"An Immeasurable What If..."




What if.....
What if it all means we should go. You know, even with all of 'That'...
What if all of those other so important distractions, that daily distress, those preoccupations of people and time pressures, the never ending deadlines, family concerns, others issues, lack of support or sleep, that extra work, or feeling quite tired of it all - what if on another level of understanding and need, what if it all means you should go...
Of course, many of these are real concerns, important in their own way, and needing of some time and attention. But, what if, having all of these kinds of storms in our lives - rather than meaning we shouldn't or seemingly couldn't go, what if they all actually are telling us a different secret...
Even while they are trying us, testing us, to see how much we want these adventures; what if much of what we really need many times is to be found in the avocation of our wanderings out there... What if, by going, we discover more clarity, become centered again, more focused yet relaxed, renewed of energy, and so much more able to return to navigate all those other such things back here.
What if, after pondering this seemingly simple question, we each uncover a heretofore hidden and immeasurably valuable answer for ourselves...
What if.....

What an inspirational post yet again! I lived the 'What if' today and got out there; it sure was my dose of 'mountain therapy' aftr an otherwise more challenging week. I firmly believe that nature allows us to feel centered, regain energy, and just let us be.

Hi B,
I am just back after the same kind of experience. It's great to hear that you have created that kind of inspiration and motivation for yourself. That is exactly what I needed to do also this last week with some coastal winter kayaking... Kindred spirits on kindred adventures...
