5. Meditation

It’s the variety! There are probably as many ways to meditate as there are people!

6. Reading

Reading is a great therapy. It is stepping away into a different space … an emptying of sorts. Then, anchoring and filling the mind with a new focus for a time. Hey, it sounds a bit like meditation!

7. Mantras

What do you think about while chanting mantras? The words you are saying and the intention behind them I hope! It is having a focused mind with a specific intent – while speaking in the language of energy. Hmmm, sounds meditative. And effective!

8. Transporting Disabled Veterans

It feels like such a small thing at times, but it’s pretty big for those who can’t get to the doctor on their own. In its own way, it touches lives – and not just theirs. It brings some wild stories and wild rides – with a huge assortment of unforgettable memories, names and faces.

9. Blogging

My feelings on blogging have been very diverse. They have ranged from:

  • How do people do this every day?
  • It seemed like a good idea at the time.
  • Do I have to?
  • I just made 50 straight days of posting, how about that!
  • I think I like this!
  • Just keep posting, just keep posting, swimming, swimming… (oh that’s Dory) posting!
  • This has become a “thing”
  • Who would I be if I didn’t blog?

It will be my one-year anniversary blogging in April and it’s been quite a journey … it has been its own Pilgrimage.

10. Tribe

It’s a different way of being and thinking for some. It’s about so many things done in the spirit of togetherness… it’s never an option to step away for too long. Separateness is only by circumstance, and togetherness is always the goal.
