Sleeping Under The Stars

Have you ever passed up on an opportunity or adventure because you felt like your folks didn’t do things like that? In other words, have you deemed something, anything, as “White People Shit?” If you know the Color Outside story, you know one of the first meetups I had was on a hike where we […]

Are You Talking Yourself Out Of Joy?

Have you ever consciously made the decision to not get too happy, too comfortable, too “fill-in-the-blank” simply because IF something happened you didn’t want to be disappointed?

More of THIS, please

“The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.” Between our recent Pop of Color Ski Weekend (it was MAGICAL) and the announcement of my partnership with Eddie Bauer as an All Outside Program Leader I’ve been feeling really… FULL.And GRATEFUL.And HAPPY. Being able to use my […]

Curious Flow

“If you can let go of passion and follow your curiosity, your curiosity just might lead you to your passion.”– Elizabeth Gilbert My theme for 2020 is “curious flow” which means that I want to take more time walking my talk where it comes to living an unapologetically joy-filled life. It means doing less of […]

What is your biggest hurdle when it comes to living a more joy-filled, adventurous life? If that question looks familiar, it’s probably because you answered it when joining the Color Outside Facebook Group. I asked this question purposefully, not simply to be nosy, but in an effort to help you get clarity on what’s holding you back. […]
