When I look at this picture it takes me strait back to that moment. The emotion, the hardship and the adventure. I was uncomfortable, really really uncomfortable. If there had been an easy option for getting out at that moment, I may well have taken it.
Having laughed sooooo hard at some of Unlipped Adventures Cartoons (my most favourite Blog to read). I got inspired.
Whilst driving my bus, I sometimes run out of serious things to think about. Soo I ended up laughing at myself for all the funny places I have taken a wash. Mainly inspired by my not so bashful friend Bekx, my wash buddy in Corsica.
Now don't panic! I wont be giving up my day job, whether that be as a bus driver (which I am terrible at) or kayak coach. Buuuut.....I do feel it has potential for a documentary tho.
Fear of the unknown is natural, and recently looking at my blank diary for this coming summer the anxiety set in. I have been making a lot of changes recently, wanting new challenges in deferent places, and the uncertainty of freelance work is at the forefront of my mind. I may even go as far as saying I was stressing about it!
When in actual fact, this is such a negative view point. Surly having an open diary is opening you up to new opportunities. Having the freedom to say YES, when the right one comes along.
When I look through my pictures sometimes they remind me of memories, sometime they remind me of people, places or special times. But occasionally they remind me of traits, parts of my character I can be proud of. I am proud to be an Outdoor Girl and these are some of the elements I think that make us who we are.
Our rosy cheeks don't require blusher, rucksacks are for carrying gear, and mascara just runs when you go for a spontaneous wild swim. But you can't say we're not still beautiful, if a little ruff around the edges.
All my life I have been average. Hieght, weight, grades... I'd rather be amazing, but how can average ever be amazing?
So what am I going to be, when I grow up? Life is what we make it. I need to be more focused and make it happen.
