"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and bow to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and nothing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." - Tecumseh. Warrior of the Shawnee.
I've lived on this planet for almost 37 years I have NEVER came across more wisdom in a single paragraph in my entire life. We should all strive to live by these words. Ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world around us could only benefit from it.
Well almost 2 months and over $300.00 later I finally have my hammock!!! After getting scammed and receiving a $40.00 joke of a child’s size hammock from a company in japan I found the right website and got the right one. $189.00! Only to find out that the sleeping pad is sold separate and needed to actually use the product. $107 after shipping. Than the sleeping pad never showed up because it was a “accident” and was just sitting in there warehouse!
It is a great product but not worth all the hassle! Can’t wait to get it out to the hills and try it out!
Everything new is uncomfortable. It has to be by its nature🤪Sounds easy enough to deal with, but how many people do you know who’ve avoided taking action, avoided trying something new, avoided starting something that might not work because the prospect of doing any of those things is, well, uncomfortable? 😮😮Probably more than you or I’d care to admit…The silver lining: it’s never too late to start. It’s never too late to try something new. It’s never too late to change. In the end, the choice – and the responsibility – is entirely yours❤️ Whatever you decide, Keep On’ keepin’ On❤️ go on more adventures🤗buy less couches.
I miss my sleeping bag, no really, I do.
My sleeping bag is most definitely warm, it is also very comfortable, the material is soft and silky and it smells like fresh linen. Must be the fabric softener sheets in the tote that it is stored in.
My current bag l, the fanciest one that I have owned is a Big Agnes Lost Ranger, my wife and I bought a matching pair for our honeymoon to Yellowstone, hers is the Roxy Ann (did I mention they zip together). The reason I miss it isn’t what brand it is or what the thermal rating says or even the feel of the material. For me a sleeping bag has alway been part of every adventure, weather it was at the cabin curled up on a cool late summer morning with a breeze blowing through the still open window, or falling asleep as the rain softly tapped on the fly of our tent or waking up under a star filled sky with waves lapping at the shore. The adventures, the dreams, and the memories to be made, that is what I miss!
I miss my sleeping bag, when will I get to sleep in it again.

Back at it again! Blessed to have another amazing opportunity to hold another motivational speaking seminar and leadership workshop to inspire and lead over 400 future leaders! Coming in I assumed I was going to be the only one facilitating, leading, teaching, and inspiring but soon realized and discovered along the way and afterwards that learning, growth, and development is a two way street. I learned and took away as much from the audience as I hope the audience learned and took away from me (though in different aspects and regards). Blessed to have such an amazing opportunity bestowed upon me. Grateful to have experienced the experience. Appreciative of the new memories. Thankful for the positive feedback I received from members of the audience. Anxious and hungry for more opportunities in inspiring others and leaving a genuine and everlasting impact. Great experience, great audience, and great vibes. I couldn't have asked for more. Question: Can you find me? Hint: I'm one of the Asian guys 😂 (which one you ask?). Shocking Reveal: I'm on the bottom left!
