Life After Trail - day 19 (13th Dec)
‘Channeling My Sherona’s courage’.
I’ve always avoided writing anything political on my social media as I worry what readers, including family members, with different political leanings would think. I’ve worried it will affect my business. I’ve worried that I’ll look stupid when I can’t argue back with people more articulate and confident than me.
This morning as I read all the depressing post election commentary I seek out thoughtful words from wise people I trust. I want to share their thoughts (and my own) on my personal Facebook page but my doubts make me pause. Yet I remembered what I wrote in my ‘post trail diary’ yesterday about how I can learn from my Trail Self. My PCT trail name was ‘My Sherona’ and I shared that I could learn a bit from her courage.
I checked I wasn’t writing for my own ego and then I channelled My Sherona by choosing action over safety. Below is what I shared.
I missed much of the pre election ugliness whilst on trail. Last night I watched in shock as the results came in. To be honest more long distance hiking feels very tempting this morning.
But I wanted to share some words from two thoughtful friends that lifted my heart on this heavy morning:
“Nothing this morning challenges my beliefs and values, a majority voice within a democracy doesn't make it right.
And I also believe that 'the moral arc of the universe is long and it bends towards justice'.
I’m not going to measure the rightness of the result on the strength of the pound, I want to know what it means to those with the least and the lowest, and only time will tell us that.” (Dave Steell)
“Things are going to be very hard and will get even tougher.
So it is up to us to create the kind of society we want to live in. We can do this regardless of and despite who holds political power. Those people come and go.” (Jill Rowe)
Like most of my English, N. Irish and Welsh friends - Scotland didn’t vote for this.
SNP won 48 out of 59 seats. Interesting times north of the border. But sending love and care to my dear friends south of it.
Deep down you already know it.
Resisting it only maintains your suffering.
The truth is simply the truth.
It's human to make excuses or wanting to deny the truth.
Fortunately the truth will always come out.
You better be ready for it.

Often others who have been thru trauma and haven’t processed their own, don’t want to hear yours. It’s because they hear and feel too much of themselves in your story. And maybe they aren’t ready to faces those things in themselves. Maybe they know they didn’t handle it and process it properly. And you become a target for their resentment about their own situation.
I hear people water down their trauma to make others more comfortable. “Well we just don’t talk about it” helps no one. You can’t make changes unless the full truth comes to light. Or “I don’t want to make them uncomfortable.” I understand trauma especially in our situation where it’s child abuse, isn’t a fabulous topic. It’s not easy. It’s not pretty. And it’s one of those things that usually hidden. And honestly is shouldn’t be. We could protect more children by speaking out. By telling what the signs were. What the outcomes were. And where we can go from here.
Tell your truth, the whole thing. And you will feel pieces of your heart knit back together. You will receive love and support to help you.
Will you receive some backlash? Most likely. But at least the truth is out there.

We attract into our life what we ask for!
🎉We received our official 501(c)(3) status yesterday! This tattoo is an ever present reminder that though our paths don’t always begin the way we think they should, they always end us where we’re supposed to be. Looking forward to linking arms with community partners and being part of the solution in the mental health crisis we are all facing as a society. #ConstantKindnessCanAccomplishMuch #MentalHealthMatters #BeHereTomorrow #BeTheChange #SilenceTheShame #BreakTheStigma #KeepingKayleigh #StayWithMe #StandWithChristina #WellnessWarriors #TellYourTruth #PeopleNeedPeople

Today Harvey Weinstein and his former studio made a $25 million deal with his victims. Weinstein, accused of offenses ranging from sexual harassment to rape, won't have to admit wrongdoing or pay his own money. #nojusticenopeace • 💔💔💔
Life After Trail - day 18 (12th Dec)
‘Shona is My Sherona’.
I’m sitting up, propped against my pillows in what used to be my favourite place - own bed. It’s my first time to wake up here in nearly 6 months. It feels comfortingly familiar yet I also feel a shadow.... It’s 10:30am and over the last week I’ve got into a habit of sleeping in.
On trail I had to get up and get moving early every day. There was no decision to be made, no choice. I had a clear purpose and direction. I’d set my alarm for 7:30 and there’s a tonne of things for me to do....but none feel urgent enough.
The early darkness, the drizzle that’s neither snow nor committed rain and the cold, made my Inverness home coming feel a bit dreary yesterday. Yet the warmth and love of my family felt like home. Dad’s wood burning stove and his thoughtful questions, Mum’s feeding me and her expressions of joy to ‘have me home’, Jo’s tight hug and squeals.
And now it feels strange to be alone in my house yet I also want to be alone.
Friends ask if I miss the Trail. It’s both a ‘yes’ and a ‘I don’t know’. I miss the simplicity, the clarity of purpose, the community, the outdoor living, the physical beauty, the shared kindness. The people. AND I pursued these values in my life here before the Trail. More than ever I’ve a desire to continue to nurture and pursue these values.
I feel like a wild animal who’s taking a few days hibernation... but who’s soon going to be stretching out, shaking off in readiness.
New research on post thru hike depression suggests that it’s about loss of a sense of self in relation to the trail, rather than a loss of the trail. (See https://thetrek.co/post-trail-depression-not-think/)
I believe My Sherona (my trail name) and Shona are the same person. Maybe My Sherona was braver, hardier and more confident but these are all things she’s teaching Shona. She was also less addicted to her smart phone and more present - again I’m learning. For now I’m just going with this gentle grief and not putting conditions on myself as I transition. Today I’ll vote and unpack. It’s enough.
Have been feeling pretty crappy the last couple days, thought I might have strep throat 😬, but went to the doc today and all clear! Just a really pissed off throat. 🤦🏻♀️
With that being said, today was a rest day for me. Rest day means a little extra sleep, more time to get people involved in our upcoming group, and some extra reading time!!! 😍
This book has forced me to do some serious evaluation regarding my life + business, helped get me back to my roots, the core of my WHY and what I am doing and creating in this world. I have kept coming back to this...👇🏼
Be brave enough to always speak your truth, no matter how hard it is. Stand up and speak up for what is not working in your life and business. Be able to dig deep when you need to walk away from things that no longer fit and dare to rumble with vulnerability. ❤️❤️
I’ll I have to say is thank goodness for personal development and Brené Brown. 🙌🏼

@nicpoolmusic and Pilot’s very first walk to the dog park together. They had instant obsession with one another. Pilot climbed the table and stayed right on Nick’s lap for the next 7 years ❤️ swoon. .

Sharing your story is the most powerful thing you could do.
Be brave and be yourself.
Confession: Book signing events are actually really scary for me sometimes. I absolutely love meeting people and I especially love meeting people from our community, but I also have this super deep insecurity about letting people down.
I can remember doing an interview with someone a couple of years ago and while sitting across from them over coffee, a curious smile suddenly spread across their face... “You’re much more soft spoken than I thought you would be,” she said. “Really?” I asked “What were you expecting?” “I’m not sure” she replied “but there’s a quietness about you that I wasn’t anticipating. You seem feistier online.” And maybe 'disappointed' isn't the word she would have chosen, but there was definitely a gap between who she thought I was and who I actually was.
Falling short of someone's expectations in any capacity is an insecurity that I’ve struggled with for a very long time. I've improved drastically over the years, but then the internet happened and made that insecurity a hundred times worse!
Because people come here and they see my words and they read my stories and they feel my life.
And then they fill in the blanks.
They take all of those empty spaces and paint a picture of who I am in between.
Sometimes it's this super social girl who says all the right things at all the right times. Sometimes it's a girl who walks into a room and immediately fits in no matter where she is. Sometimes it's a girl who turns everything she touches into gold. And often times, it's a girl who becomes the best friend we all wish we had.
So, when people meet me in person and realize I’m not any of those things…a subtle shift in their facial expression occurs.
And that's when I realize that it's happened. That who they believed me to be “on paper” hasn't matched up with who I actually am in person. And it's a strange experience to witness. (continued below...)
