I took the long way home today. Sometimes you just know when you need to keep going. And I’m so thankful I did. I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s to come in my life and there are a lot of possibilities. Some very scary and new and others that will keep me comfortable and are “safe”. But when it comes down to it, I feel like I’ve already been through maybe the hardest challenges my life will offer, and I’m still here, tough as hell. So, failing or making a wrong turn isn’t what scares me anymore. It’s the thought of missed opportunities. Lifelong FOMO. Anyways, thankful the snow didn’t stick. Thankful for friends. Thankful for challenges. Thankful for emotions that remind me I’m alive. Thankful for bikes and a body that can take me places I want to go.

This is my sheep friend!!! We chase each other around every night! 🐑🐾
It’s been quite the journey for me when it came to self love and becoming truly comfortable in my own skin, especially in terms of embracing my body the way it is. Having been bullied due to my weight, which resulted in years of near constant self-loathing and comparing myself to others... feeling like I could never measure up and meet the physical ideals of a society that seemed to only cater to those who were of a certain look or size, I’ve now come to a point in my life where I feel like I can just be who I am, and be confident in who I was made to be. 💕 The pressure to conform is off, and my sole aim now is simply to be the healthiest and strongest person I can be for myself, and not because I want to meet someone else’s expectations. Thank you so much @missizacalzado for inspiring many with your own story and encouraging others to find as well as embrace their own unique kind of beautiful, both inside and out. #TheBodyLoveRevolution

Hitting the road this week to open for @itsdorothysucka in Seattle on Thursday (this show is almost sold out!), and then I’m continuing the 4 freedom tour in Nampa, Idaho on Saturday. 100% of proceeds from this concert go to @rescuefreedom to fight sexual slavery! Link to the event is in my bio. Come check it out!! It will be a fun night of music and coffee.
Coming Into View // I’ve spent the last week running around from place to place in some of the heaviest snow of my life - 1” diameter flakes almost every day, down in Washington and up here in BC, just huge amounts of snow everywhere. Stoked 🙌🏻
