We just returned form a vacation to North Carolina which was great but had some trying moments. Our little girl got an ear infection and was not a great sleeper in bed with us so my morning started before 4 am most of the time. We did have a great time and were able to spend some time with loved ones. I had an extra day when we got back so I work up early and tackled a difficult hike I've been thinking about for quite a while. I struggled a lot but it helped tie the trip and the last couple months together. The long struggle and long game are worth it. I find myself seeking the quick dopamine hits with my phone, food, and all kinds of other things in life. The 5 hr hike was not quick or easy success.
