I’m a type-A kind of human (an ENTJ and Enneagram type 8 if that means anything to you), which comes as no surprise to anyone who’s spent time with me. Couple my natural tendencies with the remnants of traumatic experiences I’ve survived and you get an intense need for control that doesn’t lend itself to sinking gracefully into the unknown. But I’ve been trying to cultivate a sense of patience and ease with the unpredictability of life and there’s been no better teacher on that journey than the mountains. It doesn’t matter how meticulously I prepare, the mountains shut down the best laid of plans, seemingly without rhyme or reason. I’ve had to learn that that’s okay. As glorious as it is to stand on the summit, there’s so much magic in the in-between. A shared snack on the trail. A spontaneous dance party that has music and laughter flowing through your body. The taste of wild blueberries on your tongue. An explosion of stars across the sky as a crescent moon rises. These are things that are easily overlooked in the mad quest for the summit and I want to revel in every single one. What about you?

every2pines I am an e-type 9 but I relate difficulties around the mountains shutting down my plans so much. I turn into a petulant toddler when it doesn't go my way and am actively working to embrace what I have got instead of what I imagined. And of course, I consider the trips that didn't go as planned as the most memorable. Love your little list at the end of things to focus on instead.

her.oregon.life Watching the sun set while the colors change and the nighttime animals start to make noise (frogs are my favorite) is something my soul needed last night. My favorite time of day no matter where I am 💕

sarina_clark I’m also a big planner. The mountains have a way of teaching us to slow down and release control of what we thought we had planned and going with the flow more.

noel_russ I love this perspective so much. Time spent outside is humbling and grounding in the very best ways. I also love your type A-ness and your type 8 tendencies 💛💛💛💛

seattlebred So true! I find I oscillate wildly between both. Either hell bent on the summit and ignoring signs to stop, or I give up a little too easily and chill 😂 I always thought it was weird but apparently this is very normal for Enneagram type 6 🤷🏻‍♀️

erin.inspired I agree with this so much! They are the best teachers!!

endlessdistances I’m an INTJ ❤️✨

jess.wandering It’s true. There’s no controlling Mother Nature.

paulinadao I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on the summits and the end goal, also to get waylaid. I always try to remember that the mountain or rock or whatever will always be there and you can always come back. It’s kinda like what you said about finding beauty in the process and the journey, instead of the final chapter.

kailawalton I’m an INTJ and I am cool with planing things but I’m also down with winging shit sometimes too.

outofthewoods Wow that light!!!

katcarney I’m an ENFJ, now I know why I like you so much 😋. Also, this photo is the prettiest

mitchpittman What a mountain...

carlymy Gorgeous photo! Sometimes the best adventures in life are unplanned 😊

brianejjensen You climbing?

drawntohighplaces I’m also type 8. For me, I don’t need to be in control, in fact my favorite moments are often chaos. I also love those mountain mountains you describe. But if anyone tries to control me, beware. I’m trying to get better at recognizing that in myself😂

nicoleoffduty Fellow entj!! So few of us ❤️
