There is a formula for just about everything under the sun in my opinion! If you or someone you know is having a hard time REMAINING encouraged, send them this! I believe wholeheartedly it’ll help them and you! Thanks again @corrie_lingenfelter for the opportunity to be apart of “Stay Encouraged: The Series” #eMessage#encouragement#motivationalspeaker
Your imagination is the canvas of your soul. Whatever you can dream, you can do! If it is meaningful enough to capture your imagination, it is meaningful enough to bring into the world! ————————————————
You were born in the image of the ultimate Creator which means you have infinite ability to create. You are only limited by what you will allow yourself to imagine! ————————————————
Albert Einstein said “"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
Sadly, many dreams remain in people’s imagination and eventually die with them. We have to have the courage to really believe that what can be conceived in our imagination can be achieved in reality.

It would seem that with increased ease of living, luxury at our fingertips, and variety of foods and beverages smothering our commercial feeds, we should become happier and healthier, or at least a little less stressed .
The reality is that as the square foot of the average American household has increased, so has our probability of developing mental health disorders. We've chosen space for stuff over connection with people .
For decades, we've documented less industrialized nations having dramatically fewer to zero cases of PTSD, depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety (to name a few). Understandably, mass shootings, serial killers, and suicides occur RARELY in these same cultures .
So how... how is this happening ?
When we over focus individual gain and hoard resources over our fellow man, we end up disconnected from one another. We fail to serve those who need us. We seek to be numb from our painful secluded realities .
We can't even connect with our families. We separate from our children who are expected to learn how to respect and practice patience while mimicking our own numbing behaviors behind the glow of a tablet screen .
It's not that consumerism is bad. However, we must seek to increase connection; with ourselves, family, friends, and community .
To connect authentically is the ONLY way to fully recover from the ailments we face as individuals as well as a nation.
🎉 OUR TOUR AROUND THE US KICKS OFF THIS WEEK! It's kind of wild to think that this time last year, THIS chapter of my life wasn't even on my radar. I am so thankful for the opportunity to share my story at @REI stores all over the country, and I hope to catch you on the road or on the trail!
Here's what to expect this weekend:
THE TALK (Friday, 7pm @ Tustin REI):
After surviving two of the hardest years of her life, Sydney Williams (@sydneyunfiltered) was standing in an REI dressing room trying on hiking gear for her first backpacking trip. Looking back in the mirror was a woman (and body) she didn't recognize. She looked herself in the eye and simply asked, "GIRL, how did we get here?" It was a rhetorical question for the dressing room, but two thru-hikes across Catalina Island helped Williams establish the mind-body connection that was necessary for her to be able to face her trauma head-on and leave everything on the trail. The first hike on the Trans-Catalina Trail was the hardest physical challenge Williams had ever tackled; it taught her how to love her body, and reminded her that she could do hard things. Nine months before her second journey, she was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. By the time she hiked the island the second time, Williams was 60 pounds lighter. What would be possible if the hike itself wasn't the hard part? The second hike was a complete emotional excavation, examining and releasing the weight of expectations she had placed on herself, while reclaiming her shine. Less than 18 months since her diagnosis, Williams' diabetes is now in remission. Get inspired & learn more about how to heal your mind+body on the trail.
