When I feel lost or am lacking a sense of purpose in life then I start seeking help, asking questions and spending more time outdoors. I guess nature has a way of sending me the answers with more clarity than sitting in my bedroom with the shades drawn feeling hopeless.
And, that is just how I have felt at many times over the last four months. Hopeless that things would get better, that I would follow through on my vision of building an international digital marketing agency and that I would ever become the healthy athlete that I once was.
This lead me to a very dark place of mind. Emotions would drift over me like a cloud and showers would come raining from my eyes without warning with no clear reason. The persistence of this has been ruthless and so I have started to ask questions and seek advice.
I know disconnected alone time in nature will continue to be one of the many routine experiences I undertake in order to reach my higher self, to realize my full potential, to become content, happy, fulfilled, financially free and to achieve my grandest dreams. So, this past weekend I adventured into the woods with a conscious purpose to begin finding clarity and contentment with who I am and where I am heading.
I visited Waldo Lake and Crater Lake National Park; two of the most beautiful places in the world. My nights were spent under silent star filled skies. Saturday, I went on a five-hour visioneering hike, during which time the only person I could talk to was myself. And, you better believe I talked myself through answers to a series of questions that are starting to truly transform me.
"The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." - Helen Keller
My answers to these questions are very personal as yours likely are too. These are great questions to reference whether we are on a peak or in a valley of life. For me, they have helped to begin providing clarity and purpose again.
Enjoy these photos from my weekend getaway. And, remember that some well-intentioned disconnected you time is often all you need to begin creating the life you've always imagined.
And, please do not worry about me. I am putting in the work to connect with people that can guide me through the valley and back to the summit. I will summit again.
