Right? Well this is what I like to believe anyways. Today, I was supposed to have been running a marathon. In Hawaii. Sun kissed in my bikini, paddle boarding into the sunset. Well…. shit happens. Bless in the mess I guess you could say.
Instead of lying on the beach for a week, recovering from a torturous 42km, I’m heading into the wilderness. For a whole week. Hugging trees and starting IV’s. Mandy and I are headed to Lake Diablo, Washington, to take a remote wilderness medicine course. I’m tickled pink with excitement. It’s funny how when plans fall through, we often stare so hard at the closed door we fail to recognize the endless amount of open doors ready for us to leap through. And if there doesn’t seem to be any other open doors available? Build one. It’s as simple as that. The opportunities are endless…
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door” – Milton Berle
So here’s to building new doors. Creating new adventures. Meeting new people.
Smile with your heart
(I will try to blog throughout the week, although I’m not sure if we even have internet access. Either way, I know I will have some inspiring stories to share when I’m back) :)
