“Him: Then what am I? What is anyone?”
Me: I is the hardest word to define.
Him: Maybe you are what you can’t not be.” - Turtles All The Way Down
It took me a long, long time to find my way. And honestly, I still don’t have it all figured out. I often doubted myself when it came to school, work, and even climbing. Do I belong here? Am I good enough for this? Am I smart enough for this? Do I deserve this? It was easy for me to let the voices in my head, and even the negative voices around me deter me from the path I tried to tay on, making me think that every step was invalid, and undeserving.
First and foremost, I had to learn and understand that I am worth it, that I am my biggest fan, and that I am my biggest supporter. I am in full control of my success, and only I can stand in the way of that. So I refuse to. With that being said though, I am wholly, and entirely grateful for the people in my life who’ve been nothing but supportive, who envisioned my dreams and goals with me, and helped me run straight to them. •
As you will see soon, I have some really cool partnerships and adventures coming up. And I’ve worked hard for them. They are with companies and organizations that align with what I believe in, and I spent a lot of my time talking with them ensuring that my work continues to be authentic, and vulnerable. I also recently made an incredibly huge decision in my life that will result in a major change that I am both extremely excited, and extremely terrified about. As I stated before, I refuse to stand in my own way. I also refuse to let my “comfort zone” bar me from taking chances, and exploring once in a lifetime opportunities. So stay tuned for this crazy adventure, and wild ride that I call my life. I never thought that I’d have such a deep connection, and quite honestly an entire family of people online. I couldn’t ask for better followers, actually friends, within this community. Thank you all.
later grams on repeat over here. I’m on day 7 of my 30 day no-pic-taking-challenge. totally made up for my own personal benefit.😉✌🏾🌿 this space is a reflection of my life + my personal growth: uncurated, nonlinear, disorganized, messy.😊🥰😩 #soulworksoulhealing#latergram#notetoself#justbreathe#roadtrippinghangs
ps 7p and the house is currently a disaster because we are painting the girls room and I’m not heading the project.🤷🏾♀️😭🙄 furniture is everywhere. only half of the walls are painted. I’m taking deep breathes and reminding myself it’s not my problem... until of course it is.😉
pps yesterday over lunch, I asked N to describe her dream room. her: plants, pink, gold.... and maybe some bamboo. okay. wow.🌿✨ and the brainstorming commenced. this morning to home depot we went. ALL. the. pink. paint. chips.🙌🏾 an hour later we walked out with the dreamiest shades of ombré. can’t wait to see how it turns out. the girls are beside themselves. this is the third time we’ve repainted + redecorated their room. the first time they’ve participated. #cocreating
Spend your time with people who make you happy - not with people you have to impress.

“There! The snoot of a pup I shall boop” but really Photo 1 is the point of Mt Tibrogargan that my mind got the better of me and I bailed. So we gapped it and climbed/walked/ran Mt Ngungun to the summit (Photo 2) and finally my favourite photo of the day... my lady @joj0_x (Photo 3) thanks for trying to guide me up Tibro @_javz 😂 #mttibrogargan#glasshousemountains#hiking#mtngungun#fuckedit
This cashew cream dip is SO good and simple, you’re going to look for ways to get it into your mouth faster. It’s a fantastic fruit dip and the spices can be changed up to add cinnamon or pie spice, really whatever you like. This is my dear friend Marianne’s family recipe she shared about 10 years ago and I still enjoy making it today! @sourcefulrd Also, warning, this might be THE cheesiest video to date. I for one was a fan of the low tech miming thing 🤷🏻♀️ but a friend suggested I add music, so, cheerio, happy Friday! 🤓
Cardamom Cashew Cream Dip
1 cup soaked raw cashews (6-8 hrs)
4 medjool dates, pitted
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (or 1/2 beans from a whole vanilla bean pod)
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom, or more to taste
Drain cashews and add to blender. Add enough filtered water just to cover. Add remaining ingredients and blend until nice and creamy.
This tastes even better after being refrigerated. Give and take on the water if you like a different consistency. #purerootskitchen
