마냥 기분이 좋았던 이유는
천상의 비경을 감상하기에 알맞은
맑디 맑은 하늘 때문이였을지도

Don’t mind me... I’m just over here reminiscing about summertime and mornings in the mountains. ☺️
I’ll have you know that I DID get out on a snowy winter hike recently. It was beautiful and it felt good to be out there... BUT, summer will always have my heart.
How have your winter adventures been so far? ❄️ Are you livin’ it up or just trying to get through it? #mymountaintherapy

< #sponsored > Knowing that I had a tumbler of @drinknutrient vitamin coffee ready for me in the morning was what truly got me out of the bed and ready for my crazy commute and long days. In becoming more aware of how I really needed to to take better care of myself and introducing a more nutritious diet into my everyday routine, I really had a “come to Jesus” moment of why these important things were neglected in the first place.
While @drinknutrient’s vitamin coffee issss so yummy and so easy to make, I had to truly unpack why it was coffee that got me out of bed, why the pick me up and not the excitement for the day? Y’all I was BURNT OUT. I was trying to juggle anything and everything with the mindset that if I wasn’t doing something then I wasn’t being productive or I was letting someone down. A long commute, full-time school, work, trying to juggle rock climbing, assuming new projects to jump-start my career, and balancing community involvement I was just completely thrown. •
I had to really breakdown what self-care meant to me. I also truly had to learn that sometimes you can get burnt out by even doing things that you like and it’s okay to take a break. For me self-care looked like meal-prepping on Monday’s before work to have multiple meals and not just eating one big meal a day, reading a book, saying no to obligations that would be too much, and taking a break from climbing to name a few. I had to debunk the myth in my head that if I’m resting then I’m not being productive. I also had to acknowledge that it’s okay to ask for help. It was okay for me to ask for time off from projects outside of work and school that I couldn’t juggle at the time. And it was okay for me to put myself first. This inner work was hard and self care for me may look different than to others. But I truly hope you get to take time to breathe, rest, recharge, and refuel. In a world that thrives so hard off of our continuous labor, you truly deserve it.

Horribly restless night but still got 9 hours. My sport bra was uncomfortable, I had to pee a lot bc I am fasting again, the cats wanted to sleep on me and that caused cramps... but still glorious sleep achieved
Decided after our hikes today we are heading home. Forecast is rain most of the day tomorrow followed by 2 nights in lower 20s. I don't want to have to deal with wet gear especially when really cold and without hiking boots
Hoping next week is promising. A lot of work for me to do packing up. I was mentally packing in my head - about how to do it. It isn't easy with 4 cats - with 2 you have to keep an eye on
Alas. We got one night and hopefully hae a good couple of hikes...but first... coffee
What to do when all the wood is damp? Get to the good stuff in the middle!
A “one stick fire” is a great skill to have, and one that when done regularly helps keep your knife and firefighting skills sharp.
pic one show batoning the stick down into smaller sizes creating kindling and fuel.
Pic two shows a feather stick being created to act as tinder. A good feather stick actually works as self contained tinder,kindling and fuel as it thickens along its length.
Pic three shows the ignition with fire steel.
Pic 4 we have a one stick fire from wood that was damp to the touch on the outside!
