Spent an amazing time with some awesome souls this summer. I am missing them as I settle back into my quiet routine at home. I miss their joy... their passion to live each day. Not to get through each day, but to LIVE it with enjoyment. I miss their presence. Sitting with people content in their own heart creates a space for contentment to unfold in my own. I miss their challenge. These folks don't let me sit back and do nothing. With them I am inspired to challenge myself, to step into the world that challenges me because they believe in me. They won't do it for me, and I know that if I fall, they will dust me off and plan the next attempt with me. I miss being who they believe I can be. It's tough to be our own accountability master. It's tough to make ourself get off the couch and go for the run or walk away from the internet and get outside to play. These bright lights spend their lives in the real material enjoyment of nature, sun, and conversation.
Perhaps it was not the location, it was the feeling of being engaged in living because there were some amazing people to live for.
