Push through - something we always hear don’t we. From being told to be fired up about everything, to being measured by how productive we are, to being told that being “on fire” is the powerful state of being for your success. And perhaps this one… Something you want to create and you’re experiencing resistance - push through.
Push through is needed, but how to push through and how to do it properly so that you’re not actually fighting yourself. How to get all of you to be behind what you’re wanting to create? After all, if you’ve gotta fight the world, why also continue along while fighting yourself? Push through isn’t the full explanation - it needs to be done correctly. Have a listen as I explain how, and a few personal stories behind it all. How pushing through can be done right and how we’re taught and perhaps doing it in a way that’s counter productive.

The purpose of traveling should never be only about discovering new places but should be life well deeper than that. Think of it as an opportunity to see the other side of you, your partner, or your bff! Challenge yourself to make memories of a lifetime and have stories to tell your grandkids. Live fully and well! Make it count. This is our journey era, my journey to another me ❤️ Sunset at the World’s Tallest Building 🌅

Hope everyone is ready for the heat on Colorado today. It is supposed to be close to 100 today! Whew!
Don’t mind us, we’re just living our best lives here in my dads proper English kitchen. Coffee and tea are poured well into the afternoon, conversation is overflowing, and we are just so happy to be here...
We have ventured out to a few neighboring towns and villages, acquired some hundred+ year old pots from @smokingmonkeyantiques, devoured some amazing posh cheese toasties at @wrights_2018, and were treated to a perfect backyard garden dinner by our extended English family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Still have a trip to the seaside and a visit to @devolkitchens ... 🇬🇧
Well well well, finally Instagram rolls out the hiding of number of likes to down under Oz! As expected, there have been a lot of discussions of Yea or Nay? 🤔 Please...whatever you think it is, NEVER trade your self-worth for any number of likes. Don't lose the 'fun' of using the app eh. And Instagram's claim of 'mental health' justification, LOL if you believe that, you'll believe anything.
"Nothing good ever lasts forever" is what people tend to say. Feeling that the good moments come and leave so quickly. But just like anything else, the good moments can’t stay the same or else they’d turn into stagnation. You’d be stuck in attachment. The good also has to evolve for it to stay good. Which really means that we’ve only learned to see parts of our daily growth as good and the rest we still see as a struggle. Remember that to get to the aspects we consider to be good, we had to work through everything else. And because what we did resulted in good, that means that everything before it was also part of that good. Always remember, the good in our lives doesn’t just come, it has to be allowed to evolve. In evolution there is effort applied to the changes. But we often see effort as work as opposed to something good. We tend to define the good as moments when we’re not putting in effort and we relax. Or we define good as moments of full joy and agreement with friends or loved ones, etc. But the work we put in to get us to those moments was also part of the good.. After all, it’s what brought forth the fact that we’re now experiencing it’s positive outcomes. What it comes down to is “Good” is all about what we define it to be. And “Good” must always change and if the same moment lasted forever it wouldn’t be good anymore - it would be attachment. Life is about the constant growth and the journey of becoming more every day. It as a whole is always good, if you realize that the whole process and evolution is part of that good.
Are you ready to create the good you want in your life? Are you ready to let go and step into new "good" or "amazing"? Message me and let's talk. 🙏

Today I turned 25. If anything I think a birthday serves as a point in time where you can reflect on what happened over the past year. Exactly like a new year’s day. Since my birthday is in July I guess this is a little like a mid year review. 🤷🏻♂️
Cliche (cos everyone says it) but so much has happened since this time last year. Made new friends, and also lost some. I celebrated my birthday with a few friends - mostly the same one - for the past couple of years, but now they are literally nowhere to be found. Never managed to find out what happened but they are just gone (almost like they’ve been snapped out of existence by Thanos). But the new friends have been great too. Life goes on, and I always try to move on and do my best with what I have.
Growing up I guess I was somewhat competitive, but the past year or two I just didn’t care that much anymore. Used to think that I’d be going places by the time I turned 25. Little did I know I’d be walking away from most things that I used to dream of. Going after top job in a professional world used to be all I cared about. These days - if I could help a friend land their dream job with what I know from my experience I’d be more than happy.
I’ve been struck by a lot of things outside my control, and all I’m hoping to do these days is not lose sight of what I cherish most. I had days where I was completely bedridden and had a lot of time to reflect. Losing myself (cliche) is probably the one single thing I’m afraid of. Imagine - if you were a tennis player but one day couldn’t physically play anymore, where would you even begin to make peace with yourself?
In nutshell, I went rogue and have been trying to live everyday as if it were my last (but without going financially bankrupt in a day or two). So much has happened, and it’s been one hell of a year. I’m not very optimistic about my own future but whatever hahah 🌄✌🏻😎
Today's thought is inspired by the great #madiba since it's #NelsonMandelaInternationalDay
So why should we live a lesser life? Why not live the dream called life to it's fullest? What stops you from going that extra mile and chase your dreams?
The 🌞 lies beyond that huge 🗻 you get a high by riding a 🌊 and Storm chasers do live to tell incredible tales 🌀
Last Hike before we departed Anchorage. Sure didn’t seem long enough. Notice the smoke from the swan lake fire and the 90 degrees drying out the flowers making everything combustible. The white stuff isn’t snow but cotton wood. There is an insane amount of cotton wood 🤯

You were born with a purpose.
No one can take that from you.
..but if you’re human, there will be days when the doubt creeps in and shakes you.
“How do I build from here?” “Is this really the right path?” “Am I right for this role?” “Will I ever be taken seriously?” “Am I actually capable of being a leader, let alone a great one?”
Coming out of the craziest sh*t storm of a year (God help me), I’ve battled every single one of these questions and at many times, with tears. The burden of feeling inadequate, fluctuations in my health, having my heart broken, losing a dear friendship, being dealt a fat “guilty by association” card among peers, (that’s a real thing btw- mom was right when she didn’t want you hanging with the wrong crowd in school, lol), learning to be comfortable alone (update; loving it), and combating the [normal] list of insecurities most women face internally on the daily... it’s been a wild ride but a heck of a learning experience!
I can proudly say I’ve come to know a whole new level of inner peace, gratitude for my life, and passion for my purpose through it all. ♡
I stand taller today and I know you can too.

Hola CDMX! So far I’ve broken the curtain rail at my Airbnb, cycled 13km and tried four different kinds of taco with @eltacoclub. It’s definitely been love at first bite. ❤️ Had to wait for the Mexican equivalent of DPD to move before getting this shot. 😂 #kristabeltravels#sezane#sezanelovers
Some places don’t need words to speak for them. This was one of those for me. Just a few snaps we got upon arriving just as the sun was still hitting the peaks. Definitely a morning I won’t soon forget. Looking forward to sharing a few more captures in the weeks to come.

Only one place to end our time in the Canadian Rockies—Moraine Lake.
Headed up to Alaska this morning, pretty psyched!

I think the water might be falling for me 😂
Just another classic Jorden selfie for your feeds, please affirm me through positive comments as my self esteem relies on it. Thank you! 👌🏼 #whatheck 🧡
Yesterday’s afterwork escape. We went in the hopes of witnessing an amazing sunset with orange and pink hues painting the sky. Instead, we witnessed increasingly dark clouds and a horrible thunderstorm on our drive back home. Life isn’t always what you expect it to be, but sometimes the unexpected turns out to be even better 🤩 #alpineprincess 📷: @mancapolovsak

Camping with friends

We took the boat out to one of my favorite islands in the bay (if you know you know) and got treated to a phenomenal sunset. Countless memories here. As a kid I would spend all day catching minnows in this saltwater stream and digging razor clams in the muck in the far pond. In high school it was the go to island for cookouts and island camp outs. Now I take photos and complain about the bugs.

It’s amazing to explore Hawaii, the roads brings you to the beach or to the mountains. What would you choose? @alohilaniresort
