Pain forces even the innocent to lie.

This Is Just For Me

Leaning into discomfort is the only way

TED Talk
Last night’s TED Talk lesson.

Leaning into discomfort is the only way.

The only way to what?

The only way to a meaningful life.

The subtly painful truth about growth

Many Glacier Horseback riding
Obligatory photo. From Rising Sun Motor Inn, head East and you’ll you leave Glacier and can drive North a few miles before re-entering Glacier.

This was a first for the teen, and a second for me.

For posterity.

 

Many Glacier Horseback riding
Yee-haw!

 

Overcoming is the path to growth.

Little did i know yesterday morning that the day would end with a major personal achievement – overcoming a severe fear. And it had nothing to do with horses.

.

Note to myself for posterity: 08.02 Tuesday breakfast at Many Glacier, Cracker Flats two-hour horseback ride, lunch at Swiftcurrent, relax at Rising Sun, dinner at Logan Pass, Cheryl was not up to hiking Hidden Lake Trail so Chapin and i did the High Line trail entrance. The Highline Trail has always frightened me.

Honey, It's For You

The harsh reality of death and a busy world

Morning clouds off Sanibel Island

 

(photo: Sunrise on the morning after Cooper’s departure)

The harsh reality of death and a busy world.

Bad things happen in two major catatogies:

  1. Expected
  2. Unexpected

We expect very old people to die.

We do not expect very young people to die.

While death is difficult, it is especially difficult when it’s unexpected.

We all know this.

The best defense, and perhaps the only defense, is to live like you mean it.

To not waste a single day.

Not one.

We know this.

But do we actually do it?
