Well, now, that I got your attention…..
Every morning I wake up, let the dogs outside and pour myself a cup of coffee. This is my time to catch up on emails, read all the nonsense and scandal on my neighborhood social network and plot a murder. Well, not really. I’m not that crazy, but I have to admit, subconsciously I am disgusted with people lately. As I scroll through the posts and comments of my neighborhood feed, I realize that those are the same people who care more about their own image yet, show their true reflection from behind computer screen. Today, was one of those mornings where my blood reached a boiling point. I need to change my morning routine. It’s bad for me and may be bad for the people in my path. Maybe I need to change to decaf. Nah. That is a crazy idea.
I recently acquired and read this awesome book that makes me realize I am not the only one out there with the same thought pattern. I believe everyone should read it. Why?
Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
Much needed mind reset.
It was time to decompress and get away from humans. And so we ended up in the desert again. No one in sight. Just wind, animals and us.
Since I wander off the marked trails lately, I brought my “Just in case” equipment with me.
I find that little guy pretty nifty and who doesn’t want a whistle, thermometer and compass all in one?
It was very nice, cool and slightly windy morning. Sun came out just in time to warm us up. This is a perfect place to recharge, reset your mind and reflect on everything that we want to leave behind and focus on the only positive.
