Finding my WHY in the Alaska wilderness never takes long. Sometimes, there is nothing that can do more for you than simply getting outside and breathing. Let the world wash over you, to allow you to remember the WHY.
The busyness that sums up most of our lives, the people and their hurts, worries, traumas and dramas, the deadlines and obligations.
I lost my WHY.
Trapped by the day-to-day, trapped by my own monsters and worries I found myself faltering over the last few days. I am not the only one. I see others around me, in our wilderness wonderland, feeling the same ho-hum drag of the day to day.
Alaska winters are something you cannot really become accustomed to. It is something that has to be taken each year, with the experience and knowledge of previous years, dealing with the dark and cold, and fighting the effects of both.
Finding My Why.
Heading out into the wilderness, for the first time in weeks, leaving every obligation behind, wasn’t easy. As a matter of fact, a post would be missed (and everyone knows how dedicated I am to what Alaska Chick’s Blog is…), my youngest child in tears because she wouldn’t be permitted to accompany me, and the worry of one of our team going “out” to simply find the Why.
The air, the water, the huge mountains all around me and filling me with the pureness only the pure can offer. Washing away cobwebs of the sticky days of work and pressure. Reminding me what powerful really is. Feeling the engine that allows me to race and feel the air and water on my face, breathing it into my lungs as it washes away all my tears and fears.
Riding into the wall of fog, was incredible. Everything around me completely vanished. Only the sound and feeling of my own snow-machine remained. Just me and the wind of flying over the ice, the water from the overflow misting and dampening my face and gear, washing away everything else.
What keeps you going, when the weight of all your thoughts and obligations are pushing you down? When you get wrapped up inside of everything “you have to get done”? What do you do? How do you regenerate?
