✴What are you doing?Whatever makes me happy✴
Πολλοί με ρωτάνε τι κάνω, πως περνάω στο χωριό.
Η απάντηση μου απλή: κάνω ότι με κάνει να χαμογελάω και να νιώθω ευτυχισμένη.😊
Και η επαφή με την φύση και η πεζοπορία στο βουνό είναι ένα από τα πράγματα που με "γεμίζουν"🏔
Εσάς τι σας κάνει να χαμογελάτε και να νιώθετε όμορφα;😃
Yesterday was a very special day for me. Josh and I did our first bit of back country skiing!! Thimble Peak in Kirkwood will forever hold a special place in my heart.
We’ve always been a bit of adventure junkies, white water rafting the Zambezi river, Devils Pool in Zimbabwe, we love tree skiing, etc. But there’s something about looking down steep pitches that’s always unnerved me. Physically I know I can tackle it. But I have this unfounded anxiety that stems from not being able to feel my boundaries when staring down a steep sheet of complete whiteness - and like if I fall, I may just never stop tumbling down the mountain. (May just be me 😅)
BUT with a lot of deep breaths and my good luck charm - singing Brittney Spears “Hit Me Baby One More time” - on repeat in my head, (idk it calms me down 😂) I told those anxieties that they weren’t going to make my decisions for me. And just like I knew it would be... IT WAS AWESOME!! So so so fun being able to make our own lines!!!! And what an accomplished feeling you have at the end.
I wish it was as simple as tackling your anxieties once and them forever disappearing - but it’s a daily process of faith and choosing your courage over those fears that creep into your mind. Day by day, little by little.
So cheers to many more of these off piste adventures in the future, Brittney Spears for saving me more than once, and continuing to push ourselves mentally and physically to be better athletes and skiers.
I'm reminded to reminisce or I would be remissed to miss the bliss my state of mind was in within the moment in another state out there outside the side within the walls with no boundaries which bound that which once was found but not unfounded yet confounded to the width of my confines here yet ere I snap a shot of the peering light I'm suddenly consumed in a snap by a shot appearing right before my eye but not of that into the site nor that of the metaphorical sight aye but of anothers plight in the literal sense in the real world trying to see the light across the metaphorical and literal wall and realize that which we take for granted with our real eyes in real time and then upon our digital images and then later on social media for the masses with ease of access to assess in excess and imagine what it would be like to be in that moment but I digress for some with less will never see that light so appreciate more with what is before you before you see it no more but only in the mind's eye.

That's how I feel at times when hiking, the concept of is simply not thought of or of importance. That being just out there in a place you may have never known is more than enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
