@phillmonson - “my parents got down to my level and taught me an important lesson that if everyone took some of this out of the park, eventually there wouldn’t be any left for anyone to enjoy. I reluctantly put the fossilized wood back but took home something more valuable – the lesson of leaving it better than I found it.”

@rachaellynnsimbra goes to some pretty awesome places, when we asked her what motivates her adventures, this is what she said: “I love reconnecting with myself when I interact with nature. When all is said and done and you’re away from work, the daily grind and digital distractions and you’re left with some peaks to bag, fish to catch and a rad motley crew to encourage you along the way, you understand a little bit more of who you are to the core. The views are pretty great too!” Keep crushin’ out there, Rachel! & #findyourwolfpack for a chance to be featured

Summit hugs are the best hugs. Especially on a windy day!
So I don’t usually use skin care products but I’ve been test driving @goelementary for about a week now.
As a tattooed, I know skin, and mine gets pretty dry in the winter. Whether it’s due to skateboarding or hiking in the cold. I also, somehow get acne - I’m 33 btw... ANYWAYS, I’m the week I’ve been using this stuff my face has stayed softer than a cute lil baby neck and my skin’s cleared up. Balances ya out. And the rosemary scent definitely ain’t bad either. Thanks be done my due diligence and I definitely recommend #elementaryskincare

If you're looking for gifts...I will be doing up to 30% off for a holiday sale on apparel next week! Comment a paint emoji 🎨 if you like supporting artists instead of big corporations around the holidays! I can't lie, I fall prey to the last minute amazon buy. But this year I'm trying to turn that around.
This holiday season, I am putting MYSELF FIRST 💃🏼 I am filling my cup & THEN embarking upon my mission of spreading love & light into the darkness by helping individuals mindfully move their bodies & consciously consume food 🌱
A couple years ago when I partnered with Beachbody I had dreams, BIG DREAMS. And honestly a handful of them have evolved into my daily reality🦋And it’s nuts. These dreams have came true because I dedicated myself to a process which has been proven to work time & time again. .
This process has revolved around committing to a workout program, designed by super trainers; following a meal plan, crafted by nutritionists; drinking a holistic shake, formulated with plants; and reading personal development 📖 .
And the best part of this process is NONE of these steps take talent. This system takes consistency, dedication & committing to SHOWING UP FOR YOURSELF, especially when you don’t “feel like it” 👊🏼
This holiday season I am giving myself the gift of health & fitness. I am not waiting until 2020 to embark upon my goals. There is POWER in stepping forward NOW. I am human & I am here to commit WITH you. No one will do the work for you, but I will DO IT WITH YOU👯♀️
I am offering $20 off this month to kick your health & fitness into gear going into the holidays. If you been pondering & considering hopping into this with me & my team, sister, REACH OUT & I will get back ASAP 💗
Tribe 🙏❤️ it doesn’t really get better than this — And what I mean by that is:: a group of people who each possess their own individual magic, coming together to support one another. We share our knowledge & strengths, we empower each other, we have everyone’s best interest. There’s joy in watching your friends succeed. No competition here - just some healthy high fives and smiles. .
Marry the guy who brings you pretzels to work, wakes up to walk the dog, takes all of your IG photos, gets your skis off the car because you can’t reach, who always says you can share dessert but only ever has a bite, and who doesn’t like pizza that much so there is always more for you.
The past few weeks have flown by and the harsh reality this is the busiest time of year. Between wedding + helping my retail clients + mini sessions + editing + getting ready for 2020 - there’s been little time to rest. This week has been a crazy culmination of the whirlwind and I really haven’t taken the time to appreciate it l. It’s easy to have super long phone calls with my dad and talk about what I need or want to do. Talking is easy. Actually going for it is a whole new ball game. And not that I’ve never rolled up my sleeves - but for the past four years I’ve been building off of that start from scratch movement where I cold called dozens of businesses and vendors to set up styled shoots and build my portfolio. This week has been very reminiscent of that.
A lot of big changes happening and I’m so encouraged by the direction being shaped. But I also want to pause and breathe in these moments. Sometimes it’s easier to blur through these seasons and not think about how little sleep you’re getting, how you’re still fighting that nasty cough and haven’t gotten groceries in weeks. But there’s so much excitement and possibility I wanna slow it all down. Who knows what this is gonna lead to and if I’ll ever be in this position again.
“They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night" 🏴 💚

Sometimes I think that when people see my page they just see the triumphs… the big smile… the beautiful backdrops… and the rest of the story just gets lost in the illusion that the path to where I am today left me unscathed… but, as with most people I know, there’s so much more to the story…
On November 22nd, 2014 I was sitting at work when I got a text from my mom saying, “call me when you get this”. Little did I know but that text was about to rock my world and flip my entire reality upside down.
That was the morning I found out that my Dad passed away and after about a month of managing his paperwork and finances, I returned back to my life in Lake Tahoe only to realize that nothing was the same… I didn’t know it at the time but this moment was going to become THE defining moment that lead me towards the very unexpected place I am today.

I don’t know about you but for the last week or so I feel like I’ve been on a rollercoaster emotionally...
I get good news and I feel happy. I get less favorable news and all of a sudden I’m feeling low... Things go my way and I feel full of gratitude but then I get an annoying email or message and all of a sudden I’m spiraling...
Something I learned a long time ago was that being at the mercy of the uncontrollable conditions of life is one of the most disempowering feelings I know... it’s a rollercoaster ride I don’t want to be on...
Truth be told the alternative, even though it is WAY more freeing, takes effort that is sometimes hard to muster... for me it takes putting my phone down.. it takes sitting my ass on a cushion and closing my eyes for 20 mins... taking a yoga class... getting some fresh air... it takes a moment of awareness to go against the current flow of my habits...
Today, in my constant effort to release any striving for perfection, I am choosing to be kind to myself for getting lost in all this... I am giving myself some grace... but I am also making the decision to choose differently... today I’m going on a hike. I’m going to spend as much time as possible out of cell service and savor the sweetness of some fresh air. Today I’m getting off the rollercoaster... (photo by @photograferg)

“Deep in our hearts we are searching for something this world can’t provide.” I have been getting back into journaling lately and as flipped back through the pages of an old journal I stumbled upon this sentence...
The last few weeks I have started to let go of the search and focus more on just being present... creating more space and less hurry... and even though I’ve stayed more rooted I’ve felt so much more free... free to show up to each and every moment with my whole heart and not just with the fragments of energy left over from being too busy.
As I write this I close my eyes... and I take a big breath in... as I exhale and settle into the moment I think I actually understand what I wrote all that time ago... no need to search for something that’s already here. (Photo by @photograferg )

It’s your life. It’s your time. It’s your hours in the day. Decide how it should be spent. Just make sure you spend it well ✌🏻
