How often do you encourage those around you? Encouragement, even the slightest bit, can help someone soar. Ever since my bouldering accident this year, I've been scared to push myself to the top of these (17ft?) walls. My mindset & fear paralyzed me. Last week was the first time since my injury that I pushed through & made it to the top. One big reason I didn't give up this time? When I was encouraged to "keep going, you got it." That was exactly when I started to hesitate & think, I'm tired, I'm too high off the ground, I have poor footing, I need to come down. Those few words of encouragement helped change my thoughts, reminded me that I'm capable, & helped me kick that drunk monkey to the curb.
Is your mindset holding you back from something? Are you surrounding yourself with people who push you & encourage you? Or people who agree that you probably can't do better so you stay in your comfort zone? So what if you go for something & don't get the outcome you had hoped for. You had the courage to go for it & that's great! #dontgiveup
Shop update tomorrow at 6:30 PST. Due to having to do maintenance on both kilns, I didn’t get as much for this update as planned. But Don’t worry! I’m having another update on BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY. tomorrow I’ll have blue mountain mugs, Bigfoot mugs, monstera mugs, and a few others :) comment below what you want to see on the next update so I can get started on it! It means so much to me that you buy Christmas gifts through me. It means everything to my business I am so thankful and I hope you all continue to support my small business. :)
If I were to guess what word I use the most, it’s this one: Sorry. Usually I’m saying it when I don’t need to, like when someone bumps into me, or saying it more than I need to, like when I mess up on a very small work task. I can be pretty hard on myself and sometimes can’t let my mistakes go. These past few days I’ve said sorry to other people more times than I can count. But the one person I should’ve been apologizing to was myself. So sorry self for being so critical. I’m going to go easier on you.
They said you must strengthen your roots in order to achieve what you really want to do.
So we went right back to where roots have been growing naturally for about 15-20 years which have become strong enough to let people walk over it. So here we are, standing strong on these roots that have grown deeper and deeper to a point where you realise that its so strong that it actually converted into double decker root bridge. Crazy right?Anyway, my point is- We need to be more like these roots. Stronger and deeper from within💫
So it about 3000 steps down from Tryna village to Nongriat which takes you about an hour and half max. You keep climbing down, so its quicker. There are homestays at the village and also they can set you up in cosy tents very close to the bridge. So don’t worry you will find a sweet spot to spend your night if thats your plan. Also, there’s a natural pool where you can take a quick dip and start your day to climb upto rainbow falls and Nohkalikai falls. I must say, it’s quite a adventure💚
Let’s talk about worthiness for a second 👋🏻
I can tell you what worthiness is not.
Your degree. Your weight. Your income. Your relationship. Your job title.
In fact, it’s so much simpler than that.
You are worthy...simply because you are human...because you are here.
Let that little morsel sink in because it’s actually, a giant, huge, fucking deal.
You are worthy. 🧡
One of the last glimpses of the gold. If you guys think I love Fall, just know it’s only my second favorite season. The oncoming snow globe, and all the magic that comes with it, that’s true heaven to me 😌❄️
One of the hardest and most valuable lessons I’ve learned on this journey is to love myself -sometimes more than anything else. It oozes narcissism and elicits judgment when it’s said out loud, but it’s important. Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey, not only because of physical isolation, but because it can be difficult for people to relate to your experiences. Your stresses and successes are very different from each other’s. The road is hardly ever paved – it’s full of holes and bumps, steep slogs and deep ditches and the thing you’re chasing, that dream you’re working toward, is often around the corner out of sight. The pack you’re wearing is often paralyzingly heavy and there are always voices whispering (or shouting) their opinions of doubt at you. You must always be your own biggest cheerleader, coaxing and willing yourself to put one foot in front of the other, make decisions about which fork in the road to choose, and remind yourself why you’re on this path. Because no one can do that for you, and if you can’t do it for yourself, then who the hell will? #getfound
