"If they made a monster out of you because you walked away from their drama, so be it. Let them with what they have created. Be at peace with yourself, and stay out of conflict." - Dodinsky It's not always an easy decision to walk away but if it takes away from your energy or is keeping you from serving others you have to ask yourself what the relationship is costing you and if it's worth it. . . . everything_imaginable_ winterfrost jj_seasons instagramyeg sprucetree tv_closeup canadianphotographer pocket_canada tree_lovers explorealberta canadiancreatives opcmag sharecangeo country_features canadiantraveller tv_stilllife spruceneedles renegade_rural 4theluvofpix nature tree_brilliance exploretocreate imagesofalberta unlimitedcanada

"God didn't give you another day because you needed it, He added it because someone out there needed you." I love this. It's a great reminder that we are here to serve one another.

I have fought depression all my life. Mild funks to deep, kill yourself despair. Thankfully, I discovered it doesn't have to control you. At my darkest point, I awoke in a pool of shame with my head in a toilet barely remembering the night before. I'd left meeting up with the family chosen to raise my baby. I was living as a drunken, doped up disaster who felt unworthy of this precious, new life & felt unable to care for him. If memory serves me the family dropped me to the bus station where I boarded. Soon after making myself a snack of prescription meds. Numbing the internal whisper of, "Look what you did. Everyone is right about you. You deserve to die." The bus was heading to a party with hopes of burying my broken heart & drowning the hateful voices. Selfishly in my pain I was on a destructive mission,not giving a crapola about anything.That evening poured quickly downhill. Thankfully, God saved me that dark night like he had many times before.Things that could of been much worse diverted by a force bigger than me. It's a miracle I'm here today. That morning lifting my face out of the can, I heard quietly in my heart, "How would you feel if your baby saw you like this?" I broke down sobbing. That day I made a decision for him & awhile after I made a decision for me. For him, I would live & do better. For me, that depression would not rob me of any more. My friend, I'm not going to tell you it's an easy turn around.It is awaking every day & making a choice to live.Those negative voices still whisper to me at times but it's gotten less frequent & enticing. You will fall flat on your face. It will hurt but not as much as regret. Happiness is possible. Get. Help. Do whatever it takes! In those dark moments that say no one cares is A LIE. You are loved! You matter! If God can pull my mess up out of a toilet He can meet you in your deepest hurts & darkest moments.Truly living can be hard & scary sure but in it is some of the most beautiful moments you'll miss by choosing not to fight.It doesn't matter the crime you committed. Forgive yourself. Fix it. Dust yourself off & choose life! Choose love. Choose you. ❤️

I love Alberta from one end to the other. It's no question the place I consider home. The prairies, the hills, the mountains,the storms, the wildlife, etc. Every bit of it. In the borders of this province is where my heart feels the best. 99% of my days this is the feels I have for this place on Earth. Buuuuut, I'm not going to lie, sometimes there is the odd day like the one pictured above that I look at my surroundings and think, "Why the heck don't I live in British Columbia?!?!" 😂 Where on Earth is your heart at home?

Almost a year ago I was shown that I have been living my life like a narcissist, entitled ass with a victim mentality. Interestingly enough, this behaviour is one I've looked down on, so you can imagine how that mirror reflecting truth back felt like. To be faced with this truth was not only unpleasant it cut deep. I could feel the knife cutting into this part of my life. Like God was starting to perform a surgery to remove it from my body. "You want to serve people? Well, you can't effectively like this. This isn't your story. Let. it. go." Fast forward a year later. (Yup, I did a little jogging from the truth.) Every now & then I'd check in, let the surgery go a little bit more then up & jog away again not willing to face the pain of the truth. To today where I stand here almost bled to death of any ounce of what truly living should look like. Finally standing still long enough to allow the rest of the healing to be completed. Finally getting to the point where the truth hurt less than the emotional and spiritual crap holding me back. I can't even begin to tell you how much this old story has hurt me & others. How it has robbed from the big picture. I wanted to share this because this issue isn't just affecting me. Narcissism & entitlement is all around us, practiced on some level by all of us. My friend, when the truth really hurts face it head on. Allow the surgery of growth. If it isn't serving you then that means its also not serving others. Which means you're not just hurting yourself. You're hurting others too. If we want to make a difference we have to be willing to change even when it hurts. If you can relate to this I want to share with you what I'm learning. Everything in our lives is a gift to be grateful for. We aren't more important than anyone else. We don't just deserve things. We are safe. We don't need to be rescued by our parents or anyone else anymore. We need to put on our big people pants. No one owes us a damn thing. We're not helpless. We have way more strength than we give ourselves credit for. Just look at how far we've come. We CAN do things the hard way, the fruitful way and God is most definitely willing to help us.

I've been thinking a lot lately on how perfect our IG feeds can seem to others. Brands or individuals alike can get caught in this trap. We share happy thoughts, the best quote we can find, make it seem like our lives are the best lives ever, when behind the scenes it can be an absolute mess. It's curious to me that even with myself on other social media platforms I've been more transparent but on IG I tend to hold back. My truth is this, I am an absolute mess at times. I am human. I am learning. I am growing. I want to share the truth. My truth. Even when it's hard. I want to make a difference by sharing my experiences and inspiring you to make a difference in your way too, even when it's hard. I want a better world and want to inspire you to want it too. To inspire and instil in others that we can be that change we so desperately seek if we stand up and speak our truths. Here's to a new day my friend, let's get a bit messy! Let's speak more of our truths! How do you want to inspire others? . . . trb_rural speakingyourtruth country_features country_stilllife landscapeinspiration canadiancreatives instagram the_mirror_of_our_souls tv_churchandgraves fineartphotography womanownedbusiness landscape_kings albertahistory graveyard_beauty countrygirlatheart pixeltheplanet dark_decay rural_life renegade_rural ukrainianchurch faithgoals opcmag sharecangeo imagesofalberta canadianphotographer 4theluvofpix churchandgraves everything_imaginable_ oldchurches ethereal_moods

This farm looked absolutely stunning covered in frost and haze as the sun started to break through the clouds. It was a nice surprise find after taking a wrong turn on one of my recent freezing ventures. Makes me think of life and how sometimes we go down "wrong" turns and when you're there you end up picking up a tool that you need on your journey down the road. If you hadn't taken that turn you may not of found that tool. Even if we don't feel we are where we need to be there's a good chance in the big picture that the detour was needed for success. The hard part is to trust the process. . . . renegade_community renegade_rural instagram dailyviewedmonton dailyviewedmonton instagramyeg frostyfarm rural_love imagesofalberta 4theluvofpix splendid_outskirts canadiancreatives pocket_canada canadianphotographer canadianweather canadianwinter ig_myshots country_features country_stilllife nature_brilliance natureenthusiast opcmag travelalberta allbeauty_addiction sharecangeo winterscape exploringnature landscapeinspiration

This photo pretty much sums up my very quick session with the moon yesterday morning at 6am. It may not be great but I'm celebrating going straight from a warm cozy bed to -34 wind chill to go shoot over my fence before the neighbourhood woke and turned on their lights. My hands are a bit burnt and there may be some skin missing but that's okay. Why? Because I tried and got to see some amazing super blue blood moon history.

Photography never fails to teach me things. I was slightly annoyed that the heart was in my shot when taking this. I thought, "No biggie, I'll edit it out later." Then I get home and it ends up being why I love the shot! Sometimes you have to step back in a situation or look at it in another light to find the positives. I promise it's there where you least expect it. Other times it's right in front of your face. 😊 --------------------------- you ever carve a heart like this somewhere?

Too often we can underestimate the power of kind words. Like the words that show someone we really see them through the trees. (Yes, that's really the cheesy way I tied in today's photo. Lol) Let's face it, it's simple enough to overlook. We are all people who are busy living out battles and journeys of all kinds. It's very easy to get wrapped up in ourselves. Have you ever had a moment of frustration where you want to give up? Where you say to yourself, "What's the point? No one notices anyway!" Can you relate? I know I sure can! Here's the thing, we've all been there. Want to know how to be a change in this area? One: We can celebrate our accomplishments more. Big or small. If we can't celebrate our victories why should anyone else? Two: Tell someone we look up to today what we admire them for. I promise there's a good chance your words will be like cold water on a hot day. (Or beer if that's your preference. 😁) Because again, if we can't celebrate someone else how can we expect them to do it for us. Plus, you never know. Your words could be what pulls them back out of a hard struggle. Maybe it'll uplift them enough not to quit. Just like how you feel in those times, they are no different. What you give will come back to you my friend. Let's start today & tag someone below and tell them why we admire them. . . . trb_bnw bnw_kings country_features freedomofchoice bnw_dark canadiancreatives flair_bw the_mirror_of_our_souls interiordesigninspiration findingpurpose renegade_dark landscape_kings bnw_lovers bonaccord countrygirlatheart landscapeinspiration pumpkinpatchfun rural_life renegade_rural gourds igyeg opcmag sharecangeo imagesofalberta canadianphotographer 4theluvofpix pumpkinpatch everything_imaginable_ ethereal_moods monoart_

Here's something I've been pondering lately. "Are we really broken?" My childhood was a mix of sexual, mental, emotional, physical & spiritual abuse. Thankfully, at the age of 15, I received much needed help and was able to move out of the harmful situations. Since then I've been on a journey of working through the layers of issues that comes with trauma & abuse by therapy,prayer, self improvement books, mentors, etc. In the past year I've hit another emotional/mental/spiritual growth spurt that has me pondering. I always felt broken or like something was wrong with me. Like I'd never be good enough or worthy of love. I was taught unhealthy cycles to ensure love growing up. Even though a lot of times it wasn't love that I received in return at all. It was just a different form of crappy cycles. And when it was love, I was too buried in baggage to be able to accept it. What came to me this past year is there is nothing wrong with me. I'm not broken but deeply hurt. What I also found was an identity buried in other people's lies, projections and stories about who I was to them in their dysfunction. In truth, most of it was absolute BS. I am loved and so much more than other people's projections. I wanted to share this to hopefully challenge you. If you're feeling any of these feelings ask yourself, "Is it true or was I told something as a child that I've never tested?" Often times as adults we don't question what we were taught as kids. We take the word of the people taking care of us. Never thinking that they too had their struggles and stories. Which of course adds complications to our lives. The stories of me being unloveable, being unworthy of love, being stupid, being nothing more than a toy for someone's addictions, being fat, etc. These were all someone else's stories I took on as my own. Can you see what I mean? Please, challenge yourself if you don't feel like enough or you have cycles that just keep repeating themselves. Ask yourself why? And where did that belief come from? Who's story was it? Remember in your search, God doesn't make junk. You are amazing my friend! Find out what the root of you not believing that is. ❤️ landscapeinspiration
