"This girl...she knows what she wants and she visualizes seeing it happen. Even though she doesn't know every step she needs to take, she isn't afraid to get started. She doses up on inspiration and positivity every day and believes that she will reach her goals. Whenever she has doubts or worries she surrenders them and trusts that everything will work out the right way, at the right time. This girl is determined to make her dreams come true." 📷 @mdrn.boss with iPhone7
In a must-read article on optimism, @bymariandrew writes, “An optimist sees the glass half-full, we’re told, as though optimism is a personality trait and not a discipline. Confusing optimism for naiveté is one of our greatest cultural misunderstandings.” If you haven’t read the article (in @medium), I highly recommend it. I’m currently in a place where optimism feels particularly challenging, but every day I get up and try again. And every day it’s somehow – despite pain, uncertainty, frustration – worth it. 💗

Took a break from sending invites to my upcoming wellness group and decided to bundle up & take my lunch outside and look at this beautiful view ⛰ ☀️ I love 💕 where I live, 360 degree views of the mountains at all times!!!
I'm so thankful for these 2 right here!
My Grandma and Grandad Gates ❤️
Thank you for making the trip to Syracuse and spending some snowy days with us right before Christmas. It was such a great visit full of joy and family!!
With every day that goes by, I get a little stronger.
A little more focused.
A little more determined.
A little more motivated.
This journey isn’t always easy which is why so many people seek out quick fixes.
But it’s just that, a journey. I’d rather live a life of balance and long-term progress than one where I’m chasing society fads. ✌🏽 It felt so good to get my sweat on this morning. I modified a lot as my body is still not 100% & pressed pause often throughout the 30 minutes (one of the many benefits of at home workouts) 💜
