  • You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant action of someone else. Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence! ✨

  • I don’t remember when I started to triple check the locks on my doors. When I stopped riding in elevators. When I started to plan my days so that I was home before dark. ⁣
⁣
I’m not sure when I started to sit only with my back against a wall. My eyes on the exits. ⁣
⁣
I remember a semi truck hurtling towards me on an icy highway. Hitting me sitting in the passenger side. I don’t remember getting out. Don’t remember waiting for help. I remember seeing the back of my jacket in the ambulance. Wondering if I was dead.⁣
⁣
I remember feeling nauseous and panicked every time I had to ride in a car. Clutching the seatbelt for dear life anytime we passed a truck. I felt it in my skin — out of control. ⁣
⁣
I’ve spent the 20+ years since that day trying to get it back. Control. Setting up situations that I can either control or leave easily. On the road and in life. ⁣
⁣
20+ years being embarrassingly reminded again and again — and then beautifully reminded by nature — I am not in control. ⁣
⁣
The sun is going to rise. The seasons will change. We can’t control the outcomes. We can only move through it gracefully. Find a new way of seeing things. ⁣

  • Taking photos in autumn has been the best! There’s so much colour, all trees look fantastic and editing those photos has made me so very happy .. unfortunately leaves are starting to fall and everything will soon start to look colourless and bleak 😢 On a more positive note, Christmas is approaching so hopefully we get some snow 🥶❄️

  • The funny thing about Instagram is that, for me anyways, it's a visual community that thrives on words. The story is what's important. And words matter. Like they told you in kindergarten, they can help or hurt. ⁣
⁣
I used to be known for being mysterious. Private. Secretive, even. I kept everything in. Didn’t let my cards show. ⁣
⁣
Now I basically journal every morning on the internet. Weird, I know. I say it all the time, but there’s power in honesty. Truth telling. Vulnerability. And despite what it looks like, I’m still really bad at it. I work at it every day because I’m still that bad at it. ⁣
⁣
But words are important. So I’ll keep trying. ⁣
⁣
With that in mind, I’m excited to share the first article in a regular column I’m writing for my friends @roam I’ll link it in my bio and story and would love for you to read it. Thanks for the support 💜

  • “Agreeing to things just to keep the peace is actually a trauma response. When you do this you’re disrespecting your boundaries. No more making yourself uncomfortable for others to feel comfortable. You run your life, take up space & use your voice.”
These words hit me like a brick wall a while ago, so hopefully they can help atleast one of you as much as they did me💜 Back from a little break, life got crazy, what’s new😆

I’m forever searching for clarity. For that moment that will change everything. The a ha. Innately I know that life is a string of small moments of what we mostly mistakenly believe to be clarity. What we think is the big life change. Now that I ____ or when I finally just ____ then everything will come together.⁣
⁣
Only to find out later it was all just part of the process. A fraction of something much greater. The things we couldn’t see at the time. Can’t easily explain or quantify. Just the vague sense of something. It’s happening, but what is it. ⁣
⁣
I’m different than I was one year ago. One month ago. One week ago, even. But where is it all leading? ⁣
⁣
I read that Mother Teresa once said she wouldn’t pray for clarity, only trust. I try to live by this every day. Trust. I don’t need to see the through line — I know it’s there because I feel it when I stray too far away. ⁣
⁣
So I’ll keep following. Keep trusting.

  • Climbers are just people. We may appear to be bold as we climb steep rock faces, and sometimes we are - but we still experience fear. We still doubt ourselves. We still question if we are good enough. ⠀
⠀
Being a climber doesn’t mean that you are unafraid. It doesn’t mean that you can do pull ups or have bulging biceps. It doesn’t mean that you have to aspire to climb 5.14. ⠀
⠀
Being a climbers means a lot of different things to different people. ⠀
⠀
Over the next few months we are going to be highlighting different women from the climbing community who inspire us in hopes to highlight how different climbing can look to each person. ⠀
⠀
If you feel like you have a unique perspective to be shared please send us a note. We would love to share your experience in climbing. ⠀

  • One of my favorite moments from this traveling this year, watching the sun set high over Lake Wanaka. It’s not often that I show my face in front of the camera, so I thought I’d share 5 facts about me that you might not know ✨

1. I’m 24 years old 💁🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. I grew up in Southern California in a small surf town called San Clemente 🏄‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. I studied pre-med in college at USC for two years, until I fell in love with photography. My dreams of becoming a doctor and my passion for biology suddenly shifted to the arts where I pursued a degree in Design 👩‍🎨 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. I moved to Switzerland over two years ago, without any family, friends, a place to live, or even a job. It was by far the biggest risk I’ve ever taken and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made 🇨🇭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Besides photography, I work a full time job as a UX Designer📱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s something interesting or special about you? Tell me below in the comments 😊

  • Came out of our eighth and final week of Compassion Cultivation Training this evening. Reflecting on the many lessons learned from my cohort of lovely compassionate individuals, especially the lesson of common humanity - a key theme talked about every week during training.

It only takes brief, intentional moments to realize we are all in it together - good, bad, and ugly - in these we can come to understand that “just like me” everyone else wishes to live a life free from suffering. I’m so very grateful for the practices, teachings, and people that re-ground me time and time again into our shared existence, universal unity. 
Meditation is so damn important. Slowing down is so damn important. Because love is the most important thing of all and we can’t experience it if we don’t take time to practice it, share it, and feel it in our own bodies. Love you all 💕✨

Since I was in my early teens, I’ve wanted to come here, and do this. I’ve looked at photos, watched videos of others, and really never thought it would actually happen. ⁣But, it’s been on my vision board. And you know how it goes, when you write it down, the universe puts it in motion✨.

Also, I knew I had to set my expectations to the side, and just 𝐄𝐍𝐉𝐎𝐘 the moment. This morning was filled with smiles, laughs, a few frustrating moments, but it was perfect. 𝘛𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺, 𝘐 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯 𝘉𝘢𝘭𝘪🤙🌊

  • Who's planning to visit Devil's Bridge someday? 😈⁠
⁠
It's a 4.2-mile popular trail outside Sedona, Arizona in the Coconino National Forest. It's the largest natural sandstone arch in the area, and if you visit during the right time of year, the trail will be covered in wildflowers! ⁠
⁠
Just remember to bring a leash for your dog if you bring your furry friends & remember your @11thessential to pack out trash along the way!⁠

(Ps massive thanks to @monascherie for this photo set!!)

  • Most people put their job at the center of their life and arrange everything else around it.

Guess what guys? It’s almost 2020 and times have changed. We have SO many opportunities available today that our parents and grandparents didn’t have when they were our age. The old paradigm that they lived by is all but useless now.

Today we have the ability to design our lives around whatever it is that brings us joy (ahem, NOT our desk job). For me, it’s the beach (which on a higher level represents freedom, my top value). So I plan my week around the weather: if it’s looking like it’ll be a good beach day, I will schedule (or even reschedule) work, Pilates, meetups, etc around my beach time. The other day I moved a doctors appointment because it was forecasted to be 100F 😅 and DUH, I knew I’d wanna be by the water.

What’s YOUR one thing that you want to design your life around? And have you done so yet?

The other day I moved a doctors appointment because it was forecasted to be 100F 😅 and DUH, I knew I’d wanna be by the water.

    What’s YOUR one thing that you want to design your life around? And have you done so yet?

  • I stopped here after hiking goat lake a couple Saturdays ago. Pleasantly surprised with the reflection I got.

  • # tbt probably one of the highlights of my summer. I hiked miles for this one and the amount of joy I received when I beheld this one was off the charts.

  • if your nerve deny you, go above your nerve

this was a hella challenging hike,
and though this photo looks like
a picture perfect moment
of me gazing loftily out into the desert horizon,
i actually had no idea this was being taken.

my knee was aching,
i was sweating bullets,
seeing spots,
was seriously overheated,
and needed a break.

we were hiking deep into the 
backcountry of baja
encountering lots of wild cows,
getting caught in thick bush,
and getting off course often,
trying to follow a satellite map that
we prayed wouldn’t die
before we reached our destination.

it didn’t die,
thankfully,
and when we reached the waterfall
and swimming pool
at the end of the journey it was
worth every sun scorching step.

anyway, 
i share this because
there’s almost always a story behind
each instagram-worthy moment,
and it doesn’t always match what the image portrays.

people aren’t always
so forthcoming on this app,
and i always appreciate a good #realreality post.

so there’s my real reality:
here’s a photo of me on a hike
through an awesome desert landscape
that really kicked my ass. 👍🏻

  • Debating whether or not to just release the hemp dreamlettes without doing a campaign shoot. I love photo shoots and I love creating campaigns for launches of new products and collections. But due to papas work schedule this next week it looks like I might not be able to rock out a campaign shoot as quickly as I’d like so I’m thinking about just putting these little loungewear bralettes up for sale anyways. ⠀
⠀
So what do you think, should I wait until everything is “perfect” before I launch the hemp loungewear or do I just open the flood gates so everyone can get a dreamlette before Christmas? 🥰

  • The path to former fire, Volcán Tromen in Neuquén, Argentina. Along the slopes you can see the hardened and cooled lava flows from its most recent eruption, although I have no idea when that was. If only there was a way to ask this on the internet and get a response in milliseconds 🤔

  • One of my favorite moments from this traveling this year, watching the sun set high over Lake Wanaka. It’s not often that I show my face in front of the camera, so I thought I’d share 5 facts about me that you might not know ✨

1. I’m 24 years old 💁🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. I grew up in Southern California in a small surf town called San Clemente 🏄‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. I studied pre-med in college at USC for two years, until I fell in love with photography. My dreams of becoming a doctor and my passion for biology suddenly shifted to the arts where I pursued a degree in Design 👩‍🎨 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. I moved to Switzerland over two years ago, without any family, friends, a place to live, or even a job. It was by far the biggest risk I’ve ever taken and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made 🇨🇭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Besides photography, I work a full time job as a UX Designer📱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s something interesting or special about you? Tell me below in the comments 😊

  • Even though Ben and I share so much of our lives here on this app, connecting with people ALL around the world, it’s still absolutely terrifying to share REAL parts of ourselves. But we’re lucky enough to have a community on this little app where we can feel safe and accepted, and for THAT we cannot thank you enough!⁣
⁣
You may remember me sharing before that I’m actually a super shy person. But I think it’s a little more complicated than that. Here’s what being “shy” means to me:⁣
⁣
Being shy means I can be intimidated by new people, ESPECIALLY people that I admire in some way.⁣
⁣
Being shy means I value my time in private, and NEED alone time to recharge my batteries.⁣
⁣
Being shy means I’m often very introverted, which means I can be very quiet, but also means I’ve felt at complete harmony when creating, be it painting, writing, or editing pictures and video.⁣
⁣
Being shy means when I do meet new people, it takes me a bit of time to sense if I can trust them or not, after which THE FLOOD GATES CAN OPEN AND MY INNER CRAZY CAN FLOURISH!!!⁣
⁣
Any crazy/shy peeps in the house?⁣
⁣
Here’s to sharing and caring!!⁣
⁣
XOXO⁣
With so much love,⁣
Lauren⁣
