Colorado Trail : Post 7

On Living Your Dream

Cliche Travel Quote of the Day: “And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”

The thing about cliches, is a lot of the time, they’re true…

I met a man last week who is a successful doctor. He was out here training for the Leadville 100. He has it all, in terms of the American Dream. And yet…He told us he feels like he wasted his 20s and early 30s, and now he’s trying to make up for lost time. Meeting people and hearing them say things like that makes me feel like I’m living my best life.

As far as we know, we have this one beautiful life to live. So do what you love, before it’s too late. Before you have too many commitments. Before your body starts to breakdown. Don’t give up on your dreams, whatever they may be.
