Gratitude

The mountains are calling and they’re yelling “Look at Me, Look at Me!!!” Life moves so fast, it feels like the year passes by with the blink of the eye. I may or may not come across a site like this ever again but over the years, I’ve learned to slow my thoughts, to truly experience these present moments in life and really appreciate what is in front of me. Constantly thinking of what needs to be done or worrying about something that may never happen only distracts you from experiencing these simple beautiful things in life.  I try to take random moments to close my eyes, take a deep breathe and tell myself “My life isn’t perfect, but I’m thankful for everything I have.”  It feels amazing, try it!
