I missed my monthly retreat yesterday. I didn’t feel well enough to face the challenge. It bothered me all day, especially since I found the strength to go to a Guy Fawkes Day bonfire party that night.
Personal growth vs. social interaction.
Why must these two things be opposing forces in my life?
I came upon this sign while hiking the trails around Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming. Devils Tower is a spiritual, sacred place for Native Americans. This sign was one of many reminders posted along the trail, asking hikers not to touch any of the prayer flags tied to trees and other offerings placed on rocks and in the woods, to stick to the path, and respect nature.
In the end, I need to stick to the path.
