Have you ever changed direction at the last minute on a well planned trip? Like a summer trip, for instance...You have all your maps in place and hotels/campgrounds picked out. Now there is a change of plans and you basically have to start all over. (Who do I know that recently did that? Ha) Ok...check it out. My first leg of the Rocky Mountain Frenzy...a six hour leg of the trip from Salt Lake City to Basalt, Co. I like big maps...my eyes can't see the small stuff anymore...ha! I stayed in Snowmass 20 years ago and loved every minute of it! The mountains and aspens are so gorgeous!! But, this time around, I will be searching for water...river water! And big fish...The Roaring Fork and The Frying Pan River should do the trick!
Mid Week Tippet: (How about that?) Changing direction...have you had a time in your life where you decided that maybe a change would be beneficial to your everyday life? ie: Change of educational goals, change of job or work schedule, change of spending budget... Sometimes, we just have to jump a little off course to see if there is something out there that might be better for us. Make life a little easier...A few years ago, I changed my career as a small business owner to an accountant... At the time, I didn't realize how important that move would be...until this past year. I now have a more flexible schedule and
less stress when I get home...don't have to think about my job 24/7 like I did before...It actually was good planning for the unplanned surprises that have occurred this past year and month with health issues in the family!!
I have come to the realization that things in life don't always stay the same... If they did, how boring would that be? Haha. I am making the most of this Rocky Mtn. Frenzy trip and getting some R&R because when I get back...it is open heart surgery time for my hubby. And those take awhile to recover from. (I'm an awful nurse...) A little more home time instead of running all over the countryside with my fly rod! So, I guess that I just want to say...live life to the fullest and enjoy your family, friends and passions for life. And try to be prepared physically, mentally, or even spiritually for what may lie ahead. Our courses aren't always planned. You can get a hop, skip, and a jump at the very last moment!! : ) It's just part of life's journey!
