Lately, I’ve been focused on work and schooling, excluding a fundamental aspect of my life. For me, nature is home and it is soul. The whispers of the wind and the serene stillness is the alchemy of materializing the spiritual. It is through experiencing this medium that I experience peace. @guadalupemountainsnps was always a National Park I remarked about with disdain. I’ve visited many and this one failed to catch my eye. After 7 miles and completing one of the best hikes of my life, I had to accept that I had placed my ego ahead of experience. I was forced to admit I was wrong. I’ve teamed up with @volcom and their fall season as a reminder to stay True to This. To me, being True to This means holding steadfast in myself, regardless of what happens in life. It means having the courage to admit I can be wrong and most importantly, it means keeping warm in the most cozy parka I have ever owned. Stay True to This and stay true to yourself! Swipe right to me me turn into an assassin. 🌄🐍🗡 Keep adventuring friends.
