Be the morning in everyone’s eyes and make their day turn into a thing of beauty.~
The scent of the morning is prepared by the night; the scent of the night is prepared by the day; everything helps everything~
Be mindful. Be grateful. Be positive. Be true. Be kind.~
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.~
Jo’s Monday Walk

Stay safe and enjoy!
After sitting and working from home for almost 8 hours I needed some fresh air. The only option was to be on mountains. Mountains are less crowded when weather is cold, wet and windy and social distancing is obligatory.
For Jo’s Monday Walk.
As I said in my previous post, last Thursday we had our annual ski/tour day in my office. It’s like a team building activity. I opted to join the tour/hiking group. Here are some images which I dedicated to Jo’s Monday walk theme, its been a while since I participate in it.
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity ~
Some places were difficult to walk but fortunately I managed it without spikes. Going uphill was easier than going down. As the other road was facing south west there was not much snow and going downhill was OK but hard on knees for the incline was steep.
When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps ~
5th of March was our annual tour/ski day in office. The possibilities were to join downhill or cross country ski or a hiking tour. I chose the third option. I will write and share my experience in another post. For now it’s the tree on the top.

Spectacular view of Bergen city from Stoltzekleiven, which is one of the most popular trails in Bergen. It is a steep paved trail and stairs with approximately 722 steps up to Sandviksfjellet. Sandviksfjellet is one of the traditional seven mountains that surround the city centre of Bergen.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up ~
On weekend I was got busy hiking here and there hence a late post 🙂
I would like to share two quotes for this week’s Nurturing Thursday.
This is so true even I have experienced it just “today”
It is raining continuously for more than 10 hours now and so there was no point in going on a hike today. The only option left was inside training. Due to heavy work load I could not manage to go early. One would expect many health enthusiats at the end of the day as our training facility is avaliable to every staff member in our building.
I stood for a while at the entrance of training hall thinking shall I or shall I not enter. I saw some very serious trainers. These are the people who set every equipment at the maximum cutoff or very end. Leg press 150kg, lat pull 150 kg and so on. I really hestitated to go in.
I knew if I did not go in right now I shall be lazy later. With a big sigh I stepped in. From outside I could see only the unkown strong ones but of course there were some known faces inside. I was able to finish what I decided. I am happy and satisfied at the end for not under estimating myself.
Have a nice weekend friends!
For todays Nurturing Thursday session, I would like to present two quotes. Last couple of days I was thinking on this topic and I wanted to put something related to health. I feel our physical health and mental health both are equally important.
According to Julie Parker
“Place your value as a person above your size, shape or weight. Your dress size is no more important than your shoe size.”
But then Buddha says, “To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
Which one do you prefer?
