Stay grounded. I used to think “grounding” was only a punishment I got for disobeying my parents. However, Mother Nature helps us to stay grounded to our true roots and keeps us sane.
Thanks to @airbear202 for being patient with my terrible fly fishing skills, and showing me @joerogan podcast who made me realize how nature keeps us grounded.
Last weekend we were at the beach enjoying the warm weather and that seemed really great until I heard it had snowed back home because that would have been even more great to experience but now it's the weekend again so we will finally be able to head up to the snow filled mountains and play all day long which will be the best! I'm very very excited to say the least
Four months ago we quit our jobs to resoundingly answer the nagging question of "if not now, when?" We moved into our truck with 3 watercrafts, endless adventure gear & too many clothes. We had the skeleton of a plan, but the meat of our trip consisted of bouncing around the West between friends' homes, rumors of hatches & random features plucked from atlases & maps floating around the truck.
We found kindness in camp hosts & strangers met at hot springs. We reconnected with old friends. We loved each other fiercely & fought often. We watched sunsets & sunrises & slept next to rivers as often as possible. •
We intended to be on the road 6 months. But while we rejected the grip of jobs, rent & 401Ks, one is never truly in control of the mysteries of life. We came home in August to be caregivers for Graham's mom, who received a bilateral lung transplant. We swapped our self indulgent adventure for the duty of family, something that may not be as instagram-worthy as #trucklife , but is an essential, valuable part of life. To know that you were there when a loved one needed you is yet another "If not now, when?" question to be answered. •
A week ago, we hit the road again. Not to complete our 6 month adventure, but to start a new one. Tomorrow we put-in on the Rogue. Together, alone again, on our raft-away-from-home.
I often set expectations way too high for myself, my partner, experiences, humanity. I call it idealism, but it's simply how I engage with the world. It isn't bad to live this way, unless you can't recover when those expectations are not met. Circumstances are constantly in flux & the universe doesn't give a shit about your expectations. Plans change & one has to react accordingly - be fulfilled in flexibility.
We didn't make it to 6 months. We didn't make a sweet blog. We have hours of GoPro footage that will probably go unused. But we have each other. We have wonderful stories to tell around kitchen tables & campfires. We have newfound strength in our abilities. And we have a long list of new adventures discovered along the way that require more exploration. So here's to shattering expectations & finding new adventures. See y'all in a week.
Coach training day was a success .
We have had a very hectic morning thus far! And an exciting one I may add
If you haven't noticed I am so passionate and in love with my coaching gig. .
Not only has it given me the opportunity to completely transformed my body and shift my mind about my health and that of my family's. .
But I've been able to get out of my comfort zone, meet some amazing people, be more financially secure, and I get to do it with my bestie. My sweet Mya #cutestbusinesspartnerever .

Baby girl is obviously tired from this morning's events so I will let her take her nap, and I'll take advantage of this beautiful day to walk around the city, count my blessings and plan huge things for my team and I
