When we feel grateful, everyday things become miracles, like our beating heart, wind blowing through your hair and the warmth of the sun. Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.
In honor of #InternationalMountainDay - my first mountain in 2015. This is actually a photo of the peak of Mt. Meru, but it was on the way to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. This climb showed me so much about who I am and how I show up in the world when shit gets tough and it ain't pretty.

Lesketajoč sneg v odsevu sončnih žarkov je najlepša okrasitev v Decembru.. ✨

I found where Mother Nature hides the whipped cream supply...
Life itself is already a miracle. All we have to do is be calm and inhibit. We will learn to act without question and listen without answers. The earth fills us and completes us without effort, just as a river swells it’s banks pouring endlessly into the sea. 🌊 Fill yourself up with its magic! 🧙🏽♂️ #magickingdom#earthgirladventures#whole

Joe surprised me with an early Christmas present - I’m the luckiest girl in the world!
I haven’t been riding a lot the last few years, and I could give a lot of lame excuses as to why. I can’t wait to take this thing out on the trails!!
Thank you so much @joe___murph you’re seriously the best! 😍
Through the pines, coffee in hand, feeling completely content. That’s how I want to spend more of my weekends. || thank you @lacolombecoffee for making the coffee part as easy as grabbing one from my fridge. #sponsored
Nothing better than climbing a mountain and discovering a bunch of happy little trees and clouds hanging out and just having a good time. #iLoveBobRoss

I made it out alive from my #winterdeathtrip!
Here's what I learned:
1. Survival blankets are awesome. (The thick UST 2.0 kind. People say to use it as a ground tarp under your tent to prevent snow from seeping in, but I found that placing it inside the tent on the floor to reflect body heat back up was more effective.)
2. Waterproof Gore-tex hiking boots are no match for snowshoeing all day in knee-deep powder. Next time I'll have proper alpine mountaineering boots that don't freeze into solid ice. That frostbite scare wasn't worth it. 😬
3. It takes an hour to melt snow for water. 💦 Why does nobody mention that in their winter camping blogs?? Pack a Jetboil, not your usual backpacking stove. Pack hella fuel. We needed it all.
4. If it's cold enough outside (our nighttime temps were in the teens), with determination and desperation you most definitely can stuff 3 adults into a 2-person backpacking tent. 🤣
5. The hot-water-bottle-in-your-sleeping-bag trick: it's tempting to put the bottle at your frozen feet, put placing it between your legs (femoral artery) will result in more efficient and even heat distribution. Mmm, toasty. 🔥 .
My toes have regained most of their sensation. One fingertip is curiously numb and tingly, but I'm not too worried about it. Winter Death Trip was challenging, beautiful, and I actually enjoyed every moment! Well, except for when I had to put my freshly dried and warmed toes back into wet/frozen boots. That sucked. 👎
❄️Have you tried winter camping? Do you have tips to share with me? Dis newb wants to know. 🤓

Not sure what kind of sweatshop doesn’t observe International Mountain Day but needless to say I was too busy not observing to observe the holiday. #JusticeForInternationalMountainDay

Change is scary. Its intimidating and uncomfortable. Change makes you feel vulnerable. Without it though, we wouldn’t be able to grow. To make it through all the times you thought you wouldn’t. It makes you stronger; it opens doors to life changing adventures. You’re able to see just how possible it is to change the “I want to’s” to the “I did it’s”. Sometimes we have to have our lives completely turned upside down to have us end up exactly where we were meant to be. Sometimes you just need to let go and trust the magic of new beginnings.
I’ve officially landed back in Canada after almost a year! It can be a really strange feeling returning home after so long when you feel many changes have happened in yourself. I’m really looking forward to kicking back with the family and letting all of this year’s changes truly sink in and provide some clarity. 🇨🇦✈️
If you look closely enough, you can see the tiny, unique ❄️’s just like my new TRAVEL SET😻

Things I don’t understand: wearing a toque at the gym, hiking in jeans, and switching lanes without checking. 🤔

HAY DÍAS EN LOS QUE CUESTA ASOMARSE A LA VIDA, PERO AUN ASÍ MERECE LA PENA INTENTARLO!!!! La vida está llena de alegrías, sorpresas e ilusiones, pero también de sinsabores, sustos y decepciones. O TE LO LLEVAS TODO, O NO TE LLEVAS NADA.
Siendo sinceros, nadie nos va a regalar nada en esta vida. Hoy en día, la gente que triunfa son aquellos que se la juegan, que saben lo que quieren y que no sólo hacen lo que deben hacer, sino que harán todo lo que tengan que hacer para conseguirlo. Es esta gente la que se lleva el pastel. Punto.
Hay gente que va por la vida como si fueran a vivir dos veces. Vivir no es mirar 2, 5, 10 años atrás y ver que todo sigue igual, que no hiciste nada de lo que realmente querías hacer porque tu madre, tu vecino, tu mejor amigo, o tu profesor te dijeron que no lo hicieras. Vivir no es esperar al fin de semana para salir de fiesta y volver borracho a casa.
Si algún día tienes la oportunidad de hablar con alguien mayor, de 70, 80 años, te dirán que aproveches más el tiempo, porque son personas a las que se les está acabando el tiempo, y saben de lo que hablan.
TIENES QUE DARLO TODO.
Nunca jamás te vas a arrepentir de algo en lo que te hayas entregado el 200% y hayas puesto todo tu corazón en ello. Te lo aseguro. Si vas a hacer algo, no te quedes a medias. Prepárate y haz todo lo que tengas que hacer, de forma que cuando pasen los años, no puedas preguntarte ¿Qué habría pasado si me hubiera esforzado un poco más? El día que te preguntes eso, es muy posible que ya sea demasiado tarde.
Abraza al mundo como viene; estate para los viernes, pero también para los lunes; no salgas al campo a maquillar el resultado, sino a JUGAR LA VIDA CON LAS REGLAS DE LA VIDA.
