Gratefulness for better health (Part 3, return from vacation)

It’s time to finally wrap up my lessons learned from vacation with the final part of this blog trilogy. (Then, I can jump into some quick posts with food tips, podcast reviews, and other fun things I’ve been wanting to write about.) As you may recall, the last takeaway I had from back-to-back travels was to be more mindful and grateful of what I can do and what I can have, rather than focusing on the negatives of what I can’t do and what I can’t have.
