When you can choose from many at any given point?
I originally wanted to go straight to the Four Corners, but as I started driving, I realized that trying to get to that one destination is just crap. I did that twice last year; once to Duluth, Minnesota and the other to Abbotsford, British Columbia. What sucked is that I don’t remember much of the drive, even though I spent a good amount of time driving. I was so focused on my destination that I didn’t consider anything else along the way.
This morning as I went to grab a cup of coffee and a muffin, I thought, what the hell, just stay in the present moment, keep an open mind and enjoy the journey.
There were a few ways I could take to get to the Four Corners from where I started today. I decided to take the most uncomfortable looking and isolated road and wow, it was awesome. There was no traffic and nothing for miles. Then as I kept driving, I came up to Iron Mountain and saw this sweet sign pole on Hwy 62. Not only was it a sign pole, but I felt it was a sign for me. I picked up what the Universe was putting down real quick.
After I caught onto the message, I just laughed. I thought wow, well ok then, where to next? Lake Havasu City? Sure, why not! I drove through and it was beautiful. There was just so much to see but nothing that really stood out like the sign pole, so I kept going.
As I type this, I’m at a rest area! I thought it would be fun to do something different and pull out my MacBook and put my Hotspot to use!
I can’t explain how happy I am that I made this decision. I know it’s only the start and anything can happen, but I really am stoked about this adventure! And what’s crazy, is that this adventure is even more exciting because I don’t have a lot of money. Why? Because it forces me to really appreciate everything within the range of my senses and helps me to have more faith in myself and the kind of energy I want in my life. It also humbles me and challenges me to the max in order to gain mental strength and lose unnecessary fear. I love that! But anyways, I guess now I shall get back on the road for another couple of hours and see what else I come across. Cheers!
As a side note: That song Happy by Pharrell Williams started playing on the radio as I started typing the last paragraph. Coincidence? Nah. Synchronicity? Yep. Too funny!
