“In those endless years it took you to grow out of childhood and stand on your own two feet, you learned about the world in doses. Some of what you learned (and thought you understood) has evolved over time with added experience, but some of the discoveries you made and the stories you constructed around them as a child, even as young as three, have stayed the same, child-like and unchanged, no matter how many years have passed.


That’s living life in the past, seeing the world around you through a child’s eyes in a child’s story. You’ve been walking around in kid’s sneakers and they’re much too small for you. Here’s how to fit yourself out with good pair of hiking boots to go the distance.”
