Setting boundaries is an important step on the path towards loving and respecting oneself. As a contractor, I have opportunities to work everyday of the week and as appealing as that sounds, it is an easy trap to fall into and one which I have tumbled down many a times in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and am very grateful for the opportunity to do it. I recognized early on that when I give too much of myself away, I have nothing to offer anyone else. I’m not only depriving myself but those who come to me for their support. I made a commitment to myself last summer that Saturdays are for me and for those people who really impact my life. It’s a day for exploration and an overall recharge of my internal batteries. This past Saturday took me to Point Roberts and a park that I frequently visited as a youth. It was nostalgic and inspiring to see the things that have changed over the years and the things that remain the same. This experience helped me to embrace the changes I’ve made and allowed for a moment to look deep at aspects of my life I haven’t changed. Peering over the edge of a cliff to get a better glimpse of some nesting eagles led me to this beautiful spot. The sun worked her magic which inspired me to let go a little more and sit with the truth of my surroundings. Thank you Mother Nature and Saturdays for your constant inspiring and truth bombing lessons! Keep’em coming!


Want More BENG In Your Life?


I’m an outdoorsy kinda guy! Love over packing my golden backpack full of just incase “Boy Scout” things, hopping on my steed and riding wherever my impulses guide me. Some days I end up a few blocks from home, while others I end up further than I ever imagined. Behind all of it, a desire to see, hear, taste, smell and touch this planet. It’s such a vibrant beautiful place that my desire to witness and experience everything and anything that comes across my path, is painfully addicting. My name is Ben and I’m an addict! Im a junkie for exploring life and all its offerings!
