Как понять, что не зря тратишь время? Минуты превращаются в потерянные годы.
Работа из необходимости, а не по вдохновению - зря потраченное время.
Соц.сети - пустое. Транспорт ежедневно съедает часы.
Но есть средство. Чувство счастья освещает любой процесс смыслом.
Занимаюсь любимым делом - жизнь проходит не зря! Наслаждаюсь любимым хобби в выходные - даже без результата это не потраченное бессмысленно время. Общаюсь в сети с дорогим человеком, который далеко, и улыбаюсь - разве это пустота?
Получается, что весь смысл в счастье и любви. Как бы находить способы быть счастливым каждую минуту?Осозновать, что счастлив. И это возможно! Точно знаю. И верю в возвращение своего потерянного рая 🖤
🎉 Today I am 26 years old! The last year was full of ups and down but I wouldn’t trade it for anything because it’s made me who I am! I’ve gone on some rad adventures, done some cool things, and hiked to a few amazing places!
I’ve got a big year planned out for 26 and I am SO excited to get it started. And that starts now! I woke up at 5am and we’re off to Tofino, one of my favourite places, and we’re going to eat burritos and go surfing and eat more burritos and go to some hot springs next to the ocean and go for beach walks and eat burritos and have a beach campfire and have s’mores and eat burritos. Did I mention the 🌯?
Sunset at Cape Alava, westernmost point of the contiguous US and terminus of the Pacific Northwest Trail. What started as plans to thru hike the PNT turned into two section hikes, but after all was said and done, it was for the best. The trail was tougher than I ever imagined, and I doubt I would have finished if I tried to hike the whole thing at once, alone. It was not only an intense physical challenge, but a mental one as well. In the Olympic Mountains, I went three days without seeing another human. As an introvert, I don’t mind hiking alone, but I missed the hiker camaraderie more than anything. Well, maybe not as much as having dry clothes, but I missed it a lot. During the first two weeks of the Washington section, it rained nearly every day. My days consisted of trying to stay warm when I wasn’t hiking. Even when it wasn’t raining, I still got soaked from the wet brush along the trail. I quickly learned what it’s like to hike unmaintained trails/roads while making my way through the Olympics; there were giant blowdowns everywhere, overgrown brushy miles, and navigational challenges. In spite of all this, I was still able to average 18 mi/day, slightly less than the 21 mi/day through the easier Puget Sound section. The wilderness coast was a completely different animal. I was fortunate that the sun came out because that’s where the hiking was toughest. There were slippery rock fields, steep climbs up and down bluffs, tricky creek fords, and high tides. For the coastal section, I averaged only 11 mi/day, hiking when I could from sunrise to sunset. As hard as it all was, it was incredibly beautiful. There were moments that made all of the previous struggles seem worth it. Because of this, I do recommend the PNT, but with stipulation. Do it with friends, give yourself enough time (don’t force the miles like I did), and be prepared for the challenges that await. Do all three, and you’re more likely than not to have the time of your life out there.
Friendship, perseverance, challenges and grit is bountifully on display when you watch @mountainmahila

Up, up, and still more up. This was the start of a stupidly steep section of trail and after 43 km of hiking in the three days before this hike, I was basically destroyed. But it was finally worth it when we saw what we thought was the hut but was actually the outhouse. I’ve never been to happy to see a shitter before 😂 Thankfully the hut was just a hundred meters behind it.
