While some of you may know I used to be in the military, none of you likely know that I struggled with my transition. Thought I was fortunate compared to many, I bore the scars of multiple deployments both physically and mentally. The place that I eventually found peace was in nature. In the year after separating, I often disappeared into the mountains. Eventually these outings brought me to a place where I could function. To this day, whenever I feel things are getting out of hand, my first instinct is to get outside.
If you’ve been fighting to shake the funk, why not try to get outside this weekend? Go for a hike, go on a run, ski, bike, climb, surf, or just sit on a blanket under a shade tree. Whatever it is, here’s hoping it helps you like it helped me. And of course, if you need an ear or hand, feel free to reach out. at Hawaii
