Well so far any way, life goes on because what's the point in waiting for things and people to change when it's clear that they won't, life goes on because you just get on with things and do them even if that means you do nearly everything on your own, life goes on because you aren't here to manage others lives when you have your own to deal with, life goes on because you'll be wiser before trusting and believing the promises people make you and honouring the unspoken boundaries that have been now crossed by others. Life really does go on and on and on. #life#doitforme#trustself#selfworth#selflove#journey#love#lifelessons#growth#movingon
Never underestimate the power and importance of your mind. Health and wellness isn't all about looking after your body physically, or what food you eat...when you think about it everything begins with a thought. Mental wellbeing should never be overlooked...if you are wondering where to begin in order to improve your health and wellness a great place to start is with your mental health. Making time and space to sit and tune into to your thoughts and how they feel in your body can help build your understanding of where your mental wellbeing is at. This is a forever evolving journey, one that will continue to bring us new information, challenges and wins. It all beings with a thought and the rest will follow that. 😊💕

“It’s the time to make choices you can be proud of. It’s the time to be the best version of yourself and in the process, somewhere along the way hopefully you attract the best version someone else has to offer. The more you challenge yourself, the higher your expectations become for your life and the people you want to have in it.” Erin Foster
Time to make yourself proud!

I went skydiving for my 21st birthday. I was super sassy on the ground telling my diving instructor I wanted the works during freefall - twists, turns, spins, the lot!
But when I got up to 14,000 ft, and my legs were dangling out of the plane, I got scared, really scared. The fact that I was about to willingly throw myself out of a plane suddenly got VERY real. And the guy strapped to my back had to pry my fingers off the door and push me out.
But you see, because I'd told him what I wanted before push came to shove (figuratively AND literally speaking!), I couldn't back out. So I jumped.
This is a bit like life.
When you're creating a huge life changing goal that makes you really excited, leverage that confidence when you feel it and do something that means you can't back out when you're in the thick of change - chances are you will want to quit your dream at some stage because I can assure you, it will get difficult along the way. The pull off retreating back into the familiar (aka, your comfort zone) will be very strong, but if your dream is worth it, the pull no matter how strong, is worth resisting. This is where the locked back door to retreat comes in handy as it means you have no choice but to move forward!
Nothing great ever came from staying in your comfort zone, so go leverage your sass today and do something that means you won't be able to back out when the excitement turns to fear. If you do, the fear will eventually turn to triumph and you'll be a better person for the experience.

All those "happy chemical" feels goin' on over here ☺️ After a full morning of reading and deep talking with my philosophy friends, I needed a good sweat sesh. This thirty minute routine by Autumn Calabrese was EXACTLY what I needed. Non-stop movement 🤸🏼♀️ I've been on her program for the past week and am LOVING it. Of course I hate it WHILE I'm doing it...who doesn't? But afterwards I feel like I'm in sweat heaven!! BLISS
Followed up with a hot shower, bowl of pumpkin oatmeal and 20-minute meditation. I'm really liking this daily meditation. I feel so appreciative of everything. Moreso than usual at least.
It's not the easiest thing to let our kids be in control in the kitchen and to make things for themselves when we can quickly do it ourselves. I've been trying to let loose a little and let the boys do some of these simple tasks on their own. Even if it means letting Mason add mustard to his egg sandwich 🤢
I was probably 26y/o in the middle of graduate school at the University of Hawaii. I was studying ethnobotany & invasive species biology & was working for the state of Hawaii with their invasive feral pig problem. During this time I had a very good friend of mine who was a marine biologist working w/ leatherback sea turtles. We had met a few years prior as mountaineering guides for Outward Bound outdoor schools. We both hit it off because we were both nature fanatics & biologists. We headed up an expeditionary project to go to this extremely remote Coastline of Irian Jaya Indonesia (no man's land) where it was discovered that this booming feral pig population was decimating one of last leatherback sea turtle nesting habitats by digging up & eating over 98% of the nests where eggs are being laid on the beach. We set off with our food rations and fishing equipment & it was basically truly setting off for the unknown. Very very long story cut very short we were stuck without food & there was no one that ever came back to Rescue us. It became a desperate situation we were riddled with staph infection. We made Spears and did our best to catch whatever we could, we were eating dead fish that washed up on the beach and every once in awhile would snare a bird. This is a pig that I hunted down in the middle of the the darkness of the night without any light. I could only hear it crunching pandanis nuts with their jaws. I blindly hurled the spear. With such a lucky blow I then, emotionaly, I realized that we had enough food to make it through at least another week. This timewas indeed one of the scariest times in my life.I dreamt about my family my grandma's cookies & all of my future. Eventually we did get rescued but going through that experience gave me a glimpse of what hard is. I always look back on that experience as an experience that kept me alive, even to this day when life gets hard I try to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.You have to keep fighting. And when you're back and healthy you can really appreciate how wonderful life is & what a gift it is. #survival#wildpigs#irianjaya#primalsurvivor#lifelessons#survivor#pighunter#sogladtobehome
Things don't always happen the way you imagine them to be. Learning to pick yourself up after going through some tough stuff is an important skill. And no one ever teaches you that shit. Life can be very beautiful and cruel at the same time. #lifelessons#strength#allheart 💔#nevergiveup#beyourownhero
1. You have to trust the process. Plant the seeds, do the work, and wait for them to grow.
2. The work has to get done. Whether there's a funeral or wedding or if it's snowing or the sun is shining--the crops have to get planted and the cows have to get fed.
3. Teamwork makes the job easier.
4. Love what you do, gosh darn it.
5. Have fortitude. Do whatcha gotta do.
6. You won't regret the passion and work that you put into your work.
7. Praise Jesus!
8. It's not always convenient, but it has to get done. And it'll probably be worth it!
9. The harvest may be plentiful or it may be small. Either way, you do it all again next season.
10. Life is great!
