Palm trees and the Eiffel Tower? Toto, I don't think we're in Paris anymore. Only in Las Vegas! #constantlyseekingwonder
Sometimes if you just go for it great things can happen. You can even surprise yourself. This pic of me enjoying the view from near the summit of Mt Rainier captures a moment where I had blown my own mind. I was marveling at the fact that I had summited one of the great mountains in the United States, without a single days training! Now I'm certainly not recommending that this is a good strategy, because I'm living proof that it wasn't because I've never been in more pain in the coming days in my life. But, I did will myself to the top and down again, about 9,000 feet in altitude gain, when I truly didn't have what it took to do that. I had been training for half marathons and hadn't hiked one single hill even in three months when I got an opportunity to join a team which I took just three days before the climb. Little did I know that I'd have to utilize every ounce of determination I had to get this done. Half way up we had a ten minute break, nine minutes of which I thought I was turning back, the last minute was the only minute I even thought about continuing, the last ten seconds I decided to keep going. I'm so glad I did. Despite the ridiculous pain afterwards caused by climbing one of the biggest mountains in continental US off the couch, it's now one of my favorite memories. Everyone told me not to do it. I told myself half way up that I was mad. But in the end the courage to search myself to find the grit to keep going that day is one of my proudest achievements. It was a defining moment for me in terms of what I'm made of and what I can achieve. It redefined my own sense of self. Next time however, I'm going to train for it that's for sure! β›° . . . . . . . . . #selfhelp #subconsciousmind #selfdevelopment #improveyourself #selfimprovement #confidence #anxietyhelp #lifecoach #motivationalspeaker #selftalk #peptalk #lonely #loneliness #love #motivational #quotes #authentic #selflove #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #spiritual #coaching #lifecoaching #lifechanging #relationshipquotes #truth #inspirationdaily #consciousness #quotestoliveby #honesty
