Finding things that humble me

traveling for no reason with no itinerary, if you've never done it you are missing out truly. 
the world is such a large place, it's easy to get sucked into the mundane everyday humdrum and forget that there is a great big whirlwind of wild adventure awaiting. I have been contemplating getting "yes man" tattooed on me. traveling is beautiful, it not only stretches our imaginations but it reminds us how darn small we are. 

being a mum and a wife can forge an overwhelming sense of selflessness leaving you to escape only at the wee hours of the night with a novel in a candle lit bubble bath. I've learned to reset how I look at things, you are in charge of your point of view, no matter how hopelessly stranded your situation may seem... you can change the way you see life. put aside all the pointless lessons your mothers, fathers, teachers, classmates, etc. have instilled in that beautiful brain of yours and create your own way of looking at things. brush your teeth with your Non-handed hand haha, (i'll give you a second to figure that one out)... 

I had an adult vision the other day, this is my life. I'm in charge of how I think, how I perceive. hmm... i've been trying to fit into a box for so long, all the things my brain has sketched into it that seem to be "proper".. it finally hit me, "this is MY HOUSE, MY FAMILY" throw all the expectations out the window and what do you have left? well, i don't want to spoil the surprise...

I have found joy in buying giant seagrass/jute/sisal rugs and painting them with gorgeous patterns instead of drudging through catalogs and trying to find what "fits"... I taught myself to venetian plaster, hahahaha thank you internet for the diy how to...

the car driving the exact speed limit in front of you whilst your in a hurry through a canyon, don't honk your horn and be a turd burglar, perhaps they lost a loved one in a car accident or were involved in a serious one themselves, YOU NEVER KNOW. YOU ARE NOT THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE. revelation!! wow! you have a choice. be kind, be loving, smile when someone gives you a dirty look. ( i get them a lot i'm assuming it's due to the excess artwork i've collected) 

seriously though, this is a jumble of thoughts and i just wanted to say. LOVE LIFE. make your own rules, if you want to buy two king size beds and put them next to one another then haggardly learn to sew two set of sheets together so your kids can sleep with you for as long as they think you're "cool" DO IT. I'm so much happier now that I've put all my past behind me and am creating a new future. Explore yourself, make mistakes and don't be afraid to take naughty b/w photos with your husband and blow them up have them framed and hang them in your bedroom. 

Kyle and I have a rule, we have to makeout before bed, every single night. no matter if you're tired, in a row, etc. full on teenager make out. life is good, and plant some flowers. 

put your iphone down and stop social networking, enjoy the moment. become 2200% involved in whatever you are doing at that very moment, whether it be watering your garden or coloring with your children. take a step back and live in the moment. 

there you have it. 
reveal yourself.<3

the consequences of the choices we make can be over bearing when we lose the chance to forgive.

meow meow

Let's talk about X games this year. wow. I was feeling pretty selfish sitting in the Emergency room watching my husband get his hand sewn back together. I kept thinking, how could this be happening? It was his LAST jump before we headed to LA. and bam! he would've gotten a Gold medal, no contest. But thankfully, I have a ton of faith in God. As I sat there, sick to my stomach (blood and bits of skin everywhere) I was trying not to laugh as Kyle was telling the Dr. to "hurry up, I've got to be in LA in 2 hours for practice" the dr gave me a look like, wow this guy isn't kidding huh? Kyle is one tough dude, if it wasn't for the 10 stitches holding his thumb on along with the squished thumb bone I don't know if anything could've stopped him from riding. BUT, I've learned a valuable lesson, watching and praying for the other riders safety all x, I started feeling grateful that Kyle didn't ride. The trick that he invented is not fun to watch for me. I've watched him do over 400 of them, no exaggerating, and i'm still blown away every single time he does it.
  Anyways, aside from my rambling, I'm proud of him. He at first was furious he couldn't ride. He worked SOO hard, he refuses to get anything less then Gold. He's a competitor, that's what drives him.. the innovation, the "scientist" in him, it's not any other aspect. This whole ordeal has morphed into the ideal equation for domination. He's not mad at himself anymore, he sat and watched freestyle, best trick, speed and style.. and all he kept saying was "I watched that exact run 4 years ago" and now he is skating everyday to keep his endurance up, working out like a mad man, and is so driven to take over every aspect of motorcross. The dr gave him a month until he is back on a bike, stitches come out in a few days...he wants to create the polar opposite of the"metal mulisha" where the focus is not being tough, fighting, cursing, etc. all the stereotypes of freestyle, but bring the sport to a higher level. I can't exactly say the tricks that he has dialed in, but I fully stand behind any decision he makes. aka we are going to be traveling a TON, he wants to get back to the reason he started riding. the fans, Riders 4 Christ, breaking every stereotype possible, the love of creating new tricks and landing them to dirt for the first time! God truly does have a bigger and better plan for every one of our lives, bigger than we can even start to imagine. So when you have your "sitting in the ER moment".... whatever that moment may be for you.. look up! Give all your stress and worry to the big man. Being a wife of a pro athlete, mother of two, daughter of a... well you get it... that's the only thing that has kept me going. Nothing can hold me down lately, I'm good. haha 

I love getting mail from people telling me how I've been able to help them thru difficult times in their lives just by going thru the hoops on tv. Let's open up a questions?advice column.. I want to help as many people as I can in any way I can. You guys are the reason that I stand up straight and keep pushing thru... LOVE YOU ALL!!
