Colorado was our first REAL adventure...

We had visited a couple nearby states, but Colorado was across the country. At this point I had decided that we were going to visit all 50 states and had officially started the 15 year timer.⠀

.⠀

I think about the beginning. I think about the fact that if I had worried about every single potential challenge and HOW we were going to possibly see all 50 states we never would have gotten this far. It would have been the easiest thing in the world to decide it wasn’t realistic. But here we are with 2 states left to go.⠀

.⠀

Beginnings are hard, they are scary. Sometimes they will go right and sometimes they will go wrong. So basically you just have to decide how bad you want it and keep moving forward. One step at a time. One state at a time. After all - if you want it bad enough you’ll find a way, if you don’t you’ll find an excuse.⠀

.⠀

Once you acknowledge and accept that beginnings are hard, your more mentally equipped to push through it. You don’t stop when it gets hard because you always knew it would it would get hard. You welcome the challenge as an expected guest. And pushing through something that’s important to you can have reward beyond explanation. ⠀

.⠀

So if you have something that nags at your heart, don’t give up on it. No one said it would be easy, you just have to keep going.
