At one point this trail was so rocky, so rough so unlike anything I have seen in Wildwood, I felt I had stepped onto another planet. I envision the moon this way, desolate, nothingness, rock hard dirt and rocks everywhere. Just like life, most of this year has felt like we are on another planet, nothing looks the same as when we started the new year.
We are in the midst of big changes and it does not feel good. It never feels good while going through the changes. I too don't feel good when I personally go through life changes. It is much later that I can appreciate the shifts and growth that have come about because of the changes.

I was happy to come to the end of my hike and to be on smooth and even ground. I knew eventually I would be on solid ground and I was grateful for I felt more comfortable and at ease with each step. I believe we all will, at some point, be on solid ground. I also knew that by focusing on other things like my breath and my body during the hike made the time pass quicker and the hike actually became more tolerable.
