It doesn't get much better (in under 3 miles round trip) than the views from the top of the 1st/2nd Flatiron Trail. Love this hike.

the sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it's here is up to us. Journey wisely ..🌤️

✧ “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety or possessions - we cannot be free” ✧
Holding onto negative thoughts, emotions, etc... does not serve you. All it does is stop you from being in your purest, happiest state of being.
I used to be the type of person to hold on to grudges & mull over negative things that happened, but honestly, life’s too short to think about the negatives.
Why focus on your anxieties/fears when you can focus on how much you’re grateful for in this present moment?
Why focus on your negative past experiences when you can focus on positive future experiences?
Only when you learn to let go will you be completely free 🕊️🕊️

Day 6 of 6 (12/12/2017): Last sunset in beautiful Oahu, Hawaii. It's a bit of a bittersweet feeling. Glad to be going back home, but also sad to be leaving this beautiful island. It's been an amazing week here full of adventure and culture. Island life and being here has taught me so much, especially learning to slow down and take things more in the moment, and mostly, rediscovery of myself. This trip originally wasn't going to happen, but things kind of just fell into place...I had fun running the Marathon, hiking, exploring the whole island, crossing Stairway to Heaven off of my bucket list, hanging out with some people from my run family, and meeting new people. Till next time! ❤️ #solotraveler #chasingsunsets 🌅 #islandvibes #nuunlife #nuunbassador

Last week, Jay and I shared what we MISS about the life we left behind when we decided to travel full-time. I promised we'd soon share what we’re GLAD to have left behind, so here it is!
🐛🦋
Lena:
••My job. Ok, this is such a cliche answer people give about leaving behind their soul-sucking 9-5, BUT that’s not the case for me. I loved my job, and I believe I was doing meaningful work. But the truth is, I came into my position overqualified for it, and after 3 years, I became bored. I was always hectically busy, but I was no longer learning new skills. In addition, the new FLSA work-hour restrictions eliminated the time and space for creativity and innovation, so I started to feel like I was just going through the motions to get things done rather than infusing my work with heart and soul as I had before.
••Tallahassee, FL. This is where I lived most recently. It was the most I've ever struggled to build community, even more so than any time I've lived abroad. It’s an odd place to be as a young professional. It caters to university students or families, and those in between often get lost in this weird vortex. It’s not the case for everyone, obviously, but it certainly was for me. And dating? No. It’s a miracle I found Jay in that place 😂
••Routine and Stability. I get bored easily, and when I do, I become lazy and uninspired. I stop exploring and creating and dreaming. I crave novelty and new environments.
🐛🦋
Jay:
••This decision helped me realize how many unnecessary material things I had (mainly clothes) that I barely used, and I can do just fine with the little that I have.
••I'm glad I left the office I worked in, not for any bad reason, but because I don't like being closed in a room for 8 hours a day in front of a computer. I need to be in open spaces and be able to move freely.
••Leaving Tallahassee, I never felt like I belonged in that place.
••I like having my personal space (my room, my kitchen), but I also love always being somewhere new. I like the feeling of moving in to a new place.
☄️
So it seems we were both glad to leave the SAME things behind! If you could leave ANYthing in your life behind, what would it be?

View from the top of the Torre Tavira in Cadiz - an incredible watchtower with amazing views! And a Camara Obscura on top- basically like binoculars where you can zoom in on what is around! Would love to be back somewhere warm for Christmas! What are your plans for Christmas??

I stood in this exact same spot 11 months ago, and it’s even more beautiful than I remember. It’s so humbling and so breathtaking to stand at the foot of these massive glaciers - reminding you just how small you are in the world
and how amazing God’s great creation truly is!

Most of us grow up with the mindset that chasing a degree, a big house, expensive car, or a certain status will fulfill us. I just need adventure, love, and mental stimulation to fill me up all the way

No matter where these feet take me, I’ll always remember it was in this desert I learned to be free.

Five years ago, if someone were to tell me I would be climbing mountains with my Mr. AND my baby girl...I would likely have had a good belly laugh followed by a sigh of “yeahhhh right”.
Becoming a mom at 19 was the day my life ended. My life was ruined. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. You know, according to almost everyone around me (us). But, I’m not going to dwell on the immediate damning I received as a new mom, but instead focus on all of the humans, men and women, who believed in us enough to not let us be beat down by judgement and backhanded comments, and filled with doubt. Because as far as I’m concerned, this was far from the end....if anything, just the beginning of life. I don’t wish for anyone to bear a child until they are truly ready, but in the instance that life has other plans (as is usually does) we must always remember to stand strong against adversity and, as a proverbial cherry on top, prove all the doubters wrong along the way. #forceofnature #momstrong #adventuremamas #thislittlelightofmine

To be honest, we’ve both been dying a bit these past few weeks. The holidays are a busy time and mixed in with barely any daylight and we’ve been dragging around. In the summer, we’re up at the crack of dawn to see sunrises, we stay up late, and we bounce around with energy. These past few weeks we’ve felt like totally different people. We can barely drag ourselves out of the house let alone our beds. It’s safe to say that we’re ready for more daylight 😴 #adventurejaunts .

the beautiful thing about life is that you can always change, grow & get better. You aren’t defined by your past. You aren’t your mistakes.

My bit of wisdom for your Wednesday - Smile a little more, regret a little less. Go easy on yourself, life is hard! 😉 .

For today, I'm throwing it back to memories of yoga in public at Horseshoe Bend, I got a cheer for this pose! 😂✌🏻

Let's face it, sharing a room is challenging, but it can be pretty awesome too. This lovely human was my roomie during my surfing vacation a few weeks ago in Nicaragua. We shared some good times chatting, laughing, and sharing silence together. Tag a roommate you've had - traveling, summer camp, school, whatever - that made that experience more memorable.
