I’m grateful for our backpacking trip this weekend!
We went to Big Sur this weekend for Sophia’s birthday! We had a group of 10 people which is the biggest group that I’ve ever been camping or backpacking with. We backpacked about 20 miles over 2 days. It was a tough trail with a lot of elevation gain and was a really good challenge. I think backpacking/hiking is such a good way to challenge yourself, physically and mentally. When you push yourself out of your comfort zone for anything in life, you realize that you’re capable of so much more than you originally thought possible. When you constantly push your limits, the more confident you become with your abilities, and you realize that all your limitations were only in your head! So go out and do some impossible things 🙏🏼
Warrior 3 on an uneven log was pretty hard! I thought I was in a straight line but I’m definitely not 😅

a female deity.
a woman who is adored, especially for her beauty.
Here’s one of my favorite photos from the trail. Why? Because I felt like the strongest and most beautiful goddess. This photo is right after I crossed into Oregon. I had just peed my pants and the only reasonable option in my pack was to put on my underwear (yes, I didn’t hike wearing my underwear. Just had it for town days) I hadn’t showered in over a week. My body; this emotional, resilient vessel that creates me, had just walked the entire state of California and I felt nothing less than a brilliant and vigorous goddess. This is what a goddess looks like to me. Its knowing how many tears it took to get there. It’s knowing that this was hard-earned dirt that i am proudly showcasing. It’s recognizing less is more by carrying my life on my back for nearly 6 months. This is beautiful. This is pure. This is raw beauty. It’s the girl standing in a parking lot, hoping for a real meal because she’s been eating ramen and snickers for the days leading up. Who chose the harder path and cried & yelled in frustration & pain along the way. This girl: the one who obviously smells bad just by the looks of this picture. And this smile, its real. It’s genuine. This is me, wholeheartedly. Being able to laugh at myself because I peed myself. This is the goddess I want to remind myself of when days are challenging. When I look in the mirror and can’t find acceptance. Because this girl, is beautiful.. Her scars, her emotions, her journey. .
Ignite your inner goddess. She’s there. Find what your goddess looks like. We don’t need to perfectly curate our feeds or our bodies to appear someway. We need to honor our bodies and thank them for being here for us everyday. We need to continue to have reverence in our everyday. Find peace with our entire being. And be kind. Kind to ourselves, but also to others and our environment. .
Thank you, PCT, for helping me find the goddess that I am. And for allowing me to continue to evolve as a radiant, free-spirit. So much gratitude.

This was one of my highest days on trail. Crossing into Oregon after being in California for 3 months was such a huge accomplishment for me. I miss the crazy hair, the dirty legs, and my spirit being fed daily. Also missing my wonderful trail friend @lizzzwoo. 🥰
다시는 박배낭을 메고 가지 않으리라 다짐하며 하산했지만, 또다시 아른거리는 사량도의 박지😭ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ사면이 바다였던 이 섬의 높다랗게 올라온 옥녀봉근처에서 내려다본 비경은 이루 말할수가없었습니다😍 하늘과 바다의 저 끝 경계에는 어떤 존재가 있을지 가히 상상이되지않는 아름다운 풍경♥️ 능선을 타고가는 길은 거의 뭐 릿지등반 수준이었지만😂, 조금씩 이렇게 높은곳에 오르는 연습을 하다보면 조금씩 덜 무서워하지 않을까요🤣🤣👍🏼
