We were on our way out of the woods when my son saw this log "oh, mama, can I walk across it?" My first instinct was no. It's rotting and may not be stable and while the creek bed is dry, it's full of jagged rocks. But I paused. The creek bed IS dry. I can walk along side him. Is it really *that* dangerous? "Yes, you can". . . Both my daughters responded with shock "but it's not safe!" "He might die!". This tells me I've failed a bit, their fear. . . "He's not going to die, silly. It's an adventure. Buddy is feeling adventurous and sometimes adventure can feel a little bit scary or make us a little nervous, but it's good. It helps us grow." . . He started across the long and was doing great. Slight slip on a spot where the bark was loose and he faltered. I reassured him, "it's okay, you've got this" and he goes "oh! I remember! What you wrote on the mirror!" -Me, racking my brain trying to remember what he was talking about- "do not move the way that the fear makes you move". Instant tears. "That's right buddy, yes, don't move the way fear makes you move. How can we move?" "Without fear?" "Well, yes. But we can move with other feelings too. With love, right? With joy. With curiosity..." . . He finished his walk back beaming, and then the girls each wanted a turn. As each of them got nervous where the bark was loose, he would say "don't move the way fear makes you move!" And cheer them on. . . The thing is- I didn't teach him that quote. I hadn't written it for him. But he saw me write it for my dance students. And that's the thing about kids, I always think of the phrase "kids learn more from what's caught, than what's taught." Because it is so true. I'm so glad they are catching good things. ✌🏻❤🙏🏻 . . . . . . . #raisingwolves#movewithjoy#naturetherapy#natureschool#trailbabies#naturerocks#getoutside#belove
... 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 Allow me to introduce myself to you. If you haven’t read my posts, my name is Jimmy & I’m really into the outdoors,, nature, wilderness. Allot of my photographs recently are reflecting the winter here in Minnesota 🇺🇸 which was quite snowy & cold. I love getting out into the outdoors and one of my passions is taking pictures I think the way to stay young in life is to have a true sense of wonder so whatever you’re wondering about go check it out look into it, maybe you want to learn how to do something Google it and invest in your personal training and find yourself learning new skills that’s a great way to feed your curiosity, and your mind will then be answering these questions that you have. . . So don’t put it off engage yourself and find yourself doing these things this will allow you to facilitate a fuller dimension to yourself. ~Sometimes life can get Mundane & linear and that’s when you need to put new breath into it things by getting out into the outdoors! you can find yourself discovering new things and through the peace and beauty of nature it’ll restore you to full fruition so that you can manifest whatever it is you want in your life. . . My thing is about Encouragement I think myself personally I love to be encouraged it’s sort of a commodity today and so if I can encourage you in anyway to live up to your dreams and to follow through with your inclination by all means do that you have my full support and I hope you do well by just simply following through with Where ever your heart leads you. Remember you must be true to your path in life that is an inner quality to your self talk don’t dismiss the things you’re thinking and asking of your self~~ACTUALIZE them and bringing them to life! I hope you like my posts tell your friends about me and keep on moving on. . . . . .
Who’s got loads of hot wheels cars rolling around the house? The kids both like playing with them and it’s often in quiet independent play so they are such a great thing to have! But if you wanted to get a bit more creative, why not make a car wash for them to drive through? I made this one using a milk bottle with some holes alone the side, then I glued on some toilet rolls which I then secured to something with a bigger base to hold it steady (I had these discs from @reversegarbageqld which is a great ace to pick up loose parts). Pop the hose into the bottle spout and turn it on with only a little pressure.

Jackfruit, or mfenesi, is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world and had sooooo many uses! . . . We met Gideon at the farmer’s market this weekend, where he hacks open the ripe fruit for customers. When I asked him if he had unripe jackfruit, he got quite excited. “Why? Do you know how to cook it”?, he asked. Why yes, Gideon. Yes. . . . He didn’t have any at his stand but just delivered this to our house, and is coming back tomorrow for a cooking lesson. How fun is this! I showed him pictures of the pulled jackfruit I make and he bubbled with joy. He had tried it once and didn’t have the technique. It’s on. Cook-off tomorrow! 🙌🏻

Lately, i’ve been having a hard time just trusting the process. But i’ve recently done some thinking on the idea and it made me realize that I can not control anything. Literally anything at all. Even our own bodies fail us sometimes and we have no idea how to fix it. So i’m trying to apply that thinking into everything in life and realize if i can’t fix something as close to me as my own body, what makes me think that i’ll be able to control all the exterior factors of my life? will update on how that process goes, still in the beginning stages 😂
We have tried for years to capture bioluminescence on film. It’s AMAZING in real life, but so fleeting and dark that cameras have a hard time capturing it. . Well, the bioluminescence was so incredible in the Perlas Islands that we finally got this shot. And it’s pretty close to a true representation of what it looks like, just a little grainy. . This is our anchor chain stirring up the water as the current flows under the boat. As the water hits the chain it set of an incredible light show. It was mesmerizing. Like watching a firework display or a fire. Occasionally a really bright spark would fly. The Perlas Islands were far better than any of the “bioluminescent bays” we have visited in the past. They have to get the word out! . If you come to the Las Perlas islands, try to time your visit with no moon. We got lucky and this was a light show we will never forget! . . PS: we are underway to the Galapagos and this is a scheduled post. We’ll try to comment or reply when we hit land in a couple days! . . #bioluminescent#bioluminescence#sealife#lightshow#naturerocks#jellyfish#lasperlas#cruisinglife#anchoring
