I had had enough of this lying around today. After a nap (!!), I decided I was going to bake a cake. SO, as I set up, I also brought in my laptop to listen to a lecture or talk as is my custom when I cook. Cramming fingers be darned!!
I came to this particular TedxSan Francisco Talk by Louie Schwarzberg. It really was a moment that made me stop everything and pause. Went to the laptop and rewound what I just heard. It was so profound, yet so simple. For me, for that moment, it is perfect. It reminded me of being more mindful of what is around me – the beautiful changing sky, the cycle of life happening every second in the garden and nature that surrounds us, the ever-changing emotions of people and our own reactions to them.

I urge you to spend 18 minutes to listen to this amazing video and allow gratitude to provoke you into change. Carpe Diem!
