Key Moments
“I used to be a whitewater rafter who did first descents with a team of women around the world. We did rivers that hadn't been done before and that kind of thing. I mean, it's cool to be first at things. When I was a firefighter, I wanted to be the first into the fire.”

“There are some [awe] triggers for awe. And one of them is just vastness.”

“Actually, turning your focus away from your self outward has been shown to be much better for your mental health. I'm not taking away from therapy or massages or anything, but it's worth saying that if we need to feel better, focusing outwardly is a valuable component of self-soothing.”
