  • At this time of year are you giving goodwill and love to those that need it most. Perhaps those that don't have a voice. Give freely and volunteer to a worthy cause. It will enrich your life hugely and those whose life you touch! #goodwill #charity

  • COMFORT FOOD . When you think of comfort food, what comes to mind first? . If you're anything like me, it's a warm bowl of something. It might be homemade mac and cheese or a really yummy creamy soup or something else. . Here's the thing, when I think of comfort food, it's always something that's been cooked with love and care. . In TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) our digestive system thrives on cooked, warm (thermally warm + temperature warm) foods. . Why? . Because it's easier for our bodies to digest the food we're consuming, especially in the late fall, winter and very early spring. . While some argue that nutrients are lost in the cooking process (and this is true), we don't actually absorb 100% of the nutrients from raw food we consume either. . Consider this, if you have a weaker digestive system, eating raw food might mean that you absorb about 50% (or less!) of what you consume. . If you were to cook the food first, you will lose some of the nutrients to the cooking process, BUT you will absorb far more of the remaining nutrients because you've made it easier on your body to do its work. . I like to think of cooking as the first stage of digesting. . The second stage is getting our saliva flowing! . Why is this important? . A digestive enzyme called amylase is secreted in our saliva. This is the enzyme that helps us digest carbohydrates (including carbohydrates from plant sources). Carbohydrates are also a very important source of energy. . Ever notice how much saliva is flowing when you smell your favourite meal cooking? Ever notice how little is flowing when you're eating something that you don't particularly like? . While it's important to fuel our bodies well, it's equally important to love what we are eating! . What kind of comfort food will you have today? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts and ah-ha's in the comments below! . Photo credit: Buenosia Carol

  • Day 27b - As I was walking through Orges, this beautiful person, Claire, noticed that I was a pilgrim and stopped to talk to me. *all conversations took place using a small amount of English words, less French words, some excellent pantomiming by Severin, but mostly Google translate on smartphone* She asked about my journey and if I would like to stay in the cottage of her backyard. It’s 10am, I’m not thinking about stopping. But after we talked more it just seemed like a good encounter and I might as well trust and live in the spirit of travel where no plan ever happens. When we got to her home she told me it was her fathers birthday, Max, along with a couple of friends, Emilie’s and Severin’s birthday as well and we would all be having lunch together. I have never felt so greeted and welcomed. Max and his wife, Gigi, were very hospitable. Lunch was amazing. A huge spread of appetizers, then a main course that included wild boar hunted by Max. After mains, Clair’s son, Baptiste, told me, “now we eat the cheese.” And a huge plater of local cheeses were brought to the table. After the cheese, fresh plates were brought out, I asked Baptiste, “more food?” He said not if I didn’t want to eat dessert. I told him I thought the cheese was the dessert. “No,” he answered, “cheese is it’s own course here.” We sat around that table for hours talking and sharing. Severin was very happy to practice his English, and a great character as was. After lunch we went for a walk around the village, then later that night all had dinner together, also with a cheese course. I felt so blessed to spend the day with Claire and her family. Wonderful people. Not enough can be said to describe how enjoyable my time with them was and how grateful I am for this beautiful experience. Everyone even signed my pilgrim passport. . . . #viafrancigena #wander #traveling #traveler #longwalk #longwalks #letsgoforawalk #adventure #wanderlust #lovethislife #livethislife #lovethislifestyle #travellife #travelholic #pilgrim #pilgrimage #changeyourperspective #adventuretime #france #goodpeople #changedpriorities

  • Make Today AMAZING! . What are the top three things you want to accomplish today? . Prioritize them! Take a moment and think about one thing that needs to happen today. It doesn't have to be a big thing. It could be super simple, but it does need to happen. . Really want to make sure this happens? Schedule it! . Yes, actually block out time to do it today. . I always have a 'needs to get done today' or 'must get done today' list. Call it what you like, but whatever you call it, the things on the list actually need to happen. . Do I always do them? . No. . Why? . Because sometimes I don't schedule them. It's that simple. . If I don't mental and physically make time to do something, the chances of it actually happening are slim to none. . If I do make mental and physical time to do something, the chances of it happening increase exponentially. . Does this mean that if I schedule it, it always happens? Nope. Sometimes life gets in the way. If that happens, I re-schedule it later. . To me, making time to schedule my top 3 is another layer of committing to myself that the things I determine are important to complete that day actually get done. . How will you make today amazing? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ah-ha's in the comments below! Lets make today AMAZING! . Photo credit: Gwen Weustink

  • JUST ME . If these were my hands, they might say something like this: . Daughter, sister, wife, strong, fierce, loyal, unique, emotional, kind, loving, smart, sassy, goofy, friend, honest, self conscious, generous, quiet, helpful, beautiful, gentle, graceful, delicate, sweetness, heart, goddess, resilient, child like curiosity, non-judgmental, efficient, natural, enthusiastic, creative, soft, content, problem solver, would be chef, baker... . Many of these words have been given to me by others during some amazing gatherings. These words are truly a gift to me because they allow me to see how others see me. . What would your hands say? How do those you love see you? . I'd love to know what your hands might say! Drop me a line in the comments below. . Photo Credit: Pixabay
