When I went to COSTCO to change my new eye glasses' prescription with David, there are so many cookies on a counter of showcase of eye glasses for customers.
I was so surprised at the size of those cookies and they are so big that I cannot believe to eat it as a snack.
Many customers ate it and they looked enjoying having it for free.
But David and I didn't have them at all, because we know how terrible much sugar inside of those cookies influences for our bodies.
Most people just don't know the addiction of sugar at all.
So they usually eat so much sugar of many kinds of foods as they want every day.
David and I don't eat sugar at all these days because we know how bad it give our body inside.
I think that sugar is not food but toxin for our bodies.
Most people don't know the influence of sugar and they eat it without doubt & question.
But I learned how terrible sugar give influence to our body little by little.
Sugar has a powerful influence more than drugs.
If one you know the terrible influence of sugar, you would be more careful not to take it into your body.
I hope that many people realize how terrible sugar give influence our body sooner of later to stop having it as a habit.
Do you have sugar every day or not??
I wish that you will select wise choice not to take any sugar into your precious body...^^
Our reality is up to our way of thinking.
The reality is very flexible how to observe it in our mind.
To learn from anything around us at any situation, we can learn day by day from everything.
And if we think that all matters is up to our responsibility and way of thinking, we can handle any situation around us, I believe.
Any problems is not other's fault at all, just we have difference how to think this real world.
So we can think both of positive and negative way as we want.
Brain is very flexible and imaginable so much that we have so much potential to change our living world, I think.
Hos is your June??
Already 2 of third of this month has already passed, and time flies these days.
After 10 days later, new month will start to start the rest of half in this year!!
So I want to cherish each day of the rest of this month to connect with better July to begin the rest of a half year in 2018.
Day by day, summer is coming to Seattle and it became so hot temperature sometimes that I can feel the arrival.
How is your day in June??
I wish that you enjoy the rest of this month to welcome next month with positive thinking of your way of thinking as much as possible.
Our observation decide our life and we can change our way of thinking as you want....
Let's make our day be the best today in our life with smile!^^
Yesterday, David looked not so good mood after he came back to home.
I tried to let him feel better than before, but all my efforts didn't work for him as a failure.
So I gave up to trying to let him recovery his feeling because to make his mind is up to his choice.
Sometimes, David started to think seriously and deeply and I learned to wait his recovery by himself for a while.
So I let him be as he was last night, and I started to read a book of business by myself.
We didn't talk at all during our dinner time but it was O.K. for me.
To try open his heart by my energy is waste of my time and just I need to wait with patience with each silent mode .
But I wanted to express my love for him even he was not normal himself, because his love exists in his heart deeply without any words, I believe.
So I hugged him gently and I said to him, "I always love you, O.K.?" and he just nodded to my words before he sleep last night.
After he came back to home in this afternoon, he looked better feeling than yesterday.
So I am so happy that he could recovery his feeling by himself from yesterday.
Anyway, to love David as he is my unconditional love for him.
And I just want to keep doing my best without regret every day, because I want to grow up better myself than yesterday little by little.
How is your today??
I wish that you can feel better today than yesterday, even a little bit...let's grow up each other day by day!!^^
Today, David and I went to a park which is located near sea and has so many trails.
David ran into the trail when he was a university student and he knows the route well enough.
Sometimes we came to this park to watch this wonderful ocean view before, but we had never walked this trail together.
But I wanted to feel the nature to walk this trail together today and it was so great time that we could have a wonderful time to walk in a nature.
In this morning, it was a little cloudy weather but it changed better in this afternoon than this morning.
So it was the best timing to walk in this trail and we really enjoyed walking in a gorgeous nature.
We could hear lovely birds here and there and wind and temperature were so comfortable for us.
After we enjoyed walking this trail, we went to the beach to take a rest for a while.
David and I sit on a wild old trees on the beach and we lied down onto it together.
Nice ocean sound is so beautiful that we felt MOTHER nature with sea and great weather with sunshine and comfortable wind.
David and I felt so much happiness inside of heart that we really had a great time each other.
We talked about our life because it was NEW MOON yesterday to start new our challenge to each self for next 7 years.
Our goal of life is different but our love must be based on a foundation of our relationship of LOVE, for sure.
We just feel each confidence to believe in our strength to enrich our life from now on with trust and deep love.
Our love can move on our each mission to contribute this world to make our world better than now.
And we really felt that we can trust each self to make our dream actually happen sooner or later, we trust our achievement, anyway...
How is your middle of May??
Have a wonderful MAY the best in your life to enjoy your short life until your final day of life as much as possible!!
I wish that your dream will make happen as you wish with your effort and trust of yourself soon!!!^^
My life wants to live like this quote, "Live simply, Give more. Expect less." as far as I can.
But sometimes it is difficult for me to do as I want.
To live simply is to own materials as less as possible and I don't want to waste my time to own so much staffs anymore.
So if I bought something new, I throw away something old not to own too much materials.
To have so many staffs let my life be complicated, and I don't like that.
And I want to be simple life as much as possible not to think too much thinking to have more materials.
When I was young, I like to get something new clothes etc. and it was fun for me at that time.
But after I started YOGA in my life, my priority of life changed completely.
I realized that true happiness cannot depends on how much I own things but depends on how much I can find present having in my life already.
I have everything around me in my life now and my heart satisfied with myself these days.
In this world, many advertisement stimulate us to have more and bigger and newer every single day.
I know that it has a purpose to make us struggling to get something more, bigger and newer than present situation.
But I learned that it has nothing to do with my life to feel happiness anymore.
I want to live as simple as possible.
And I just keep my life as simple as I can from now on.
Life is already complicated, so I just want to live simply...^^
How is your life??
How is your priority in your life???
I wish that you can enjoy your own life as you want...^^
The begging of this month, our friends moved to Chaing Main in Thailand to start new their retirement life.
Last year, they visited Chain Mai for the first time as a trip and they loved there.
And then, they decided to move soon and they could get a retirement visa last month.
David met them for the first time at his working place and they invited us a dinner to know each other better before they move to Chaing Mai.
We really had a nice time during dinner time and soon they moved to Chaing Mai to start their new life.
I sent a message to her after they moved to Chaing Mai and she gave me a reply yesterday.
I guess that they settle down after a long flight from Seattle to Thailand after a while.
Her reply was so great that they enjoyed new retirement life to adjust day by day.
They are so friendly couple and David and I wish their new life with Thailand people little by little.
David and I really want to visit their place someday.
And we want to keep in touch from now on.
To start new retirement life in foreign country is not easy, but they will enjoy with smile and laugh as their wonderful personality.
David and I are so glad to hear from her that her message was so interesting to enjoy their new life with fun and smile.
Anyway, we will visit them someday and just we wish their happy life in Chaing Mai, Thailand where we love.^^
After I knew David's Dad recovery last night, I felt so relived and slept deeply so much.
David looked slept so deeply, too and he woke up around 6:00 a.m. in this morning and I woke up, too.
He wanted to stay with Dad more before we leave here and he went to see him early morning today.
But David wanted me sleep more to take a rest but I couldn't sleep back again.
And I started to get ready for my routine after David went to see his Dad in this morning.
I brought my YOGA mat from our home and I did my YOGA practice by myself as usual as I do at home.
I was thinking a lot about Dad's body condition and his life last night and I guess that David worried about him too much.
But after he knew his Dad's nice recovery last night, we can feel relived to know his better body condition anyway.
He will be 87 years old next April and his body became weaker than his young period.
But I believe that his Dad's strong mind and toughness of spirituality and God will guide his life from now on.
And Dad reads BIBLE every day and God is always with his heart, I can feel.
So David and I don't need to worry Dad too much and just we need to watch and protect his life from now on as he is.
I wish that his Dad will enjoy his birthday as his better body condition than now in next April together with all of his family again.
To meet new person is not just coincidence but essential happening in my life, I think.
Because there are more than 60 billion people in this world and my meeting people is limited in my life until my death.
After I saw the moment of the death of my grandfather at home when I was about 20 years ago, I realized that life and death is very close and natural for all beings.
We cannot escape from this realty and I will die someday unfortunately.
After we were born in this world, someday will die, we cannot escape from reality.
But actually, I am alive and to be alive today let me feel BLESSING.
I don't think that to be alive is not taken for granted but very lucky thing.
So I don't want to waste my lifetime and I cherish my life with gratitude every single day.
I want to seize my TODAY by doing my best not to regret when I die someday.
And I want to cherish all my meeting someone new in my life.
Life is too short to look back, so just I want to move on my life day by day.
How is your life these days??
I hope that you enjoy your own life with smile and love as much as possible, anyway...^^
Last night, I met a special couple who are going to move in Thailand to enjoy their retirement life from next month.
For the first time, David met the wife and they started to talk about their new plan and Thailand.
David has lived in Chaing Mai before and we love Thailand so much.
And the couple invited us dinner last time and we could share wonderful time to share with each life story.
We went to a restaurant who locates by seaside at downtown Seattle and offers great seafood.
David and I wonder what we will order, but we couldn't decided our order at home when we checked the menu of the restaurant.
David loves seafood and I am vegetarian but I wanted to enjoy special opportunity to enjoy seasonal & fresh seafood with them.
We ordered lobster dish and it was great texture and wonderful taste.
We kept talking about 3 hours and David and I laughed so hard that the couple were so wonderful couple to make us laugh.
We will keep in touch from now on and we wish that their new life in Thailand will be great with safe soon.
Anyway, I experienced special dinner time to get to know the couple last night.
And David and I want to see them in Chaing Mai someday.
We love Thailand and Chaing Mai is great city to stay, so we are looking forward to seeing them there.^^
To get to know special people in Seattle is my pleasure and I can learn native English conversation.
I couldn't listen to all of their conversation but I could understand most of it, so I am leaning English through my Seattle life every day.^^
To start new life in foreign country will be great challenge and wonderful experience for everyone.
I hope that they will enjoy their own life with love and smile as long as possible^^
Today, David and I took part in a Minister's funeral service.
She passed away on 2nd of Jan in this New Year and David knew her well like a part of his family when he was a child.
I have never met her before but I wanted to go the funeral service with David, anyway.
Her funeral service was very simply as her life and it was so nice.
David has so much memories about her so he looked so sad to see her off in a casket.
I don't know her at all but she became a server of GOD when she was 12 years old, it surprised me.
Less 1 hour, her funeral service was done and we talked about her life and our life each other.
To face someone's death make me think how to live every single day.
We will die someday, for sure...but I want to cherish my life as much as possible.
I hope that David can overcome her loss to move forward and I pray for her spirit in peace in heaven...><
