Foggy Mountains in Golden, Colorado

Every Friday, my (favorite) CrossFit coach, Tom, asks the class what we are grateful for. Not only does it start the class off on a feel-good note, but it also provides a positive outlook on the best day of the work week: Friday.

This month, I’ve been reflecting on what I’m grateful for; not just on Friday’s. Does this make me an official lifestyle blogger now? In all serious, I think it’s set my mood up for success and it makes me stop and realize all that I do have. #blessed

Today I reflected on where I was a year ago. Today I was grateful for time in the sense that it moves us forward. It carries us away from toxic relationships, heals broken hearts, and brings new opportunities. I never could have imaged my life the way it is right now a year ago, but I’m sure as hell time brought me here.

I was a completely different person last year. Unrecognizable from where I’m standing. There was a dark rain cloud above my head and nothing seemed to go '“right.” Until this past summer, life began to turn around for me and it was all because of time. Anyway, I don’t want to dwell on the past because quite frankly, I’m over it. I’m just so happy to be here. In this moment.

At any rate, I think you get the point. In fluffier news, I’m also grateful for foggy mountains (if you didn’t already know). Below are some photos of my friend Katie and me chillin’ with nature’s finest and freezing our butts off. Enjoy.
