So it”s not going to be possible for me to walk the Appalachian Trail this year.
It would be a lie to say that I’m not disappointed, but here’s the thing, I actually am in a way grateful.
I have never been a patient person (no fake gasps of surprise please), and have secretly always wanted a lesson in patience. I think the time may have come for me to learn to wait.
There are so many things that I have gained by even daring to think about walking the AT and I am grateful for all of them. The main gain has been this blog and finding out that I love writing.
So I will wait a year and go next March. In the meantime, I’m going to do lots of walking trips (anyone welcome to join me), and learn some things for the trail next year.
Maybe by the time next year rolls around, I will found someone to walk with me.
