This year has been about evolving, growing, exploring, trying new things. It’s been fun. It’s been exciting. It’s been challenging. I used to adore hiking, but because of my worsening rheumatoid arthritis, my feet (and everything else) have been in too poor a state to tackle mountain trails. But, with a recent upswing (for which I largely credit yoga and healthy eating), last Sunday I went on my first hike in years. It was fucking incredible. I loved it. I ached for days, in fact, today is the first day I don’t want to cry every time I stand up!
We arrived at this waterfall (see below), and the beauty, the peace, overwhelmed me. It made me conscious that I’ve left my comfort zone this year, and as scary as it can sometimes be, it’s invigorating to push myself and see what I’m capable of.
