🎉📣 NEW EPISODE IS LIVE! 📣🎉 Over the holidays I had the chance to chat with @hazel_findlay about her life in climbing, her side-hustle as a performance coach, and her approach to the psychological side of climbing and life in general. I learned a ton from Hazel, and I'm sure you will too. Link to the episode is in my bio!

This is Oregon as I had always imagined it before moving here: stormy skies, and stunning scenery.
I have not been disappointed.

“When you love a flower, you water it daily.” Personally, I’m someone who doesn’t enjoy when someone buys me bouquets. Definitely it’s a nice gesture but I would love it way more if someone doesn’t give me already dying flowers to express their love or goodwill. Bouquets are way more expensive as compared to a pot of flowers which will essentially last a lifetime. You’re not killing any pretty flowers and the person who receives it remembers your love every time they look at its blooming flowers. Now who’s winning at life? 😉
Nice to be home after on and off for the whole year, 2019 will be again full of travels and I’m ready to embrace all the uncertainty that comes with an opportunity and see where it takes me 😁✨

It’s that weekly connection time 🙌🏼 what are you guys up to today, where are you, what are you feeling, whatever you want to share, share! ☺️
Come, sit on my rock couch...
It’s quite hard to take photos in The House on the Rock... which is probably best because it’s something to be “experienced” and not so much photographed.

If you'd follow me on stories, you'd see that I've jumped on the #10yearchallenge bandwagon. Let's take a walk down memory lane ⏮️
Some advice I wish I could give to my younger self
1️⃣ I wish I had a much healthier lifestyle, because honestly, the best thing you can invest on is health. Healthy habits you start forming now will pay dividends 10, 20, 30, 40 years from now. And it is never too late to start ❤️
2️⃣ I wish I had known that forgiveness sets you free. Don't let unmet expectations, conflicts or failures hold you back from moving forward in life. Instead of wasting energy dwelling on anger, resentment and disappointment, learn to let these setbacks roll off your back 😉
3️⃣ I wish I had more patience with myself instead of always being in a damn hurry to cross off every checkbox in society's life plan. I was obsessed with doing more of everything faster and because of my impatience, I was involved in several car accidents, said things I wish I hadn't and had been in relationships with people I don't love 💔
What would you tell yourself if you could turn back time? 🤓

Story time: while on my honeymoon a couple years back, @wmaldives , I was getting ready to do my advanced certification courses for scuba. I had to go see on-site doctor on the island because he needed to “clear” me since I have type 1 diabetes even though I had written letter from my doctor saying I was more than capable of diving. So I went in, handed letter, told him I’ve been diving for years then he looked at me and said no, you can’t go. I instantly begin to tear up and say no, and that I should be able to go. Well he decided to ask me to step on the scale.... then he looks at it and he rudely says “get off.” Then he steps on it & starts to yell at me and say see you weigh more than me while grabbing his stomach. He takes me back into a room & starts to do a health check and then begins to ask me if I workout and what I eat. I said I workout 6 days a week and eat great and he looks at me and says it doesn’t seem like that. (Btw I don’t have type 2 diabetes which is caused by being overweight, I have type 1 which you get by it being hereditary or by unknown reasons to your pancreas just failing so my weight had no bearing in this) Ok, so I start tearing up and my husband still isn’t back. I start getting rude and he says fine, you can go, only if you come back after to do another check. I said fine, grabbed the paper, & ran out. My husband saw me running out and asked what was wrong, when I told him we immediately went to management. A day after telling my story, management called us and thanked us because they had a group meeting with all staff and after they heard my story, some women came forward and shared that this same man had made inappropriate remarks & had tried making passes on these women daily. I’m sharing this story so we remember that people can be horrible or hurtful or don’t accept you for who you are but when they go low, you go high. This incident is a big reason I wanted to be an advocate for body positivity and let people know that being happy starts with loving & embracing who you are and standing strong even in the face of evil like this. So here I am rocking this dress, showing my cellulite, & saying fuck you to assholes like that. 🖕🏼
Ich bin jemand, der sich sehr leicht übernimmt. Ich kann nicht Nein sagen und fühle mich dann sehr schnell unter Druck gesetzt. Das wiederum versetzt mich in Dauerzustand Stress. Bis vor ein paar Monaten, war ich so „busy“, wie man es heutzutage nennen würde, dass ich sogar an den meisten Wochenenden arbeitete. Fulltime Job, Uni und nebenbei noch einen fulltime Blog gleichzeitig zu jonglieren, ist praktisch unmöglich. Viel Freizeit hatte ich damals nicht. Wenn ich unterwegs war, wenn ich auf Reisen war, habe ich trotzdem gearbeitet. Irgendwann sagt der Körper dann von selbst Nein. Man kann einfach nicht mehr. Schluss. Ich musste also gezwungenermaßen kürzer treten. Fulltime Job weg, Uni weg und was blieb war der Blog und viel verreisen. Jetzt hänge ich mich voll in den Blog hinein und arbeite nebenbei als Freelancerin für andere. Mache meine eigenen kleinen Projekte und merke, wie meine Wochen sich wieder füllen. Aber dieses Mal ist es anders. Auch wenn ich Stress habe, ist es eine gute Fülle. Keine Überhand nehmende, erschütternde, lawinenartige Fülle. Meine Wochen sind zwar vollgepackt, dafür sind meine Wochenenden jetzt frei. Das muss sein. Ich bin meinem Freund und unserer „Fernbeziehung“ für genau das dankbar. Die Wochenenden sind heilig, denn nur an den Wochenenden können wir wirklich Zeit miteinander verbringen. Also bleibt von Freitagabend bis Montagmorgen der Laptop zu und das Handy so gut es geht aus. Mails auf dem Handy habe ich schon lange nicht mehr und ratet mal: Das war die beste Entscheidung, die ich je getroffen habe. Wenn das Handy einen Tag aus bleibt und der Laptop ein Wochenende lang zu, geht die Welt davon nicht unter.
