Somedays you wakeup & feel like doing an olympic distance triathlon.
Race report: Everyone (EVERY.ONE.) passed me on the 🏊🏻. No one passed me on the 🚴 I passed 16 people actually (damn straight I counted.) No one passed me on the 🏃🏻but then I didn't pass anyone either.
PS: didn't know how the onesie would work but I LOVED it! #HERevolution #HerEV .

The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order, a timetable not necessarily — perhaps not possibly — chronological. The time as we know it subjectively is often the chronology that stories and novels follow: it is the continuous thread of revelation. ~Endora Welty

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." ~M. Scott Beck

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. 
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.
So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, 
completely unencumbered.
~Aldous Huxley .

I am surrounded by mountains, rivers, lakes, and all sorts of natural beauty but I bet you didn't know I have elephants in my neighborhood? I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a fund raising event at PAWS, Performing Animal Welfare Society right here in Calavaras County. I'm still in awe of what I experienced. "The animals at PAWS have come from zoos, circuses, & private owners; many of them had been subjected to abusive conditions & treatment. To ensure they have the most natural, intrusion-free lives possible, PAWS sanctuaries are not open to the public, with the exception of a limited number of educational events." PAWS does not breed, sell, or rent its animals. There is nothing expected of these elephants - no performing, no tricks - Everything they do is of their own volition, PAWS does not make them come to the gate to say 'hi' to the guests, the elephants do that because they want to and because they are such highly social animals. The elephants have pools and mud baths & heated barns and 100's of acres to roam and graze. These elephants are cared for with love and the only thing expected of them is to live in dignity❤🐘

To my beautiful, intelligent, smarty-pants, moody, funny, adventurous, bossy, little Jellybean. My niece. Have I mentioned how proud I am of you, @melina.bonomo? (#TBT She graduated last weekend with her Masters. She's such a smarty-pants. Sometimes she is too smart for her own britches.)

Do not ever diminish yourself - for anyone. Live large and live loud. Don't back down from what you believe is right. Be kind. Do not take yourself seriously - laugh at yourself, often. Give a helping hand to those less fortunate than yourself. Be the Superhero in your own story. Always have your own money (secret money.) You don't have to smile when someone tells you to smile. Visit your auntie often. Follow your dreams. Never give up. Go on adventures. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something. Never stop asking what the Garmin says. Eat pizza for breakfast & pancakes for dinner - Or not. Take lots of pictures, and never stop exploring.

Congratulations ♥
