Summer School: Day One

Today we head out on horseback for five days in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. You might say it is our summer break after an intense couple of months of summer school, taught as usual, by that tenured professor called Life.

While we are out on trail I invite you to reflect on a few things I’ve learned.

Things never turn out as I expect.

This is not the summer I expected, but it has been one for the books. As a result of the summer I’ve had rather than the one I planned, I’ve learned to flex with what comes rather than fight it. Because of who I’ve been called to be and what I’ve been called to do, I’ve developed more capacity to know what is mine to do, and, what is not.

What have you learned and who have you become as a result of the summer you’ve had rather than the one you expected?
