I did something today that I have never done before. I hiked alone. It was wonderful. It was serene. It was slightly scary when I saw a bear 🐻 I am not sure why it has taken me this long to build up the courage to do this. I know I am fully capable. I just have never tested myself as the only one who is able to make the decisions. I have always felt comfortable knowing there are other people with me even if I am the leader/guide/most experienced. I’m glad I did and I plan to do it again and again. From a risk perspective, it gives me more opportunities to learn. From a personal experience, it gives me time with nature to reflect.
