Lessons Learned – Put it Behind You

Over the years, I've come to realize there are many lessons to be learned while enjoying the great outdoors that can apply to the overall road towards a positively healthy life, and I've found a way to share that with others through discussions over some of the many photos I've taken on my own adventures. These posts are not meant to provide all the answers, but rather prompt a discussion. Please feel free to join in...


There will be obstacles along the way, or the path we need to take may not be very obvious. Things will get difficult at times, but you need to be careful about letting them take over everything before you. Dwelling on them may either block your view of what lies for you further down the path, or allow these things to overshadow you.

I’m not suggesting ignoring it, or totally forgetting about it, we can learn from these challenges. But also don’t let it consume you. Allow yourself to put them behind you, and they’ll continue to become smaller and smaller. You may need help from others to do so, reach out if needed, not every challenge must be faced alone.

The more you put that mountain behind you, the more it looks like just a molehill.

Is there a mountain you’re facing that could be left behind you at this point? Is there a molehill in your past that you once thought you would never get over? Please feel free to share in the comments.

The point of these topics is not for just me to just share them and move on, but rather to foster some discussion on these ideas and how they apply in "your" life. We're not sitting around the same table, but we can still have a discussion. Just leave your own thoughts in the comments below, or send them to me privately if you prefer.
