Sometimes I literally just look around and accidentally get choked up on my gratitude a little. There aren’t the right words, it’s just a feeling. It seems in these moments, maybe that’s exactly the point.

I may or may not have forgotten to brush my teeth the last two suggested times, but self care has a whole bunch of personas, some with a much higher rating of hot-fire yes please, so you know what, I’m not even one lick worried about it.

Here we are, looking pretty put together. ✨ For the record, 5 minutes after this I sat in chocolate and ruined my pants. 😆😆😭 Thankful today for a washing machine and whipped cream (bc otherwise Eamer wouldn’t have eaten anything for dinner 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🥴).

Happy Thanksgiving Dinner #1! (Next week, I’ll make sure I watch where I sit 😱👀🙅🏻‍♀️🍫).

Raise your hand if you live with chronic disease 💁🏼‍♀️.
On this happy little Wednesday, I just want to say that
I see you.
Through all the days, hours, times of symptom filled struggle during which no one else even knows to offer support.
I see you.
Through all the times you have to suck it up, keep your cool, fight back tears, and sit in a state of defeat of confusion.
I see you.
For all the times you run bloodwork, try a new protocol, and throw 10 supplements at once down your throat, because that’s your normal.
I see you.
Through the highs, the lows, and the moments of stagnancy.
I see you.
It’s a lonely hard road at times.
But please, no matter how isolating and never-ending it may seem.
You’re never actually alone.
I see you.

After being challenged this week on this topic, I’d like to stand my ground and say that 💯 you can be a badass and still have self doubt.
Being badass is not only a series of actions, it’s also a state of mind.
And I’ll go on to say that a badass mentality isn’t about winning, squashing fears, feeling invincible, or always being confident.
I’d like to encourage you to sit with all the things that makes you feel intimidated, triggered, scared, doubtful or inferior.
I’d like you to understand that these things happen from a zillion different factors, many of which we can’t control from our storied pasts.
Being badass is finding both humility and strength when you’re outside your comfort zone.
Being badass is when you’re tapped into your emotional self, hangin’ out with the hard doubts and feelings, knowing you’ll get through it, somehow.
It’s when you’re powerful enough in your mind to be really damn honest about the shit that ails ya and chip away at progress over time.
This is badass.
It’s knowing you’re not perfect and can still honor the weaknesses within.
Being badass is understanding that doubt is really just the spark in the process, ignited to help prove ourselves wrong as we grow.
It’s the human-factor part of it.
The special non-robotic part.
And I don’t know about you, but I’m here to feel as human as I can... doubt, badassery, and all.

It’s never perfect, my friends.
You forgot something.
Plans change.
It’s cold.
It’s hot.
The light is too harsh.
Or your feet hurt.
Your snacks aren’t that good.
You’re worried about something.
Your to-do list is hovering.
You’re hungry.
It’s windy.
You wish your hair was thicker.
Your legs were thinner.
Or that you weren’t so afraid of snakes.
But this is it.
This is how it is.
So quit thinking so hard.
About all the zillion imperfections.
And realize that whatever present time and place surround you, is yours to think fondly of... or not.

If you can’t find me,
Look for me right here.
If I’m not right here,
check the warmer pool to the left.
I’ll be somewhere there,
watching the clouds wander on by,
and just soaking it all in...

The alarm blared early, and I open my eyes, looking out my sleeping bag head hole, nose chilly but body toasty like last night’s campfire. I crawled out of my bag, took of all my top layers to wiggle into a sports bra and then re-bundle with an extra fluffy layering system. We all crammed into the @Salomon van, sitting on the floor amongst boxes of demo shoes, giveaways, and event props, and held our coffee cups out in front of us to avoid spillage as we drove a teensy bit too fast for the rugged road potholes. Of course we did. And then we got there, still dark as night and chilly as just below freezing. We laughed as we waited for the colors to warm and the first rays to poke over the red rocked landscape. And then they did, us giggling and giddy like we cheated the day a little, maybe because we did. It’s these earliest hours when you watch the world come alive that I feel it most. We earned it, the magical sliver of time which happens every single day, usually without us noticing. I guess that’s the lesson after all, the teeny slices of light and magical time are there, we just have to place ourselves in the perfect juxtaposition to catch the glory. I’ve never once regretted it. Not one single naked-in-my-tent sports bra wiggle before the sun comes up.

The thing is,
if we got our feathers ruffled
or our feelings hurt
or our underpants bundled
or whatever the sayin is...
every time something didn’t go quite right,
we’d really get in our own damn way,
don’t you think?
Cheers to feathers, feelings, and underpants.

Hi!
My name is Becky.
My favorite things are people, our planet and creating things.
I’m a hiker, a mountain biker, a yogi and a snowboarder.
I’m not that great at any of those things, but I’m great at having a grand ol’ time.
Plus, I’ll bring the best snacks.
I used to be an art teacher and sometimes I have FOMO that my paints are dusty.
I also love bandanas.
So does my doggo, Ollie. We call them his shirts and he sits proudly whenever we put one on.
Ollie and I live in Utah now after a long stint in Colorado.
I have a lot of succulents and no TV.
Tacos and maple syrup are my favorites (but not together). And cheese. All the cheese, please.
Most of my free time is spent outside. It’s where I feel most like me.
I don’t love crowds.
Cities kinda give me the willies.
I get annoyed with inefficiency.
A nice seafoam green or teal has been my forever favorite color. Mustard yellow is my current other favorite.
Alpine lake swimming is my jam.
I love a good sweater in the chill.
Chronic illness is a part of my daily. I have Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s and mold illness.
I’m a newbie to fly fishing and I might learn to ski this year, maybe.
I’ve been gluten free since before it was cool.
I’m seeking a handsome man to love real big.
And golly gee, I absolutely adore jewelry I can sweat in, campfires, overalls, running on the downhills, the darkest of coffee, and making others feel good.
This is me.
Tell me something I don’t know about you?

These gals, they don’t like when the trail gets too close to the cliff. But what a week of adventure it’s been. We forded the river at the Narrows, bought a lot of Native American art, watched the sun set and the moon rise over the Grand Canyon, stood under arches and above canyon drop offs. We hiked through sand, up steps, over slickrock, and around yet another bend. We laughed a lot and locked the keys in the car in the middle of nowhere and tried to wrap our heads around thousands of years time. A well played week of open roads and our country’s finest landscapes. Girls trip 2019 ✌🏻.

I got an email from my friend Katie who just finished hiking the JMT. She was hiking along chatting with a young woman who was talking about a podcast that inspired her. After sharing some details of the girl in the podcast, Katie blurted out “Becky! That’s my friend Becky!” She was talking about my recent story on @she_explores ☺️.
-
And this is everything. She Explores believed in me. I shared my story out loud. My story resonated. Others shared theirs. And the circle of support and empowerment carries on. It circles around. It magnifies and it elevates. I’m just somewhere in the middle of it, just like you. -
So, cherish our small beautiful world.
Praise the power of social media.
Connect.
And for the love of all things, tell you’re story, hard parts and all.
I assure you, it’s worth telling.
Let it rip free.
And in return, be prepared to listen as hard as you can... for stories will come, hard parts and all.
Before you know it, you’re whole existence feels lighter and more emotionally vibrant. 
What it is, to be a human.

Always wondered what the Bright Angel trail looked like. 
Ran a couple miles down.
Hiked (and huffed) back up.
Did a handstand in between on a large flat spot not THAT close to the edge.
Sorry, Mom 😬

I had my cooler with cheese and sparkling water, my cute doggo, a warm summer eve, a Powerpoint presentation shaping up, and the place to myself.
This morning, I made the final touches on that Powerpoint prezzo to really queue up a great Friday, and then.
I spilled coffee all over myself while driving to work.
Duh homegirl, that Yeti mug doesn’t properly fit in the cup holder. 
Then, I somewhat chipped my front tooth filling which is the aftermath of a gnarly bike crash many years ago.
Anyone recco an Ogden dentist, please?
And then the worst, I lost my Powerpoint slides.
Somehow.
I have no idea how.
I frantically ran to IT to no avail, cried a little, and reworked that damn thing as fast as I could while the presenters before me took the spotlight.
And ya know what?
It’s fine.
It wasn’t perfect, but it’s fine.
It’s all fine.
Because life is about laughing, letting a few tears squeak out at the boardroom table because we’re so amazingly human, and just showing up to whatever presents itself as best we very can.

They say that locals don’t really come here much.
Either:
A) I’m not a local yet 🙄
B) I’m missing something 🤷🏼‍♀️
C) Locals don’t even know 🤦🏼‍♀️
Either way, fine fine.
Be back again soon.

We’re all drinking JD tonight in Pop’s honor. We’re scattered around the country, group text going, feeling both sadness and such intense pride. Our Jack Daniels is a tribute to a life well lived, a family well raised, a war well fought, and an intensely deep impact on a familial community so powerful I can’t quite articulate its radiance. A man of dignity and intelligence, of intuition and perfection in all things. He was just the teensiest bit intimidating at 6’6” but a little bit silly just in the right moments when the songs came out from those old war days. I hope he’s found Gran up there, who left us just six months ago. We knew it’d be a short time apart, that never felt right to any of us. Guaranteed she’s got the casserole baking in the oven, ready to pour their happy hour triple JD on the rocks, sitting down to tonight’s nightly news: Two beautiful souls, beating the odds of time at 90 and 95, a legacy of swans lives on.
