Take a Hike

I learned everything I need to know about life on my hike today. Well, maybe not everything but it did offer up some helpful reminders. Here’s my take on life as it relates to the trail:

  • Be sure-footed and know where you’re going.
  • Be flexible, knowing you’re terrain may change.
  • Pace yourself.
  • Clawing your way to the top can leave scars.
  • Preparation peaks performance.
  • You can go your own way.
  • Look up.
  • Fresh air focuses the mind.
  • Nature makes us feel both big and small, there’s beauty in both.
  • Hard work offers rewards.
  • Recognize when to soar and when to coast.
  • Connecting to nature cures.
  • Keep moving. Nothing good grows in stagnation.
  • Silence brings answers.
  • Focusing only on the top, robs us of the present path.
  • Take time to take in the view.
  • Breathe.
  • Recognize what’s there for you when you’re on the way down.
  • The human body is the most valuable machine we will ever own, we must treat it as such.
  • Ain’t no mountain high enough!
