Mindfulness

We are surrounded by different textures.  One of the principle components of mindfulness is to pay attention to things around us, focus on that – not things that worry us such as finances or school.  Just to stay in the moment.

I took a trip to Malaysia a few months ago and it is an absolutely beautiful country.  When I went, almost no one here knew were it was.  After all the publicity about the missing plane, and then the plane being shot down – it seems like everyone knows where it is.  Well, now that you all know – you should visit it!  It really is a beautiful place.

While I was there, I paid attention to everything.  I visited a multitude of places during my month there.  While on the beach though, there were all these little crabs!  I live in FL so of course I have been to the beach.  But for some reason, being on the beach there was just fun.  I saw these crabs and they were amazing.  Thousands of them!  Scurrying around – they created all these cool designs on the ground.  They were called bubbling (bubbler) crabs.  They make these little sand pellets and they usually form very cool circular shapes.  I did not get a picture of one of the designs, but I did get a picture of some of them.

Focusing on all the beauty of the area though took my mind off of any problems going through my mind.  Mindfulness is amazing when you actually use it.  Of course, they key is using it!

  1. I’m really glad you enjoyed your time there. I find it so so hard to practice mindfullness but it’s something I need to master. However, I’ve never been abroad but I know things like this would help me so much! But you’re so right this can be practiced anywhere – it’s why I like going on walks and stuff too!
    The photos are lovely too and crabs are so cuteeeeeee :3 Thank you for sharing a part of your experience with us 🙂

  2. I find it incredibly hard to practice mindfulness too! It is something I am still learning – and it is so frustrating at times for me. I have just taken a few trips abroad recently for the first times. Between March and June I took 2 for the first time in my life – they were great though, but now I am broke, so no more for a long time! You should definitely do it if you get a chance, it really opens up your eyes and it kind of takes you away from any problems you might have.
