It seems just when I let go the universe works it’s magic and it all comes together. To be open and share my pain being received by such warmth and soft words is new to me. It’s new to be held when I was hurting, to be reminded I’m not crazy, to be told I’m capable, to be reminded I’m no less of a man or a Cassidy because I don’t have it all together sometimes. It’s amazing how a little bit of love and being seen can heal years of trauma bringing so much self confidence. I silently fought to be here, I survived! There is so much power in being held and understood, thank you to the slackline community for sharing this gift.
Little did I know on the exact day 2 years ago I stood on a 90m highline in New Zealand terrified thinking “This is not for me, no way I’ll ever walk a highline this scary.” I got off thinking I’m not capable of this, leave it to the Frenchies.. This passed weekend was one of those magical moments of letting go, with each step I breathed deeply and felt calm, when it got hard and I felt like giving up I yelled and gave it my all. Never really balanced but finding balance somewhere in between the calm moments and terrifying moments. Idk how many times I fell but I started at one end of a 90m highline and ended at the other end. It was so clear this was impossible just two years before and now with so much persistence, support and breath it’s possible! Highline’s are a great teacher to show us we are capable of so much more than we can imagine. // 📸 @tyler.smitty #slacklife#exploretolive#community#depressionawareness
Intended to take the shot from this angle. JK, I’m actually was a bit late to the spot and all the center position was taken... It turns out really nice.
Hands down, one of my favourite Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed in!
It was rustic, unique, cosy and authentically handcrafted by Italians.
It had plenty of hiking trails right outside the door, we had friendly neighbours (particularly the furry ones) and every morning, we woke up to the most spectacular views!
Did someone say snow day?! I experienced my first ever official snow day over here in Victoria today and couldn’t be happier about it!
Agust told me that if you wear your pyjamas inside out the night before, it’s almost a guarantee!
So to celebrate, we built a snowman, had a snow ball fight, I made a snow angel, I stomped through all of the deepest snow I could find, we went on lots of walks around our neighbourhood, soaking up the magical atmosphere and enjoyed the crunchy sounds beneath our feet.
I know it’s early days, but this might just be one of my favourite days of the year so far.
I LOVE YOU, SNOW! ❆
