Full Throttle

“There’s a rebel lying deep in my soul.” – Clint Eastwood

A long weekend cabin getaway was good medicine for all participants. The dogs waded in the lake, wandered in the woods, played without hesitation and rested well. On the last escape into the woods, Molly came back looking like a large skunk, unapologetic. If you’re going to go, go big, go deep, get dirty, no holding back, nothing less than full throttle.

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” – Lord Byron

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” – Lord Byron

When people disappoint (and they will, including you), when you question your commitments, don’t measure your input by others input or lack thereof. We only have control of how and what we invest into each day. A life well-lived comes up short if not lived at full throttle, in the present, to our complete capacity and potential. Be a full participant, not a spectator.
