Thought for the Day

Saw this and right now, in my life, this means so much to me.

In the past two (2) years, I have done more things that I didn’t know I could do, wished that I could do and wanted to do.

I am still a work in progress, but I will get to¬†80%-100% of thinking… that is a promise I am making to myself!

New Adventure — Enchanted Rock

Over the weekend. I decided to take a roadtrip to Enchanted Rock in Fredericksburg, Texas.

I had heard of that place and some people I know have been there. So I just thought I would check it out.

We, I had no idea what to expect. It took me abou 90 minutes to get there. It was as in the middle of the afternoon. So, it was in th ed high 90’s. I was told to back lots of water for the “climb” up to the summit.

I was all prepared with my water for this trek to th ed summit. Well, if I would have read more about Enchanted Rock, I would have learned how to get to the top of the rock, you have to climb 425′ up a steep rock.

Once I finally made it to the top, it was so worth it. First I was thrilled that I made it up there. Eighteen months ago, I could have NEVER climb up that rock.

But the view was so beautiful. Blue skies and clouds. There was a nice cool breeze up there.

Enchanted Rock (16710 Ranch Rd 965, Fredericksburg TX) is a pink granite mountain located in the Llano Uplift approximately 17 miles (27 km)north of Fredericksburg, Texas and 24 miles (39 km)south of Llano, Texas, United States.

It is the largest pink granite monadnock in the United States. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, a part of the Texas state park system, includes 1,644 acres (665 ha). Designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1936.

From Wikipedia

Here’s a picture of me on top of the rock.

I’m wearing my new Detroit Lions t-shirt. There is a story on that, but that’s for another day.

I had such a great time there, I will name more trips up there. It even inspired me to take the trek up Stone Mountain in Georgia!

This picture is me thanking Jesus that I made it down the rock safety.

The top of the rock is above my head.

After I left Enchanted Rock. I drive to downtown Fredericksburg for dinner at ins of the German restaurant. It was really good.

After that, since I had to get my steps in, that’s a whole other story too, I parked my car and walked the sidewalks.

It was such a pretty night to be walking about. I stopped to get a treat snd headed to the park to enjoy it.

After I was done, I felt the need to get more steps in. So I walked around the park for about 30 minutes.

I was ready to call it a night and drove home while listen to my 80’s music.

It was such a great day and I cannot wait to go back.

Side note: my goal is to get 20,000 steps in a day, I went way over that on that day. Thanks RC for pushing me to work towards my goals.

Finally Feeling It

It’s been a journey I started in August 2016. Just now, I am feeling the effects of the changes that have happened. I’m not a 100% there yet, but I’m heading in the right direction.

I am glad I did not give up on myself, even when their were times when I wanted to.

As always, make it a great day and…

What’s next?
