  • "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." ~ Martin Luther King

For better or worse, and usually for better, #travel is one of the things that can be consistently counted on to change a person. Our richest #experiences in each place are when we connect with locals and become a #partoftheirworld 🌍. This peaceful #scenicoverlook is across the street from our favorite pizza joint 🍕 in the tiny village of Ceglie Messapica. We were introduced to the owner on our first night in town. A few weeks later, he saw us walking home from the farmer's market in town and stopped to offer us a ride home. At that time, we couldn't exactly remember if we knew him or not. But, we could tell he was a friendly person looking to help us out and we hopped in his car without question.

We would NEVER do this in the US! 😳 Okay...maybe if we were in small town America and we were comfortable with the locale, but only then!!! After a bit of driving 🚗 around because I gave him incorrect driving directions, he was able to figure out where we were staying based on who our neighbor was. Ha! That's the beauty of small town living in any country. ❤ Everyone knows everyone. ❤ "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

  • i’ll remember this day forever. it’s the day @ryanmaum and i did 4 different hikes within 24 hours + broke our record of most miles hiked in a day 🙌🏼 no better place to do it than out in Sedona!
_
we started the first trail at sunrise with headlamps and finished the day on top of a mountain at sunset with headlamps for the 2000ft back down (basically like hiking up and down lookout mountain for you chattanooga peeps!)

it’s amazing what the human body can do when you set your mind on something. i truly believe we can endure way more than we think we can at times. this was one of those days for me 💭 what’s an experience you’ve had where you’ve endured more than you thought you could? i’ll remember this day forever. it’s the day @ryanmaum and i did 4 different hikes within 24 hours + broke our record of most miles hiked in a day 🙌🏼 no better place to do it than out in Sedona! _ we started the first trail at sunrise with headlamps and finished the day on top of a mountain at sunset with headlamps for the 2000ft back down (basically like hiking up and down lookout mountain for you chattanooga peeps!) _ it’s amazing what the human body can do when you set your mind on something. i truly believe we can endure way more than we think we can at times. this was one of those days for me 💭 what’s an experience you’ve had where you’ve endured more than you thought you could?

  • ↟↟↟Tell me one thing you love about yourself... I'm serious! I want to hear, so pleaseee, take a second, think about it and then comment below! ✨🦋 #selflove #365daysofREAL

Yesterday I had my first encounter with a negative comment about my body on Instagram.
∞
I knew better than to take it personally, but I still felt it. The burn of their words, these strangers who don’t even know me, and yet a desire to defend or to explain myself...
∞
Then I remembered a word. Alchemy. It’s been a theme for me recently and I realized this was the perfect opportunity to put it into practice.
∞
I could allow their words to hurt me and continue the cycle of negative energy, or I could alchemize it, turn it into an opportunity for positivity and change the cycle completely.
∞
So I turned to myself in the mirror and I said I love you. And I thought about what I love about myself. And now I want to know what you love about you...
∞
Because THAT is the conversation we should be having here on this platform. Not of hate or hurt or judging others, but of love and connection. And whether you choose to share something below or not (though I really hope you do!) know that you are BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING as you are, and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise!
