Rene and I at the abandoned gold prospecting mine deep in the Amazon Jungle, part of the Juruena natural reserve. So much destruction...Very sad…

Back to our city 💙Houston!🌃 It’s humid and the mosquitoes are crazy but after all the places we have been we have really fallen in love with this city!💙 One more loop around the country and still so many places to see before we part with Olive BUT our God has really blessed us with this place... many beautiful sunsets while neighborhood shopping for where we will land & finish our homeschooling years in this HUGE, massive, full of Texas heart city💙🌅 💙
Insects on the Juruena River love city grown blood. The Rikbaktsa warriors who were our companions never seemed to get bitten…
Insetos no Rio Juruena amam sangue da cidade. Parecia que os guerreiros Rikbaktsa que eram nossos companheiros nunca eram picados ...
#starttocanitrail : Always be well prepared going on a canitrail. This means not only you, but also your dog will need to drink and maybe eat along the way. Depending on the weather you will also want to be sure there is water 💦 for your dog to cool down in. So bring the right gear: a water pack, a collapsible drinking bowl, first aid kit and your phone 📱 (fully charged). Trailing in the winter requires even more gear, but maybe that’s one for later. And explore your trail on map 🗺 before you leave. Next: Enjoy the adventure! •••• •••• •••• #canitrail#canitrailing#trailrunning#trailrunner#hitthetrails
This was the sermon at church today.. And I completely believe.. 🙏🏼❤️
Faith is a journey, it’s an adventure. Enjoy it.. it’s okay to not know the outcome or where your goin.. Enjoy the ride. Let this mold who you are.. don’t try to control everything.. let God help mold you who you were meant to be.. .
Open your mind and your heart to the possibilities.❤️❤️
My boss later walked into the cooler where I was working; (he counts everything in there) I saw him but I couldn't thank him because he had no idea what he had done for me and he had no idea what was going on in my head for the last couple of days, so instead I wanted to give him a hug tonshow my gratitude, I looked at him and kinda struggled but asked him if he could give me a hug, I didn't expect for him to say yes or if he said yes I only expect him to give me a squeeze and let go in less the a second because I felt like maybe it would be akward, like, why is this girl asking me for a hug? But it was the complete opposite; he said "ofcourse!" And gave me a long warm hug (those type of bear hugs) and I realized how I only needed a sincere hug from someone who I respected and how sometimes we think the world is hard and there are many bad things in it and we stop realizing that there are these billion little things that we don't notice and how essential it is for us to smile and be grateful for everything and everyone that surround us and how sometimes we just need a little time to charge our batteries and keep going.

I finally composed my self and started walking towards the first floor only to find that all the walls had little papers as well and on the stairs there is a wall that is a gigantic mirro; the whole mirror was covered with papers and tiny images that said things like "you can do it" "sprinkle happiness like it's confetti" "you are beautiful" where I stopped, stood for about 3 minutes ran to the bathroom and cried for about another 20 minutes. (This was about 4 am so no one could hear me)
That day at work all I could think of was what a coincidence that on this particular day I came to find all these beautiful messages of positivity and happiness hitting me like a bullet in the back of the head; all day I meditated about it did not sleep and whent to work.
The next day all the papers disappeared, the paper on my locker was gone but everything in the mirror stayed it was like destiny telling me that I will be ok; I started working untill my boss came to work, I usually go say hi and pop a little joke, I can't tell you what we were talking about because I completely forgot but whatever it was he said "God sends the toughest battles to his toughest soldiers because he knows you can take them" now, I am not religious at all, I don't believe in god (please don't bash me with religious comments) but what he said without him even knowing how I felt, was all I needed to hear, I left and cotinued working because this time i was not going to allow myself to drop another tear.
Third part on the next post, I know it's long I'm sorry.
I don't usually get wordy on Instagram as I like to keep to myself in social media (except youtube) but I felt like IG could use this for anyone going through the same thing.
The last two weeks have been tough; emotionally and mentally i had so many things going on in my head and body. I was keeping them all inside because I didn't want to worry anyone not realizing that i was pushing away everyone and I am not a very good liar.
On the day that I felt the worse, I felt tired, I couldn't move, I couldn't even fake a smile! There was a fatigue inside my heart and my mind that even I found it odd but I could not fight it. I was letting it take me and pull me further. I woke up at 2 am from a nightmare where I was drowning only to wake up and still feel like i was drowning.
Since I woke up really early I got to work really early; I am usually stoked to go to work, see everyone, cook something funny so everyone complains and listen to everyone's crazy jokes.
That morning I walked slowly as I walked near the door a smell hit me, it was the same smell of trash that I smell everyday (I was walking next to the trash compressor) and it was the repulsive smell i had ever smelt, I ran to the door to go in as fast as I could, when I opened the door the fan turned on and just blew air on my face and hair; ( here is hot so I usually open the door and stay under it for some fresh air) it felt like the fan was the loudest thing I had ever heard.
I walked up the stairs towards the second floor and as I walked I only looked at the floor so I didn't notice the walls; when I got to the locker area i looked up to notice every piece of wall covered in papers so colorful, so beautiful that I was completely shocked.
I made my way to my locker to find this paper taped to it, I read it about 50 times (or more) I put my things inside my locker went to the bathroom and cried my eyes out for about 30 minutes
Obligatory tourist selfie... After several miles of hiking up and down hills & after visiting 3 sides of the Golden Gate Bridge, the fog had finally lifted enough for a clear pic. #enjoytheadventure#lifelongconnection
Oasis RV resort was really Amazing! 🏝 We planned on staying over a month, then on to visit family in Az but having not been in the desert heat in a year, we literally could not physically take it. This is the first time in our RV journey that we have all been sick. It was miserable.. praise the Lord we tested neg for strep but realized that we can not stay in the desert anymore. On our way back to Texas y’all 💙🙏🏼
You can’t change the past, it’s already behind you. You can start where you are and create your future - it’s still ahead of you. ~
What possibilities are you creating and what actions are you taking to accomplish them?
Good luck with starting from where you are today! ✈️
Sunsets make for best way to end a day of hard work! Or even a day off adventure!
Sunsets 🌄seem to always remind people to slow down and enjoy things!
Start today with a sunset attitude! 🌞
Take the time to enjoy the little things thru-out the day! Don't rush from task to task 📝without enjoying it. 👃 smell the roses🌹 for in a few months many of our flowers will no longer be in bloom! Enjoy them while you can.
I have been reflecting a lot the last couple of days about the energy I take in, where I place my power and what I want my life to be. Then I saw this quote and it spoke to me...my life is on the most amazing new adventure, and I just want to take in all of that positive energy, and focus my time on how that can help me grow as a person, and spend less time sitting in negative energy. When we give our power to the negativity, we aren’t giving ourselves the opportunity for connection and growth. Just a little Monday motivation for you 😉 #goodenergy#selfgrowth#enjoytheadventure#connectandgrow#learnfromothers
O Monumento aos 18 do Forte, do escultor Mauricio Bentes, é impressionante! Seus detalhes são dignos de muito tempo de contemplação e a cada minuto encontra-se algo novo e significativo. A bandeira rasgada foi o que mais me deixou pensativa e incomodada, visto que é bastante atual devido a situação do nosso país. 🇧🇷 Detalhe é que o local onde o monumento se encontra leva o nome de Praça dos Girassóis, mas não há nenhum por lá. Assim se chama pois no início da construção de Palmas, está área era um grande campo destas lindas flores, que foi "aterrado" pra construção da praça. Acho linda a praça, mas acho péssima a maneira que os girassóis foram exterminados pra que esta fosse construída. 🌻 #pracadosgirassois#palmas#tocantins#minitrip#feriado#fimdesemana#deboraeomundo#depoisdos30#mulheresqueviajamsozinhas#minasqueviajam#travelblogger#livelife#enjoytheadventure
