My best first last
Have you ever not tried something because of failure? Because you may come in last? I’ve addressed this on previous podcasts and the need to move away from fear of failure and living with judgment to a new perspective of living curiously but today I want to expand on that with a story about my recent snowshoe adventure and how coming in either almost last or dead last was so sweet.
So I spent most of my adult life before age 45 living in warmer climates and not partaking in such outdoorsy or mountainous pursuits. I did not try skiing (on snow that is) until I was in my mid 20s, didn’t try mountain biking until my 30s, didn’t get into snowboarding until my 40s and now car camping until my 50s. There are many other new experiences and adventures and new likes - like a growing admiration and love of history - to dive into at another time as today I’m sharing about one of my outdoor favorites, my snowshoe adventure.
Any how sweet it was to have my best first last.
