Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

Mindfulness made simple


Cruising in the bluest seas of the Philippines in the early hours of the morning is a tribute to calm, peace and mindfulness.  One of those precious times that naturally takes all your awareness on the present moment and makes your heart smile. As you think to yourself.. What a wonderful world…

In response to the  Weekly Photo Challenge on Monochromatic
