I AM WORTHY OF ALL THE GREATNESS AND LOVE IN WORLD. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year has been nothing short of unusual for me. But I can say that it has put so many things into perspective for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #1 You can’t base your present self on your past self. Just because you handled situations in the past in an unhealthy way doesn’t mean that the present you is going to do the same. Why? Because YOU’RE not the same! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #2 You are allowed to FEEL. Acknowledge them, work through them, and don’t hide from them. Let’s be real, we are human, not perfect manicured robots . Humans are emotional beings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #3 Be true to yourself. If you say you’re going to do it, then F-ING do it! Stop lying to yourself and creating bad habits. It only creates a domino effect with all the other things in your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #4 Manifest what you want, because you are worthy of all the great things in life. And make sure what you want is aligned with the truest version of yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How has 2020 treated you? Have you learned anything new? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Did you know there are more than 2,000 miles of singletrack trails winding through SW Idaho?
Put your downhill skills to the test through mountains and meadows, switchbacks and narrow canyons. Oh yeah, and the views that accompany this activity are totally worth it!
Check out our Mountain Biking Guide for full details.
Mesa Falls! This jewel is located about an hour south of the Yellowstone west entrance. Idaho never disappoints.

Stanimal has been battling arthritis in his leg for about a year now, so backpacking trips don’t come as often as he’d like. He was definitely psyched to finally visit the place he was named after. Also psyched his leg seemed to do very well!
camping off the grid used to make this mama pretty nervous ... i was admittedly anxious about being without cell service for so long, running into large critters 🐻 and not having other humans around if we need them for anything ... I have since grown to LOVE the solitude and crave the time to be out in nature, just the four of us 💫💛🌎🌲
we would love to hear what you all think about #boondocking 🚐 do you love it as much as we do??

This summer has been more about kayaking than backpacking and mountain time and while I feel a little guilty about it, I’ve loved spending so much time on the river and seeing my kayaking skills progress. It’s been hard trying to balance two things I love so much and at times I’ve felt very one dimensional — as if kayaking was the only thing I could talk about or think about because it’s all that I was doing for several months.
The truth is, I intentionally forsake my beloved mountains this summer for the river in order to stop sucking at kayaking. I was sick of feeling afraid of the river, doubting myself and swimming on stuff I knew I could either paddle through or should be able to roll up in. I lost my roll so many times in April, May and June and then worked hard to get it back. Then there were eddy lines and now there are holes. Every day was different — there were wins, losses of dignity and confidence, struggles and some serious mental growth as I began to get more comfortable remaining calm while upside down and under water in large rapids.
There were a couple times I almost cried from frustration and one day I did cry from fear after a friend got stuck in a bad spot and scared the pants off both of us. But I kept coming back. All I could hear was @nicoletteroberts__ ‘s voice telling me that days on the water are the only thing that matter when progressing and paddling day after day after day was the best way to get better.
I think this has by far been the most challenging thing I’ve ever done mentally and emotionally. I am the first to admit I did EMDR with my therapist last year after a few bad swims and hitting me head very hard on a rock. But the resilience I feel now is incredible. If I could do that and overcome my fears, trust my body and keep coming back for more, what else am I capable of?
I’ll get back to the mountains soon but my hiatus from them was intentional and necessary. It’s a good reminder that we can take breaks to grow in other ways and still come back to the things we love as stronger versions of ourselves.
I’ve been thinking a lot about comfortability. How I don’t like it. I feel more alive when I am uncomfortable. For certain. Maybe too much.

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world... and there’s still gonna be somebody who hates peaches. 🍑
Just a reminder that you won’t ever be able to please everyone, so all you can do is focus on being the best version of yourself and remember that God thinks you’re AMAZING. 🤗

National Parks are an amazing gift full of splendor. But I’ll tell you, after a week navigating popular sites in the midst of a pandemic, I was ready for a break from all the excitement. I’m content to sit at a campfire in the forest with my dog and listen to the squirrels and birds for a few days.
