....and the fact that right now it feels like there are only 3 things

Writing is just good.
Sometimes writing fast, faster than you can think really helps you realize what is important.
So. I played a little game.
I listed out a few titles, and then filled in the blanks as fast as I could type, no thinking, no hesitation.
Just searching out the real.
Things I Love
Things I am scared of
-Not making a difference in the lives of others.
-Being so critical of myself that nothing will ever be enough.
-When my body can't do what I want it to.
Places I Feel Free
-In the saddle with the sun on my jersey and tunes in my ears
-The last 20 steps away from a summit, the longer it took to get there the better the feeling.
-Underwater, blowing bubbles somewhere beautiful on SCUBA
What makes me laugh (until it hurts)
-My girls. You know who you are....and how good those explosive laughing fits are.
-When I do stupid things, like spend 10 minutes looking for keys while holding them, or going to put on socks when I'm already wearing them.
-When my mom and I get rolling in our British accents...the more public and inappropriate the conversation the better.
Things I need more of
Lies I Tell Myself
I stared at this one for a long time....and while I am not ready to write these things out. I know what they are. I know how and why I manipulate my own thoughts. I know this isn't a particularly healthy, wise or strong feature....but I also know that to some extent we all do it. The ability to acknowledge that this happens is the first step. I've made it to that.
How do I Take Action:
1. I am getting rid of something everyday that has been lying around my house, unused and adding to the clutter of my life.
2. Recognizing that I am a better person when I leave my phone behind. Trying to make more efforts to leave it behind during work, hikes and runs.
3. I care too much about what other people think of me / my choices and my abilities. When I think the reality is that actually 90% of people....just don't give a fuck....as reflected by the uncanny ability to redirect entire conversations to themselves, their path, and their choices when you are simply trying to express how you feel about your own situation.
3 days of Climbing in MOAB, UTAH!
Yeah. CLIMBING! It's about damn time I get back onto some rock.
Florida. Florida. Florida. Over a week of playing in the sun with one of my favorite people. This will be the first year in 6 years that I don't race St. Anthonys Triathlon...my hip isn't up to the task right now, but I am focused on re-building, getting strong and having a fun, late starting season. Also, I'm pretty sure I can be a rockin' support team for R.J. We do race days pretty well <3
Glacier National Park.
Just saying. It's been written down on a calendar......cough, cough....Amanda!!!!
