#Perseverance on the night of these photos being taken i endured a cold wet night in my tent at a magical spot called island bend. The amazing lesson learned that night was my comfort threshold is greater then i initially had thought.
Id videoed my kids showing them how amazing the location was and i ended up getting pretty wet in the process because of the constant rain that day.
A few things lined up against me. 1. i was drenched in an area that still had negative tempretures in the night. 2. My dry bag holding my tent, sleeping bag and and towl had a puncher so everything was damp and 3. I hadnt experienced that sort of enviroment beforehand.
I woke up around 2am freezing my fingers were numb and my nose stinging. To top it off i couldnt find my torchlight in the zero vis no light so i unzipped my tent to let the moon light in and have a look. Upon opening the tent i still couldnt see anything and a sense of claustriphobia came over me. I eventually found my light and realised the fog had set in so hard that i could only see a few feet infront of me.
At this point panic set in realising that i cant see. Im freezing and its 2am in the morning. A dangerous urge to get on my bike and ride to jindabyne was super strong but i realised i had to calm myself down and think logically about the situation. Which was put all my dry gear in my sleeping bag, set my gas cooker to a low heat and warm my hands then make a warm tea to drink to warm my core.
The next day upon reflecting on the drama that had unfolded was the realisation that i was able to think rationally and push my comfort threashold. As a result of coming out in a positive i became a stronger man in knowing that i could calm my anxieties, think rationally and preserve through something that i initially felt overwhelmed by. #mentalhealth#happy#happyplace#rad#life#challenges#overcome#think#clear#stay#alive#adventure#dreams#threshold#so#fun#2018#awareness
Today is exam day! (Intermediate Foundation ballet) ♡ I hope that I can successfully channel my inner goddess vibes and pass with flying colours!
Topic of the day: what makes you divine? My ability to shape my own destiny. It doesn't matter what happens, how many setbacks life sends me, I'll always pick myself back up and reinvent myself and my life in a way that better serves me. I'm in a phase of metamorphosis again now - I used to be afraid of it but now I'm excited to see where I end up
