Improving your enthusiasm

Lunch spot yesterday at Hidden Lake.
Context.

We need great habits and rituals to maintain and improve our enthusiasm. Our brain (and heart) reacts and responds to the thoughts and feelings we feed it.

If we habitually “go with the flow,” we’re living a life by default – letting everything around us program our thoughts and feelings and priorities.

By design or by default.

Either way deeply shapes our daily habits and rituals.

And our enthusiasm.

Going to the Sun mountain

Going-to-the-Sun mountain
This angle of Going-to-the-Sun Mountain can only be attained one way. Heavy Runner in foreground.

Yesterday was a spiritual experience.

Overcoming a great fear is liberating.

Overcoming is confidence-building.

Thank you to Stacy and Steve for facilitating the opportunity. It was because of their generosity that i know the view from 9,156′.

You can feel the difference

jeff noel and Swiftcurrent Motor Inn staff at Nell's restaurant
Two Swiftcurrent employees at Nell’s restaurant, Enol (Spain) and Nana (Japan). Saw them everyday. They felt like a temporary Family. Nell’s had the best wifi connection.

You can feel the difference when a season is coming to an end. 

The “grocery” store in St. Mary has plenty of alcohol, candy, and processed snacks. Healthy, unprocessed foods are no longer available as the season is about to end.

The staff seem so ready to return to civilization or move on to their next adventure. A natural flow of seasonal emotions.

Seasonal work always starts with the honeymoon phase and ends with decent drudgery accentuated by the anticipation of the next honeymoon. 

Find your joy in over-focusing on little things that are scalable daily. 

See if you can sustain the honeymoon all season.

Trust your gut (squared)

Twenty steps from Nell’s front door.
Something told me to walk outside after ordering breakfast. Upon reentering Nell’s i told Nana (hostess) to go take a look. She was so grateful.
Turned 180 degrees to see Mt. Wilbur ablaze.
Tree double as umbrellas.
You can walk around puddles but you can’t stop the slow up-splash from walking fast.
There’s only so much straddling water that you can do.
Almost an hour of the 140-minute hike was spent under a pine tree.

Trust your gut, squared.

First, order the iPhone 11 the minute it goes on sale and worry about delivery later.

Second, walk out into the parking lot and look East.

Third, turn around 180 degrees.

Fourth, call off the early afternoon hike after 90 minutes – which included waiting under a tree for nearly an hour for the rain to stop.

Every picture tells a story don’t it?

Enol led, Homani second, and i brought up the rear.
It gets more precarious.
Yikes. Can i do it?
Can i do it? Yes, i can do it!
A serious climb up from the flat Swiftcurrent Pass Trail.
The Goat trail gave way to no trail.
First big milestone – our destination – Shangrila.
Always in my pocket.

Every picture tells a story don’t it?

(Note: Hat tip to Rod Stewart’s song by the same name as this blog post.)
