If you learn to create the right climate in your body, mind, and emotion, your health, wellbeing, and joy – everything will be taken care of.
If we are to endorse a “perfectly imperfect” motto for life, we must accept the truth of who we are, where we are, how we are ... all without excuses that justify the circumstance of our physical, spiritual, or emotional selves. And it is completely within reason to come to such a realization inside a tent.

Repost from @emergingeye First Freeze.... Met up with @waterfalls_nw and @_justinbarrow for an adventure that will have to be conquered another time! Headed out to the eastern Gorge, (too far outta my element) up several hundred feet with steep drop offs and opened-faced slopes! I was totally not feeling this one but kept going anyway until we reached a spot that was just too sketch for my liking! And we decided to head back. I really don’t like that Eastern Gorge type terrain, I’m a forest wolf 🌲🐺🌲 not a mountain goat 🐐🙈🐐. So Plan B... We made our way to lush, gloomy, refreshing ever so beautiful Gifford Pinchot 💚🌲💚. It was so welcoming scaling these slopes with trees and ferns, and trekking the ice ice cold waters! (My comfort zone). I advise anyone adventuring to know your limits and DON’T do nothing you’re really not comfortable with! So here’s the first of four beautiful Falling Waters from our adventure. More coming soon... 🌲❄️💦😎💦❄️🌲 • • • • #livewashington #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #washingtontrails #artsyheaven #cascadiaexplored #ourplanetdaily #pnwdiscovered #FatalFrames #waterfall #exploretocreate #fantastic_earth #earthexperience #ig_color #main_vision #chasingwaterfalls #greettheoutdoors #wildernessculture #canon_photos #earthoutdoors #theglobewanderer #compassoutdoors #allbeauty_addiction #createcommune #wonderful_places #longexposure_shots #beautifuldestinations

Someone call a tow truck, I need a tow
A month ago I told someone I wanted to start praying more in expectation—thanking God for what he was going to do in situations without knowing what, when or how—but trusting it would be good. And I really did. I felt stress and anxiety I’d been packing on for the last 8 months begin to slide off . . But I got blindsided. My gaze shifted when I saw waves coming at me that looked like walls of water. The kind you see coming, but can never quite out-swim. All you can do is dive under. The force knocks you in somersaults, and drags your feet away from the sand . . I kept my head above water, but you can only be beaten by the same waves and dragged down so many times, before you stop fighting and begin to drift. Soon you’re being pulled out to sea . . Everything felt like it was floating away. If my feet touched ground even a moment, I started gathering up all my burdens again. It took all my energy to drag them. I was terrified of losing what might sink . . Just this week I saw posts from 3 friends in 3 different states (who I don’t think know each other) all with the same verse. Strangely, it’s from Isaiah 44, the same chapter a group of friends and I read in a coffee shop last week: . . “I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 . . Another friend came up to me this week, wrapped her arms around me without context, and said in Spanish, “God’s not finished with you yet.” It wasn’t until her tears and I started to shake, that I realized how discouraged I’d been. . . The same night, another friend said, “If anyone is discouraged, I want you to know He’s not done. It’s not over. There’s more to come.” . . Maybe you’re doing fine; riding the waves. But wherever you find yourself, I hope you know it’s true, He isn’t done yet. He’s doing something new. Your feet will find level ground again, and He’ll cut a road where there wasn't one before. . . I want to remind my prayers who pulls me from the depths and puts oceans beneath my feet; who will lead me forward, to tread on higher seas than these . . 📷: @drybednarz
A dream I can’t escape.
The lil one 🖤
I explored my way to Explorer Falls today! It’s a short and sweet hike pretty close to Seattle with great rushing water views, highly recommended to anyone who’s looking for a fun and quick getaway during the day! Plus it gave me a chance to continue messing around with my long exposure app. Can’t get enough of shots like this.
Beneath blue skies.
Happy holiday 🤪😊
Seasons Greetings🌟
I think my favorite time of the day is right at dawn. There is a certain sense of clarity that can only be felt when looking at the sun crest over the horizon!
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved)” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:1-5‬ ———————————————— While man was created in God’s image. It did not last. Human dignity was quickly marred by depravity which is the presence of sin. The ancient Hebrew word translated as “sin” is actually an archery term. It means “to miss the mark” or “to fall short of the goal”. When we disobey God, we miss the mark of His intended purpose for our live. We fall short of God’s plan. In the verse above, it talks about it talks about how we have fallen for sin. Satan has deceived us to follow this “course of this world” by following our flesh and our minds. Sin is like a virus that has infected every person. While God created human beings as “good” and with wonderful capacity to know Him, enjoy Him, serve Him and love Him, sin distorted who we are. The result of our sin is separation from God in this life and divine judgement for our sin in the next. There is nothing we can do to change ourselves or save ourselves. Only Someone from the outside of this sinful world can save us. Only by God’s grace we are saved.
first ascent. frozen skogafoss. iceland. Watching these ice climbers climb on a frozen waterfall was a truly amazing. I talked to them about the climb and they informed me it was a first ascent! I was stoked to be in the right spot at the right time.
