Replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity; languages and cultures; my breakfast bowls; oceans and mountains; a humbling surf session followed by a magical sunset; a glass of Crianza accompanied by a good book; KIDS, they rock my world; first tracks on a powder day; my family and friends; camping with a view; a warm chocolate chip cookie, a killer climb leading to an epic singing decent (yep, I sing if it’s that good); the rooting and peace gained from the practice of yoga; doing it versus wishing I was doing it.
