“Don’t look up at the whole mountain… focus on that next step, and do the next right thing.” - Elizabeth Vargas
My kids enjoy a hike more when there’s a big payoff at the midway point. Hiking out to a gorgeous view at the top seems to always help make the boredom a little more worthwhile.
But what beats even a beautiful vista? A waterfall. Especially one that you can take off your socks and shoes and play in.
As adults, the older we get, a lot of us eventually realize it really is the journey and not the destination. The path is long and winding.
Eventually it ends. But a lot of us have chosen to be completely present as much as possible – not to mention completely sober – until that happens.
But even though we know it is the journey and not just the destination – not much beats a beautiful waterfall.
This Eighteen month coin celebrates the path while also celebrating the joy of stopping every now and then to take off your socks and shoes and splash around.
Note: Coin is 1.5 inches around.
