Stop and assess yourself right now...what are your values, what are you missing, what is your path???  Now make sure all these things are in alignment and if they aren't take the steps to get there.  Life is a journey that needs constant assessment and adjustments.  

 

I'm launching this podcast on a different platform...check out Spreaker and look up Be Ultra.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path- What is your path?  Believe in the spirit of God and Jesus along with the belief you have of yourself.  Those two beliefs coupled together will take you to amazing places. 

Philippians 4:6-7 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God will surpass all understanding.

Today I share a great quote and I'm not sure who wrote it but I love it!!  Change is inevitable and sometimes we feel it coming on strongly.  I wanted to acknowledge the thoughts most everyone has when approaching a change in our lives.

Trail etiquette is important for all the outdoors people to assure we are being respectful and diplomatic on the trails.  Represent your outdoor recreation as a mountain biker, runner, hiker, backpacker, equine rider or hunter.  The important thing to remember is that we all have love for the outdoors, which means we are not that different!

 

Check out the podcast The Hunting Collective EP:73 to learn more about trail etiquette coming from a hunting perspective.

Don't forget to stop and enjoy the play!!

"Play isn't something separate from the daily grind of life.  It is not something to finally get to when work ends.  Rather, play like music, is a force that we feel in our bones and that whispers in our hearts. As kids demonstrate play is not over there, but forever here and now."

-Vince Gowmon

 

"It's okay to be absurd, ridiculous and downright irrational at times, silliness is the sweet syrup that helps us swallow the bitter pills of life." - Richelle E. Goodrich

Howard Thurman- "Don't ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Use this week to assess your life and ask yourself what you need to feel more alive!!  Build a good foundation of good health to help you focus on your passion.
