I have always been attracted to nature, and have used to ground me throughout my life. Be it the woods, water, mucking in a stream, ocean, backpacking, later paddling, you name it, I did it. So when we literally got all of our winter in one weekend in the northeast I busted out my snowshoes and communed with nature to settle my ADD mind. It doesn’t matter how long I’m out in nature, my mind calms and I’m able to focus.
I am currently building my future freedom every day, and sometimes that means short-term sacrifices for long-term, sustainable freedom. It feels indescribably good to finally know where I’m going in life, and what I am going to do with it. I’ll get to volunteer and give more than I do now, and I’m changing lives in the process. Most importantly, my own.
I love what I’m able to do with my life now that I never thought possible, and I’m in love with the fact that I will be able to choose to work very soon because I like it not because I have to.
This is kind of a rambling entry, and I use writing to process things. So, I apologize if this didn’t make sense, but I needed to write this today because of the various levels of emotions I am feeling today. Writing and nature are two of my favorite outlets, and that’s what makes this blog so fun.
