You just don’t get the views on some mountain days and that’s fine with me ... don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t love that moment when you reach the summit and can see for miles but some days it’s just not on the cards.
We all met through a Facebook group and over the years have become great friends. We started the day in Ogwen Valley car park; there were hugs, Billy kisses and quick checks on how we were all doing before setting off.
We got battered! The wind, hale and rain just didn’t let up ... but the other thing that continued all day was the laughter and jokes! No one gets left behind on our walks, the pace is altered so that everyone feels part of the group and can join in the conversation ... that’s a massive thing for me; I hate it when I hear that someone hasn’t gone on a walk because they felt conscious about being at the back and slowing the group up.
We made it to the summit for lunch and hunkered down in the shelter for some protection ... the laughter and leg pulling continued. Billy did his usual trick of checking what everyone had in their lunchboxes incase theirs was better than his, Eddie genuinely believed he’d get away with not sharing his pasty! 😉
Then away we went to continue our day off the mountain. There were trips, slips and falls which as soon as the group realised the person wasn’t hurt then it was ok to laugh at them 😂.
We had a first today guys and walked through a haze of weed smoke from a couple of other walkers. Floating down the last few hundred metres we headed to Siabod cafe where if you’ve been you’ll know you’re always given a warm welcome and if Nicks on duty a bit of friendly abuse 😜.
We had no views, we got soaked, we got knocked over in the wind and I definitely lost a layer of skin off my face ... but I’d be back there to do it all again because when your friends are this good, the weather doesn’t really matter ❤️
You can be a leader and talk about politics openly
You can be a leader and be highly sexual and even better, not hide it
You can be a leader and be a total hot mess sometimes
You can be a leader and still doubt yourself
You can be a leader and who has mentors and teachers who you credit for where you’re at
You can be a leader regardless of who you love, fuck, marry, hang with, etc
You can be a leader because you decide you’re worthy and that you desire it.
Stop getting it twisted that there’s some specific way leadership is supposed to look.
If anything is obvious, people are done with leaders who are inauthentic and don’t take a stand
People want to know YOU
They want to know what you deeply believe in and will take a stand for
It’s not about leading everyone.
It’s about leading your people.
And you can’t do this when you’re being a generic boring ass wet noodle.
So pour some glitter on those tits, scream loudly about hate, racism and injustice, and tell us who the fuck you are and why you’re here.
Drop an emoji if you agree! 💦💕

When your Oma and Opa finally arrive through the gate. The kids were starting to get worried and wondering why they hadn’t come out yet, and right at that moment...boom. Like magic. The kids (and Theo and I) are super excited to have my parents here for the holidays. 🤗
