MENTAL HEALTH// COMPARISON, UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, AND SELF MENTAL BEATING// . . . Girlfriend it’s not a bad Monday. Just a bad moment. One in which we can grow and learn from if we allow ourselves to. . . . Today I woke up in a good mood. But then at the rock gym my mood shifted for the worst. We were training on the trad wall and another go getter climber asked to join. Now I was the least experienced or worst in the group. I couldn’t get the first route while they just keep getting all of the ones they tried. . . I went down a bad path. I compared. “Great job Al (total sarcasm to myself), you can’t get the first route and these guys are crushing it. What is wrong with you? Why aren’t stronger? You’re better then this. You’re holding them back.” I did notice this wasn’t healthy in a instant. But I got frustrated. I wanted so badly to blame them. To lash out in bits and pieces to make myself feel better. But that wouldn’t have addressing the root cause nor was it anyone’s fault but my own. . . I grabbed my music and took myself out of that environment. Shifting again from frustration to sadness. I climbed the bouldering wall trying to let go of the negativity. . . I wish I could tell you that rituals, movement, being healthy solves our mental state, but it doesn’t always. Our mental health takes a LOT of time and understanding. To break down your own walls, open up, and allow the healing to begin. Don’t aim for instant satisfaction. Don’t lash out on others. Don’t hold it in. You can cry. You can change your environment. You can journal. You can move. Then go back and look deeper into why. Once that why is completely known then the healing begins. . . My why: my ego is struggling to be a beginner. To not rush but practice. . . . . . #myhealthyadventures#girlboss#womeninbusiness#femaleentrepreneur#womenempowerment#bossbabe#womenwhohustle#motivation#womenentrepreneurs#womenempoweringwomen#girlpower#goaldigger#vibes
Even the smallest acts are helped by many hands. Those hands make a big difference; not necessarily in the wide world, but by bringing peace to the sometimes quiet, sometimes quarelsome heart of the doer. Thanks to all who help me find peace in the details.

“I love you, not only for what you are, but what I am, when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out. I love you for putting your hand into my heaped up heart and passing over all the foolish, weak things that you can’t help dimly seeing there, and for drawing out into the light all the beautiful belongings that no one else has looked quite far enough to find... I love you because you are helping me to make of the lumber of my life not a tavern, but a temple; out of the works of my every day, not a reproach but a song. I love you because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy. You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign. You have done it by being yourself. Perhaps that is what being a friend means after all.” -Roy Croft

Earth Day is all about appreciating our incredible planet. 🌎 We are grateful that our students are learning about its unique biodiversity and how we can care for it through recycling, gardening, and conserving. Taking our students outside to explore and enjoy the fresh air each day helps them to LOVE the earth. And when we love the earth, we are motivated to care for it. So everyone.... go play outside! ❤️Happy Earth Day 🌎
