This is the Alamo. The number one battle of Texas. That’s how the Lone Star State got liberated from Mexico. Visiting the Alamo in San Antonio is a must experience. The Mission gardens are peaceful and majestic. You can find inner calmness and center there.
I love breaking into a yoga pose when the desire hits. My pink sneakers are perfect companions when out and about for extended times. We fueled ourselves with tacos and later on Starbucks. San Antonio treated us to some quality time together, regardless of that day’s somewhat gloomy weather.
Traveling boosts my life for many weeks and months to come. As I explore new places, I gather precious information about myself as well. I learn how to find my peaceful warrior wherever I go. I have kept my travel memories preciously stored and ready to be used, when need be. They are my toolbox to a balanced daily life.
I’ve enjoyed June so much. More than ever before, it feels. I just love every dulcet summer evening breeze of air, every unexpected opportunity to venture out for a long walk and every free moment now that work has once again, summer time thing, slowed down a bit.
I’ve used the time to connect with others, and myself, too. I’ve sought zen moments and longed for mindfulness meditation. I’ve practiced being here and now. Just enjoying the present time without rushing anywhere else forward in thoughts.
Truly appreciating what you have here, now and today takes practice. Of course things could be better, and of course we should strive for better results from ourselves, yet at the same time it is so liberating when you really learn how not to long for anything other than now. Accepting that life goes as it does, and that my job is to adapt to it.
Life becomes an exciting journey when you start living it with a thankful servant’s heart. When you wake up in the morning and think “my input is important so what can I do today to make a difference?” I have my list of things to pray and work on this summer. Do you have one, too?
