Nothing good is easy

Part one of ?   My wife and I had enough and said, let's just do! We become adventurous for a few weeks. First on our agenda was Glacier National Park. We had seen pictures and heard the stories so we were easily committed to hike GNP for 4 days. The drive there was seemingly unimpressive. Long stretches of highway and little traffic, through high dessert and endless prairie. Ughhhh. Little did we know there was a much more scenic route and we found it for the way home…woohoo! The drive seemed to take for ever. However, as we made the westerly turn we began to see the east slope of the front range begin to emerge and continue to grow. Now we were getting excited. So much so that with every wrong turn I made (cause I don’t need maps!) my wife grew more and more violent towards me as she felt she was missing precious time exploring! She expressed in the tones and language of any good sailor that she will handle all directions to anyplace on the planet from here forward. I guess I see her point. But I digress…

We finally made it to the KOA and after some sheer brilliance and MacGyver like engineering on my part the 5th wheel was all level and all systems were functioning. Just in time for dinner, a glass of wine (from a box!) and some planning for the next day and off to sleep we went.

Here’s where it gets good. Over the next 3 days we logged 30+ miles of hiking. We saw stunning scenery and were moved beyond words with every minute of every experience. My future blog posts will touch on this. Here's my concern. I read Facebook daily and stare at photo’s from others. I read posts, watch some of the video’s etc.  I mostly do this over morning coffee from 4:30 a.m. -5:30 a.m. I do my share of post processing and picture posting as well. After all it’s what I’d really like to do to support my family.  I get many comments stating that I “have the life” or that “They wished they could” even "I'd love to go there or do that." Within this time on Facebook I get a feel for many of my “friends” and their lives. Much of their emotion and “self” is evident. I feel for many as seemingly more and more of them are OK with complaining and feeling sorry for themselves. Why, why is it that too many are too OK with this? Why have too many lost the drive or desire to do something epic or even just something to make them happy?  I’ve got some news for them. Nothing good is ever easy. Don't wait until the time is right or you have enough money. Because it will never happen. One of the hardest thing you'll ever do for yourself is move out of your comfort zone and do something new or different. Common.... Change things and let your life experience happen!
