Before they tamed your wolves with reason…

Today I simply want to share one of my favorite quotes, along with one of my favorite views. I have this quote, and a few other as inspiration on my computer. I usually open my inspiration file, as I devour my morning coffee (black pf course.)

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Have an amazing day!

Choose Your Thoughts

mf

I like watching Randy Gage’s Youtube channel. I usually start my work week by watching the latest episode there (he creates one new episode every week.) I find that it gives my week an awesome start. The last one was about the process of thoughts. About processing information, and drawing logical conclusions based on serious critical thinking. To become the thinker of the thought. In short to to think about what you think about. You choose your thoughts. You control them. …or you can choose to ignore that, and let circumstances and other people choose.

I prefer to actively be mindful about my thoughts. When I feel that my thoughts are taking off in a direction that isn’t helpful for my well being, I believe that it is my responsibility to change the direction of my thoughts.

What are your thoughts? How do you do that? Exercise, grooming a horse, going for a hike, or a road trip helps me. How can you think negative thoughts when your body feels good (exercise)? Or when you enjoy the great outdoors? When nature take over your senses completely?

The photos in today’s post are from a Memorial Day hike, along the McCloud River.

It’s all about experiences, the healing power of nature, and the great outdoors in northern California.

Friend

I started to write a post about a magical hike we made on Memorial day (I’ll share it with you later on, no need to worry,) when new entries to the Weekly Photo Challenge started to fill up my inbox. This week’s theme Friend, is just to good to pass up on.

I grew up with German Shepherds, and I just love the breed. I’m not sure if there is any living soul more loyal than one of a German Shepherd. My two year old girl Gretchen, a rescue that I’ve only had a couple months have quickly become my shadow. If I’m there, she is there.

Gretchen loves to keep me company when I work in my garden. This week we’ve been (re)planting peach trees (into bigger containers. All my trees grows in containers.)

With a German Shepherd you’re just never lonely. As a woman I feel much better hiking on secluded trails, or spending time in rural areas (something I enjoy tremendously) with a German Shepherd by my side.

I love how intelligent, and attentive they are. How they love to learn new things, and always says yes to adventure! Tell me about your friend! If you participate in the photo challenge, feel free to leave a link to your post in a comment, I’d love to see it!
