"The Mountains are calling and I must go" is one of my favorite quotes from John Muir. He was one of the first advocates for preservation. You see his quote everywhere shirts, bags, posters, etc. But how often do we follow his advice? It might resonate strongly with many of us but when was the last time you just pushed "go" and left? We are a society full of excuses, later, tomorrow, next week, next year (you get the picture).
Next time you have an opportunity "Carpe Diem" Seize the Day. Your new gear, coffee shop habit or dinner out can be put off. Take the moment and run with it. There is always time to take a mental health day, don't worry the e-mails, work will still be there tomorrow. Tomorrow it will be other people looking at your photos on Instagram rather than you looking at everyone else's.
