Just because I think this picture is beautiful and it speaks a thousand words.💜 The last few years for me has been a real rough journey. I won't go into details too much. But I was in a pretty bad place. In the last year, I've focused on me for once. And finding me again. It's been full of ups and downs. But those good days started to out weigh the bad. And everything started to fall into place.
Now I can say...
I have learnt so much, I feel so proud of myself, I have come such a long way. 💜
My point here is no matter what happens in life. If you really focus and set your mind to something, you can do anything... For me talking is the best medicine, don't suffer alone.
Be free and be you 💜

Fresh grizzly tracks on the Koyukuk River, northern Alaska 1992: "Fear shows itself in different ways. In a crisis that requires an instinctive and immediate reaction, you don't have time to be afraid. The fear comes when it's over, when you think about how close you came to catastrophe. Then there are times when the fear messes with your mind. You vividly imagine a frightful scenario that in reality doesn't exist. The worst fear, however, is when it is right there in front of you and there is ample time to experience it, when it simmers until it threatens to overwhelm.
I learned that one should never be afraid of being afraid. Fear is a part of life, and it can be a very healthy part, especially when you realize that in a life-threatening situation, it is possible to rise above panic and maintain control of rampaging emotions. I understood what having courage really is, not the absence of fear, but the acceptance of it. It's a good lesson to learn because you never get too old to get scared." (except from "Alone and Scared," chapter 3 in my book, "Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker") #talk#wayoutthere#speaker#Boomerbackpacker#soloadventure#solotrekker#Adventure#Jrinthewilderness#brokenbo#seniortrekkers#boomerbackpackers#trekkers#travelinsta#trekkinginsta#adventure#trekking#travel#solotrekking#Adventure#exploring#environments
I'm Always Trying To Enhance Awareness For Mental Health, I Wouldn't Wish It On My Worse Enemy, As I Fight Demons Everyday Being Diagnosed With 4 Mental Health Disorders I Would Ask Anybody Out There, Friends, Family, Even Strangers To Please Talk With Somebody, Even If Its Written In A Letter Just Something To Help You Let Out Your Emotions & To Let People Know. You Would Be Surprised At How Many People Are In The Same Position. Dont Be Ashamed, Especially As A Man, We Are Known To Be Strong & Not To Show Our Emotions As This Shows Weakness But There Is Only Weakness In A Person When They Are Left To Fight These Demons Alone. I Would Ask My Friends & Family To Like This To Spread Awareness If You Believe In Helping EachOther. I Forgive The People Who Have Wronged Me In The Past & I Seek Forgiveness From Those Who I Have Wronged In The Past 🙏 #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#men#woman#women#standtogether#quoteoftheday#quotes#speech#forgiveness#talk#listen#family#friends#helpeachother#fight#depression#ptsd#anxiety#disorder

Something that I’ve struggled with a lot this past years is learning how to choose myself. Too many times I would find myself making other peoples lives my priority. I stretched myself thin doing favors for others, putting my life on hold to see people i love, the list goes on and on — essentially I was just putting everyone else’s needs before my own
Learning how to put myself first didn’t happen overnight. It took a lot of conflict both internal and external with those around me. It forced me to learn about who I am as a person with my passion, interests etc. I experienced a lot of uncomfortable moments, BUT THAT IS WHEN THE GROWTH HAPPENS! failure breeds success, you can’t get where you’re going without falling a few times along the way.
if you’re reading this and feel that you were in the position I was this past year I encourage you to start to think of your self first, honor your body, your feelings, your thoughts and stop letting others rule your decisions and how your life plays out. Choose your happiness & choose your own life stop putting it in the hands of others and you will be amazed at how much personal growth you can experience. just by choosing to love yourself and care about yourself, as much as you choose to love and care about people around you ✨💛
ANXIETY...it can make you feel scared, alone and frightened. It can make a normal day, a fun situation, a great day out turn into something else entirely. It can make you want to keep your head down and not look up for fear of what you might see. For me anxiety had no warning. I could feel totally fine one minute then the next totally panicked. I am lucky that these situations are few for me now, but during my recovery and after it there were times I felt like I couldn't breathe. I often felt alone, I often felt scared and I often felt frightened. I now take medication to control it and to reduce my sleep anxiety. I am here to say you don't have to feel alone. I know what it is like. Know that I am here to talk, here to listen. It isn't easy, but sometimes just talking can really help and ease your symptoms. There is no shame in having anxiety or talking about it, so don't keep your head down, look up, be proud of who you are. I do understand it can be hard, but opening up can really, really help. You are not alone 🧡🧡🧡
Olá, pessoal, tudo bem com vocês?
Desde que entrei nesse mundo de bookstagrammer, ao longo do tempo fui me deparando com alguns comentários sobre obras que não gostei, mas a pessoa sim, e vir a seguinte frase: “VOCÊ DEVE TER LIDO ERRADO”. Fiquei pensando que, não tem isso de “li errado”, leio algo e formo uma opinião com base no que li, se o livro não funcionou para mim, pronto, é MINHA opinião.
Gosto é algo subjetivo e individual, há inúmeras coisas que eu gosto, que sei que várias pessoas não gostam, por isso, tenho a permissão para falar que a pessoa leu errado?
Outra coisa que me incomoda também nesse universo é que, como as pessoas são extremamente ofensivas em falar mal de uma obra e às vezes não há nenhum embasamento para fazer uma crítica.
Não estou querendo dizer que vamos ser falsos, elogiar uma obra que não gostamos, não é isso. Apenas que você pode dar sua opinião sem ofender a experiência de leitura que o outro teve, porque isso dá um banho de água fria na pessoa e ela pode ficar chateada.
Ano passado li um livro que foi bastante hypado, por conta disso e por ser um gênero ao qual adoro, o peguei para ler. O livro era “Um de Nós Está Mentindo”. A leitura não foi o que eu esperava e acabei avaliando com uma nota bem baixa. Mas em nenhum momento na minha resenha falei que o livro era horrível e aconselhei a ninguém a ler, porque sei que cada um tem um gosto... o que não pode funcionar para mim, pode funcionar para o outro e vice-versa.
Ou seja, vamos para de achar que nós bookstagrammers somos a voz da razão, que só o que nós lemos é O CERTO, porque não é bem assim.
Respeite quando alguém não gostar ou gostar de uma obra e forme sua opinião sem ofender a experiência de ninguém.
Afinal, sinceridade é diferente de arrogância e prepotência.
