Enjoying the journey & moving forward

I think of the first time I climbed a 14’er (a mountain over 14,000′).  From the base of the mountain, the task looks impossible.  I could believe at that moment that I can't do it, and justify this with all kinds of evidence from past experiences and beliefs.  Then, I don’t even bother to try.

To Wander, or not to Wander…

…that is the question.  Do I stay on the defined path, focused in on where this path takes me, or do I go off trail, open to exploring the unknown, no real destination in mind, to find something surprising and new? It’s not a bad thing to stay on a direct path.  Sometimes it’s better [...]
