LIVE WITH INTENTION... WALK TO THE EDGE
If you are reading this, then we have one thing in common: we live for those days where we feel we are in our element on skis, bike or foot. Where things flow seamlessly, the conditions are ripe, and we share this with people who matter most in our lives. We remember these days fondly, and seek out more opportunities to experience this feeling.
"Great Days are what reinvigorate our passion for life outside walls." - Smith Optics
Every year I set out on a more than ambitious schedule, to travel, explore, race and teach. I could tell you what I am doing every weekend (and weekday for that matter) from now until October 1. It becomes a puzzle putting all the pieces together, and sometimes I get so caught up in the business and planning aspects, it is easy to become too concentrated on logistics and less on living it.
And then I stop.
And think about Why I am here. When I started navigating this fairly unconventional career path based more on passion than anything else. Where I have been. Who has been my influencers, motivators and inspiration along the way. And What is its purpose?
Taking time to stop and re-evaluate what you are doing: your day-to-day life, your habits, your behaviors, what motivates you, what encourages you, what drives you, is essential to a conscious life. It is far too easy to get caught up in the busywork of daily life, and forget how we got started on this path in the first place. Take a moment and look at the BIG picture. What are your goals? 10 years ago, who did you want to become? What did you want to be doing? Are you doing that now? If not, what do you want to be doing? What is it going to take to get there? What is holding you back?
