The new year is here! So far this year I have been in Tokyo, Japan. It has been such a wonderful experience, filled with laughter, peace, and love. I have met many people from different parts of the world, France, Australia, India, Africa, of course Japan, and New Zealand. When meeting so many people from all over, it helps me to really recognize the oneness of us all, the world is our ground, we are more alike than we all think.
Life is certainly the most precious gift we are given, treasure it. Fill your life with memories of laughter, joy, peace, spreading love, focus on the things that make you feel good. A positive mindset goes a very long way. The more I strengthen my mind to focus on the good things in this world, the better I am able to treasure every precious moment of being here. When the mind is positive, everything becomes positive. Even difficulties appear as opportunities to make you stronger.
No matter where you are in the world, seek happiness where you are. You don't have to be in Japan or any exotic land, you just have to be you. To change one's surroundings does not permanently change their mindset. Even when I think of myself years ago and how little I thought of myself. I was focused on what other people thought of me which made me very unhappy. My focus has most certainly shifted to the things in my life that bring me joy. LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE. DO YOU but always be kind!
