having faith.

new perspective - grizzly peak - berkeley, ca

i find it quite simple to believe in others.  i have the ability to see the essence of someone whether they are excelling or in their greatest depths.  again and again, i am amazed by the strength of those who are tried to their very core.

this is the time to learn to give myself the gift i give others.
a time to be bold and continue with faith in the journey to come.

walking slowly in warm waves.

not too shabby - kaanapali beach, maui

you can own it all, but you don't have a damn thing if you can't enjoy the parts of life that are free (that is, after you've paid for the flight and hotel).

look up.  look down.  look allllll around.  this is the life.

peonies - my desk- oakland, ca

these are my last hours as a twenty-six year old.  i have made so many life changes in the past twelve months, and i have braved the life work that followed.  here is to another year of taking it all head on.

while walking.

blossoms - bonsai garden - lake merrit, oakland
there are certain days that i am overwhelmed by my own happiness and the place i have come to in my life. today is one of those days that i have tears in my eyes on an hourly basis. babies smile at me, i eat a bomb portion of homemade rigatoni pasta, and i just feel loved from so many directions. it is an overwhelming feeling to know that i am very much where i should be, while still being very much on my way.

woman down.

pink satin booties - chanel - sf, ca

i've been working on my fitness, and yesterday i challenged myself to run four miles of my 4.7 mile loop. feeling like quite the bad ass, i ran those four miles and actually enjoyed it. that is, until i ate it, palms first, into the asphalt just one block from my house.

i think there should be a rule: if you see a person fall in public, at least extend them the courtesy to ask if they are okay. i don't need somebody to rub my back. but those two cars stopped at the stop sign where i fell each had drivers. and neither of them bothered to ask.

so i picked myself up, wrapped my raw right paw into my shirt, and quickly walked home with major adrenaline pumping. i kept my composure until i crossed the threshold of my apartment--as soon as i knew i was within ten feet of jon, i lost it. why do hand injuries hurt so damn much? awful!

thanks to dr. libbey, i survived :) so be safe out there your exercisers. your own two feet can really do a number.
