Who drops everything to make a last minute trip for a single white ribbon ski run?? This girl 🙋🏼♀️
Call me crazy, obsessed, addicted, insane... it all really just translates into the same thing...PASSIONATE.
Day 1 of shred season in the books 🤙🏼 major thanks to @mtroseskitahoe for making it happen!
I believe this has been the best Oregon October to date. Not that that is a scientific assessment or anything 😄 I truly never remember getting so much sunshine deep into autumn before. The artist in me is soaking up the sun and lingering fall tones of the dry golden grass, purple mountains, and the perfect blue skies. And the sunsets we've had lately?!? None of these I take for granted. The rains will set in, and when they do I have these moments of sunshine tucked away into my heart and painted into the details of my paintings to last me through winter. 🌾🌄🏔️😍

Do you ever put so much pressure on yourself to succeed at whatever it is that you’re doing, that it completely paralyzes you? .
I struggle with this daily. .
I fully understand that if I would just chip away at what I’m doing and take one step at a time, I would get to where I want to go....but the vastness & enormity of my goals goes back and forth between making me feel excited & motivated to making me feel stupid for even trying. .
I think most people who are trying to accomplish big things (entrepreneurial, fitness goals, really anything) feel this way & I can at least take comfort in that I’m not the only one. .
What do you guys think? Are you your own worst enemy like I am to myself sometimes? How do you push past it?
You can be both the beauty and the beast.
You can be both powerful and gentle.
You can be courageous and still feel your fear.
You can be loving and fierce. Passionate and endearing.
Despite what you may have heard, you do not have to choose.
So don't be afraid to be the one who shows up with too much energy, too much passion, too much belief and self awareness, and to much love.
Dont be afraid to be a wild, fire breathing dragon who stokes the embers in the lives of people around you to remind them that they still have so much left.
That God is not finished with them yet.
Be the one who leaps before she is ready and one day you will be the girl who stares fear in the face and tells it, "no you will not stop me!"
Be the one who tempers it, falls in love with it, and follows every stomach dropping feeling that reminds you that you are going the right way.

If you’re ever lucky enough for your version of a Shania best friend to come into your life - don’t let them go. She’s the kind of friend that reminds you not to settle for stars when you are deserving of galaxies. That not only help you climb mountains, but move them. The kind of friend that puts you back together when you think you’ve lost all your pieces. I hope your Shania is as amazing as mine. Thanks best friend for everything you do. 💗✨

My thoughts for today #realtalk
Recently, I read an article written by Brené Brown that left my mind blasted. The article is titled “Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind.” In all the ways possible this comparison summarizes some of the challenging situations I face at work and in personal relationships. The article describes a study on how to make more effective leaders in today’s world. The results were overwhelmingly clear. Leaders today “avoid tough conversation, including honest and productive feedback” because it is too difficult to deal with, yet they hold people accountable for their actions. It reveals that many people speak half-truths, and avoid clarity because “we tell ourselves we are being kind”, and don’t want to hurt feelings.
But the fact of the matter is, this action is unkind. It is simply not nice. It is not effective communication in general for that matter.
This article hit home for me because there are people in my life that do this very thing to me. Passive aggressive behaviour, giving me small bits of information expecting me to fill in the blanks with what they want, and overall, being the “nice guy” when in reality I walk away from the conversation confused and sometimes offended and frustrated with how to carry on in the relationship (personally and professionally). In fact, there is one person, in particular, that does this to me all the time and I can finally see that this person is being unkind. I’ve felt it for years, and this study has validated and made sense of my feelings. His actions are unkind. He is not nice to me. I get it. I finally see it. It’s actually a liberating sensation. My eyes are finally open to the treatment I so commonly receive and brush off as normal behaviour. Well guess what? It’s not cool. From now on, I’m going to step up, be brave and ask for clarification. If I don’t get it back, then I know I’m not being treated fairly and I need to make a decision on whether it’s worth continuing in the relationship or ending it.
If you’d like me to forward you the article or have a friend who might also benefit from it, leave a comment below, tag your friend and I will DM you the link. #myottawa

I really can’t get over the fact that we’ve been out boating the last 2 weekends in Portland! This weather has been unreal, I think Portland is one of the few places that global warming will make the weather better. 😅 #swimsuitszn

Just a rant so if you manage to get yourself to read until the very end, I thank you. We are humans first and we are allowed to change... Change our minds, our preferences, change from patterns that no longer serve us . I've seen vegans switch over to eating meat and ballet dancers quit to go back to yoga. Just because you are into CrossFit, it doesn't mean you don't get to enjoy a beer over the weekend. If you are into yoga, gulps, it's okay to be excited about happy hour, in fact, please be my guest. This is your life so please don't let someone else live it for you. Stop being so hard on yourselves and those around you. We are people first and as humans, you get to play around with decisions and your choices. You shouldn't be riddled with guilt . End of rant. #wanderingforwellness#wabisabi photo @virkullar (let's go back please?)

Why do I choose mountains? Because the mountains never judge or discriminate. I choose mountains because every step on a trail is a step to free myself. Free myself of anger, self-doubt, personal situations, anxiety and other emotions that may be holding me back from personal growth.
It’s like once everything has broken me down the mountains were there to build me up again; really showing how small everything is in comparison to the world.
I choose mountains because when my mind is racing the mountains are my place of peace and serenity, my place of quiet and stillness.
I choose mountains because to me mountains are home.
Climbed so many stairs to see the sunset last night. We’re so proud of Ralphie’s little legs for getting through this 6 mile, crazy incline of a hike💪 🐾 👣

I’ve spent today admiring Afghanistan’s snow capped mountains, what a world away from the summer heat in Greece when this pic was taken. Loving the chance to live 2 very different kinds of #vanlife and excited to see how our little van fares in -20 degrees at over 4000m. Wish us luck!!
True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied. – Aadil Palkhivala
As I walk into the unknown I know that He is with me. ▫️
I've realized a lot of things this past few days. Let me share you some..
YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE! That is one of the most used terms from the millenials nowadays but, most of the time it is done with a danger or sin or it hypes us to be free to the point that we no longer care if it's right or wrong. Now, my point here is You Only Live Once so why not use it with a purpose? Use it with every positivity that you can be of great change to others. You can be an instrument for someones life to be changed?
Let us echo the love of God for every human being. That's what my fav Pastor(ECV) always say.
This is just a week starter motivation from your wanderwoman 😉
Again, always remember
You're only one swim away from good vibes
So keep swimming and keep wandering!
God bless wanderers!
I’m beginning to feel a little better, I think. Some of that is just admitting and embracing that my Seasonal Depression has arrived, but also, it’s taking control of the situation to the best of my ability.
Here’s what I’ve done the last two days: I’m waking up to a lightly lit room and birds chirping thanks to my sunrise alarm. I drink water and get the coffee pot going. I do 5-10 minutes on my climbing machine to just get my body moving and help wake me up. Then I hop in the shower (yesterday was just a quick rinse, but this morning I had to wash my mane 💆🏽♀️). After that, I pour a cup of coffee, sit down and turn my Happy “therapy” light on for 15 minutes. Then I’m ready to finish getting ready work and head on out! Breakfast right now is just some oatmeal with walnuts and a banana which I have when I get to work, and that’s also when I take my vitamins.
So ya.... feeling a bit better, but I think it will take a little longer to begin to feel really like myself again. Just gotta keep at it and push through! I hope these posts help some of my fellow Seasonal Affective Disorder friends out there. We’re in this together!

So I said to @meghanyuriyoung, wanna go for a hike while you’re in town? 😊
We woke up at the crack of dawn yesterday, drove out to Whistler, met up with @sarahk.johnson and went for what was probably one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever done... Not so much because of the length but more because of how steep and technical the hike was 😅
My legs are definitely on 🔥 today but man was it worth it! I mean look at the colour of this lake?
Spending a day in nature is truly the best way to catch up with some of your best friends. Days like yesterday make me feel so alive ⚡️
Thanks to @mec for making sure we were all geared up for our adventure (backpack, poles, boots, puffys, etc!).
Now Megs, it’s your turn to take me on an outdoor adventure next time I’m back in Toronto 🙌🏻
what do you think I’m grinning about? 🙂🙃🙂 best answer will be in my caption 🤗 #forgirlswhoride
