Sometimes I just feel like this road - keep looking up and onwards. “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks” John Muir This morning a short 10km, Hike#2 of @52hikechallenge and, knocked off 1 challenge from the Adventure Series “the forest hike! “🌳
Striking 🥊 the balance ⚖️ between compassion 💙 and taking it easy ⚠️ on ourselves when we need 🤲🏼 it, but also pushing 🐺 ourselves to achieve 🏆and overcome ✅ challenges certainly isn’t 🤷🏽♀️ easy, but it’s a key 🔐 part of being an adult 👩🏽 and taking complete ownership 💥 of our lives 🖼 Today on the blog 💻 I’m sharing what I’ve learned about 📝 self-parenting and how it’s helped 🐝 me find 🔍balance in life 💫
This year has been both enlightening and exhausting in many ways. There are times when I think about the current state of humanity- both from an political and environmental standpoint- and it makes me feel discouraged and hopeless. Because I am only one person and there is only so much I can do to make it better. But there are also days where someone tells me my words or actions inspired them to: learn more about politics, quit using a straw, or pick up trash in their path. These people usually don’t know how much this means to me. It restores both my motivation to carry on and my faith in humanity.
Sometimes I hesitate to share my thoughts on this platform because I don’t want to create the perception that I’m coming from a self-righteous place. My goal is to educate, inform and use this platform as a tool to hold myself accountable in practicing what I preach. I have gotten feedback from people that I didn’t think even paid attention. You NEVER KNOW who you can touch with your words. We are all influencers so do more than exist. Let’s be better humans. ✨
Shoutout to the following humans for inspiring me to be a better person:

I am missing Lake Powell so much lately. Kayaking into hidden coves and setting up camp in new spots with no schedule for the next 3 nights was by far one of my favorite camping experiences.
