{its about the moments}

i was so lucky to capture this moment. i can almost feel the connection between me and the deer again. i believe that being with nature is the closest we can come to being with God.
i love these moments of connection.

{belief: quite the journey}

tonight i went to my old youth group meeting for the first time since high school... a lot is different but what they believe is the same. and i do not believe that this is a bad thing. it is such a breath of fresh air to know that the religion i once was a part of is still the same.

i have been on quite the journey sense high school. i have discovered things about myself and the world on my own. and during this process i have come to challenge some of the things i believe. i think that this was necessary for me and maybe for everyone. if people are not being challenged by the people and the things around them, than they can not grow.

i do not know everything that i believe, but i do know that i do love that religion allows people to believe in something greater than who they are.

i have within me this desire to know and understand what it means to live completely free, with love, and to be apart of something bigger than who i am.

{be someone's someone}

we are not promised tomorrow, so live your best today. if someone you know a friend is down and at their lowest low, be the one to be by their side. the person that sticks by your side throughout it all, that person is your someone.
so no matter where you might be, be someone's someone.

{Feel the Tide}

LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!
so much meaning.

{Fifty and Falling}

I love the weather right now..
cloudy, the air is cold with no breeze.. so amazing to feel the cold!

I think I enjoy this weather because I can do some real thinking in it. what I mean is that I love to sit with a good book, or go on a great run, or even just a calming walk to think.

It is also nice to bundle up in some sweaters and scarves with a hot cup of tea.

{today's words, tomorrow's tomorrow}

Wisdom: The souls right to breathe.
Life: Your own right to choose.
Mind: A world you create.
Time: Something that should never be wasted.
Truth: What you will find in the innocent and spend your life searching for.

{After the Storm}

This song has such a beautiful message.

I listened to this song today while I was boldering here in Zion. I love the adventure of being here, and living just outside of a national park. I am very sad to leave here in a couple of days, yet as I listen to this song I know that my adventures are not over. I know that I AM going to do amazing things no matter where I may be. I will not live in decay!

This is one of my favorite lines from the song.

"Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

{Sail Away}

This is a sailboat sand castle i made to challenge someone i care for deeply to achieve one of his dreams to sail. This is one of the things i tried to do to show him how much he means to me.

{The Free}

Live free today!

{A Continuous Journey to Discover this World and Myself}

I have been MIA for the past couple of months... so let us catch up..
I have been working in Zion National Park for the past 4 months. It has been a life altering experience. I have done so many new things. I have been living in the adventure of the west and have been loving it. Being in such a beautiful place has aloud me to become so intamite with nature. I have felt the breeze from the cliffs, the power of the mountains from under my feet, and the strength of the rock from the grasp of my fingers. these things have given me life. they have made me discover things within myself that i never knew were there. i love who i have become. apart of me wants to believe that that part of me has always been there and now will never leave. but now my journey has come to a close, i fear that my soul will disappear with my departure. but i force this doubt away and hope for a bright future. i will live in the beautiful moment and soak in the time i have left in my gorgeous sanctuary. i hope i make an impact on this world, in the same way it has impacted me.
