I just randomly discovered this fantastic looking book called "Mary Anning's Curiosity" while browsing Amazon today. The illustrations by @melissa.castrillon are what sold me on it! ...well, I say "sold", but I really shouldn't be spending more money right now. Curse my wallet! Maybe after Christmas... 💸📚 #maryanning#maryanningrocks#shesellsseashells

The happiness shelling brings me is second to none 🐚💕 It’s one of the things I miss most from living on the islands 🌴 The hunt for these in the water with my #og @clairejumanji were some of my favorite days! It’s my therapy 😊 What brings you that serenity?
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
A while ago I heard about mindfulness, in the dictionary mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
I slip in and out of mindfulness on a daily basis, and by no means am I someone that would be described as ‘calm’ or ‘zen’. But for the rest of the year I am challenging myself; to not be so quick to anger, to make sure I evaluate situations before I react, to make sure I am completely present in every moment. My older brother said to me once “be an Indian, not a chief” and he wasn’t saying don’t be a leader or don’t be my own person but he was saying realize that I don’t always have to control everything and everyone around me. #shesellsseashells#mushroomreefsanctuary#mindfulness#zengarden#naturephotography
