What's on your bucket list?
And what's stopping you from just doing it???
This is a question I try to ask myself every year or so. And I usually find that the only thing stopping me is me...me and my mind set.
I've chiseled away at a few of the things: I went skydiving, I learned to SCUBA (which was actually my biggest fear,) I learned to handstand...kinda, and became a professional helicopter pilot.
But I still haven't run a marathon or written a book. What's stopping me???
Well me, of course.
I'm working my way that direction though!
One of these days....
But when does one of these days become today? 🤔🤔🤔

Antarctica's fastest-accelerating glaciers in 2008-2014 likely caused by wind and warm water blown into the bay where they’re located. The water was only 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit (0.5 to 1 degree Celsius) warmer than usual water temperatures in the area, but it increased the glaciers' flow speeds by up to 25 percent and multiplied the rate of glacial ice loss by three to five times -- from 7 to 10 feet of thinning per year (2 to 3 meters) up to 33 feet per year (10 meters). Researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, found that the warmer water was driven into the area by winds associated with two global climate patterns: La Niña and the less-known Southern Annular Mode, which involves a change in location of the belt of winds that encircles Antarctica. The glaciers' acceleration lasted from mid-2008 to 2012. After that, they slowed down but have continued to flow faster than they did before the warm water arrived.

Pick up your dropped jaw again, because this beautiful gem really does exist!
Located at an altitude of 2130m in the @aletscharena_ch, the #Belalp is the place where you can stand at a prime spot and be amazed of the stunning views of the famous #Aletsch#Glacier – the largest glacier in Europe. Back in time, people reached the Belalp on the back of a donkey… but these times have long passed. Nowadays you can enjoy a short ride by cable car from #Blatten. If you are looking for a challenge, simply follow the strenuous mountain hike to the #Oberaletsch hut or the 124 meter-long hanging bridge which leads to the Aletsch forest. Thank you for sharing this great shot @lilyrose!
Jokulsarlson - (Glacier Lagoon) is our favourite place in Iceland. It's different every time you go, beautiful no matter what the weather is like and accessible to everyone! We can spend hours here just watching the ice, waiting for them to roll over, looking for seals and taking in all the amazing beauty of mother nature. .
