With love from Lāna'i💕 For the last week we’ve been traveling through Hawaii on an incredible trip with @fourseasons. Even as someone born and raised here I’ve been surprised and awed by something new on every single island! From flying over lava to flying underwater on scooters I cannot wait to show more of what we’ve been up to.
@sam_kolder took this of me on a sunrise exploration around the cliff in front of @fslanai commonly called Sweetheart Rock a few days ago. Now we’re on Maui looking across the sea as the sun dips behind Lāna'i.
No deep thoughts for tonight, just lots of gratitude :) #HawaiibyFS#FourSeasons#Lanai#sponsored

I read today that the chances of you being born are one in 400 trillion. And I just sat here and let that sink in and the more I thought about it the more unimaginably cool it all seemed!
To stand in the places you have been, to have seen that blooming flower, the perfect sunrise, bumped shoulders with a stranger turned best friend. To be right here. Right now. Caught in the rain or basking in sunshine. Knowing what you know and seeing what you’ve seen and loving who you love. The infinitesimal odds of it all leave me in awe.
So whatever is bothering you today, whatever seems too big or too small just think...we are unlikely occurrences, looking at other equally unlikely near miracles on a precious spinning round ball in an unfathomably large universe leading mathematically improbable existences. I think this is rad. The end.🙈✨ #ilikemath#notestoselfseries#everydaymiracles#southafrica

A dream within a dream.🌛 The full moon setting in juxtaposition with the rising sun and I’m standing in the middle of that beautiful silence. I think this is why, over and over again, I fall in love with waking up early. @conradboraboranui#stayinspired

Morning light on the coast🌞 GIVEAWAY: weee I get to give away a trip for two to do this same tour with @capt.andys!! I’m lucky to have gone quite a few times in my life (never, ever gets old) and I’m happy to pass along the opportunity. You’ll get to see the Na Pali coast from the water and do a beach landing during their 6.5 hr expedition tour. Ages and ages ago my mom used to be roommates with Andy when he was first starting the company - Kauai is so funny like that :)
1. Follow me and @capt.andys
2. Tag someone you would want to bring☺️⛵️ (maybe say something nice to them too? I mean why not haha)
Winner will be announced Monday 7-9 and given two gift certificates valid for one year. (Good excuse to come to kauai?!) Good luck human beings!! #kauai#giveaway#captandys#napalicoast

Extremely humbled to be partnering with @canonusa to push myself in all my artistic pursuits and hopefully encourage any aspiring creatives out there to elevate what you believe you are capable of as well.
They’ve given me eight challenges for the next 8 months and I’m excited to showcase what their newest and most advanced entry level camera, the #EOSRebelt7i, can do. Proud to be part of #TeamCanon 🖤

The best advice I ever got was to stop apologizing and start thanking. So instead of saying “Sorry I’m late”, say “Thank you for waiting for me”. This exercise reframes an unnecessary negative emotion into a positive one and showers us all in extra gratitude. It also has the benefit for keeping apologies more sacred for when we really do need those words.
So...Instead of sorry for so many summer posts, I’m going to say thank you for appreciating the most beautifully serene morning with me. For letting me relive so many memories on here :) (Inspired by a DM from @taylorhlofus🙏🏼)
An extra thank you to you all in general for supporting my supremely joyful way of seeing the world. Thank you for making me feel heard when I express myself about anything from plastic pollution to uncertainties in my own heart. This list could just keep on going. I like saying thank you so much!!!
Thank you 📷@amirzakeri for taking this one at 6 am while the world was doing its magic thing and I was still half asleep😌💕 #gratitude#conradboraboranui

But have you ever seen water this blue?🙈 shot on my @djiglobal#MavicAir here in Bora Bora. I’ve been in the water every day, but it’s crazy to see the delineation of shallow to deep water from afar!! I actually thought most photos of this place were photoshopped but nope, nature is just a masterpiece and one I will never get enough of.💙

Today I woke up with a thousand thank yous etched across my heart and my notebook. I believe in the power of writing things down. In detail. What you want, where, your dream job, your values and ambitions, your most extraordinary day.
So for any of you who also believe - might want to add villa number 107 to the list😋 @conradboraboranui (this place is crazy beautiful I can’t stand it. I’m watching the moon rise from my bungalow right now!!)

Since landing on Mo'orea I’ve spent more time swimming than sleeping. Exhausted, blissed out happy, slightly sunburnt, and right now very very hungry🙈🥥. I feel like I have so much I want to say but for now, goodnight beautiful world, I’m about to make crêpes with my friends and wake up for my fourth sunrise in a row💛🌙 #moorea
Photo by @amirzakeri remember when we almost didn’t come to Tahiti? Yea. Me too.

Pause. Listen. Appreciate. Repeat.😌☁️ #ad@Citibank asked me to share moments that make me deeply happy in celebration of their app which is designed to save time online. I adore camp mornings, slow wake ups and surfing with my friends :) #hawaii

My favorite kinds of beautiful are all below the surface.💙 this is the largest pod I’ve ever had the privilege of swimming with (they’re even behind us out of frame of the video) and I swear there are times when I forget I’m not breathing, forget everything that exists besides being a slowly beating heart in this magnificent infinite blue.
Video by @cobiandewey. I met Cobian a year or two ago when he was just getting more into shooting and slacklining - now it absolutely kills it at both. So stoked to get in the water with you again! What a day. #hawaii

Life tip Tuesday: We are, by nature, attracted to vibrant colors. If you want to spend less time on your phone try switching it to grayscale! In IOS it’s easy and if you click the “home” button three times it will switch back and forth easily.
Accessibility -> Accessibility shortcut -> Color filters
I’ll link how to do it in my stories :)
I also put all my social media apps in a folder inside a folder on my third page so it’s not the first thing I see. Instead I put my “happiness” apps like meditation or reading first. •
Thank you @alannapotter for showing me this the other day! If you guys have any other ones I’d love to hear them.
