It’s day 4 of our gratitude journaling experiment and Thank the Angels, we’ve hit some major breakthroughs. You see, we were really inspired to start this little project because we know we have the power to improve things for ourselves–but we were a little bummed.
We began our Bliss Tour with the intentions of living more sustainably, adventuring out into culturally rainbowlicious places, and having more time with Mama Earth. And, even though we made the decision to sell our first BlIss Mobile after she broke down in Amarillo, TX– our new plan to hit Central and South America via Mexico sounded very exciting and also a great way to save money for a new house on wheels.
Buhhhhhhhhhht, dang! It’s been tough to get healthy foods here in Mexico. Were living in our third city in 3 months, and last week we hit a low point. All were really wanted were some conscious local friends to chat conspiracy over green juice with, ya know?
All we really wanted was to be able to afford the extra dough it costs to eat healthier here.
All we really wanted was for our plumbing to quit exploding and for heaven’s sake— to have some real contact with nature (new post coming on our actual experiences in Mexico with pics).
So, 4 days ago we decided to put all of our eggs in the gratitude basket, so to speak, and quit our whining about what we don’t have. Clearly, the fresh green coconuts that I get every day outside my door can help me sustain a decent gratitude glow. Clearly there are plenty of good things about Mexico, even if it isn’t our dream destination.
I can’t wait longer to share the results, so here you go:
This morning, we were invited out to breakfast by a new friend, and introduced to a few local healers who just so happened to be part of a Quantum Healing Expo. I got a free biofeedback session that was really soothing. It was awesome to swap stories and talk about things we are interested in.
Then, you’ll never believe this. I’m not one for zoos really. But I love animals and crave time with them. I got to sit face to face with a tiger, and just enjoy his warm company. His name was Diego, and a tiny fence with holes separated us. I wanted to pet him, but I didn’t. It was nice to just relax with him. He had quite a healing effect on me. Then, the boys and I strolled back to our side of town and had a delicious vegetarian buffet, met more smiling people, and now we are sitting at a Spanish Tapas joint with live music– and Dougie just manifested a his favorite French song just by mentioning it to us. I’m linking the song here. We are so grateful for all of these new goodies in our lives. Here goes our individual lists.

Reiki for taking away my neck pain
The sound of birds chirping
Looking into the tigers eyes
Time to breathe and rest
A whole day in the sunshine
So many beautiful gems
My hubby’s silly jokes
So many opportunities
