How I get ready for skiing: deflate the tires of my double-jogging stroller and push the kids up a steep hill multiple times.

Great writeup about using mindfulness to avoid being judgmental.

---

We all have a tendency to mindlessly pigeonhole people: He’s rigid. She’s impulsive. But when you freeze someone in that way, you don’t get the chance to enjoy a relationship with them or use their talents. Mindfulness helps you to appreciate why people behave the way they do. It makes sense to them at the time, or else they wouldn’t do it.

We did a study in which we asked people to rate their own character traits—the things they would most like to change and the things they most valued about themselves—and we found a big irony. The traits that people valued tended to be positive versions of the ones they wanted to change. So the reason I personally can’t stop being impulsive is that I value being spontaneous. That means if you want to change my behavior, you’ll have to persuade me not to like spontaneity. But chances are that when you see me from this proper perspective—spontaneous rather than impulsive—you won’t want to change me.

I'm done. I hiked for 20 hours and 20 minutes. 33.5 miles from the Mission to Stinson Beach then back to Mill Valley. It feels great to finally be out of Muir Woods. I never want to go back. I never want to talk about it again. I just want to sleep. #Train4Everest #EverestAwesome

Havent actually eaten here bc the girl on the phone didn't seem very nice. I told her that and she insisted she was, but I really don't believe her. I'd recommend going someplace with less hauty service.

Overall opinion: empty cup of tea Gustos is a recommended cafe in the Bondi Beach area, but it does not deliver the food to match the line out the door. Lackluster Food: Poached eggs are super bland, spinach unpoached, toast burnt on one end, untoasted on the other end, side of ham is uncooked deli meat. Green tea is small and cold. Pesto sauce is great though! Everything is generally overpriced, but the staff are sweet. Just working with a poor kitchen and limited competition. The wifi works fine. I'd stop in for a cappuccino and to do a little work, maybe, but not to eat.

Trio is posted up on the cliffs overlooking the south side of Bondi Beach. The food (chorizo breakfast burrito or Mediterranean brekkie are choice) is great, the coffee delivers, and the staff are the furthest thing from dodgy. Plus they have wifi, which appears to be a rare find here still. Great spot for food and to do some work on a nice day! Highly recommended!
