"Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."

To improve the situation that you are in, you must learn and understand the importance of taking risks and traveling down an unknown path.
I used to bottle everything up until I would explode, breaking down in tears, and not knowing what hit me at the most random of times. But I have learned, if you want to release your emotions, you have to work through it without letting them consume you; otherwise, you are storing them for a later date.
Allow the unknown to happen and to transform you as it appears. This will not be an easy route. It will take perseverance and resilience. But through that you will grow, you will find freedom, and you will understand your strengths while becoming the change you wish to see in yourself.

This weekend was so good that Monday is feeling especially rough. We woke up on Saturday to head up in the mountains + hiked in 29 degree weather under some snow flurries for these incredible views 🏔 It was a good reminder that there are seasons in between summer hiking + winter skiing that are just as magical.
Yesterday we woke in the dark, packed our things, and set out to catch the first hints of light in @rockynps. Driving up Bear Lake Road in the dark my excitement grew as I knew what we were in for. Stepping out of the car we realized it wasn't exactly a calm day. As we set up at Bear Lake the wind and cold tried its best but could not distract us from the show before us. We witnessed one of the most beautiful sun rises I have ever seen in my life as the clouds caught on fire as they rolled across the top of Longs Peak (a peak we would hike to the base of later that day). After watching the spectacle we continued our way up to Dream and Emerald lakes where the wind only worsened... more on that later.
Fun fact: the view of Longs Peak from Bear Lake is on the Colorado state quarter. #RMNP#findyourpark#parks101#nationalpark
Devil's Head Lookout is a classic Colorado hike with well over 20,000 visitors every year. The fire lookout is the only one left in the state and is over 100 years old. The tower offers 360 panoramic views of mountains upon mountains. Have you visited this beautiful view?
Right as I stood up to take this picture, a huge gust of wind came and it felt like I was going to fall all 11,000 down to the bottom. Terrifying but also one of the best feelings in the world. If you've never been on a mountain and have the slightest inclination to do it, go for it!!! There is nothing like standing on top of something so huge, feeling so small, and yet having the privilege of taking in something so beautiful and majestic. Knowing that in the grand scheme of things you're tiny but there is a Maker who knows you to the soul and created all this beauty to reveal Himself to you.
