When times are tough, appreciate

Life sucks. This much we know. But life can also be full of the inspirational, the amazing, the beautiful. We must never forget that, and it helps to remember that when times are tough, we need to appreciate. The people you love, the air you breathe, the sustenance you get from food, the sun setting in the distance, the silence of snow, the cool winter air. Appreciation is the key to getting through, the key to seeing the inspiration, the amazement, the beauty in life. Without which, you are left with a life that sucks. This much we know.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
