one of my last adventures to rainier was about a year ago, bittersweet on all levels. leaving WA was a whirlwind - ready to move on and simultaneously reluctant, optimistic about what was to come and fearful about leaving what was. in life i’m sure about zero things, but one truth that has been proven to me time & time again is the value of following your intuition. what calls to you, calls to you for a reason - most of the time it’s a reason beyond what you can understand in the given moment. it requires a larger picture and seeing the larger picture requires time and patience. I am not the most patient person, but life is teaching me how to be. in patience i’m able to see all the moving parts that led me here and accept that where I am is exactly where I’m meant to be. blindly trusting life may come off naïve, but I see great wisdom and peace in trust. you can’t fight fate, you can only accept and work with it. you may not love where you are in this moment, you may wish to be somewhere else - be patient and trust that you’ll make it there. don’t be inactive, don’t feel you have no say, don’t give up on getting there. try everyday in all that you do and see where it brings you. good things are in store.
Stoked for a long weekend in the wild!
Hope everyone can take advantage of the next three days to get outside, be active and explore new places.
But whether you’re in new areas or old, you can always find familiarity with a circle of friends around a glowing fire and a bag of marshmallows.
