Mind Over Matter

I think the power of positive thinking can heal a lot of things, even a painful body.

I was amazed on how fast I’m healing, the doctor took out my drainage tube yesterday and I’m back to work today. The encouraging and kind words from you all put a smile on my face, I know I’ll be able to make it to the Lao New Year celebration at our local temple this year.

Laos celebrate Peemai Lao on April 14th to the 16th, and I hope you and your family have a Happy and Safe Lao New Year.

  1. A good attitude and outlook on life is a huge advantage when sick or recovering from a surgical event. Things to look forward to and family and friends how support help a great deal, too. Happy to hear you are healing quickly and properly.

    I will be looking forward to your photos from the celebration. Full of life and color to be sure.

    • Hi Scott, I’m very fortunate to have a good family support, and kind of surprised of how understanding my work place are. The event at our local temple will be fun and festive and it looks like we will have a good weather also. I hope to take picture and do video this time.

  2. Sok Dee Pee Mai der Nye.. I’m glad to hear that you’re back on your feet again. I will be looking forward to see pictures from the new year celebration. There are so many new year celebrations in Northern Cali from this weekend on to the first weekend of May. I might be attending one this weekend and plan on attending one in San Francisco at the end of month.

    Once again.. sok dee pee mai der.. kor hai jao yu dee mee hang.. pee mai ma nee hai dai soke dai larb lai lai der :-). sa thuuuuu… sa thuuuuuuuu..

    • Hi seeharhed, sa thu! I feel so blessed at my blog today. 🙂

      I wasn’t sure if I will be able to attend the Lao New Year at our local temple at first, but I fell a lot better this week. It’s good to get blessed at the temple and hopefully all the sickness will remain in the old year while we move forward to the New Year with good health. If you get to attend the event don’t forget to take lots of picture, I would love to see what the temple looks like in that part of the country.

  3. I visited your blog again (after having travelled “down under” for 10 weeks), I can imagine you have had a difficult time – but I’m glad to see, that you are getting better these days! I enjoyed your saturday random photos and the joy and energy you had here. And I love the positive power in this post – and wish you a happy Lao New Year!

    • Thanks truels, I’m healing very well and glad that there’s no complication. I think our photography shows the joy of living and I’m looking forward to seeing your vacation photos as well.

    • Hi Cambree, it’s a relief that I didn’t have any complication and glad that they found the root of the problem on the first test. I can walk fast again. 🙂
