As humans we are resilient. We have an uncanny ability to adapt, to show up and to push through almost any circumstance we are presented with. Within a given day, we are able to transition seamlessly between being an employee, a leader, a mother/father, a friend, a spouse, a partner, a mentor, a teacher, etc. This trait serves us in countless ways, but where do we draw the line? Where in our lives are we able to show up 100% as ourselves?
Altering who we are (even slightly) is not only exhausting, but if we do it enough, we start losing touch with who we truly are. We forget what lights us up; what flows naturally through us without control or exerted effort. We say yes when we really mean no. We fill our calendars with tasks that are not in alignment with our vision or our values. Living in this state leaves us feeling depleted. Ultimately, it effects our health, our relationships, the way we see ourselves and the world.
Take an inventory of how you show up every day and how it makes you feel. Really listen. What is happening in your body? What sensations do you feel in your belly? Your heart? Your throat? Identify areas that excite you and bring you joy, and also areas that drain your energy. Brainstorm ways in which you can invite more joy and more alignment into your day. Outline small steps do get you there. Where do you need to start saying no? (Btw, if it is not a “hell yes” - it is a no.) Life is short make room for the joy.
After a thrilling day of camping, biking, swimming, and more, visitors of Salisbury Beach State Reservation settled into the sand to enjoy a fireside park interpreter program and watch a summer storm roll in over the weekend. The salty air, royal blue sea and sky make this an exceptional moment #getoutdoors#moreroomforactivities
"And I want to walk with you,
On a cloudy day,
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high"

With another font trip in mind, time to train! Working some problems on the moon board tonight down @sunderlandwall can’t beat it for a training venue 💪 this is a problem called Ziaga, it’s got an awesome little move really low down when your left foot matches with your left hand then a series of big pulls to the top 🙂
