Keeping it real

As much as I want to tell you how fabulous my backpacking adventure went this weekend and show tons of pictures, I won’t be.  It had some good moments, but overall it was nothing like I planned.   I don’t even have the desire to go all into the details.  That’s just life sometimes.  It doesn’t always work out as you plan.  It could be it had its own plan and I’m to learn from it.  That’s how I’m digesting it all.  It’s interesting I’ve written just about everything in my life and for some reason  this experience seems to need to be private.  Just between me, nature, and life.  There’s lessons I’m still unwinding I guess.

Peace,

Dwight

  1. I’m sorry it wasn’t as expected. Life has a tendency to do that doesn’t it? Share what you want to and keep the rest private. Sending hugs 🤗 xx

  3. So sorry to hear it didn’t go as planned. Your thoughts on maybe life has its own path and you’re to learn from it is an amazing way to deal. I likely would have thrown a tantrum. 😬 Take Care Dwight!

  6. Life does that. It’s hard when the Big plan conflicts with our expectations. Glad you’re back safe! ❤️

  7. It may not seem so now, but perhaps there are lessons that need to be slowly absorbed from your adventure. I’m sorry it wasn’t the glory you hoped for, but I’m glad you got to go out, and disconnect from humanity for a bit.

  8. I hope you will find that peace you wish for us, even if your trip didn’t live up to your expectations.

  10. I think it’s a very good thing to take that space. Too often I’ve gone on and on trying to explain a very personal experience only to completely miss the mark and the experience gets muddled in the attempt. Sometimes, it’s just for us.🙏
