How To Maintain Gratitude & Not Escape Reality

You know how some mornings you wake up happy and excited for life - for no apparent reason? Then want to go on a spontaneous road trip and explore earth? But then realize you have responsibilities and can't?

Well, today was one of those days. I just felt high on life, happy to be alive. 

Lately, I have been so busy, being pulled into multiple directions, that I have just been wanting to escape. Literally. If there was an eject button, I would have pressed it by now. But Im in this phase of rebuilding  my life with a sold foundation, ethically, morally, responsibly, etc. So I have to put on my big boy shoes and do the necessary work day-by-day so I can have more freedom in the long term vision I have for myself. 

That being said, when I woke up the first thing I wanted to go do was to drive away and go on a road-trip. Its Friday, I'm feeling inspired and just want to go explore some new place on this beautiful place we call Earth. But I cant, I still have that 9-5 job. which I love by the way - Its a great job and I am learning so much about the entertainment industry. But at the same time, I just need a vacation...

So instead of reacting and being impulsive (I've learned now that those two things can be EXTREMELY destructive), I decided to connect to my inner being, go outside, and find the beauty and feel grateful for whats around me. 

I hope this video inspires you to be grateful for whats around you and to connect to nature more regularly. 

From my heart to yours.
