"I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed.  Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told.  I decided I was safe.  I was strong.  I was brave.  Nothing could vanquish me."  

-Cheryl Strayed, on her fear of hiking 
1100 miles alone on the Pacific Crest Trail.

(from the book I'm currently reading to the left)


  1. That sounds so interesting. 1100 miles ALONE?! My family freaks out if they find out I went out of the state alone haha. This is one cool lady. I admire that.
