I was just walking down the path to open the gate this morning and was noticing how truly beautiful everything is here. The singing of the birds, the way the light shines through the trees and hits the leaves and flowers, and just how peaceful it all is. I love looking at the bees scurrying about and the sounds of the roosters and goats. I’m so happy to be alive! I was just thinking though, I’m really getting a different grasp on focusing on the positive. There is both good and bad happening all the time in life. Traveling with someone and being around them 24/7 can be stressful and unless you are just really great travel companions, you usually get into little arguments. I have been living by the quote “Don’t let the actions of others disturb your inner peace” and it’s working really well for me. I was just realizing how if I focused all my time on how frustrating arguing with someone I’m traveling with, I wouldn’t have noticed all of those beautiful things and felt so incredibly happy on that short walk. I am so grateful for the person I have become and for the happiness that floods my heart daily!
