The best part of today was Ashlyn and I going down a run we hadn’t gone down before. We watched people go down as we were going up the chairlift and we would say “omg that is so steep”! . As Scott and the boys went flying down that super steep run. Ash and I took our time. I was scared to death, it looked like a freaking cliff and at any moment I would roll all the way to the bottom of the mountain. At one point I thought about sitting on my butt and sliding down, but that would be totally embarrassing! Then I kept telling myself something that I had read in my personal development; Obstacles don’t block our paths, those are our paths, those challenges are what help us grow and be better every day! . Seriously, this obstacle, basically a cliff 😉 can not stop me! I have to push thru all my fears so I can grow. So we made it to the bottom of the mountain(in 1 piece) and I felt like I had just won the lottery. . We got back on the chairlift and guess what, went down that CLIFF again!. . Ashlyn and I ended the day going on a run with just her and I, like I was in charge of her while on skiis 🤷‍♀️ but yay okay, I just crushed going down a cliff I can do anything...and boy did I do something. I rolled from the top of a drop in, half way down. As I laid there slowly moving each limb to make sure I could feel it and that it’s not broken, Ash yells up “did you break anything”? I responded with Its not broken but it’s hurt 😢 As we made our way down, I had the same feeling I had when I crushed going down the CLIFF. Pure joy that I was better then I was before I started. I am so glad I didn’t head to the lodge after my near death experience going down a cliff. 😉 . . The lesson I learned today is, Don’t ever give up on yourself, you are worth it❤️. . #skibluewood #overcomeobstacles #growwiththem #girlpower #icandohardthings #irolledlikeapro #falldowngetup #anxiety #dontstopgetitgetit #familyskiing #mylegsareonfire #neverquit #loveyourself

If you’ve been following my journey, you know that I’m always working on my self development and working towards that “best” version of myself! ——————————————————— Not too long ago, I decided that I was going to try at least one NEW thing a month. Why? Trying something new pushes us outside of our comfort zone and when you do THAT, you grow💕. I definitely had a few “ah-ha” moments on the mountain today. And hello 👋🏼, how beautiful are the snowy mountains and trees🌲?!?! When was the last time you’ve tried something new? I challenge you to JUST DO IT! Step out of that routine, step out of that comfortable space you are residing in. Challenge yourself to grow! I challenge you! ——————————————————— February’s adventure was skiing ⛷!! You guys!! I had a BLAST!! I can’t wait to do it again! It’s one of those things that I wish I would have done a long time ago! ——————————————————— A huge thank you to @mrs.c.mcfadden , @scmcfadden and Jaxson for taking me skiing today, for the jokes #singlerider #heidi #snowboarding 😂 and for all your excellent guidance. Thanks to @craigst9 for hooking up the gear. #staydry You all are amazing and I’m thankful to have you in my life! . . . . . #morningmotivation #positivemindset #thankfulgratefulblessed #ski #skiing #northface #bolle #inspirationalquotes #inspire #inspiration #challenge #humor #tiedye #helmet #washingtonstate #skibluewood #momswholift #momswholiftheavy #adventure #snow #powder

Lo mejor de los viajes son las experiencias que vives y las anécdotas que te quedarán de por vida en tu mente. De repente los días ya no los medirás en horas, sino en experiencias. #skibluewood

Last weekend we hosted a group of recovering veterans from the Walla Walla VA Medical Center for a chance to get outside and enjoy some mountain fresh air. They enjoyed the camaraderie of spending a day together on the slopes skiing and snowboarding. In the words of Jerald R., “You made an old vet feel like a kid again. Nicci P. also said, “I’ve always had trouble focusing on the NOW, when I strap that board on, I’m there!!”. We host this group 3 times each year and look forward to having them back this season. Thanks to @skibluewood and their staff for all the support and hospitality they have provided to our groups throughout this season and past seasons. Programs like this would not exist without all of your generous contributions. #skylineadventures #skylineadventureswa

Today I cried again, yep I sure did!! 😢. . But all the tears were worth it to prove to myself that I can do things that scare me! . Today i was able to ski with my boys for the first time EVER because I chose to not let fear and anxiety take over. I stepped up my game and went down a new run!! . Growing up I loved skiing and think I was pretty good, but as an adult it was crippling to think of going down the slopes at a high rate of speed 🎿. . So today I am giving myself a high five 🙌 and feeling pretty dang proud of myself. . #ownyoursuccess #icandohardthings #livingmybestlife #myboysareawesome #skibluewood
