This is such a thought provoking post! It is so difficult not to absorb other people's opinions. Wonderful photos! thelifeofastudenttraveller.blogspot.co.uk

I don't necessarily think it is about erasing what you already know. I think it is more about understanding the opinions of others and having the confidence in yourself to form your own thoughts in conjunction with the knowledge someone has shared with you. Whenever I receive information I always think to myself, "Does this sit well in my heart? Does this speak to me?" If the answer is no, then I take a step back and provide myself with enough information to make my own opinion. Beautiful photography :) www.thatscoralynn.com

Egos often seem to have a way of pushing themselves the forefront of our minds and battling with one another, causing tension… arguments… stressful situations. Read more »

Moab has been on my bucket list for years now! It looks like such an amazing place to visit, but somehow, I always find somewhere else to travel. After this post though, I may be moving it up a few spaces on that list! Samantha http://splendorandforge.wordpress.com

Absolutely stunning. This area reminds me of some of the places around Taxco, Mexico where we source all of our boho silver jewelry made by local artisans.

I usually wake up a little before the sun (school), and I do quite love it. For some reason, it makes me feel more awake and at peace...it's a sense of goodness that I've fallen in love with. http://thoughtdweller.blogspot.com/

I read this whole peice aloud - you write so beautifully! I agree with what you believe to be a chief cause of human suffering, our removal from nature...so I am gonna absorb this advice and try to restore the balance. Thank you! :D

Big Sur changed mine and my partners lives in such a beautiful way. The best tip I can give is that it's legal to stay the night at any turn out. Free camp site right over the beach you say?! https://instagram.com/p/tLT5enLZmp/?modal=true Thanks for the review on The Henry Miller Memorial Library, definitely top of my list next time we go back. xoxo Vanessa

I'm sure you hate answering the same question all the time considering it's your art and your style...but dude, what do you do to all of your photos to make them look so utterly dreamy? Especially the first couple and your insta. Desaturate the yellow hues? They're just so fresh and bright! Please, if you don't mind sharing your process I would really love to learn. Thanks, jana

I love the Rockies, almost as much as I love the Sierras. What a perfect way to describe that place, the place that always calls to you. I love this. It looks like you guys had a wonderful trip.

Post image for Book Club Meeting, Chapters 4-5: A Breathing Room & Inviting the Bell

It’s a space that calms you upon entering; an entire room dedicated to taking breaths in and out, connecting mind to body, and returning home to yourself. Read more »

These were 2 simple chapters but loaded with good advice! I love the idea of a breathing room but my 1-bedroom apartment sadly offers little space. Set on the idea though, I've cleared a corner, underneath a window to bring in natural light. I've laid down a soft blanket and surrounded the small space with a few things that help me relax, as Thich Nhat Hanh suggests. Some days it seems like we wake up, go to work, run errands, get home, and then just continue the business until bed. Truly I never feel like I have time to relax until the weekends. I think a "breathing corner" might remind me to sit and relax for a few minutes each day and get centered again.

As soon as I seen your first pic, I knew you had to have been through Utah. I hail from this beautiful state, and it is truly everything one could possibly imagine, and more! Doesn't matter how many times I see the beauty and majesticness of the scenery here, it takes my breath away every time!

Love this! Long distance can be difficult… I've done it a few times and haven't seemed to figure it out yet. You guys really respect what is keeping you apart and it looks like it helps with the distance. Hope you guys got to spend V Day together!
