Especially in times of conflict, we start to question everything big and small.
Keeping an active mind, blogging, channeling negative energy into other positive creative outlets and maintaining a self-care routine are the ways I have learned work best for me to keep my light shining.
I have included an example of the artwork in which I have channeled some of the negative emotions into something I enjoy. I hope you enjoy this as well.
What are some of your favorite coping strategies during difficult times?

The Duality of Life and Death. ...
Duality teaches us that every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing forces. Yet these forces are not just opposites; they are complementary. They do not cancel out each other, they merely balance each other like the dual wings of a bird.
I struggle to maintain a balanced lifestyle like I am sure most of us do. Everyone walks their own path in life and in doing so I recommend if you haven't already found it to seek out your own ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
The closer I get to my own personal balance the more satisfied and happier I feel. It is a constant balancing act.
Family, Blogging, getting out in nature, droning, photo editing, creating, are ways I help balance my stressful day job as a social worker.
Please share in the comments some of your own ways you help maintain your balance.

What is the Flow?
The brain can process roughly a maximum of 110 pieces of information per second. But what if we could play that information in our minds in slow motion? Studies performed by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, have helped us gain the first insights into this phenomena.

Hello Panda Friends. The insomniac in me stayed up late last night, inspired to help my fellow introverts that may get anxious or overwhelmed or annoyed with so many relatives on this Thanksgiving Holiday. Chill out to my Art and music video for a 60 second reset. Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 Everyone 🤗🙌🐼🙌
Lately, I feel like I have been neglecting my blog for other projects that have consumed what little spare time I have. I've been busy traveling and focusing on photography, and working with drones.
Like I've said in a previous post, I get many little insights and inspirations first thing in the morning, especially driving. I've learned how to use my smart phone to vocally record my insights while traveling. Otherwise, I would forget them faster than they hit me.
I wanted to start sharing these little insights with you. I hope you like them and get some inspiration for yourself.

Had a wonderful weekend mucking it up in Northern Michigan soaking and bathing in it’s raw natural beauty. Feeling energized to get back to my job and mission in life. More footage coming after edits are completed. Enjoy 😉
It’s wonderful we all can retreat and gather strength within when we are helping others in crisis.
