“You can’t ever reach perfection, but you can believe in an asymptote toward which you are ceaselessly striving” - Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air.
Perfection doesn’t exist, otherwise life would be so boring. So here’s to striving towards the best version of yourself, getting a little bit closer with every day and every change.

Looking forward to creating more moments like this throughout the year. 📷:9.18.18 traveling with my mom through some of my favorite parts of this beautiful country.
🌿Sometimes I need to stop and recharge my batteries. You cannot pour from an empty cup, and lately I have been feeling emotionally overwhelmed, for some reason. So, for the last couple of days, I have been reflecting on myself, and simply unwinding. My mind gets so cluttered at times that all I can do is take a break from everything, especially social media; it adds to the clutter. I get so focused on my routine, and my fitness, and everyone else around me, that I forget that an important part of my well being is taking care of my mental health, too. Taking road trips and fun vacays are great ways to clear my mind and open my perspective on things, but when I cannot do that, I try to just slow down and take a day off. I am trying to find more ways to self soothe and to calm my nerves. I am learning to find happiness in my moments of solitude. #selfcare#selflove
Forever my friend and my adopted little sister. I love you Isabel, I feel so blessed and thankful I got to have a whole week with you to show you around Denver and Colorado. Please visit in warmer weather ❤️
Let’s talk about Pro Squirrel, Mike Wardian, for a moment. Mike finished 10th at the H.U.R.T. 100 this past weekend, one of the toughest 100 mile races in existence. Just over a week after his H.U.R.T. finish, on January 27, to be exact, he’s beginning the World Marathon Challenge, which consists of 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. If that isn’t enough, Mike is attempting a World Record by adding on 3 marathons to the 7/7/7. We have no doubt that Mike will accomplish this feat not only in its entirety, but also with insanely fast times because after all, this IS THE Mike Wardian we are talking about! Just, wow! We can’t wait to follow you along on your journey, Mike!
There’s something magical about seeing the powerful ocean waves work themselves up the beach to meet fresh water and then head back out to sea. This past weekend felt good to get back to my roots.. wake up at 5am on a Sunday..before sunrise and drive an hour to a spot that you planned out the night before and be the only person there..
I am just really stinking happy right now. I am incredibly grateful and just generally excited about life. I think thats important, to be happy with where you’re life is at before stepping into a new adventure. Traveling without the intention to escape your current situation is, in my opinion, the best way to travel. So I’ll just be over here for the next few days grinning ear to ear and enjoying every last bit of this cold weather before I trade in snow & ice for sand & ocean // pc: @spenserpaigephotography
The Hohenzollern castle in Germany is a true Gothic revery — sitting majestically above a sea of clouds, bathed in the brilliant, apricot light of a fresh dawn. The enchanting site is located in the southwest region of the country, just about a three hour’s drive outside of Munich. How many of you have visited this fairytale location? (📷: @kpunkka 📍: Germany)
