Travel & Adventure
Don’t let the smiling photos on this page fool you.
Those were good times, no doubt. But there were so many others when I fell flat on my face…or worse. Life is the most Amazing Journey you will ever take, but it takes great self-awareness to realize that you are enough.
Did you read that?
You Are Enough!
This doesn’t mean that every little thing from now on is going to be easy-peasy. Oh, I wish! I’m grateful (over-the-moon with ecstatic joy) if 50% falls into place. The point is that nothing is guaranteed…ever. Forgive the cliché, but our gift is the present. This moment right here: this flash of an eyelash; this fraction of a heartbeat…this is all we are guaranteed.
The photos you see are some moments in time where things were pretty stinkin’ awesome and someone caught them as images. (And since there is a song in everything, I acknowledge Green Day: “So take the photographs and still frames in your mind, hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.”) These are the images plucked from the millions upon millions of moments in a perfectly flawed life.
I invite you to join this Journey into the highs and lows of a fellow traveller of Earth. I’m not here to tell you how to live, what you should or shouldn’t do, I want to share the missteps as well as the joys of a life well-lived, nonetheless still in progress. Maybe something resonates with you in lesson form, or maybe you roll in hysterical laughter from the pickle I got myself in "that one time". Whatever the case, my wish is that you can take some tid-bit of wisdom from my mistakes and/or successes and run with them.
Go above. Go beyond! I’m rooting for you!
