I awake on day 2 in paradise. God has so richly blessed me. I feel invigorated, inspired and capable of climbing the tallest mountain and chasing the biggest dream. I mean, haven't I done that? I did climb the tallest free standing mountain in the world and I did start doing a talkshow just a couple years ago. Why does time off to clear your mind and reflect make you feel invincible? I think the world beats us down. I think we get caught in circumstances that exhaust us.
I think people hurt us, work coworkers sometimes make situations more difficult than they need to be--- and the air slowly drains out of our balloons. We lose steam. We lose heart. We get discouraged and downtrodden. Vacation gives us a chance to breathe. I remember even as a single mom- I would still take time out to escape. It is actually when I began hiking. With no money and no budget- it was my only option.
Today as I stare at a beautiful ocean and the sun beats down on me- I feel hugged by amazing earth and blessing. Go find your adventure. Go capture your spirit.
