Month: April 2018

Thank you, Aspen

Snow in the spring?!

Yes, snow in the spring.

As someone born in April, I’ve become accustomed to experiencing rain during my birthday. It’s never bothered me because, well, it’s spring and everyone knows that “April showers, bring May flowers”. Though, for the past few years, I’ve opted for locales that experience little rain and have more sunshine to offer.

However, this year, I’ve challenged myself to break away from the familiar and step forward into the unknown. Uncertainty used to scare me because well, it’s unpredictable. But, having grown more spiritually, I’ve accepted that all of life is uncertain. Nothing is ever guaranteed and that can be a beautiful thing.¬† Having said as much, this year, I decided to enjoy my “Earth Day” in Aspen, Colorado. I’ve been to Park City, Utah a couple times and absolutely loved it. It’s something special about scenic mountains, small shops, and wildlife. Aspen has always been on my radar and this past week was a full circle¬†moment for me. Not only did powder white snow cascade from the sky and create one of the most picturesque landscapes I’d ever seen, having my loved ones with me, made the experience even more worthwhile.

Life is precious and yes, sometimes the downs feel horrible, but whenever you have an up, I know that it has to be savored. I love that I can look back a few years and could only dream of experiencing the things I do now. Staying committed to your path and trusting yourself to navigate through your obstacles and find your way, is audacious.

Aspen, thank you for your majestic beauty, positive vibes, and warmth. We felt the love.

Until next time,

Von
