“You will never influence the world by being just like it.”
I love this quote.
Instagram makes it easy to want to be like someone else, do what others are doing, say what others are saying.
But, I find so much inspiration and beauty in people that are simply being themselves.
I love when I scroll and see a photo that shows someone’s life, someone’s creativity, someone’s true self.
I love when I read a caption that is real and vulnerable, and is something from that persons heart.
I am much more influenced by people who stand out than those that blend in.
Why be like the world, when you can be YOU?
God didn’t create us to all be the same, act the same...
We all have our own purpose.
We all have our own unique light to shine.
We all have an impact we can make in our own way.
Give yourself the chance to transform and grow yourself, versus conforming and not letting the world get a look at what YOU can do and who YOU are.
Out west, we planned this trip last year and I finally got to move out here and take this trip with the coolest group of guys. @gzorgz did an incredible job making this video!! Moving out here has put a permanent smile on my face. You feel small out west, the views are never ending, the people are so chill what else could you ask for? from now on I’m striving to give you guys an emotional side to everything I create and hopefully it’s motivation to get outside your comfort zone. Here’s to the best summer ever, some insane times with the boys and a great future ahead of us 🌹🌹
Because it's 100% in the moment. 💯There's nothing that can be carried over from yesterday - I can't procrastinate dishes or packing up my tent. I set a goal at the beginning of the day and whether that's 6 miles or 16 miles - it gets done and it's my single minded task for the day. At the end, I'm exhausted. With just enough time to connect and have a great conversation, watch the sunset/sunrise, nourish my hungry body with fuel for tomorrow, look up into the stars and be humbled - then sleep hard. 😴🏕Everyone has to do all of these things themselves, the emotion of guilt is eliminated - its training my mind not to default to guilt. It's constantly realizing how strong I am and how much I can do - and on days that I feel like I haven't done much I can look directly at the other days or the mountain I just summited and realize exactly how much I did do. Or even on a zero, there is so much respect for Self and respect for Body for everything it has done and will do. It's Orion always encouraging me along and never judging. It's the strength building in my confidence when I realize that I can be 100% self sufficient. It's seeing that you're all going through some suck but then you all get to see the AMAZING rewards of nature. 🐍 It's seeing a snake and having the sympathetic nervous system flip the switch and pump cortisol and adrenaline through the body then it's walking away from the snake, leaving it behind and letting it go. It's not carrying the snake with you for the week until you convince yourself you can be done with it. 🙅🏼It's stress how nature intended it. It's the reset to the nervous system. It's getting life back. 💫 It's un-plugging from the screen but plugging into our natural circadian rhythms. 🌄 It's waking up to the sunrise and not caring about the time. It's drinking coffee while watching natures morning news, instead of the craziness going on in another place. It's being 100% in the moment and enjoying each little moment. Because even the ones that suck will too pass & more amazingness will follow. The sun will ALWAYS rise- even when it's behind the clouds - it's still there SHINING on ☀️ It's shifting from PTSD ➡️ Post Traumatic Growth
We can’t stop smiling with @justinsorbo here! We had another great day — hiked to a secret remote beach and camped out! 😬

The wheels have been spinning lately and I've come to realize that spending 95% of my life in my room editing is absolute shieeeet. Time to pave way for more collaborations. Playing with some spicy ideas || @aleena.aleksandra @lkurtzy 🔥🔥
