Being proactive is one of our core values. Today we were feeling off. After contemplation we couldn’t come up with a reason but felt disconnected, far away from each other, our minds clouded. When difficulties come up in life we can either react out of fear, making ourselves victims or be proactive and see it as as opportunity to grow through perseverance.

So when we felt oppressed we got out in front by taking some time to ourselves and explored some of our favorite dunes on the shores of Lake Michigan. As we were hiking up the steep slopes to get to the top peak for the best view I saw this log. This dead piece of wood was in the way of our upward progress to beautiful views and a rest. It could have been seen as an obstacle but taking a second to pause we saw it in a different light- as something that’s beautiful despite being an obstacle.
