Take a look around

The next time you find yourself in a new place—actually, make that anywhere—take a good look around. If you stop long enough to do this, you may be surprised at what you will see. So many times we find ourselves running literally from one thing to the next, not stopping enough to realize the awesomeness of what is around us.

I would also like to challenge you to go to new places. The next time you find yourself without something to do, take a spontaneous road trip. You may be surprised where you end up and what you see and experience along the way. The last time I did this, I made some memories, to say the least.

Grab your best friend, cane pole, and a tube of crickets and head to your favorite creek to see what life has in store for you. Oh yeah, one more thing, if you find yourself 10 miles down a dirt road with two flat tires, turn it into a party.
