Sometimes you realize you’re in love after saying goodbye. As the months roll by, your heart aches and yearns to see your love again. When the pain becomes too great, you finally surrender, book a flight and tell your love that you’re coming back ❤❤❤. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This love that I’m speaking of isn’t for a person, it’s for a community of people. They are a community of rock climbers who flock to Green Climber’s Home each year to train hard and party even harder. Never have I ever experienced such a unique traveling and rock climbing trip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love and missed this place so much that I had to return for my second time this year. I just arrived yesterday and will be here until the end of the month! Let’s go climb! See you soon @rockraft and @jaimeclimbergirl !!! 🙌
Traveling through Macau, you will see undeniable Portuguese influence in the architecture, culture, and cuisine. This is largely due to the fact that Macau was a Portugal colony from 1887-1999! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pictured here are the Ruins of St. Paul, a 17th century church dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As 1999 is relatively recent, Portuguese is still one of the official languages of Macau and you can see it on signs across island. However, few Macanese can still speak Portuguese and mostly speak Cantonese.
how odd it is picking a photo for social media to pair with a conversation about suicide. ugh.
when you’re from the small town of frederick, colorado, this week is suicide awareness week. one of my closest childhood friends died by suicide in 2012, followed by a domino effect of young men who also died by suicide. yeah - this week is particularly rough on social media for a lot of people
anyways. i’m tired of having the same performative conversations every year, usually including some terrible statistics & the suicide hotline number.
that strategy doesn’t work, it isn’t enough.
let’s talk about medication. who has access to medication that is safe for them? who has access to therapy, to non-discriminatory doctors and wellness professionals? let’s talk about healthcare. let’s talk about self-harm, addiction, and loneliness. let’s talk about trauma, sexual assault, healing. let’s commit to destigmatize seeking help. it took me over five years to admit that i needed help, to console with my partner, my mom, and my doctor about my mental health. it was hard. i cancelled my doctors appointment twice before actually going.
i don’t want love & light. i want us to commit to the destigmatization of mental health and suicidal ideation, while expanding access to treatment for everyone.
the passing of Jordan McMullen in 2012 & Xavier Lindburg in 2014 completely changed my life, and i owe it to them to talk openly about how we can actually help people who are struggling to find a reason
É incrível como às vezes a gente pode se sentir parte da família mesmo tão longe de casa, né? Essa semana visitando minha irmã em seu nem-tão-novo-assim lar me rendeu uma nova família dinamarquesa. Dois jantares com a família do namorado dela foram suficientes para me sentir querida e já parte da família. Jantamos em uma mesa com mais de vinte pessoas celebrando o dia de São Martin, comendo pato assado por causa de uma lenda um pouco esquisita que fala sobre gansos. Brindamos com schnapps. Bebemos cerveja de natal (isso existe!). Rimos, falamos sobre futuro. O que eu não entendia quando pequena ficou mais evidente agora: família não é algo imutável. É sobre abraçar quem chega e se sentir parte de um grupo que se quer bem. E sempre guardar no peito quem se foi. É sobre criar novas tradições, e comer pato em homenagem ao ganso. Depois que minha avó morreu sentia que um pedacinho da minha historia havia morrido também. Mas agora sei que esse era um falso sentimento. Minha avó está vivinha em cada lembrança. Ela existe toda vez que eu procuro um aconchego nos meus pensamentos. Agora, a parte italiana que um dia se juntou à brasileira compartilha jantares animados com a parte dinamarquesa e a alemã. E de pouquinho em pouquinho a gente vai formando uma família que mais se parece uma colcha de retalhos, com partes tão diferentes mas que se completam mesmo assim. A propósito, esses sanduichinhos da foto são Smørrebrød, prato típico dinamarquês que é uma delícia! ❣️
All that matters are the simple things ❤ Had the best weekend at Elfin Lakes Hut with many new friends, incredible nature but mostly importantly a sense of presence without distractions, simply being & entertaining ourselves with play doh 😄 #thebest#womenwhoexplore#chasingsunrise#outdooradventure
Outside, the work is satisfying. // Outside, the elements remind you of what’s real. // Outside, the simplicity of life is as complex as it ever should be. // Outside, my insides recognize it instantly. // Outside, is living. #fitforreallife
from San Francisco ☕️ taken while driving through town. The weather was amazing. I wish I could bundle up all the time. The architecture and city layout was crazy. I held my breath driving through the streets 🙃
It is significantly warmer when you are in downtown Gatlinburg than when you are on top of the Smoky Mountains. People tend to forget that! The day we took this picture it was 65+ degrees in Gburg and 38 (and dropping) on top of Clingman’s Dome. The wind was 100+ miles per hour and I was two seconds from having all my fingers fall off from frost bite- ok I’m being dramatic BUT IT WAS CRAZY WINDY/COLD up there.

From the red rock deserts with tucked away slot canyons and twisted rock formations to the jagged, white-capped mountain passes, Utah’s incredibly dynamic landscape has kept me in awe since my very first time here. And that’s why I always come back. #naturesplayground#exploreeverything
Spent my Saturday learning from the wonderful @cjdimmock 💖👌 .
Had such a blast! Also got to meet some amazing women who also attended the event. Can't wait to attend more workshops! 😍 join me? 💃
This beautiful lake was inaccessible while we were visiting due to current damages in the area from the Carr Fire. I can’t help but think about the wildfires going on now in both Northern and Southern California. Y’all stay vigilant and safe.
Sometimes we meet the best of our friends in the most random times and places. I met this lovely friend of mine when we were lining up to get into a club 😂 we had a common friend, (@ttoyasmall )she introduced us and boom! Here we are today 😘 Just wanted to let you know I love and appreciate you merrr merrrss💖 .
Tell me how you and your best friends met? I'd love to know in the comments 😊
Once you connect with an awakened woman, understand that she will not entertain your ego, nor play on lower vibrational frequencies with you. This means you must either rise up and meet her where she is, or be prepared to vibrate out of her experience altogether. None of it is personal, all of it is vibrational. Level up or vibrate out. She does not mind either way 😉 (this goes for both women and men) .
Be so so careful about who you choose to vibe with. Protect your energy. After all, you have worked so hard to get it to where it is today 💖 Good morning friends! 🤗 have a blessed day!
this hike didn't have one of the most beautiful views we've seen, but it was a pretty interesting hike and very different than our previous ones...this photo was taken only half way up...the next half was pretty intense, not the hike itself but the environment! it was so windy that day! it felt like hurricane winds were trying to blow us off the cliff the whole next half...people were crouching on the ground and holding on for life at some points! it literally felt like at any moment you were going to get picked up by the wind and fly off the cliffs...but we made it! and it always feels so amazing to conquer uncomfortable situations together...
