Finding My Femininity

My GP sent me away to ‘embrace my femininity’, not ‘be more feminine’.  I don’t have to wear a dress or apply lipstick.  I just needed to love being me, a unique mix of ferocious tomboy, compassionate sister, fun loving fiancée, empathetic friend and loving daughter.  I am a young woman just learning about self-compassion and embarking on a long pilgrimage towards womanhood. 

I Am Enough

In this moment I realised that despite my fear & vulnerability, there was no where else on earth I would rather be, especially not indoors.  I turned towards the trail and told myself to take just one step.  Then another.  Soon my hands were pumping my thighs, turning my legs into pistons that powered from my greater sense of purpose. 

Adventure The Answer to Getting Out of a Rut

It happens to all of us. Sometimes, we just fall into a rut and life feels flat, or worse, painful.                  We can start to wonder why things feel like they're harder than they should be.                                  Here's a little reminder that by simply getting outside, you have the power to change your circumstances. 

The Lessons in Adventure

There is no question that adventure offers the connection and ultimate thrill many of us constantly yearn for. But there is much more to adventure than the adrenaline rush, the opportunity for a new challenge or exploring new places. Along with adventure, comes a means of education, happiness, and inspiration. With every new adventure, we have the opportunity to learn something great about life.



Why do you Adventure?

Adventure can be many things. It can be taking on a new experience, regardless of the outcome. Or seeing the world from a different perspective, even if you’ve seen it a million times before. Maybe to you it's choosing to see the beauty in the extreme? Or do the ordinary differently? Me I'm drawn to explore.  I find it strangely comforting when I'm alone with my a backpack on the other side of the world having to embrace whatever it is that may show up. 

Going the Extra Mile

There are no limits. There are only plateaus; and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them

 Go that extra mile.
