The drive back to Utah and "normal life" has been kind of emotionally jarring for me. The realization that I grew and changed a lot while I was in Alaska is setting in. It's one thing to set out to learn to love yourself, grow, and become someone new in the moment.... and then another to realize that you are possibly going back to a life that is no longer meant for you. I've done so much driving in silence, trying to imagine how I've changed will effect my friends or past decisions I've made. Every once in a while I need to stop and bring myself back to the things I've been practicing all summer.
1) I can not control everything
2) there are people who won't like me
3) those are not bad things
And most importantly
4) my worth is not determined by the judgements or actions of others.
So here I am being in the moment and calming my mind because its my choice to value myself and let joy into my life.
Was taken the last day of #AdventureAugust#pursuitlife
This is wild! It's interesting to think about the salmon we grill during the summer. I wonder how many people actually know what they look like?
There have been momma bear sightings so my #AdventureAugust was a short walk to see the fish, and thats ok.
This adventure, that started with some chitchat in a server alley, has taught me so much about myself. Self love, care, self confidence and all of the love starts within you.💕
This caption has nothing to do with this neat photo I got in Denali but oh well. 😊
