A lone horse grazing in a field 🐴

A few days behind but tomorrow morning I’m moving to Alabama for a few months to spend time with my girlfriend and her family! We have a 16 hour drive ahead of us but I’m very excited to see what there is to explore down south 🌳.

Life with chronic illness is hard but I refuse to sit around and let my life flash before my eyes. I refuse to give up the things I love. Sitting on a mountain is so humbling, and has shown me that my problems aren’t as big as they seem. Hiking gives me time to think and reflect and after today, I’ve realized so many things. Life will be ok. I took some time to reflect, because Instagram started to make me extremely depressed. All I saw was people going to Disney all the time, traveling, buying whatever they wanted, and I felt like my life was behind. But in reality, there is so much more to life than Disney and materialistic things and it’s unrealistic for me to be at Disney on a regular basis and travel all the time. I took the time on the summit today to figure out what was TRULY important to me - my education, career, family, and exploring. But there’s no set way to explore the world, and I have so many places I want to see and things to hike. Sitting on a mountain alone with nothing but the clouds and a dog really put things into perspective. My life may not be perfect, and I may not be an Instagram influencer, but I sure as hell work hard in school, constantly try to better my health, and dedicate myself to so many things. I’m grateful to be alive, and grateful to have climbed yet another mountain after almost two years of not climbing 14ers due to my health..

I haven’t been on here much at all the past five days. I didn’t plan on taking a break... it just kinda happened lol. Brad had a three day weekend so it was super nice spending time with him uninterrupted instead of spending an hour writing a caption or worrhiny about engaging with others throughout the day. I’ve also been shooting a lot and working on business outside of Instagram and it honestly felt good to be unapologetically absent on social media. I think it’s important to listen to your body/mind when it comes to these things. I think if I would have spent the past five days scrolling through Instagram because I felt like I was missing something rather than being present I would have a totally different mindset/relationship with social media than I do right now.⁣

Fun fact of the day: I rarely shoot vertical photos. 95% of the landscape images I post are the result of composing one shot with 2 pictures in mind, the main (wide) composition as well as a cropped (vertical) version for Instagram. It would be easier to either compose the shot vertically or leave distracting elements on the edges since I know they’re going to be chopped off anyway, but most of my images not only stand up in their original form, they’re better uncropped. 🔪🚫🖼 .

 If you’ve never seen the full versions, you can find many of them on my website (link in bio), or you can currently see a few in person (including this one) at the newly renovated @broadwaymarketbmore. Big thanks to @thebmorecreatives for making that happen. Basically what I’m saying is, check out the new @broadwaymarketbmore, even if you don’t go for my photos. 😋
