Gotta say it – I have led a charmed life.
It hasn’t been easy by any means. In fact challenging, hard, scary, and tiring come to mind first. Then recollection of challenges bring up much headache, heart break, and disappointments.
Yet the rewards have been incredible adventures, epic journeys, and intense connections with amazing people. I have done many things that others dream about, some things that others have nightmares about, seen sunsets in places people just don’t go, followed by sunrises that were even further away. For these things, I am proud.
All this has made me who I am. Every step has had risks. I have always calculated the risks, assessed the situation, and made a decisive move. I have never looked back nor questioned my commitment.
Confidently – I can say I have earned each and every experience by taking risks that others were not willing to take and doing things other people would not do.
Somewhere along the way… blazing the trail became easier – the trail turned into a path.
I am now at a fork in the road. I can see a hint of a trail on my right and a path on a bumpy road filled with pot holes ahead of me on the left.
A solo journey to the Yucatan provided time for deliberations and deep thoughts over many a cold Pacifico. I thought I had it figured, but yet now upon my return to the states, it does not seem as clear.
My steps are nearing me to the decision on which way to go….
Do I blaze a new trail or follow the path?
