Wat Temple

When I got out of the car I, like a lot of people, was caught off guard by the house in front of me. However, the exterior of this temple did not change how much I took out of the day. I am still in awe of my experience at the Wat Temple. The Thai culture is something that I wish my life was more like. The family and people that we met were kind, generous, and very careful and caring about how we were feeling. I think that being mindful of yourself and how your actions make other feel is a virtue that everyone should at least try to incorporate in their lives. Throughout the whole day I was at peace. This may have come from the meditation exercise that we did. I have actually been trying to do this everyday and it really makes a difference.

One learning goal that I have for this trip is to learn and take home with me a piece of Thai culture. I tend to get stressed out quite a bit. I think that incorporating the Thai and Buddhist beliefs into my own life will make me a happier and healthier person.


One thought on “Wat Temple”

  1. Hi Crystal, it was great meeting you! I agree, there are so many things we can learn from Thai culture and implement into our everyday lives. Their peaceful and happy living is really inspirational in comparison to our fast-paced, individualistic society. I love your comment on being mindful of our actions and how they make others feel. Also, I’m happy to hear you enjoy meditating because I do too! I have been incorporating it into my every day (or every other day) living, and I really have found it to be beneficial in slowing down my busy days and taking a moment to simply be. I’m looking forward to more practice in Thailand! See you soon 🙂
