✨🐝I feel like a broken record in every one of my posts lately how with each experience and each day I approach it with an open heart to my utmost ability. With gratitude, patience and acceptance. I was disheartened to learn my favorite hobby and coping strategy (i.e hiking) is going to be very limited due to the pandemic illness, and due to people not being responsible. I venture not necessarily to escape, but to find stillness and acceptance amidst everything else going on outside of my own mind. To seek thrill because in those moments of excitement and unknowing... I feel the most alive. Just living moment to moment. Most of everyone’s life revolves around having to think in the past (creating grief, sadness and regret) or in the future (creating fear, anxiety and stress). But days like today, in each moment of today I remembered I have the gift to be present. Things went perfectly, the clouds just past to the right of the canyon. And we got so lucky. And I am so humbled by the happiness I felt from just being able to play in the sun all day with my quarantine tribe (my doggies and my fiancé). Make time for yourself and create space for moments, or in any capacity to just take in everything you have and be thankful for it.
I have health, two-amazing-loving-friendly dogs, a partner that loves me enough to trek 12 miles in a day for no reason (even when he doesn’t want to @mike.dubzz ) and just being fucking alive! *side note for all the body image shit, I could have picked apart this picture but fuck being ashamed or judgmental to myself or what others may think. Im learning to love the parts on my body that are “less than ideal” because I realize that whatever you look like, whatever flaws you have... none of it fucking matters dudes. 💌 you are not a representation of what you physically look like.* Hope everyone has a self-caring, self-loving week full of acceptance and gratitude. 🌏🌍🌎 #optoutside #adventurepups #ruffweardog #dogsofinstagram #thegreatpnw #milkywaychasers #canyontrekking #reicoop #isolatedbutnotalone - 21 minutes ago
