This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Have you ever wanted to see something or do something and your mind or your body just didn’t cooperate?
Well, it’s happened to me a few times too. And I used to get down on myself. I used to wonder if I should even try. And the answer is yes. Yes. Always try. I always try.
Yesterday, we drove a long way to get to a trail with a waterfall. We recognized it when we got there. And realized we had been there with Digby some years ago.
And at that time, we were worried about him making it up the hill. Now I was worried about me. Time is a funny thing.
So the persons told me not to worry. That it had been a long time since I hiked up hill. That I may have to build my strength up again. And that it was ok. We would turn around any time I wanted to.
I liked being given the option. But I wanted to try. And I did. Until my legs said no way. And so. I reluctantly turned around. I felt a bit defeated at first. But then, it was all down hill and fun and we laughed and it didn’t feel like a failure at all.
Then, at the end, there was a creek. And I have to say, to me, that was just as beautiful as a waterfall. And a blessing all it’s own.
In life, even if you turn around, and you tried, that’s more than ok. You are allowed to go a different way. You are allowed to try again if you want to. Or enjoy where you are.
We have lots of videos and more coming to you this week from our adventures. Stay tuned!
