I try to do this each year


I try to do this each year. I try to do it every day. Here are 45 things I am grateful for (it’s an incomplete, ever-changing list). In no particular order:
1. mountains, rivers, beaches, fields – nature
2. students
3. a job that facilitates travel and exploration
4. art
5. artists
6. klaus (and animals in general)
7. my brother and sisters
8. fresh (non gmo) vegetables (and fruits)
9. yoga
10. a community of more incredible people and friends than I can quantify
11. feminism
12. the opportunity to teach what I love
13. living in Los Angeles
14. my quirky, weird, wonderful family members (including those who are ‘family friends’ – but really are family)
15. my father’s incredible cooking, his amazing shirts, his crass sense of humor, and his annual birthday songs over the phone
16. having a garden to sit in and look at
17. the Situation Room – and all who come and do things there!
18. activists (I saw a video of a young angela davis yesterday – and cried)
19. the ability to cook – and eat – delicious things
20. friends who are willing to engage in difficult and provocative conversation
21. getting to work with really great colleagues
22. rainbows
23. moonlight
24. my friends’ kids – who radiate the most remarkable energy, and inspire me every time I hang out with them
25. artist who are parents/parents who are artists
26. all the folks who contribute to and support gallery tally
27. road trips
28. a comfy, clean, safe bed
29. a body that still can take me on amazing adventures
30. a mind that is excited about learning new things every day
31. humor – and all those who are so masterful at administering it
32. night hikes
33. (being able to) going on an adventure with no plans whatsoever – and letting the world, and circumstance dictate the outcome
34. books
35. shooting stars
36. mental and physical clarity (when I can find it!)
37. playing piano
38. good smells
39. the internet
40. curiosity
41. my eyesight
42. coffee
43. good (hiking) shoes
44. the fact that I made it to 45 (years old)
45. yesterday, today, and tomorrow
However, if you intend to discover unique beauty of Asia this summer, Vietnam tour packages will be a perfect choice for you.

Attitude of gratitude is what I have to practice on a constant basis or else I too feel the space for freedom of thought, movement and ideas closing in – gratitude is the key that opens the door to my liberation!
