My summer adventures are in full swing. I have to say, I live for these times when I can get out and explore the beauty in places you would never find unless you were to go off the beaten path. I’ve always been one to take the road less traveled:) I love meeting new people, finding new trails, and just the peacefulness that seems to surround my every day existence.
I just came back from Colorado as I mentioned in my earlier post. I was reacquainted with a friend from high school; it was as if we had never been apart for 30 years. I ventured out to places I hadn’t seen and to some I had been to before.
I was amazed at how I was able to remember every little store, trail, road he and I had been on 4 years ago. I realized that when you love someone that much those special moments are imprinted in your brain. I am glad to have had that time with him and know that I truly did love at least once on my life; good memories to look back on from time to time.
I found my desire to move to Colorado only heightened while I was there. I felt so at peace. I have always visualized myself living there. The pictures on my fridge tell that story. Will I end up there? I don’t know. I’m continually drawn there; I’m not sure why. I see many doors/paths in front of me. I have many options, I’m just not sure which one to take. So I ask God to help me. I think it is pretty amazing that I have options; when just a few years ago I didn’t see any.
I love the hike. I love the smells of the wooded floor; the pine trees as they move with the wind; and the prairie grasses as they ripple like a calm ocean wave. The feeling of being one with nature gives me a natural high that I cannot explain.
The journey I am on now is a good one:) I feel at peace and confident in where I’m going. I am creating new moments to cherish and remember; all by myself:) I know who I am; and that is a huge accomplishment.
On to my next adventure… to be continued
Enjoy the pictures
Keep hiking to the top,
