We did it. We made it through January. All 359,719 days of it.
January was long, cold, frustrating…overall it was super weird. The energy was off. Some great things absolutely came out of it in the form of personal wins, I just feel like I was sick a lot and not 100% myself for most of it.
February is bringing some changes here! I am always trying to better myself and the extensions of me (i.e. This blog, my volunteer duties, my business) so bear with me on this venture.
Right now I’m working on my first piece for Epic Social Adventures and it’s been very fun to challenge myself with coming up with some new and different content and being a little more inclusive and participatory with how I am writing. I am looking forward to finishing it up and sharing it with you!
I have recently reached out to a couple local papers about running an article on Gear Forward. Very much hoping that it works out so we can get a spotlight on us as we approach LHX! I am working hard to help my own community in this season of my Gear Forward relationship.
Last night, I put in our permit application for Mt. Whitney. Which means today I am super tired because I was up all night watching videos and reading blog posts and scouring Google images of the mountain. I’m obsessed.
It’s all I think about. I don’t know why I’ve been so set on Mt. Whitney. It’s calling me. There is a longing inside of me for the Sierra and even just watching somebody else’s experience or summit videos sends chills through me and puts tears in my eyes. I want this.
Can I even do it? Will I get there and chicken out? I am absolutely terrified of heights and the idea of being stricken with altitude sickness. And lightning.
I have so many doubts and fears. It’s not even really a big deal, but to me it is. It’s the biggest deal in the lower 48.
