Trifectas - Things I Know, In 3's

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

sunny 50 °F

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
-My Family.
-My Friends.
-Being Outside.


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.

Exciting Things
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!!!!

Quote of the Day:

Just Because.

Cheers to peace, change and fun
