  • After some epic adventures up north last week, today was all about exploring my beautiful backyard again!⁣
⁣⁣
Spent the whole day trailblazing with @globalhobovictoria in wonderful Sooke Hills Wilderness Regional Park, only a 30 minute drive from Downtown Victoria. ⁣
⁣
Hike through the forest up to one of the hills and get rewarded with stunning views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. You may even get a glimpse of Victoria, like here from John Stick Peak ⛰ What's your favourite area to hike close to home?

  • Wadey Campground, Lake Revelstoke. 

I was fortunate to stumble onto this beautiful place last summer. Spent a full week in this paradise to end a 3 week solo camping adventure. 

This adventure was an over night decision sparked by an unexpected and difficult year on disability. 

Those close to me know 2018 was easily the best year of my life thus far. I started 2019 confident I had become the best version of myself. I was. 

Everything was perfect, I had finally found an untainted blissful peacefulness I never knew existed. Then one simple little mistake doing what I love the most resulted in me tearing my ACL and fracturing my femur and tibia. 

Now I can’t deny I have a very carefree, fuck it, shit happens attitude towards life that stems from a deeply simple belief. In my opinion the meaning to life is simply to enjoy the time we have with the people we love to the fullest extent without holding back. 

2019 fucked me up. 

Personal mental health is something I don’t like to talk about. Mostly because I’m beyond stubborn. When it comes to family and friends I can be obnoxious ensuring everyone is doing great. 

Everything isn’t soda pop and bubblegum. Shit happens. I literally don’t know a single person who doesn’t battle with mental health in some way it’s natural to feel these things. 

If you need help get it, don’t be ashamed to ask the ones you love. They care. 

Life is what you make it. Be the positivity you want to see in the world. And remember, social media ain’t shit. 

People think you’re dope in real life!

  • Finally spent a weekend in Golden (during summer) - and it did not disappoint! I had the best time learning and discovering the trails with the @shred_sisters 🚵🏻‍♀️✨. Oh, and we also found the most perfect little camp site looking out the Wapta Falls. What a treat!

  • My yoga deck dreams come true 😱🧘‍♀️🙏
.
I almost never post in landscape mode but I had to capture just how enormous this balcony is!  We have the pleasure of staying a few nights at my cousin’s chalet in Whistler, and one thing I was really looking forward to was practicing yoga here!
.
Sadly, it’s supposed to rain most of the time we’re here—what’s the deal, July?!—but Everly doesn’t mind at all and we will be spending as much time outdoors as possible!  She hasn’t stopped exploring since we got here and even skipped her nap today 🙈😳🤣
.
Thank you again @ginster2020 for inviting us up!

  • energy update for July, eclipse and 7/7 portal : powerful energies and major major shifts are taking place. this is the shift you’ve been waiting for where you embody that new beginning. no longer in that in between phase of old/new. we are embodying and stepping into the new. it’s here and its time. the old cycle has ended and the new one begins.
.
You may not exactly know what’s next, but feel it’s big 🚀. trust that feeling💫. there is a divine coming together in the most perfect time and perfect way.
.
many will be experiencing heightened awareness and shifts into a higher state of consciousness and way of being. a deeper level of connection and knowing.
.
there’s no going back. acknowledge, thank and release past versions of yourself. it’s time to let go and surrender to what is and what soon will be emerging, even if you don’t exactly know what that is yet. take the steps knowing you’re not always meant to know everything and allow it to come together.
.
there is a dismantling of structures within ourselves and the collective.(this will be a theme for a while as it takes longer for deeply rooted structures to be released). If you are feeling heavy or flat know that this energy will soon pass. give yourself the space to feel everything that is coming up for you, knowing that it comes up to be released.

  • I’m going to be vulnerable with you for a minute...sometimes I don’t post anything here about my life because I’m actually very happy, and I know that bugs people.

It’s so hard to find people who will be happy for you and with you, have you noticed that? Your friends, true friends, aren’t actually the people who are there for you when things are hard, no matter what you’ve been told. Tell your friends you’re happy. So happy, fulfilled, at peace, comfortable in your skin, financially stable. See whose eyes light up and laugh with you.

We’ve made happiness a competition! If I’m happy it means there won’t be enough happiness for you. If I succeed it means there won’t be space for your success. What?! When did it get so twisted?! 

When did we begin labeling anything that’s happy as fake and have to, almost excuse, the good things we share with a “behind the scenes” of the mess to get there? 

Friends, my life is an imperfect series of simultaneous ups and downs, victories and a long road ahead. But I’m happy right now! Things are good! Imperfectly so, yes, but good! They might not be next week or a year or decade from now, but I want to share the good that’s right now. Will you be my friend in happiness?

Can I be that friend for you? Who you can tell all your happiness to and who will light up and do a happy dance right along with you? I really really want to! Tell me in the comments something that’s making you just so “pat-myself-on-the-back-look-at-me-go” happy or just “this is bringing me peace and joy right now” glad, and I promise I’ll be there to squeal and praise with you! Whether you did a workout today, got a new job, got a compliment from someone you admire, tried a new dish, or applied for school, I want to celebrate with you. 

What’s good, guys?! ⬇️
