Every day thankful for the opportunity to stay here in the mountains where we can recharge our batteries over the winter. Sometimes when looking at current situations or good events that are suddenly brought into ones existence, my first instinct is to think "damn we're lucky", but with a second thought, I always come to the same conclusion: You receive what you give.
The energies you have sent out in the universe will always bounce back at you.
Therefore is skiing, yoga or any training/exercise form that keeps you grounded, calm and focused very important in my eyes. Because it is when you are spiritually connected to your real self and have de-cluttered life that you can make the best decisions for yourself, and as a result, gain the collected thoughtfulness and time to be a better person to the ones around you.
