Last weekend was filled with SNOW MUCH FUN!!! Mountain time, fab coffee and even better company! 💁🏼♀️ Got to catch up with the girls, my boy Rosco and make new friends as well! Skated on the lakes again, watch #TheDawnWall (which you have to see BTW if you’re an avis climber!), saw the snow sculptures, rediscovered Johnston Canyon 8 years later... Anyway all that to say that Canada is a wonderful place to be and that I love my life and the people (that includes furry friends) in it! ✌🏼& ♥️ Y’all! Hump Day, you’ve made it through half the week! 😁
Hi guys 👋🏻 I haven’t been adventuring much lately...just on the eat, sleep, school, work, repeat train - teaching occasional ski lessons in between. I really miss the mountains. But I know this is just a temporary inconvenience that is trying to intimidate me and push me to quit. Then when self-doubt sets in it can be harsh; crippling at times. But I’m at the point where I want this so bad I’ll do almost anything to get it. I mean, I’m almost 30 and I live with 6 people 😂 .
Don’t let temporary inconveniences push you away from pursuing your dreams and being a goddamn goal digger 💕 .
And on that same note, encourage others around you to push themselves. Because while change is hard, lack of change is even harder because it’s harder to break. Complacency is like quick sand. So if someone is in the midst of making moves to chase their goals, don’t underestimate the power of your encouragement. Every time you tell someone you are proud of them could be the one thing they needed to stop them from quitting. Remember that 🙏🏻
How is it we overlook the power of possibility? 💮
Flowers are beautiful, but what about the bud that has so much potential?
This is you every. single. day.
Go out and be your best today.
Doing whatever it is you do to show up in the world. 💮
I took an @aiare_official avalanche course this week with @nwmtnschool and I had the absolute best time. Skiing and digging pits in the snow are great fun but there's something about internalizing clear structures for reacting to disaster situations that makes my type-A side come ~alive~. I'm a sucker for outdoor safety classes and I'd highly recomend getting as much training as you can, either in classes or via free online resources. There's significant risk inherent to spending time in the mountains and carrying around checklists for how to deal with avalanches, fractured femurs and how to pull people out of crevasses makes it a bit easier for me to let down my hair and stop freaking out about whether anyone is getting hypothermic.

You’ll always wonder what might have happened if you don’t just go...it’s been a while since I’ve gone after it but I’m back! Stronger and more ready than ever. It’s not by accident that I always feel better being outside during my favorite thing 🥳

Feeling very content with where I am in life right now. 💕
Maybe it’s because I’m on a new anxiety med, maybe it’s because I’m slowly and painfully letting go of toxic relationships and moving into friendships that are supportive and more loving than I’ve ever experienced. It could be that I’ve started to slow the hell down and really listen to what people are saying, and to try to put myself in their situation. It could be that I’m actually tuned in and fully listening and not thinking about the rebuttal. Maybe it’s because I am getting older. Maybe it’s all of these things coming together into a big positive cloud that is enveloping my life, and I couldn’t be happier. 📷: @kayleyernst

TODAY WAS HARD. .
I’ll admit - I don’t look forward to working out - in fact some days I dread it, but after I’m done, I never regret it! .
As you may know I struggle with anxiety - and sometimes it’s hard core, like so extreme it makes me short of breath. .
Honestly what helps me the most is working out! There is just something about moving my body and working up a good sweat that makes all the anxiety lift. .
This past week has been killer for me - I’ve had this huge report due at my corporate job and it’s been making my anxiety sky high. .
Every morning I have been working out and it’s been helping me so so much! I honestly don’t know where I would be without it. .
Working out is so much more than the physical game it’s the mental game too! It teaches you to rise to the challenge, to be resilient, to try your best, and to overcome obstacles.
Exercise has changed my life and I know it can do the same for you!! .
Wanna do this thang with me?! I’ve been doing a 20 minute at home workout that has been a total game changer! Comment a heart ❤️ emoji below if ya want more deets!

Some mornings you wake up and hit snooze on the alarm 3 times. You finally wake up because the hope of fresh powder pulls you out of the sheets. The skin track up gets you psyched and you realize it's fresh tracks all day!! Yeeeeehaw! #earnyourturns

💫The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams💫
🦄🦄🦄 Unicorn days exist!! Watched the moon set over Brandywine before it started glowing sherbet orange at sunrise, 20cms overnight fueling that coldsmoke hitting my face. What a morning! #onlyinwhistler@canadianwilderness01
Trying to get a tired dog to sit for a photo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ever planned your day and it turned out opposite but better than you could have ever dreamed of?
On this day I thought I'd wake up, re-watch the last episode of #DearWhitePeople (sidebar, what was that finale?!) then play some Harawa to kick start the day but I ended up meeting n lunching with Members of The County Assembly n as I took one for the gram, I could not help marvel at the fact that: We plan, God laughs!!
We all have our characteristics and so does my girl 🐕. She has very intense habits but the positive outweigh the bad. She’s super loyal. The other day she chose to cuddle with me over food! (Trust me, thats what winning an Oscar must feel like)
I hope you have a dog like her on your side!
Tell me your dogs best and worst habit in the comments!
