Maui Boat Races
Don't let the naysayers stop you from chasing your dreams just because they are too scared to chase their own.
No life is painless or perfect. Every person goes through something that hurts occasionally. I believe that the hardest journeys result in the most beautiful outcomes.
Rowena the Beautiful
Watching this river flow so peacefully yet powerfully is like tapping into a power that tells you your soul can do the same, you are meant for more than you think.
Cannons on the Beach
Don't let trials turn you back. Usually, the best things fighting for take just that...a fight. Keep going!
Rowena at Sunrise
I have always had a hard time explaining the draw that nature has on me and the cleansing effect it radiates. Photos are the closest I think I will ever come to explaining it.
Destin for Flight
Just like a baby bird has to fall to fly, we have to take a leap of faith and chase our dreams
When sand is beaten and continuously compacted by water it can develop quite a mirror-like surface. Seeing the reflection of Haystack Rock was moving and humbling.
Many people believe places like this do not exist simply because they haven't seen them in real life. The key to real life is that we choose to seek out these places, or seek out the impossible opportunities that our inner selves dream about. That decision to seek makes all the difference.
Many people believe they are just in this world as an unimportant bystander. I strongly disagree. I believe every single person has a talent they can share with the world to make it a better place.
You can't watch sunsets like these or see natural phenomenon and not feel loved. That love is God letting you know he knows you personally and he is rooting for you.
If you've ever stood in a river you know the power of water. Water is perplexing because it can be calm, deadly, serene, or determined. It can take on its own personality and has always amazed me.
Sail Your Ship
Life is not about avoiding the storms or finding the path of 100% success. It's about growing, struggling, working hard, and becoming a better version of your self. Take advantage of the calm moments in order to battle the storms.
The light will always win against the dark times, but sometimes we give up and close our eyes instead of continuing to hope.
Hope can not be taken from you, it can only be given up. Numerous impossible ideas began with just hope. Don't back down.
Kirkham Ridge Trail
Hope usually shows up after we have climbed the mountain.
Snell Park Sunset Moon
We each have a light all our own that will shine no matter what anyone else thinks of us. It only matters what we think of ourselves.
Antelope Canyon Sunbeam
There are so many moving parts in life that seem to way me down. Views like this remind me that I am here to become a better person than I was yesterday and to help others. Everything else can be left up to God.

When was the last time you were outside? When was the last time you actually looked up and appreciated the things above you?
Snell Park Sunset
We are all born with dreams, yet over time we give up on them. Those who are happiest continue to make their dreams a reality. Don't let society tell you whats possible.
