I remember when I moved to AZ, someone said "you'll learn to appreciate the storms." I laughed at the thought that I would ever appreciate the storms, I mean I was chasing the sun. I would get so pissed on days that it would rain - I did not sign up for this. 
I've found quite the metaphor for my life in this recently - as I often do when I allow my relationship with nature to be a reflection of my mental state. I used to run from anything remotely uncomfortable - that is how I ended up in AZ - I wanted everything to be sunshine - not even rainbows because they came with rain after all ;-) The crazy irony is the parallel that while I'm still not completely settled with the uncomfortable -yet - I sure do challenge my tolerance and I have learned to appreciate it's role in my journey. 
I also now have quite the appreciation of AZ storms and even found myself mindlessly driving out to soak one in. 
I wonder if that person knew what they were speaking into my life that day. #createfor28 #miraclesofnature #naturemetaphors #naturesmirror #instagramaz #igsouthwest #haz #arizonahiking #igersphx #exploreeverywhere #neverstopexploring #getoutdoors #optoutside #randoventure #livetoday #rei1440project #outdoorwomen #adventureculture  #wildernessculture #dirtbarbieadventures #departedoutdoors  #exploremore #discoverearth #expandyourplayground #mountaingirls #livewhereyoulive #neverstopexploring #arizonahighways #likeamountaingirl #traveladdict
