Day 11 - Ten Years Ago #decemberreflections2019 ❤️ Took me awhile to post this picture of my son and I ten years ago - my how we have changed. ❤️❤️❤️ At first I looked at this picture and I teared up - this coming from the insecure part of me that is not pleased with my weight and how it is effecting my health and energy ... but then I stopped to reflect. ❤️❤️❤️ For isn’t that what we are suppose to do with these December Reflections? 😘❤️❤️❤️ Yes - this younger version of me she was a lot thinner ... but was she “better” than the ten years older version of me? ❤️❤️❤️ No I know this for a fact. ❤️❤️❤️ For while in this picture I look happy - of course I would - taking a picture with one of my favourite people in the world - my son - on one of my favourite days of the year - his birthday. And yet this woman was far from being happy - mentally, soulfully or in spirit - not at all content. ❤️❤️❤️ She was alone - she felt a drift in life - no clear purpose, just living in the moment and just waiting for the next moment to come. ❤️❤️❤️ And while filling her life with people - the more she did the more alone she felt. Lost in so many ways. ❤️❤️❤️ I’ve come a long way baby 🤔😘 For yes I will definitely work on my weight and health - but my growth in spirit & life experience, make many more meaningful memories. I am excited to look forward to the next ten years and what it may hold. ❤️❤️❤️ More adventure
More amazingly good moments
More relationship goals met
More getting to know me and enjoying more out of everyday life. ❤️❤️❤️ Forward I go 🥰❤️❤️❤️ #reflect#selfcare#decemberreflections2019st#grow#bodymindspirit#enjoylife#live#adventureawaits
Can you die of chronic boredom? 😅 man I have been struggling to just find anything to do that excites me. So far hiking in the mountains is the only time I don't feel like a zombie, or a NPC. I need some excitement in my life, because another winter of Ohio seasonal depression is gonna be rough otherwise 😂
So I pulled into the covered garage at the mall and totally forgot I have a Yakima cargo box. What's that noise? 😂 My second time doing that and hopefully my last. First time I did it up in Whistler.
Do you take your cargo box thru the car wash? Curious.
¿Te das espacio para darte vacaciones durante tus vacaciones?
Creo que muchas personas al salir de viaje lo hacen con todo planificado: horarios a respetar, lugares pre seleccionados que visitar, entre otros mil detalles ¿Qué podría resultar de esto? Que termines aburrido de levantarte temprano adicionando que debes gastar energía extra para abrirte camino entre cientos de turistas para lograr tomarte una foto en el sitio que tanto anhelaste visitar. Seguramente en pocos días sólo desearías poder sentarse y disfrutar del día sin correr o tal vez sin hacer nada. ¿Te atreverías a darte ese tiempo libre?
Yo me animé y fue la mejor decisión que tomé!
Sólo me levanté y me auto proclamé ¨out of service¨ no más alarmas, no más lugares pre seleccionados. Conversé con un local quien me recomendó un par de sitios a los que podría fácilmente llegar. Miré un par de fotos en internet y tomé la decisión. Esa misma noche me embarque en un tren que en 12 horas me llevaría a este lugar al que sólo lo conocía por dos o tres fotografías, sin siquiera una reserva de hotel. ¿Que conseguí con este ¨atrevimiento¨? Aparte de disfrutar de una hermosa playa de agua turquesa y estar rodeadas por cocos y palmeras.. pude conocer mi reacción ante lo inesperado, saber controlar las ansias de no saber a dónde llegaría o dónde dormiría, confiar en mis instintos y poder resolver rápidamente situaciones no planeadas. ¿Miedo? creo que nunca lo sentí, pero me permití sentir otras emociones que no me regalaría en un día regular. #vietnam#discovervietnam#vietnamtrip#shetravels#sheisnotlost#adventureawaits

COMMUNITY. Defined as individuals living in the same place or having particular characteristics in common, as much as a people of a specific location considered collectively, especially in the context of social values and responsibilities: Society.
Ecologically speaking, a community is viewed as a group of interdependent plants or animals growing or living together in natural conditions or occupying a designated habitat. When done well, the community becomes a living, breathing organism in its own right.
Humans were created with such an overwhelming inbuilt desire for interaction with one another, that blinded by fear of rejection, we may fail to recognise that our choices of companion can be either the making or the breaking of us. .
So strong is our need to belong, that if we are not comfortable in our own company, confident in our abilities independent of the input of others and intentional in setting boundaries which preserve and protect our sense of self worth, we are at risk of manipulation by others to further their own means at our expense. .
When we each understand that we are enough, just as we are and that we have as much right to respectfully take up space as the next person, to speak up, speak out and to bring our very own unique set of gifts, talents and attributes to the table - that is the foundation upon which healthy community of any kind, relationship by relationship, is formed. .
In time, we will find that we are no longer afraid to choose purpose over popularity or calling over comfort, for the beauty of establishing a safe and loving community is that it equips, empowers and emboldens. It accepts, imperfections and all. It gives us wings and sets us free. .

Someone said to me the other day that I was the busiest backpacker that they’ve ever met. •
And it’s true - Unless you’re doing the same activities as me, I’m a pretty hard person to catch 🐠 •
At first this made me feel really bad, almost as if I was letting them down because I was so “busy”. “Busy” as a word has such a negative connotation too - it often means you’re tired, stressed, overwhelmed. •
But the busy that is my life (right now at least) is sense of fullness. I legit try to squeeze the most out of every single day, because I don’t want to waste a second. I’ve probably only slept in once this whole trip because a 6am surf makes me jump out of bed, spending my day cafe hopping whilst web designing lights me up and playing music at night fills my soul. •
It’s definitely not for everyone and yes sometimes I need to have days where I don’t talk to anyone and hide away with a book but at the moment is suits me and makes me so excited to live every day. •
So fuck feeling bad about being busy. As long as you are making time for yourself, the people you love and the things that bring you joy, then you’re doing life right.
It felt so good to get outside today! ☀️•
We haven’t been out and about in nature as much as we like lately, so today was long overdue! Even though our morning didn’t start off like we expected (we drove about 30 miles to the closest Home Depot to buy a dehumidifier and when we got there it wasn’t actually in stock, even though we spoke with an associate prior to leaving 🤦🏼♀️), our moods were significantly lifted once we got outside. •
The trails around this state park are super easy but scenic and worth checking out. We especially enjoyed the cave trail. We even saw a group of deer in the woods while we were hiking!•
After our hike and a quick bike ride, we settled in around the fire with our books for a few hours. We haven’t been able to make a fire at our campsite in quite a while so we were pretty pumped for that.•
For dinner we made some BOMB quesadillas on the fire pit grill (see our story for Caleb’s quesadilla dance 😂). We will absolutely be making these again! They were super easy because I made the chicken in the crock pot while we were out enjoying our day, so all we had to do was heat up the beans, assemble the quesadilla, throw it on the grill and voila!•
Anybody have any good campfire meals/recipes they want to share? As much as we love eating out, we also really enjoy cooking at camp!

International Mountain Day ⛰💚
Este año me considero una auténtica privilegiada por haber tenido durante un día estas vistas, no solo por las montañas que es algo de otro mundo sino por tener frente a mi una maravilla mundial como Machu Picchu.
Digo de este año pero perfectamente puedo decir que ha sido de lo mejor que he visto en mi vida 🤩
El verde no es un placer, es una necesidad y más como está el mundo... Todo un lujo respirar aire limpio 🙏🏽
