Hi, I’m Daphne. In 2016, my husband and I and our three children sold our house in New Jersey and traveled. We went to several places in SE Asia and then returned to the US and drove across the country, for the third time, as well as into parts of Canada. It was a life-changing experience.

When we were in the Philippines, I picked up this small journal for US $0.25 cents. The very first thing I wrote on this journal are  affirmations that are attributed to Buddhist Master Atisha and this is what it says:

“The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.”

 I wrote this down so that I could make this happen in my life. It is a never-ending journey, a constant fine tuning of body and mind. This blog is a part of that journey…


Stay a little
Stay awhile.

I am happy to have you.
