. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. -Nelson Mandela . . I saw this quote somewhere recently & it spoke to where I am currently trying to live. #nofear #steponthecockroach

...Seasons of change. . . Change is inevitable when you look past your past 🌱 . . The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself. C. JoyBell C.

We certainly prevailed against the multiple strong sand storm like winds while high up in the dunes... Hiking put to a halt multiple times to refuel and to catch our breath..😊 #TheStruggleWasOhSoReal Thank You Lord for the perfect weather! The light rain and a lil sunshine allowed us to traverse the awesome sand dunes in barefoot! (and we hardly sweat). [Sand could get extremely hot and wearing of shoes was strictly advised.] "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you." (Psalm 139: 17-18) ❤ #Colorado #GreatSandDunes #SandAndCanyons #instatravel #instago #igtravel #getaway #instago #wanderer #wanderlust #travelphoto #mytravelgram #Latergram #travelphotography   #amazing   #instago #ig_worldclub #worldcaptures #worldplaces   #IgDaily #InstaPic #Beautifulworld #BeautifulEarth #Minnstagramers #LifeOutofScrubs #Gallivanting #touristicPlaces #Instagramers #GetOutdoors

That time we got lost and it was my fault. Maybe we should have turned left...Whoopsie! Somewhere 20 miles out of our way on the #AppalachianTrail north east-ish of #bentonmackayetrail Obviously I can't tell north from south on a trail. Good times and thankful for the freeze dried ice cream.

This year for me has been about overcoming what has held me back. I worked through & acknowledged some procrastination during lenten season. I began handling my fear of water. I've dipped my toe into unraveling my fear of heights. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Tim 1:7 What's on your list to overcome? You can defeat fear & learn to maneuver around it's disabling ways. Thanks to my friend Joan for capturing this moment as it encompasses what is brewing in my soul.

Back at it again! Traded my scrubs in for a suit for #InterviewSeason 👩🏼‍⚕️ This all feels very familiar as just 3 short years ago I was interviewing for Pediatrics residency! Currently, I am interviewing for Neonatology fellowship. The interview days compared to residency interview days are overall a little shorter, but jammed full! So far, I have had between 5-7 short interviews with faculty at each program (compared with residency where I usually had 2-3 interviews). I’ve really enjoyed it because I have been able to meet a lot of different people with various scholarly interests, so I am able to really get a feel for the program. Since this time around there is no couples match for me, I am going on much fewer interviews which will be nice 😊 Since it’s coming up on interview season for all the 4th year med students, I thought I would share some of my interview tips: - Always carry on your interview outfit on the plane, do not check it! - Leave plenty of time in the morning to get where you need to be. You don’t need any added stress in the morning and hospitals/campuses can be confusing! - Have some questions prepared for your interviewer. Some will start out the interview with “What questions do you have for me?” Be ready to drive the conversation. - Relax ☺️ Interviews can be fun! It’s about finding a mutual fit, so be yourself! - Keep an open mind and be honest with yourself Good luck to everyone applying for residency/fellowship/jobs! You all worked hard to get where you are, so congratulations 🎉

Today's trail run included a challenging ascent (1,400ft+ in the FIRST mile), at one point it felt more like bouldering! The descent wasn't too crazy but included a segment full of switchbacks. The trail took us on a small tour through its' beauty 💗 #trailrunning #fromwhereirun #elevationrunning #sierranationalforest #instarunner #runningfervor #runnerland #runstrong #runhappy #runlove #love2run #roadtophilly #marathoner #marathontraining #runnergirl #philadelphiamarathontraining #runderful #lifeisgood #outside #lifeoutofscrubs #despiertatumejor #correr #maratonista

Riding a bicycle is the summit of human endeavour - an almost neutral environmental effect coupled with the ability to travel substantial distances without disturbing anybody. The bike is the perfect marriage of technology and human energy. --JC #humanpowered #roadcycling #roadbike #bikeshots #pedalshots #fromwhereiride #cyclinggirl #bici #centralcalifornia #ciclismo #ciclista #ciclismodecarretera #subeteatubici #optoutside #outsideisfree #pedaleando #pedal #bicicleta #lifeisgood #lifeoutofscrubs

#NoMondayBlues 😉 A "perfect" Monday bike riding has almost turned into a nightmare! (not to mention twas my 3rd day of work -fever). I have never imagined myself drenched in the murk-IEST, yuckIEST, MuddIEST lake water ever by my workplace in a beautiful burb surrounded by Lake Minnetonka. but somehow i did.. and so did he.😅 why? the turn-around of events happened when my mobile phone took a dive from where we were sitting by the dock, taking a break from bike-cruising. 2 hours+ have passed (past 11pm)...Uncomfortably, feet still barely touching on NON-solid ground with mud/weeds (and only God knows what else) beneath the pitch- dark lake water.. Saying my desperate prayers out loud or in silent screams...and just when we were about to give up the exhaustive search...my #HandyMan BLINDLY caught my brand new cellphone fr a "borrowed" fishing net covered in thick mud!!! Screen showing LTE on, receiving msgs/VM, notifications fr apps, in short! a FULLY FUNCTIONING #SAMSUNGgalaxy #GalaxyS10 + #WaterResistant -u have surpassed your waterproof capacity!lolz #ThankYouLord for #AnotherMiracle ❤ To the BF... Thank you for diving with me. haha and for not giving up just yet..😂 On to the next SAFER, not-losing-any-valuables type of adventures! sigh* 😘 #HisAndHers 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️ #Instamood #IgDaily #LakeLife #InstaPic #LifeOutOfScrubs #Minnstagramers #GetOutdoors #MinnesotaNice #captureminnesota

"Aaah, summer - that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It's a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends." -DH Ummmm, not free of responsibility but... #nature #californialove #summervibes #summer #verano #sierranationalforest #centralcalifornia #mountainmoments #mountainriver #lifeoutofscrubs #nurselife #nursesgonewild #whitewaterrafting #rafting #tbt #throwbacktuesday #aguasbravas #aguasclaras
