Be Present in all Things and Thankful for all Things

beyond-blessed_-67 This past week we traded New York City crisp weather for California sunshine and beaches. You may have seen it on my insta story– it was gorgeous! Each evening we would take long walks on the beach, soak up each others company and simply enjoy the slower pace of life. It was perfect.

Due to the dramatic difference between our work-filled, fast-paced lives in NYC and the unscheduled, beach-filled days in California, it was easy to be present. It was easy to be thankful. But in life, we don’t always get these reminders. Sometimes we need the reminder right where we are- right here, right now, today. We need to be present and be thankful because we truly are beyond blessed- even in the midst of chaos and trials.

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season quickly approaching, count this as your reminder to be still and reflect. Be present. Be thankful. This holiday season, I want to remind you us to be present in all things and thankful for all things. Take a moment to be still and to give thanks- whether that mean savoring that sip of coffee a little more from your office desk or watching the sunset over the ocean. Cherish it. Life is a gift.

What is something you are thankful for?

    All your pics are exactly what I envision every single morning. It’s the future vacation that I want once my business can support it. I try to meditate every morning and be mindful multiple times per day. I highly recommend it to anyone. You’re gorgeous!

    Absolutely beautiful picture and message. Nowadays we get consumed by work and life’s demands that we just exist…
