My little #wcw post goes out to Jesse today. Jk. But really. I do love you. Being 20 is both fun and hard. It’s also hard to live with a bossy sister for an entire summer but he survived living with me for two months. And hopefully he still likes me. But I’m proud of him 👌🏼 and Jess, despite finding your hair everywhere, I do miss you, your free spirit, adventures and stories, our nightly conversations and sassy comebacks. If anyone can be savage, it’s the both of us being together in the same room. Best of luck in continuing your education, learning and growing, following your passion, mastering both music and coffee...and basically figuring out the adult life 💕 💪🏼 and, of course, budgeting. Ha!
Well another year in the books 26🎉. Blessed to have had another year of life and to be able to have traveled to see a state on my most wanted travels list. If do decide to leave California. There is only one state I will be living in. Always have wanted to see pikes peak after watching the races up hill ie evasive frs etc. it’s truly as beautiful as it is scary. Water rafting was super awesome even though I can’t swim. Only love once decided to jump off a large rock into the water wish I had it on video. 08/10/2018-08/14-2018✌️more #photography from #colorado coming. #pikespeak#waterrafting#outdoors#adventure
Oh! I found this VW I.D. Pikes peak Elektro car thingy! It broke the existing record on this legendary hillclimb by a fair margin too! Because it doesn’t loose power when the air gets thinner further up in the mountains. I think the front is quite ugly but I’ll give it credit for it’s mighty wang and splitter!
We are having our Grip Art contest again. $20 gets you entered. You get a fresh sheet and about a month to get your art done and brought back to the park. All the entries will be displayed for a week and the people will pick the winner. The winner gets a prize pack with deck and monthly pass. The top 3 will be displayed on the wall permanently. Tag some local artists. #sk8cos#coloradosprings#pikespeak#southerncolorado#719#skate#art#griptapeart
THE BRITS ARE COMING!!! Well, just one and he’s here for the Pikes Peak Ascent. Showing @faithhopelove11313 around Manitou Springs and proving that Pikes Peak doesn’t look all that difficult. 🙄 ⛰
The Pikes Peak Ascent & Marathon will be taking place Aug 18 and 19. As we are also moving full steam ahead on the new Summit House construction, there will be limited parking at the top. We ask that anyone not running or volunteering in these events refrain from traveling to the summit that weekend. More information will be coming at http://www.pikespeakmarathon.org.

So here's that video I mentioned earlier. This video is absolutely unrehearsed, and uncut aside from me trimming to fit IG. I cannot explain how or why I found this, but I must have needed to find it. It totally set in stone EVERYTHING I've just experienced in the past few days. Yes I intended on that pun 😁
If you have been following along with me the past few weeks/days, first off thank you and an even bigger THANK YOU to those who offered support, even if it was just to listen. 🤗
Anyway if you have been following then you know that somethings in my life have changed quite a bit. If you didn't know that, let me break it down:
1️⃣ - Left my corporate gym training job of $100k+ to build my own business and rebuild my life
2️⃣ - had to make some adjustments to some toxic relationships with others in my life
3️⃣ - I'm learning new things (like what to do now that I've done 1️⃣)
I've always felt that things happen for reasons, or that some things are meant to happen. I couldn't explain this event any other way. I had to first, be in Colorado today, then I had to decide to drive up to Pike's Peak, then I had to decide to go to this ONE SPOT OF ALL THE SPOTS I COULD HAVE GONE!!! if I wouldn't have decided to do all that, none of this would have been. I had my camera set up to take some pictures, as I was moving into position I noticed a rock that didn't seem like it should have been there. So I took a closer look and found what I found.
"Bee kind" it says. A play on words, but a clear message. Be kind. Not be Politically Correct, or a robot lizard, or whatever. Be kind. Kind means to have similar characteristic, so to be kind means to act in a way that is similar to others. If we all were more kind to everyone, it would bring about a culture of kindness. But kind alone has to be defined as well. Be on the lookout for tonight's final post about ORDER&CHAOS. This will be the last of a 3 part series on life/death, conscious and unconscious, order/chaos.
