Every time I’m in Canada I find reasons to love it more and more. I’ve driven roughly over 4,000 miles through Western Canada in the last 14 months or so. As you venture further North, the towns are few and far between. But, that leaves you plenty of wide open landscape to enjoy, wildlife to encounter, and thoughts to sort through.
I believe it’s important to take self-inventory, stop and take notice of what we’re currently doing and maybe revisit the recent past. It’s not important that we dwell on the mistakes and shortcomings but it is imperative that we learn from them and do our best not to repeat them.
We humans are piss poor when it comes to expectations. I know I sure am. But, as it relates to me, I’m bad about over-estimating my own abilities and therefore, setting expectations incredibly too high. And, while I believe you should aim high, there is a point of diminishing returns. (more…)
As a young, crazy ambitious dude, I have found myself in quite the predicaments, from time to time. Overall, I am happy with my progress and accomplishments but there is one nasty habit, that it’s taken me a while to rid of.
This trip up North may have been my best road trip yet! I enjoyed this trip in ways I haven’t enjoyed others. For this trip, I slowed down a bit, stopped more, and witnessed things I never have before.
This one was one to be remembered and I’m so glad I stopped to recap this journey. I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed living it! (more…)
