I love being outside as often as possible regardless of the weather, my children are the same. I have found that when I need a new perspective on things or to clear my head the choice is clear. Go outside. I am lucky enought to live in an area that is filled with natures bounty. The list of things to do is endless…hiking, skiing, fishing, kayaking, rock climbing.
I am also lucky enough to have a core group of friends that enjoy the outdoors as much as I do. We are raising our children to get out and explore because you never know what you might find.
There are days that I probably should stay home and clean more, or wash the ever building stack of laundry. But, there are only so many days in the year that are filled with brilliant color and grand fortune to be discovered around each corner.
You may even have a chance meeting, or gain a new perspective!
You could possibly be giving a gift of a lifetime that does not cost anything at all…
So the next time someone tells you to “Take a hike” don’t consider it to be a bad thing…
Because it quite possibly could be the best thing!
