Hey! How are ya? Good? Good. I’m having a wind down after swim training with some tea and orange incense, looking over some photos and thought I would share them with you.
Over the holidays we were keen to get outside but poor old Ireland was bucketing it down most days. I can’t remember the last time we had a wet Christmas but hey…that’s global warming for ya! This day, we woke up to a break in the clouds so we lept out of bed and got our boots on.
We trudged up the mucky sugar loaf and got some nice snaps, heading down just in time for the rain to start up again. What a great feeling turning around and gazing up at the mountain, being erased with white clouds now. One of my biggest fears is heights would you believe, and yet hiking is one of my favourite things to do.
If you feel like a fear is holding you back from doing the things you love, the number one remedy I’ve found works is just doing it anyway. Plan small adventures and be proud of the small achievements. Appreciating the beauty is a much more liberating feeling than fear and it will push you forwards up that mountain so make sure to stop and take it all in. Smile when it gets tough, it really makes you see the lighter side.
Hope you’re having a good week so far.
