I have seen and heard so much yuckiness that many have shared as they cursed the world and so much of 2016. Here's the thing. Each and every year brings with it moments that take my breathe away. I have laughed until I cried. I have cried until I laughed. Through all of the winding twists of this year's river, I look back feeling grateful to have been here for it all.
I am keeping everyone in my thoughts and I truly hope that those seeking it find the peace and calm that they are hoping the world will bring as the clock ticks, the ball drops, and we cheer Happy New Year.
Whether you do or not, I hope you will remember that each minute of each and every day is a chance to be you, live your adventure life, and do something that matters to you.
We all matter and we all have so many amazing gifts to share. It may not always seem like we are doing enough, but doing something that matters is enough.
I look back on 2016, I remember today (and the above image that I created while on backcountry skis for the first time), and I look out toward 2017 filled with inner peace.
Many thanks and warm wishes to my friends near and far who have supported and followed my work. I hope you will continue to join me in choosing to see the beauty of this amazing world each moment, of every day, and throughout the year!
