Repost - @katieemorgan follow her next adventure 😊😊🙏🙏
Reflecting on the New Year ahead. 2016 and 2017 were transformative years for me. For 2018 I want to continue to remain focused and dedicated on the task ahead. However -- I also want to take some of the lessons I've learned climbing -- and apply them to life outside of the mountains. In my work...in my relationships...etc
1) Chase dreams -- don't say you can't. You never know what you're capable of until you push yourself outside of your comfort zone and give 110% dedication towards chasing something "unattainable" Besides...it's better to chase dreams and fail then ever wonder what could have been.
2) Don't be scared of failure. First if you never fail it means you're never challenging yourself. Failing is never failing if it's in the context of progress towards a broader goal. If you never fail you will never find success.
3) You learn more about yourself when you get knocked down then when everything is going smoothly. "Failing" forces you to examine yourself and reflect and grow as a person. While life's setbacks can suck -- and they do -- how you respond to them is entirely within your control -- no better quote then the Lion king 😂"the past can hurt but you can either run from it or learn from it"
2018 will bring the expected challenges but also the unexpected. My goal is to respond with those thoughts in mind. -- ladder crossing on Island Peak.

Remembering the beauty of this place and the adventure to get here. The night before, the road was closed down due to flooding, cutting us off from our hotel. We had to scramble for another accomodation. In the morning we woke up to the sound of wind gusts and storm. We waited for the storm to calm down in the cozy hotel while having breakfast. All good fun.
This could be a scene from Titanic btw. #iceland#glacier#memories#beautiful
Without the person in this picture you would have no scale. With scale it gives you some sort of idea how big ice caves in Iceland can be. And how big the glaciers are that carve through the landscape.
