Being a child learning a new thing about an old thing.
I think I a pretty decent at cleaning. But mum is always smarter and wiser. So I learnt a lot. Well been learning a lot this week. And it has been good to be a child again with new eyes. These old eyes miss the new things, the ego thinks it knows it all. But a wide eye child sees the new and is ready learn via playing..😉😉😉

I love this ^ so much!
Thank you for sharing your learning aka growth experiences this week.
I love the days that when this happens spontaneously, all my surroundings feel like very new, as if seeing for the first time. What a gift! Your post reminded me of that. 😊 I really appreciate your psychology blog. Thank you!
What’s your favourite season of the year? If it’s fall, you’ll be sure to enjoy the vibrant colours of the autumn leaves in my psychology video too!
This is the philosophy I try to live by.
I see so many young people struggling with the roller coaster nature of COVID 19.
Especially when it comes to mindfulness and staying hopeful during their college and university studies.
Hence the motivation for both this ^ post and last week’s psychology video:
We have lived through adversity Norah, and mindfulness was (is) our saving grace. For some: it’s a whole new life experience.
Love knowing you’re appreciating each moment with me.
Thanks for reading to the background behind this post.
Multilayered, as always. That’s what makes life interesting.
I always enjoy your uplifting messages. Thanks for brightening my days.
“Nothing lasts forever” ❤
When things are good (even during the pandemic) I often think: Who Am I To Be Happy?
And when things are bad I often think: How long will this _______ last?
“Nothing last forever” reminds me to enjoy the good – really enjoy the good – and breathe deeply through the bad.
Because… nothing lasts forever.
A wisdom, my professor twin, that we are both blessed with because of our age (silver lining.. literally!).
A little (virtual) coffee (blog) talk as I type this up in (chilly) Canada.. ❤💭❤
Have a wonderful day Dr. G!
☕️ 👩🏽💻 🍳 literally twinning this AM! Sending you lots of love and virtual hugs.

Not an easy challenge, but worth the ongoing effort.
Always. Worth. It.
Awesome reminder, thank you. This makes me think of this quote: a moment is all we can ever ask of perfection. I forgot which book that came from. You are so right. If we see the world with wonder, it will reflect it back at us.
The only thing better than seeing the world with wonder – is sharing the wondrous view with fellow bloggers like both of you Markus and Micah.. Wishing you both a day filled with renewal and unexpected inspiration. 🍁
Be always grateful.
Curious…. What’s on your gratitude list today? 👀 💭
Amazing words. Thank you so much for your incredible post. So important Cris

What are you noticing for the very first time, in this moment Cris?
Hi Doctor Dinardo, wonderful to hear another inspiring message – been a while since you came through. Like a big vitamin B Jab, only with no pain and ready-to-fly feeling. Thank you. I have, for a number of years, kept a daily gratitude journal and it works wonders for me. Blessings.
