Ain't No Mountain High Enough...

Thursday, January 26, 2012

When you're up on a mountain in the moonlight surrounded by stars, snow and the cold night air hoping that you can get to the bottom and have your fiancée waiting for you, you have a lot of time to think and pray. I wasn't lost....I just had to find my way with no flashlight and no cell phone. Well after midnite I finally came out on the road and within 10 minutes was picked up by search and rescue. Cold, thirsty, hungry and bruised, I was alive. I am a survivor and I am sorry I scared every one but I wasn't giving up. I had the stars to guide me....and God to watch over me.
Will I make those mistakes again? No. Will I climb that mountain again? Yes. There are days I'd much rather be on that mountain than at work....I am finding it easy to feel depressed about not really being retired. I'd rather be sightseeing and hiking and playing with my cats. I try not to waste my time off, but I never seem to have enough of it. A week from now it will have been a year since we closed on this house and I still haven't touched anything in the garage. How do you get your motivation back? I used to be really active in a couple organizations but now I just want to run the car club and be left alone to geocache in peace. Just needed to vent....

    There are highs and lows in life just like the breath goes in and out I prefer to accept the lows.
Really accepting what is, means you don't think about it anymore. Dwelling on something means you want it to be different.
Wanting something to be different than it is causes us to suffer.
I also prefer not to suffer.
You can clear the mind by concentrating on the breath.

    Geeez glad you are okay. Think you had visitors to the garden the other day ;)
Sometimes you just need to take little detours.Maybe commit to do one box a week. then go hiking climbing and playing which in my world are WAY more interesting,Another way to face this dilemma is to admit you have lived with out the stuff in the garage for a year so you may not really need it LOL. Hang in there pretty lady xo
