How can you change what you think is a fundamental inner trait you acquired at a very young age?
▫️ I found myself talking with my beautiful lil sis about this last night, debating on weather you CAN change or CANNOT change your personality
▫️ Of course we are not talking about gaining kindness and compassion, but much deeper patterns
▫️ Our brains are excellent pattern-matchers and reward us for using this very helpful skill. Repetition creates a pattern, which consequently and naturally grabs our attention at first and then creates the comfort of familiarity
▫️ It is the « vital » thing to do for your brain, as it has seen this before, and survived by making you act this way
▫️ It is an unconscious mechanism, but it is useful for everyday actions, as brushing your teeth without repeating « left, right, front, back »
▫️ For other things as anger triggers, getting back in the same insane loops, choosing the same partner over and over (wink to someone in particular), it is not useful and there are ways to break it
▫️ The first thing is to notice it. This may take meditation or writing to discover the similarities or « trigger »
▫️ Then consciously decide to act as you would see yourself acting if you were the best version of yourself
▫️ Follow through with it
▫️ Reward yourself with positive thinking and self gratification (Pavlovian technique)
▫️ Repeat enough for this to become your new pattern
▫️ This of course seem very complicated at first, but even though they are small steps, it will bring an amazing change in your life, as for building self confidence and living a more conscious life
▫️ Huge kiss to my little sis @tess_xthompson whom I already miss ❤️❤️❤️
▫️ Good day everyone!!!
We had one day of rest in Portland before we hit the road again. This time we were headed to Crater Lake. 🌄
I was not prepared for how large this lake was or how beautiful the blues were. It is truly breath-taking. 🌄
This is the deepest lake in the US at 1949 ft. and is fed only by snowmelt and precipitation. It has no pollutants, so the water clarity can be anywhere from 80-115 ft. The caldera is also huge at 6 mi. long and 5 mi. wide. Believe me when I say...it's big. 🌄
Pictures don't even do it justice. If you are planning a trip to Oregon or Northern California, be sure this is on your list. It's beautiful! 🌄

Climb these hills
I'm reaching for the heights
And chasing all the lights that shine
And when they let you down
You'll get up off the ground
'Cause morning rolls around
And it's another day of sun☀️ #california
It's been a rainy few days in Edmonton. There's something so calming about taking a drive in the rain. This was taken just outside Edmonton, by the military base, I couldn't help but stop to take a picture of this rainbow. 🇨🇦🦄🌈
