PRESENCE & GRATITUDE
Keep going... but be PRESENT! Where are you in this very moment? If we stop to check in often we realize that we’re so focused on the road ahead and where we’re going that we don’t even recognize where we ARE. It’s wonderful to be clear about your dreams and manifesting them - but are you so focused on them that you can’t see how beautiful and powerful your life is right now? It’s so comfortable to slip into the past and the future, yet neither exists in this moment. All we have is NOW. Being so focused on what I WANT to do has DISTRACTED me from just how powerful the last year has been! So I’m taking a moment to CELEBRATE and reflect on all the shifts and experiences that have led me to be in this very moment. WOW! I’m so damn grateful. What can you celebrate?! #wildher #presence #gratitude #celebrateyourselfnow

*insert name of pretty waterfall* 🍃🐛🐸
Chasing waterfalls in Honduras. It took a 1,5 hour hike to reach this one, up up up through the jungle -> cold shower as reward! 👌🏻
I dreamed last night that when I woke up this morning, Mt. Bachelor had 6 inches of snow. In my dream, I was rallying my running partners to bring coffee and and layers and continue with our plan to run up the mountain before work.
When I woke, I noticed for the first time since the summer solstice that it was a little dark at 5am. At first I thought maybe it was cloudy. But no, my friends, the days are indeed getting shorter.
Though we didn’t get any snow last night, the morning was beautiful and crisp. We could see all the way to Mt. Adams (in Washington state), south to Mt. Scott (near Crater Lake), and we could just barely make out Mary’s Peak in the Oregon Coast Range. It wasn’t too difficult to imagine the frigid waves of the Pacific Ocean crashing against the rocks and beaches just a bit further west.
These views never get old.
Someday, I may not be able to jaunt up this mountain, for one reason or another.
I am grateful that I was able to today, and that human and dog friends were there to share the experience.

“lucia, do you love me? are you hiking? say you’ll neva eva leave from beside me..” - drakes original lyrics, probably.
one thing to know about me is I don’t stick to a specific genre of music. I honestly like it all, and I like that about myself. except some pop-country music. sorry florida-georgia line, I will never understand ya. K byeeeeeeee.
I am my own worst critic. I'm not sure if this is common - I think it probably is - but it definitely is with me.
The past five-ish days have been insane for me. Hell, the past two weeks have been insane. My personal life and work life have been going at light speed recently and I lost the keys to my rocket. New friends, old friends, new places, hard conversations, demands at work, personal demands, heart string-pullin' student evaluations (I have the best students ever y'all...seriously...they are so incredibly sweet 😭), and other people saying some flat out rude things to me. And while I am so wildly fortunate to have so many amazing experiences and people in my life, it can be a lot. Too much, at times.
I can (almost) always see all sides of an argument. And I don't have a filter. And I truly believe that when we are honest and genuine the people who should be in your life will be in your life.
But - plot twist - when you put yourself out there some people are going to love it, some people are going to hate it, and some people are going to punish you for it. But ya know what? That same fire that casts shadows on the laugh lines of friends at 1 AM from laughter and blissful nostalgia also fuels me. That fire to learn and absorb about the true and raw moments in people's lives just lights me up. And that comes with a price tag sometimes.
But you know what else? I've got expensive taste. Bring it on. Bring it all on.

IVE MADE IT TO DOWNTON ABBEY 😭❤️ so many emotions today when I got to stroll through the real life castle that downton abbey was not only filmed, but simulated the history of the REAL family that lived on these grounds for the last few hundreds of years. Idk how I can recover from this beautiful day
I’m not a young man, but I did go west. 🦂🌵
A couple study-free weeks means not having a too-tired brain to read fiction, yasssss! When the bf then brings coffee on top of that, life is perfect. 📚☕️
🌳 Hey friends 👋 I hope you’re all having a great week so far! I just posted these sterling silver earrings on the site. What does “tree of life” mean to you? It reminds of this quote: “Storms make trees take deeper roots”. 🌳
makin my way downtown, walkin fast, and most likely hollering at ryan that I’m hungry 🍕 (you sang that last part didn’t you? 😬)
How do you show up in the world? Do you allow yourself to be seen? Or do you tuck parts of yourself away? So many of us have been taught that showing up in our fullest power and strongest self is selfish or shameful. Nothing could be further from the truth. When you step into your power you are fulfilling your purpose on this earth. You don’t have to show off - you just have to show up. Take a lesson from Mother Earth, simply allow yourself to be seen and admired. #wildher #ownyourpower

Find out who you are and try not to be afraid of it
I miss him and this place. ♥️
One of the reasons I requested a mid-July entry date in the Mount Whitney lottery was to shoot the Milky Way during a new moon. Although it didn’t quite work out to shoot on the Mount Whitney trail due to the Georges fire, @grace_abbott
and I found peace and solace camping at Summit Lake midweek. I set my alarm for midnight, and Grace and I crawled out of our tents to a balmy upper 50s and breezeless night. Walking down to the water’s edge, we were utterly transfixed watching the Milky Way rise over the southern sky. We spent about an hour enjoying the view!
‘I do not expect my child’s respect, just because I have given birth to their life.
It does not mean they owe me.
What I want most,
is to look into my child’s eyes
and see that I have given birth
to a heart.

I worried a lot. Will the garden grow, will the rivers
flow in the right direct, will the earth turn
as it was taught, and if not, how shall
I correct it?
Was I right or wrong... Will I ever be able to sing... Is my eyesight fading.... Finally I saw that worrying had come to nothing
And gave it up. And took my old body
and went out into the morning,
and sang. #giftsofthehighdesert #wildthings #maryoliverismyspiritanimal #summerheat
The fruits of my labor, I’ll enjoy 'em while they still ripe - Lil Wayne // thank you Ireland for being even more beautiful then I thought you’d be. I’ll be back for more ❤️🍀👋🏼
I came for one of the Four Great Traverses but settled for the summit. For now... ⛰
Surreal. It’s the only word that continues to swirl around in my head to describe all the feelings of having climbed a mountain that has intimidated me for the past two years. I knew this day would eventually come and it made my stomach churn every time I thought about it. Of all the 58 14ers this was the only one I truly dreaded. I expected to be terrified the entire climb. I expected there to be frustration. I expected there to be tears. I expected to get injured. What I didn’t expect was how much I would laugh, joke around, and try to make light of how ridiculous the terrain is along the standard route of this mountain. What I didn’t expect was the constant smile on my face. What I didn’t expect was to walk away with only a few bruises, blisters, and bug bites. And least of all, what I didn’t expect was to actually enjoy this mountain despite its many challenges and constant fear of life-threatening rockfall. Much of that I owe in large part to @_love_yourlife
, and @corn.on.da.jacob
for all the adventures both on and off the mountain this weekend. And a special thank you to @taylorcline_runs
for never once leaving my side. It’s no overstatement to say that I could not have done this mountain without you. Now get ready to take me back for the greatest of The Four Great Traverses. 😉
Little Bear, you are anything but little. Thank you for keeping all of us safe on this climb and making #39
one of the most exhilarating, challenging, and memorable 14ers. I’ll see you again someday. 🐻⛰ #iatepizzaatthetop
