“I’ve reduced a lot of the stress in my life.  I’ve gotten rid of a lot of things.  The light was turned on and a lot of the cockroaches started spinning.  I swept them out the door.  And sometimes you just have to throw things out because they carry a certain energy.”  Wesley Snipes

It’s a very cold, crisp day today, and perfect for an invigorating walk in the sunshine.  My Great Nephew came along with me to the playground at the park behind where we live.  I don’t know how he managed to talk me in to spinning on this silly contraption!  It was fun though, and he laughed up a storm when I got off and just about fell over from dizzyness.  A very enjoyable afternoon!

I like the quote for today – because I’ve been there, done that.  Most of those cockroaches were monsters I created in my own brain.  There’s still a few left in there – squiggling about every now and then . . . but it’s so much easier to squish them now than it was 10 or 15 years ago!  

Practice makes perfect . . .

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”  Audrey Hepburn

We hiked a few more beaches today finding a few more spots that we’d never been to before.  Some of the trails are quite steep and slippery as we’ve had more rain the last few days.  We did a little  geo-caching along the way, dropping a couple of trackables that my son sent over with me.  Geo-caching is how we’ve discovered quite a few out-of the way places on the Island that are not traveled by the average tourist.  

It’s a fun activity that can be done all over the world.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a wonderful activity for kids as well.  They love the excitement of “the hunt” and it gets them outside in the fresh air, getting exercise and quality time with Mom and Dad.  It’s a GREAT family activity any time of the year.  

These days all you really need is a cel phone with GPS tracking on it – or for the more serious Geo-Cache’r purchase an actual GPS unit.  We haven’t done that yet – but after this trip when we’ve had a few times without 3G access . . . I’m seriously considering purchasing one.  

Check out Geo-Caching.com for information on cache’s all over the world.  You’ll find many in your area!

“Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”  Mahatma Gandhi

The quote that I have chosen for today really resonates.  I completely, totally and one hundred percent agree that happiness is a by-product of your daily choices and actions.  In fact, I had to include a second quote to underscore the first quote . . . I’m a very happy person these days.  So much of my life is in harmony with who I am deep inside.  It has not always been so.  I’ve been on a journey to harmony in my life, and have seen healing and happiness in the lives of those around me as a result.  There was a time when I had division, discord, depression, unhappiness ruling my experience of life.  I am so fortunate to be in a place now where I am happy, healthy, and able to share that with the people I love.  

This photo was taken with my iPad as hubby, baby girl and I were out for a walk on a beautiful sunny Bay Area day.  I took it with an App called HDR Pro that creates the HDR right when you are taking the shot.  Thus it is a little fuzzy.  That’s Ella’s curly mop on the lower right.  

The little one was so happy to be out in the fresh air, walking, picking up sticks and playing with acorns that have fallen by buckets off the trees.  It’s one of those afternoons where everything is right with the world.  The birds are singing, the air is clean and crisp . . . and our only concern is keeping her from falling in the creek!  

Happiness.
