There are no guarantees in the arena. We will struggle, We will even fail. There will be darkness. But if we are clear about the values that guide us in our efforts to show up and be seen, we will always be able to find the light. We will know what it means to live brave.”
– Brené Brown

THANG – Continued Mosey north for a String of Pearls Beatdown

“Explorers depend on the North Star when there are no other landmarks in sight. The same relationship exists between you and your right life, the ultimate realization of your potential for happiness.-Martha Beck What is your guiding light? How do you set your own Northern Compass Your Values, Your Faith, Your Relationships, Your Work?

Stop Two: Creepy Corner (32nd & Pacific) 20 Monkey Humpers – 20 Pickle Pushers – 20 Ohh Ya’s

Our guiding light is nudging us every day towards our why. Yet if you’re not yet feeling called to your why, don’t worry, it will come if you continue to trust, and stay open to being inspired by any situation. When the world is dark, I find my greatest source of light. My mind is lucid when the moon still shines; all is quiet, and I listen to the birds begin their gentle chatter.

Stop Three: Park Place Stairs 20 Merkins – Bear Crawl Up Stairs – 20 Big Boys

So often, we refrain from acting on an intuition, from taking a leap of faith, from diving into the unknown because nobody has told us it’s okay to jump. But if we’re waiting for somebody to tell us we’re made to fly, we’ll wait our entire lives looking up at the clouds when we should be soaring amongst them.

Stop Four: Ford Birthplace 20 Alt Lunges – Walk Lunge Circle – 20 Bonnie Blairs IC

If we never hear the fateful words: you have what it takes, we must find the courage within ourselves to take that first step into the unknown.

Stop Five: Center Street Entrance 20 Heels to Heaven – 20 Overhead Press – 20 Merkins

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

I believe everyone was put on this earth for a reason. Does that mean you need to solve all of the problems of the world? No. Having said that, way too many of us are stuck in groundhog day, and defining your north star could be a way out of it.

COT – So, what’s your north star or your guiding light? Is it being the best father you can be? Is it being the best teacher? Is it being the best therapist? Is it providing fresh water to the world? Is it empowering children with disabilities? Is it living a simple life?
