“Edmond: Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine!

🐾 πŸƒ “I walk chiefly to visit natural objects, but I sometimes go on foot to visit myself. It often happens when I am on an outward-bound excursion, that I also discover a good deal of my own thought. He is a poor reporter, indeed, who does not note his thought as well as his sight. The profit of a walk depends on your waiting for the golden opportunity — on your getting an inspired hint before setting out… These members [legs] when in motion, are so stimulating to thought and mind, they almost deserve to be called the reflective organs. As in the night an iron-shod horse stumbling along a stony road kicks out sparks, so let a man take to his legs and soon his brain will begin to grow luminous and sparkle.” –Alfred Barron, Foot Notes, Or, Walking as a Fine Art, 1875 • • • • • • • #expandyourplayground #outdoorlife #outdoors #outdooradventures #runningman #running #goodforyourhealth #goodforyoursoul #exercise #fitness #theworldisyourplayground #mthood #oregon #onrunningshoes #oew #operationenduringwarrior #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #pnw #dirteater #mudlover #takecareofyourself #takecareofyourbody #teamadhd #adhdadventures #jamesarcieri #underconstruction #workinprogress #weekendwarrior #reflection

“It’s hard to be brought down when you have a balloon 🎈” - Winnie the Pooh. ___________________________________ In every job that must be done there is an element of fun πŸ˜‰ I love working at Microsoft’s HQ Campus because there is always something going on to celebrate! It’s a great reminder to just reflect and appreciate what you have and/or what you’ve been allowed to experience in life. Don’t forget to take time each day to write down something that you are thankful for - makes a huge difference on mental health. • • • • • • • • • • #balloons #balloonsrock #winniethepooh #ohbother #microsoft #worklife #havingfun #enjoyinglife #appreciatethelittlethings #ineveryjobthatmustbedonethereisanelementoffun #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #pinkshirt #summer #summerdays #working #lovemyjob #liveauthentic #enjoylife #fitbit #grateful #chooselove #bekindpleaserewind #bekind #workingman #washingtonstate #redmond
πŸŽ₯ Cameraman: “We have donuts 🍩” Me: “Get me over this wall” 🚨 Real Talk 🚨 They say the face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart — Saint Jerome _______________________________________ And mine is one of gratitude and joviality.  _______________________________________ “Why, you ask?” Well, late last year I had to deal with being unemployed and being given this new life now at Microsoft has reminded me how fortunate I am to have a job. Not to take it for granted, especially one that allows me the means to take care of my family, friends and strangers. It’s allowed me the opportunity to work with groups like @weareoscarmike #oscarmike #oew #operationenduringwarrior and support my friends’ goals. But besides the job, while during that time of unemployment it also taught me to appreciate the little things even more. That is why this year has ignited in me the spirit of giving. Giving my time, energy, knowledge and other resources to help others achieve their goals.  _______________________________________ I simply ask that you consider doing the same. You’ll feel better mentally, physically and spiritually. • • • • • • • #toughmudder #ocr #obstaclecourseracing #outdoorlife #outdoorfun #outdoors #expandyourplayground #mentalhealth #giveback #givingback #mentalhealthawareness #exercise #fitbit #fitness #fitnessfun #underconstruction #bestself #italian #camelback #mud #wall #beactive #summer #summerdays #topless #menwholift #teamadhd

#repost @behindtheshield911 Bring back honor. πŸ’ͺβœŠοΈπŸ™ ・・・ By far the most powerful 60 Seconds I've ever seen. Major Dick Winters talking about heroism. He led his men through the D-Day invasion and then almost every major battle to follow.  He lost so many brothers in these conflicts. You can see the war haunts him almost 60 years later. As with most soldiers he does not see himself as a hero, but sees heroism in his brothers. This is the epitome of a man and a leader. In memory of everyone who served in World War II. We salute you.  #dday #bandofbrothers #easycompany #101stairborne #army #war #worldwartwo #hero #inspiration #bravery #courageous #courage #honor #thankyouforyourservice #realmen
Today is the 74th anniversary of D-Day.

Video footage from the 50k this past weekend. Very tough and very hot day(85 degrees) with a total elevation gain of 7,000 feet! ————————————— Had lots of fun running with the weighted vest 😜 πŸ˜“ and making new friends! Was awesome running it for raising awareness around suicide prevention (veteran and civilian). ——————————————————— For those thinking, “James, isn’t the distance hard enough, why a vest?” Well, I’m running it to simulate just a brief example of what extra weight can feel like, such as: negative thoughts that lead to depression and an endless cycle of self-hate. ————————————— It was funny, ppl kept saying, “James why not just take it off if it’s slowing you down?” To which I replied, you’re right, it would be easier, but what about those that sacrificed and can’t just take it off. They have to live with disabilities that can get them down and can’t just take it off; however, there is a positive note that with help the burden can get easier, it may never go away, but it can get easier with the help from others. • • • • #outdoors #running #trailrunning #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #veteransuicideawareness #veterans #livewithapurpose #actwithapurpose #whatsyourpurpose #salomon #fitbit #justdoit #digdeep #yourenotalone #teamadhd #breakthestigma #pnw #wenatchee #washingtonstate #cashmere #50k #weekendwarrior #dailyprogress #underconstruction #bestself #spreadlove #showcompassion
🚨 Red Devil πŸ‘ΉChallenge Trail 50k Run Ready! 🚨 • I’m running (with a weighted vest, too) and dedicating this race to an issue that is very close to my heart ❀️: 1. Mental 🧠 Health Awareness  2. Veteran Suicide Prevention • This particular race though is in remembrance of Chester Bennington aka @linkinpark former lead singer. A light that was taken way too soon from us and the unfortunate irony is that their song “Heavy” after the fact reveals what was going on in his head and heart right before he decided to make that permanent decision. • Therefore, let’s all pledge to be more present to those around us. Let’s put our phone downs and actually have real meaningful conversations where we feel listened to and reminded that we are not alone. • I pledge to be more positively responsive and proactive with those I encounter in my life. Will you commit to that? • If you feel alone, don’t hesitate to reach out. If you feel overwhelmed, please reach out. We were not designed to go through life alone and you are not alone.  If you’re a veteran struggling and feeling alone, then please check out the app @objectivezeroapp “Who cares if one more light goes out, I Do” - LP.

Flowers 🌺 from the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem. • • • What I love about flowers is that in order to grow they require removing weeds from their environment or else it will constrict their growth and even destroy them. • • How true is that analogy with regards to allowing negativity to take root - see what I did there πŸ˜‰- in our lives? We need to evaluate what’s causing negativity in our lives and make the decision can this be fixed or does it need to be ripped out? It will require getting our hands dirty, may even cause scratches/pain, but in the end it will be cathartic and allow for growth! • • So, “Let’s get down to business” - Mulan. #jerusalem #flowers #gethsemane #flowerstagram #flowerpower #garden #gardening #inspiration #inspirationfromnature #naturalideas #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #adhd #outdoors #nature #naturephotography #wisdomwednesday #gettinghandsdirty #pain #growth #underconstruction #workinprogress #dailyprogress #justdoit #makethechange #whatareyouwaitingfor #teamadhd #realtalk #disney #mulan
While at the gun range it made me take a step back and think how our soldiers have to deal with this intensity x 100. It really makes you appreciate and gives you a small glimpse into what they have to go through. They don’t really have ear protection, they don’t always have eye glass protection and obviously they are more exposed in combat. I am truly grateful to God for my life, for the Stars and Stripes, and our men and women who sacrificed their lives and are still serving.  #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #thankyouforyourservice #humbled
Can we talk about how much of a stud my Grandfather was!  1st Lieutenant USMC Michael Arcieri. Korean War. "So to the indifferent inquirer who asks why Memorial Day is still kept up we may answer, it celebrates and solemnly reaffirms from year to year a national act of enthusiasm and faith. It embodies in the most impressive form our belief that to act with enthusiasm and faith is the condition of acting greatly. To fight out a war, you must believe something and want something with all your might. So must you do to carry anything else to an end worth reaching. More than that, you must be willing to commit yourself to a course, perhaps a long and hard one, without being able to foresee exactly where you will come out. All that is required of you is that you should go somewhither as hard as ever you can. The rest belongs to fate. One may fall-at the beginning of the charge or at the top of the earthworks; but in no other way can he reach the rewards of victory.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes  #memorial #memorialdayweekend #neverforget #veterans #thankyouforyourservice #thankyouforyoursacrifice #landofthefree #landofthefreebecauseofthebrave #freedomisntfree #disneyworld #waspossiblebecauseofthem #saturday #may
🚨 Real Talk Post 🚨  Practice Forgiveness - even if it’s just forgiving that person who cut you off during your commute. People who forgive have better mental health and report being more satisfied with their lives. The Greatest definition of FORGIVENESS I’ve heard is letting another person off the hook so that you can go free. • Focusing too much on the one who hurt or disappointed us can distract us from our own efforts to change and grow. Besides, God tells us that we are to fully meditate upon His massive and magnificent act of forgiveness so that we will have the grace to forgive others (see Matthew 18:21-35). • The most that can change in one hour is an attitude or a mindset. If you go home and make a true effort to change, that attitude and mindset will be tested and challenged, and you may want to give up after a few hours. Genuine growth always happens over time, and the effort requires perseverance especially when the path gets bumpy and rough. • Think of airplanes and bad weather. Small aircraft have to watch out for bumpy and rough weather. When an approaching weather system is intensifying to hurricane status, small aircraft simply do not fly. Rather, they stay on the ground with wings tied down to bolts on the tarmac. The major airlines may continue to fly the bigger jets, but they change their flight paths and cancel certain flights to avoid the worst weather. • The US National Weather Service, on the other hand, does something quite different. Brave men and women from the United States Air Force climb into a C-130 Hercules, strap themselves in and fly right into the heart of the storm. They have to be in the middle of the squall before they can gather information and find out certain things the storm. “How big are you?” “Where are you going?” “How fast are you spinning?” “How agitated are you?". • While many of us are not born hurricane chasers, we have to learn to become them. We have to be willing to fly into the
