Today one of my friends and I went hiking up to the top of Multnomah Falls. The hike up was tough, 1.25 miles almost straight up the side of a cliff. My legs burned all the way up. Near the top we took a little side trail and saw the creek that feeds the falls.
After our hike we went to Red Robin for some grub. It was mighty tasty after a long hard hike.
These adventures, while exhausting, give me inner energy to keep pushing on, and I thrive on them.
I am an outdoorsy girl, being outside, going hiking (even when it kicks my butt), going to the coast, and so much more brings me back to reality, and that there is more to life that just work. Right now I am juggling finding a work/life balance while I am still figuring out what kind of career is right for me. Going out into nature invigorates me, and quite often I have to stop and take in my surroundings.
Once I got home from today’s adventure, I have been working on posting pictures, and editing my blog which is currently uploading to YouTube.
I don’t always vlog my adventures, but I do blog about them and post pictures. For most the adventure is more than enough for them. Yes, posting pictures and writing blog posts, and editing videos is hard work. The blog posts and posting pictures is work, but it is also a way for me to decompress and go back over what I had seen and experienced. I love writing blog posts and sharing what I have experienced.
Being able to throw on a pair of jeans, a sweatshirt, and my hiking boots, ditching makeup, and going on a hike is who I am at the core.
