NO KEY - PUSH TO START

Which do you find more difficult: Doing the hard work or facing yourself when you don't? πŸ€” Consider your answer, and then without judgement - today, tomorrow and every day thereafter - take action to speak, act, think and live with your eyes & heart wide open. πŸ‘€ πŸ’“ Regardless of how close you feel to having all your πŸ’© together or not, the reality for everyone is quite simple ... β€œIt’s important to figure out who you’re not, in order to figure out who you are.” - @jayshetty Live for you - the REAL you. #motivation #casseffect #workout #reflect #bodybuilding #pulldowns #theEmpowered #mindsetmonday @empowerconditioning #flex #exerciseprograms #weighttraining

πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Progress ----------------------- Perfection πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Look friends, I could spend time writing another long-form post about how much change has happened, and how we all have an infinite amount of opportunities to create the reality we desire/ deserve (we do!) All the while, acknowledging that it will likey be hard and messy and often feel really heavy (it will!) But - inherently - you KNOW all that. What I want you to focus on, is movement - #movement with awareness. Yup, whether it's forward, up or down or backward it's #progress. Does that sound counter intuitive? Good! 🀘 because when we reframe our thoughts - we harness the power to reframe the results. #mindsetiseverything #progressoverperfection #swipeleft⬅️ #fitnesshike #familytime #thankyou #theempowered #turtlemountain #casseffect #manitoba #climb #nextlevel #ropeclimb #loveyourself #lobeyour #livefullout #getuncomfortable #summit πŸ“ΏπŸƒ

Now you see me; now you don't ... Peek-a-boo! πŸ™ˆ Why can't that game be as hilarious for anyone over the age of 5? πŸ˜‚ #FunFact, as a child I thought I was really good at hide & seek. So, while one of my parents counted, I believed that simply hiding my eyes (even if I was standing in the middle of the yard) was enough to be "hidden" ...πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Hahah - yeah, I'm glad that I learned that isn't quite the case 😜 & I swear that I'm A LOT better at hiding now 😬. So, remember - wherever you are right now (emotionally, mentally, physically) has the potential to shift. Consider the following, "In the absence of all of your concerns, what becomes possible?!" - @petercroneofficial ... Happy long weekend, friends!! πŸ₯³

There's #happiness, and then there's ice cream🍦 ... and THEN ... there's @aliceandbrohm 🀀!! I had no clue what I was missing and now, I can't wait until my next trip to the #westcoast -- In the meantime, I've got an #idea πŸ’‘ Alice&Brohm in the Prairies? πŸ˜˜πŸ™ Say yes!! 🏷️ TAG your fave LOCAL gems in the comments below.

No plan πŸš«πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ No problem Haha! πŸ™ˆ If you know me at all, this has rarely, if ever, been a mantra I'd accept. So, if you're reading this, calling B.S. - hold tight. 😘 Yes, I appreciate high levels of order and clarity, and most of all - I often expect to maintain a sense of control. And truthfully, these elements are still very much a part of me ... The difference now? Thanks to a ton πŸš› of internal and external factors & on-going, hard AF work, I enjoy the chaos much more freely. This genuine smile (with my crew in the background) is brought to you by an 11km out & back hike to #RummelLake with 2 of my momma friends and 4 kiddos under the age of 10. 🐒🐒🐒🐒 We came into the day with one focus (prepared as best we could), pivoted when needed; engaged a unified front, laughed, told stories, dried tears, carried littles, fed snacks, sang songs, peed in the bush, and πŸ’―% had an awesome time!! Release those (deep seeded) #expectations; say YES to #adventure & #BeHereNow. You never know what opportunities your life is ready to present for you. 😳🎁 ... 😏🀘 #motherhoodunplugged #mountaingirls #momsrocks #carmellasocial #engafinelodge #scavengerhunt #alberta #goldenpencilaward @carmellasocial #rockymountains @mountengadine #selfaware #mentalhealth #canadaathlete

October 1st - fall is here ya'll πŸ‚πŸƒ The mountains ⛰️ are already sprinkled with gold as #larch season arrived in the rockies a few weeks ago. So, while there may only be a few more days to witness this visual transition in all its glory, the shift is transcendent!✨ As I stood in this spot, staring into the colour-changing vastness (being extra thankful to have beat the massive crowds), I suddenly recognized my unique opportunity. Any guesses? 😏 Inhale the future, exhale the past.🧘 Come on - who's with me?!! πŸ™Œ βš“ #BeHereNow πŸ“ΏπŸƒ

Staring at my watch ⌚ like I can force time to tick faster πŸ˜…β³ ... "Be patient!" I'll tell myself next ... but we all know that's much easier said than done. I will be the first to admit guilt in the endless pursuit of better & better; faster & faster. πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’¨ At one point my in my life, it was literally my job ☠️ to prove my value by being #faster and #better. (If we are being honest, I think a lot of careers fall into this pattern). Along the way, however, I gathered a lot more than πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ accolades; I, thankfully, also got some deeper insight into the human condition. πŸ™ No matter who we all percieve to be up against (a superior, a coworker, the haters, our partner, time, scoreboard or the world) the fact is, we are ALL really only at odds with ourselves. πŸ€”πŸ€― So, why do we fight so damn hard? Why do we fall so easily into the trap of otherness and comparative B.S.? What can we do to get through it? My thought - the trick is learning to find comfort in the discomfort. There is infinite strength in no longer pretending that it's easier to seem "fine", but instead to speak up when we need help. To ask the hard questions & to actually listen to the answers. To reach out and create #authentic #connections to the world around us; to take deep breaths, to look into each other's eyes, to love, to lose, to try again, and no matter who you are or where you are from, take the time to stop 🚦and go deep (...even deeper) inside to do the hardest, most uncontrollable work of all - #heal our hearts and souls. β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ€ŽπŸ–€πŸ€ If you made it this far into this #storytime caption, welcome to the other side 😘 - I believe in you (even when you don't). I readily admit that people, situations, and the world can be real 🀬 a-holes, but no one is getting out of this life alive. πŸ€“ So, focus on shifting from just going through the motions to waking up every single day and choosing to do more than just survive. Play full out - for yourself & the version of yourself you actually want to be. Yes - no matter where you are on the path - you really CAN have it all. πŸ“ΏπŸƒ #BuiltNotBorn

Can you believe it?? I renewed a romance this summer! 😍 Actually, come to think of it, I have a few repeat love ❀️ interests going on.🀭 Firstly, I rekindled my passion for #writing, I'm also dating #photography with a critical eye. I tapped back into my passion for #painting (thx again @taytayski & @therayzer ), I'm enthralled with how f'in beautiful #nature is, and I've developed a massive crush onπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ’¨ #trailrunning. 🀯 😬 What has YOU feeling light hearted and giddy these days? πŸ“ΏπŸƒ SHARE IN THE COMMENTS.
