    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. The calm and the serenity are so inviting, that I am visualising myself there (especially sitting in that chair, under those trees and soaking up all that beauty)…oh…and that cake, too. 🙂

    For self-care today, I treated myself to a long-overdue hair cut and purchased some peppermint and tea tree essential oil (excellent for headaches, when they sometimes try to disrupt a perfectly good day.) Today, thankfully, wasn’t one of them 🙂ReplyCancel

    This is beautiful. Even though I am not there, it is said that just staring at a picture of a landscape can benefit ones feeling of peace and joy. I believe it. Since I am not always good at making up things in my mind, this gives me a reference. I might use it next time I meditate!ReplyCancel
