Today I woke up feeling extremely happy and content. No my life isn’t perfect or free of issues, but I know there is more great than bad. And that’s what keeps me going; my work, my family, my friends, my husband. Be grateful. It’s a small act, but it has a massive payoff. Love yourself, love the hurdles, love the good, love it all. ❤️

I've gotten really good asking strangers to take my pictures.
I've gotten really good spending time alone,
I've gotten really good exploring nature with curiosity.
I've gotten really good appreciating the small things that life offers.
I've gotten really good playing and jumping on things, like kids do.
I've gotten really good being in silence.
I've gotten really good being enough.
May we all be really good at something.

This is the last week we’ll be posting on our time in Greece. Even though our amazing time in this beautiful part of the world has come to an end, we are content knowing that adventure and travel will always be part of our life. It is a part of who we are and a way to keep us growing in love, compassion, kindness, and appreciation of this beautiful world we live in. ❤️❤️❤️
Two years ago my path crossed for the first time with this amazingly talented beautifull lady, it was in a magical himalayan forest that our adventures began and took us over the continents, cultures, landscapes and reallities. Always learning 😊 Love you to the moon and back, May 💚 תודה על הכל

Fun facts about Crestone:
More than 15 religious centers
Most alien sitings in the USA
Circled almost entirely by mountain!
QUESTION: Would you rather live IN the mountains, or NEXT to the mountains so you can see them? Let me know 👇👇
DAY 9 // In the western world we often regard stories like Peter’s miraculous release from prison or Herod’s spectacular death as either fairy tales or products of a time when God worked supernaturally--something we assume He no longer does. The truth is that to truly believe God became a man named Jesus who walked among us, died, and then came back to life requires far more faith in the supernatural than believing God can heal someone who is sick or set someone free from jail. Let us pray bold prayers today for God to work a miracle. ---

... It’s hard to define.
They say a well integrated wine is harder to define than one that is not very well integrated. A non-integrated wine is like a five pointed star in your mouth, each point of “oak,” “tannin,” “acidity,” etc. standing out. But an integrated wine sits more like a sphere in your mouth; there’s no real starting point to pick out.
This is, to me, what Beauty is like. There’s no “starting point” as to what Beauty is. You know it’s there, as surely as you know it’s wine in your mouth. It’s presence is unmistakable. But what it’s comprised of… what makes Beauty “Beauty?”
And that’s the beauty of Beauty. It provides space for wonder. Mystery.
And it’s the glory of a king to seek out the mysteries of life.
Be royal today. Search for beauty.
