Has anyone else been watching #seriesofunfortunateevents or did anyone else love the books as a kid? The fifth book, with the boarding school, has a motto ‘Remember you will die’. It’s meant to be dark-comedy but the saying has popped up in many other places as a more positive rhetoric. It’s basically a less upbeat way of saying ‘yolo’. I broke my clean living plan (Patagonia ice cream was too tempting on a hot day by the lake!) but you only live once, so we constantly need to assess what is beneficial for our long-term lifestyle and when we need to relax and enjoy life to the fullest. Life is all about balance and I can extend my clean eating plan a little longer after I’d planned to finish to make up for enjoying a wonderful moment, in a beautiful place, with the best company I could wish for. Make memories, be kind, make good choices, never stop creating your legacy and doing the things that will enrich your life. “valar morghulis” “valar dohaeris” #allmenmustdie #yolo #live #lifestyle #travel #writersofinstagram #book #tv #movie #wanderlust #bucketlist #holiday #expatlife #health #cleaneating #active #fitness #mountain #hiking #adventure #backpacking #explore #sky #water #nature #landscape #earthpix #outdoors #sport

The best way to advise people, is to ask them what they want, then tell them to do that. People need to be intrinsically motivated to really succeed, so their goals and motivation have to be their own. I almost committed to a ski season in Japan before realising that I wanted to travel further but not to live in Asia again. The more I spoke to people about my intended season, the more I realised I was excited by the travel but not by the job or that length of time skiing on the same mountain. In the end, my friends helped me realise I needed to rethink my year. I had the best time travelling and meeting locals in the cities, rather than living with tourists in the mountains.

If hiking in New Zealand has taught us anything, it’s to keep our destination in mind. We tramped round and round in circles on this particular trek, passing this spot several times! When we got fed up of trying the same thing and getting the same results, we had a proper look at the map and planned a step-by-step route to get to where we wanted. Instantly, we felt less lost and hopeless. It’s the same in life! You don’t need Search and Rescue, you need to look at your current situation versus where you want to be and decide how you can cover the distance. Once you have focus and vision, you commit to achieving it. All your internal thoughts influence the words you say. Your words become your actions. Your actions then become your habits, which in turn, become your values. Your values will steer you through your life! So think about where you’re going and what will get you there! #tunnelvision #tunneloftrees #naturephotography #landscape #sea #mountain #tree #forest #trek #trailrunning #hiking #lost #adventure #explore #travel #ambition #dream #goals #walking #date #romantic #motivation #inspire #wanderlust #backpacking #problemsolving #destination_wild #wilderness #lgbt #fitness

Everything changes! The tasks and activities that seem most important to you now, that take up the most time in your day and in your thoughts, will probably be irrelevant to you in a few years time. When I see old photos of myself riding horses, I’m reminded of how passionate (cough, obsessed) I was about all things equestrian as I was growing up. I couldn’t image my life without horses yet now, I’ve discovered new dreams and when horses didn’t fit that lifestyle, I let it go. As much as I loved horse riding, I’m so glad I had an open mind to new ways of life and took an obscure path that felt right for me. Be open to new opportunities people! Life is too short to keep doing one thing for your whole life because you never bothered to check what else is out there. PS if you find somebody who you trust, love and respect through all the changes in your day to day activities, don’t let them go!!

If you can get yourself motivated enough and stay motivated enough, where would you be in five years time? Or ten? Or twenty? Figure out what problems are standing between you at your current state and where you want to be. The journey to get there is a series of problems that you need to find solutions to. If what you’ve been doing isn’t working, be open minded, creative and innovative to solve the problems in a new way #travelphotography #travel #girlswhotravel #hiking #adventure #explore #outdoors #naturephotography #naturalbeauty #landscape #water #waterfall #view #horizon #planner #motivation #inspiration #wanderlust #bucketlist #trailrunning #fitness #fitgirl #fitnessmotivation #travelinspiration #southamerica #nationalpark #worldwonder #river

Today was the perfect day off with the other half, after a long week at work. Making time for each other in this beautiful weather reminds me to make a life, instead of worrying about making a living! We packed a tasty, all-organic picnic, which kept me on track for my ‘30 days to healthy living’ plan and I’m already feeling less up-and-down energy levels since I stopped drinking coffee. My skin hasn’t had a single breakout (even over the worst time of the month) despite long working hours and today’s suncream.

Sometimes we need to take a moment for ourselves, to visualise where we are going and how we’re going to get there. Our visions need to be in line with what we want because desire is not the same as motivation. Visualising how to get what you want is more than wanting it badly enough. As the old mantra goes: failing to plan is the same as planning to fail, so you won’t get where you want through hard work alone. You have to work smarter and motivate yourself to get there. Nobody else is as invested in you reaching your goals as you are. I had South America in my head the whole way round the world and filled in the countries along my route. It did not disappoint and I’m so glad I got organised and got my butt all the way over there #travel #travelblogger #writetotravel #writersofinstagram #naturephotography #landscapephotography #wanderlust #bucketlist #lost #southamerica #brazil #argentina #iguazufalls #beautifuldestination #rainbow #waterfall #outdoors #activelifestyle #lifestyle #adventure #explore #wild #earthpix #backpacking #expatlife #nomad #intothewild #planetearth

The most beautiful sight in the world 😍 Sometimes I need to be told (firmly!) that I’m not on my own and that help is there when I need it. Couldn’t be more grateful for the support and fun... even if her bedtime stories are twisted AF 😂 #fun #partner #partnerworkout #lesbian #lgbt #love #happiness #hiking #adventure #explore #couplegoals #beach #beachbody #sea #lifestyle #travel #expatlife #outdoors #fitness #active #trail #naturephotography #landscape #newzealand #wanderlust #support #beautiful #fitgirl #sun #wild

Happy Halloween from a vegan zombie king, a Canadian cowgirl, a Yorkshire lad in make-up and myself (with about the same level of dark circles under my eyes as I ever had when teaching ESL!)

Can you remember a time when you didn’t think you could do something, which is now second nature and enjoyable? I love going for a run now I’m not training for any particular race. There’s no pressure now but the training I did (and sometimes had to really push myself to do!) when I was under pressure to do it has lasting benefits. By running marathon distance multiple times and maintaining cardio fitness in other ways over the years, I can still cover 12km whenever I feel like it, without any aches, tiredness or regular training. Running is now so ingrained in my muscle memory, that it’s a treat to me, as a break from my current training routines! In short: dream big, train smart and enjoy the results and healthy habits you create for the rest of your life! Complete the big goal and you’ll always know you can do anything less easily. Your playing small does not serve the world. Run as fast and as far and through as many beautiful places as you possibly can!! #running #trailrunning #hiking #adventure #explore #outdoors #active #activewear #beach #beachbody #motivation #inspiration #travel #landscape #nature #wanderlust #fitness #mountain #sea #sun #newzealand #fitgirl #health #lifestyle #pushyourlimits #expatlife #surf @oneill #dreambig

Day-dreams are dreams you can choose to turn into reality. Our day trip to the west coast beaches had a little bit of every outdoorsy dream! Sun, sea, sky, rocks to scramble on, caves to explore, hidden trails to discover and most importantly, a bunch of really great snacks.... oh, and decent company too #beach #fitness #rockclimbing #trailrunning #hiking #adventure #sea #picnic #date #newzealand #travel #outdoors #nature #landscape #cave #summer #sun #beachbody #fitgirl #explore #activelife #lifestyle #colour #beautifuldestination #wanderlust #travelblogger #dream #daydream #inspiration #snacks

Making time for yourself in important. We are a work is progress. Invest time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change your perception, so it can benefit your life. New scenery always helps, so why not make it a beautiful new place 😍🌍📖 #countrygirl #newzealand #hiking #beachlife #beach #mountain #island #tree #sea #ocean #water #naturephotography #outdoors #lifestyle #travelblogger #travel #growthmindset #success #mind #sand #paradise #roadtrip #sky #watersport #surf #shadow #landscape #adventure #explore
