journeyofnow In someone's darkest hour your simple act of kindness may imitate the sunrise, and to sad eyes you become their only source of light.

journeyofnow @stellerstories asked the community what does home mean to you. There were a lot of wonderful submissions.

The beach for me is my home away from home. It is my place for renewal and reflection. To see my full story and my philosophical musings click the link on my bio.

What does home mean to you?

journeyofnow Riding my bike, it's a moment to watch my thoughts and to observe nature unfold infront of me. Today as I ride, I listen to my breathing, the turning of my wheels on my bike. Thoughts of friends and loved ones appear across my mind like a moving vista outside of my car. Then as I hit a winding path, a sudden realization hits me out of that empty space between thoughts. I soak in that realization for learning and I'm thankful for this moment, this awareness, this learning.
Happy Saturday.

journeyofnow Do you like photography, do you like creating videos, do you like writing? Well, I'm on a new platform called Steller. I have not been this excited about the new platform since instagram. Why am I excited? This is a platform that is designed mobile first, just like instagram. Also, the platform is fast and simple. Steller allows you to tell fantastic stories using any combination of video, text, and pictures. It also has a good social layer which sparks conversations.

Content for Steller is displayed on virtual pages that can be swiped through like a book, all with beautiful 3-D parallax effects. The fact that Steller's creation tools, which essentially allow you to pick from simple templates for displaying the different types of media, make this so simple is what makes the app very empowering. I can't get over how amazing and high quality many of the stories are already. Also how nice the community and the people that work for the company is. To me it has some of the vibe of the early instagram days.

If you plan on getting on Steller, and I highly suggest that you do, please let me know. I would love to see what you create over there. You can find me at @journeyofnow. I have created a few collections of curated content of users and created a few of my own. Also check out a few awesome Steller accounts over there like @mariannehope @missyjena @jeffonline @andy_best @bobbyanwar @jordanfoy_ and the main account @stellerstories.

journeyofnow The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamouring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of contemplation. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace. ~ Kate Chopin, The Awakening 3w

journeyofnow She has such a calming spirit, she speaks quietly and is always there. If you listen and watch you can hear her very heartbeat in the waves, and you can feel her breath in the air. She nurtures all and cares for all, yes Mother Nature.

Happy Saturday!

journeyofnow Yesterday is now history, today is a fresh start. Let's make the most of it . On a side note, instead of using the native camera app I tried out the pro HDR x app, this is the replacement for pro HDR. The new app is just amazing, specially on the iPhone6, with its faster processor. It takes 3 shots at different exposures in a fraction of a second, so you can now capture things like waves and other slow moving objects. Since it captures three different shots, it allows for more natural shots closer to what your eye sees with a better range of tones, no more of that horrible halo effect. 4w

journeyofnow I'm currently feeling very content, and in an overall good place. I had a nice ride. I felt the cool wind of 67 degrees as I went on a nice 6 mile bike ride. I slowly watched as the world began to unfold in front of my very own eyes, while listening to Radiohead and Koreless. This indeed is one of those perfect moments, I hope you have your perfect moment today . 4w

journeyofnow { Musings }

One of my beliefs is that everyone that comes into my life is here to teach some aspect of myself. Having that approach to people and life opens up the opportunity for growth and learning about yourself. Being open to teachable moments, I have learned about patience; I have learned about forgiveness. I have learned to be kind to myself. I have learned what it is like to feel happiness, love compassion, and so much more.
When someone angers you for example, feel the anger. Yeah, I know it's crazy, don't try immediately to suppress your anger. If you keep trying to get rid of the feeling of anger, it will keep coming back and you will never understand the 'why'. You'll lose the opportunity to learn, and the cycle will continue. Asking why and ensuring that you are not judgmental, your mind will eventually find an answer to why you are upset, which is always something deeper once you peel back the layers. Once you get to the way, it will eventually fade away with no hold over your mind.
