Take up space

Hey folks!

This post is different from my normal ones. It’s not organized, or a story, or a hike recap. Simply, this post is my thoughts. A topic that has been on my mind lately, and one I’ve been attributing much mental energy to, is space. Specifically, our human space and existence.  I’m using this post as a sounding board if you will.

Take up space.

Own your space.

Embrace your space.

Stop making yourself small.

Stop hiding.

Stop minimizing your worth, your being, your existence.

You’re existence has a purpose.

Honor that. Honor the universe.

The dust and particles which comprise your being.

They have purpose. You were created by the universe.

Take up the space the world handed you.

Grow and cultivate your being in this space.

You have permission.

Be yourself.

Be real.

Be raw.

Embrace all of your fears, insecurities, internal and external ‘flaws’.

Own your dreams, goals, aspirations.

Manifest the absolute shit out of them.

Own your space.

Own your raw human power.

Be a force.

Tidbits of inspiration

Hello friends 🙂

It’s Friday. Last night I climbed for a bit and I’ll be honest I’m fairly wiped out physically today. Mostly to being out late/lack of sleep, but it was worth it no doubt. Good news, hiking tomorrow! All I really want to be doing today is gallivanting up a mountain, so in response to that I’m choosing to write a short and sweet post this morning with some inspirational quotes, and mountain pictures.

“Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive and go silent. Some people survive and create. Everyone deals with unimaginable pain in their own way, and everyone is entitled to that, without judgement. So the next time you look at someone’s life covetously, remember…you may not want to endure what they are enduring right now, at this moment, whilst they sit so quietly before you, looking like a calm ocean on a sunny day. Remember how vast the ocean’s boundaries are. Whilst somewhere the water is calm, in another place in the very same ocean, there is a colossal storm.”
―  Nikita Gill

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom” ― Viktor E. Frankl

“It’s a beautiful thing to have lungs that allow you to breathe air and legs that allow you to climb mountains, and it’s a shame that sometimes we don’t realize that that’s enough.” ― Honalle

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ― Rumi

“There’ll always be something else. Another obstacle to overcome. More danger on the horizon. That is life. But there’s more to living than conquering mountains and coming out victorious in every fight. Enjoy the view. Relax once in a while. Your success is meaningless without joy.”
― Beau Taplin

“Because we have such a deeply grooved conditioning to reject and condemn ourselves, particularly in this culture, I find that emphasis on the word “acceptance” is central in healing. It brings our attention to the possibility of saying yes to what we are experiencing in the moment, and counteracts the conditioning to push away what feels unpleasant or intense or unfamiliar.” — Tara Brach

“Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.” ― Beau Taplin

“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.” – Ram Dass

Go get em’ tiger.
