First it's impossible. Then it's difficult. Then it's done. The #DirectorsOfToughness are going through the impossible and getting it done.

I've got a crazy month ahead of me... While everyone is starting up with school, I'll be in the Amazon filming a subject that is highly controversial in the western world we live in. Having a little going away party tomorrow if anyone's interested in joining; I'll be leaving this coming Sunday. Check out the link in my bio to watch a little video application for mine and @hunterjnelson entry for the #directorsoftoughness

as I watched a bear jumping around and swiping at the water while fishing for salmon, the thought occurred that i will likely never again be in this same place. moments cannot be repeated. there's no hitting rewind or even pause. with the good or the unfortunate. i have so much to reflect on and stories to unpack from the last nine months. my time with Columbia is starting to wrap up and I have to say this current trip is one of the most epic and incredible yet. ✨
can't wait to share stories once we're back stateside, amazed we could get a bit of connectivity!

Our Directors of Toughness tried their hands [literally] at paddling across the Klamath River for the first time, taking on some pretty decent sized waves 😂 What about you, how often do you get to do something for the first time? 💪

Los directores de prueba de #Columbia, estuvieron en la Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta probando la linea #titanuim, perfecta para los terrenos mas exigentes del planeta.

Our Director's of Toughness were happy to be in home territories on this leg of their adventure. Mark and Faith began their #TestedTough adventure at the world headquarters in Portland and took a road trip down to Northern California. The record-setting snow in the Pacific Northwest this winter has made for some of the best white water rafting and kayaking in decades.

away we go!!
one of the best parts of my amazing experience with @columbia1938 has been working with the most incredible crew. i learn from them constantly. super talented, wonderfully caring gents who spend their time trying to find projects that move them. with backgrounds in politics, anthropology, conservation, guiding, health and medicine, they've all somehow found themselves here in media sharing stories. curious about humans and how we interact with our environments. i've still never been to Vermont but I have a newfound love of the state based on these guys. cheers to art and heart, to the unsung heroes behind the camera, to taking chances, working and playing fully. pumped to be reuniting with the crew for our next wild ride.

i do believe that.
my sister texted after she saw the video from our kayaking trip on the Klamath River saying, "I know you, I know you were scared!" ha, she was right.
it's funny, I've been thinking so much about fear, toughness, and how you approach new things this year. i hope always that it's less about what i'm doing and more about the attitude with which i'm approaching it. i always hope to spread joy, create community and offer a space for conversation. i'm learning every day about my own needs, my own behavior in tough situations, what it means for me to be strong, how I deal with anger and frustration. importantly for me, that seeking to smooth things out is not always the answer. and that being upset is okay. and, as @markjameschase also spoke to recently, i've been thinking about the way that i react to difficulty and challenge.
if we are built in the fire we can come out stronger.

Zorlu parkurlarda Columbia'yı test eden Directors of Toughness temsilcilerimiz, Temmuz ayında Klamath Nehri'nin köpüklü sularında kano ile mücadele etti.
Kayalarla dolu Klamath Nehri'ndeki mücadeleye yakından bakmaya ne dersin?

Our Directors of Toughness head to our own backyard in the Pacific Northwest where they navigate the whitewater rapids of the Klamath River. 🏞️

"Be more than ready. Be present in your discipline. Remember your gift. Be grateful for your gift and treat it like a gift. Cherish it, take care of it, and pass it on. Use your time to bathe yourself in that gift. Move your hand across the canvas. Go to museums. Make this into an obsession…

What you are will show, ultimately. Start now, every day, becoming, in your actions, your regular actions, what you would like to become in the bigger scheme of things."
- Anna Deavere Smith

a friend and i spoke recently about building self confidence by holding ourselves accountable to our art. it brings me back to thoughts about discipline and habit. with a busy lifestyle i have often put important things aside, my work in stories and projects, but also some of my inner work. i was goofing off in this pic, but seeing it made me think about making time in small ways every day to be exactly who i want to be to myself.

thank you for the reminder 📸 @tiffanyrenshawmedia

less related. it's #windbreakerwednesday and as you'll see in our most recent video for the @columbia1938 #directorsoftoughness, mark and I are pretty obsessed with the flashback windbreakers! 😅

i've always been much more about beaches than rivers. but.... we had an incredible time learning to paddle and hitting the Klamath and Clear Creek w/ @momentumrafting
might be turning into a river woman 🤔
