We are at a crossroads. Or maybe not a crossroads but a small intersection.. There isn't really a wrong way, just a different way to go. Do I want to be an outdoors person? I think so but I'm not totally sure. I know there are a few things against me becoming an outdoor person, but I think I need to step out of my comfort zone..
I want to be a very active person. I want my kids to be very active people. I don't really know how to be an active person. We camp, we hike but we don't really do anything fantastic or cool.. So, I want to embrace life. I want to experience the thrill of the unknown and the scariness of the out of norm (for me) I also want to experience life. It isn't that I have not experienced life, but I've only seen a bit of it. My fears have stopped me from doing a lot of things.
So I've created a plan. A list of 10 things I do want to accomplish within the next 5 years. Some are pretty simple, some are simple for others but terrifying for me. I'm actually not going to say what they all are here yet but I will say a few are all about embracing this lovely frozen north that we live in.
First on my to-do list. Tubing. I've decided that we will be going to the mountains on the day before my dad's death-anniversary. I want to celebrate life. I want to remember my dad in a way that doesn't really make sense, but makes sense to me. I want to have fun! I want to fly down the mountain in a rubber tube and scream and have my dad laughing beside me.
