2019 in review:
March, up at Triund again. I've lost count of how many times I've done this hike. It never disappoints. •
This week the @hyattregencydhm announced a new location in Dharmkot. I sent this to a friend, to which he responded "Progress, I guess?" Meanwhile the backpackers who have popularized the area are moving further up the mountain to escape the mainstream invasion, bemoaning that the area is "nothing like it used to be."
We did this. All of us, collectively. All who visit the area, and tell our friends to go. We contribute to the draw, the seasonal population, and the "progress". Moving further up the mountain does nothing but ignore responsibility in contributing to changing the shape of a community. •
Tourism is extremely powerful. We have seen it both make and break communities worldwide. Dharmkot has changed drastically, even in the last year. It will continue to do so, with or without us. Whenever you're traveling, watch where your money is going. Local guesthouses? Local restaurants? Local families? What are the community systems in place to monitor tourism? Are you using them? Avoid chain operations even when - especially when, it is the most convenient option. Be conscious about where your money is going, and how it impacts a community in the long run.

Okay so a little awkward but a friend shared something about this and I just needed to get it off my heart, too.
She talked about how much women downplay what we do to make others comfortable. Women just don't celebrate themselves enough and aren't proud about the accomplishments they've achieved.
It's like it's never enough because of this double standard to be wonder woman with the kids, but if she works, she can't also be a great employee because of this dual responsibility that conflicts with being a good mom.
That really struck a chord with me, because, if anything, mamas are running circles around the home and workplace juggling all their responsibilities!
Ever changed a blowout on the fly in the trunk of your car?! It's like working mamas can't celebrate their boardroom victories without some second-rate justification, too.
I've found the MORE we share, the MORE we spark others to share THEIR gifts too...and everything gets better!
I am just so thankful to be IN this team and OBSESSED with touching lives as the measure of true success. Mama no problem, we got you between the mom cracks of life!
PS - It's the last week to get in my December bootcamp with a $10 off promo code! Wouldn't it be nice to start January ahead of the game? Fill this out and we'll get the best tools for YOUR success journey!
I needed a little reminder today of why I love this city! We are in the worst inversion this week! This awful winter air problem has got to be fixed! #slc #utah #lifeelevated #inversion #utahnsforcleanair #utahphotographer #saltcityphotographers #saltlakecityphotography #beautahful #mematsenphotography2 #mountains
Listening to the Hawk's hunting cry.
Look at this beauty! I’m hoping to catch him again with my big camera... but him and his friend visited just outside my window the other morning, and they were too quick to leave when they saw my big camera... I’m hoping there will be a next time! Super pretty!
