I came across a fantastic blog the other day – fantastic mainly because the photos capture the stark beauty of high peaks and the posts remind me of the importance to dream – dream of the journey. We hear it all the time, ‘life is a journey’ but far too often we focus and get sucked into either an end goal or a task that we forget to enjoy this grand experience filled with love, fun, hardship, tears, and everything else. I catch myself every so often getting caught up in the task that I forget to smile and enjoy.
Prime example, I was biking home this morning (on nights again…blah) and five minutes in, rain. There was a 20% chance of rain, so I was totally unprepared. At first I started to just bike faster, hoping to make it out before I was soaked, then it turned into a downpour – so I was soaked no matter what. As I kept peddling a little annoyed by the rain worrying if my stuff was getting wet, something clicked in my head. “This is awesome.” and then I smiled and enjoyed my soaked ride home. Why is this awesome? Its raining on a nice spring day and I get to play in the rain for my commute. I don’t have to worry about another driver doing something crazy, I get to, sorta, jump in puddles with awesome galoshes.
It just clicked and although it was nice to get dry back inside, I was happy that I was soaked riding through the rain. (it was also nice because there were no pedestrians out 🙂 )
Hope you enjoy this site – if for no other reason than the photographs.
Stay safe, happy trails.
