One of my favorite movies is Bridge to Terabithia. One of my favorite quotes is “[With a] Mind like yours wide open, you could create a whole new world.” The key to keeping your mind wide open is keeping your eyes wide open and taking in what you see. Really taking it in with a mindset of “what if” not “it’s always.” I’ve logged hundreds of miles on two local trails. Each time I set out, I have to remind myself that there will be something new and interesting on that same old trail. Sometimes it’s an unexpected encounter with wildlife, but other times it’s a new spin on something that’s always been there. It’s a fun state of mind to have, even if it’s not one that “adults” or “professionals” should have.
