A few of my favorite things...

There are so many experiences living in Thailand, and I have a plethora of photos to help prove it. Too many to put on my main site page, so I am venturing into the blogosphere. 

Since September 2011, I have called Phuket my home. Originally, I was meant to stay six months-  that deadline has long passed. When faced with apprehension about a life plan, a wise friend had simple but impactful advice to offer: "go with the flow."  

I took those words to heart, and have been trying to live my life with purpose, fullfillment, and mindfulness. I am not able to control everything that happens to and around me, but I can decide my reaction. Some days I succeed, and others-  well... I fall flat on my face. When those 'oh crap' moments happen, I try to remind myself of all the beauty that surronds me. So, without further ado, here are a few of my favorite things that help me grow, appreciate, and continue to go with that 'flow' while living on this island: 

new flavors and brillant colors. lip-burning, mouth-watering sensations.  

driving ten minutes and being amongst these giants.

sunrises (and the friends that watch them with me). 

looking up and seeing this guy. 

every mind-racing thought slows down when seeing this view.
