my present moments "
What a wonderful world we live in. Feel free and inclined to explore life to the fullest extent and taste new experiences will hold true to you and the deepest parts of themselves, instead of being influenced by what masses around us really are doing. Travel, explore, wonder and think freely. Have courage to hear and speak your own voice and follow your own Integrity. Live according to your own wishes, beliefs and be unconstrained by society. Never allow waiting to become a habit and never be afraid to be individual.
10 things you need to give up to be happy
。 limiting beliefs
。 Dwelling on the past
。Worrying about the future
。Negative self talk
。The need to impress others
。The need to always be right
。Resistance to change
。 The need for others approval
Mindfulness is the gentle effort to be continuously present with experience.
But let's not confuse mindfulness with awareness
The mind wanders through all kinds of thoughts and paths. Where the past no longer exists and The future is just a fantasy until it happens . Be present and be mindful
So pay attention on purpose to being mindful and let your thoughts wonder and the sensations from our sensors grow . And embrace it.
We are a generation that are dimly aware of our own thoughts and pay them little attention .
Notice what is going on now! Take time to stop, look & explore in depth and Be present .
Happy Autumn 🍂🍂
"Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better "
Nature is such a magical thing and something that goes beyond words. The air, the mountains, the trees, sea, water , people... Are all things that keep us alive. Nature it's self is alive and breathing and so majestic when you take the time to stop and appreciate it.
We are apart of a generation that has lost interest in what is real and much more interesting to a world that is now growing and developing around the more unnatural technology. Mother Nature is beautiful and instead of cherishing the beautiful sights we see every day like looking up into sparkly space many will stare into cyberspace. ( which sucks compared to the night sky!!)
We need to be present and grateful beyond. Learn to love being in the presents of nature!and learn to be present! "Learn to love and appreciate nature, it has always been around and creates its own sense of beauty." Appreciating nature is apart of humanity.
Future generations may not have the luxury to enjoy the things we have in this beautiful world and the world is evolving into a ball of technology and little care is given to nature. "The happiest man is he who learns from nature, the lesson of worship."
This beautiful thing we have is a treasure and we need to admire it's beauty more, as it has so much to offer us. When was the last time you stopped and took in what was surrounding you? Nature is miraculous and brings a lot of beauty to our lives. Make sure you take the time to see and experience the things around you with an open mind and feel natures energy! Draw your knowledge from the natural world.
find a love for adventuring and taking in the magic around.
Be great full , be thankful
" With a smile on my Face "
Still loving and living by this quote. It's just a small remembrance everyday to wear a smile and be positive and do everything I do with a smile. Motivation to enjoy life and have fun. Even when life is challenging wear that smile! Even when times are tough bring some positivity with a smile and always believe in your self. Happiness is a choice not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you chose to be happy! Your happiness will come from within you.

Drift.... A spontaneous journey where the traveller leaves their life behind for a time to let the spirit of the land scape and architecture attract and move them.
Some individuals are born with the wanderlust fever of a strong desire to travel, wander and explore the world. Some can say it's genetic. I believe I get the racing travelling heart of anxiety and anticipation tangled together from my parents who also had the desire to travel as they grew up and it's permanent. But now it's my turn.
I can't manage to shake that urge for newness, desire , inspiration and thrive for adventure. Now I have a small taste I want more! I want it all! The world has so much diversity to offer and so much I am yet to explore and open myself up to.
Push yourself deeper into the world... To explore! Open your eyes wide and and let the world in and embrace it. Let the universe educate you to the fullest extent. Take advantage of what's around you. Allow your self to see things differently. Learn.See. Feel. It's a fresh scene!
Spread amongst the universe your desire to travel and that your commuted to living and enjoy the life you live. Or even inspire!
It's not the worlds obligation to pay for your dreams and make them happen, it's yours. What's stopping you? You shouldn't let anything get In the way. This is your life. Make it happen. Where there's a will there's a way! (Cheesy I know, but true!)
One day the realisation will hit you that every one around you is living their own vivid complex life, wandering along, but every ones journey is different so make the most of yours and don't live someone else's. Make your own choices. Be individual.
I love that feeling that traveling and exploring fills your body with. It's indescribable for me but it's a good thing and I can't stop wanting more. It's kinda like I drug. But a good one (except on the bank account.) I enjoy the small things when I'm out exploring, the different diversity a of life and also the fact that you can make up words and make them flow naturally. It also makes me want to meet people and here their stories and adventures that can inspire me.
For me I like to remember this: announce your self and be you, a true you , and don't stop being you have an impact on some one somewhere in the world that plant home! Even if it's just a smile.
Safe travels everyone ✈️🙏🏽🌍✨
Since traveling I have really been able to learn a lot about myself! No this is not turning into some silly soul searching sob story. What I really mean is that I have grown into me and become well ..me... I'm an individual! I can be individual! Travel has taught me to "do your own thing, follow your own path . " YESS your friends and family will always be there for you but to be a true you it's become important for me to take time and stand back and wake up to my own existence and be present. To enjoy the things I want to enjoy and do the things that pop to mind. Eliminate barriers and just live without fear or hesitation. Be you and not care what any one else thinks. "Don't fear that your not original, be authentic. Do what you do because you want to." Be individual and learn about yourself. Use others for inspiration to be open to new things. So what if you repeat the same theme as someone else, it hasn't been done by you. Do it with passion and make it yours! And don't be scared to do things on your own. Take the time to sit in a park on a sunny day and open your mind to life and being present.
You must be willing to take risks if you want to live
