One of my favorite movies of all time is a documentary about three guys and their two attempts to climb Mount Meru in the Himalayas. Aptly titled, MERU.
Totally worth watching on Netflix or your binge watch buffet of choice.
I thought climbing might be something I'd do. Alas not.
After spending a warm spring day trashing my hands and knees on a rock face off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, I had to own it.
A climber? Me? Not.
As it turns out, I had some kind of cosmic belay keeping me from crashing down.
Because not long after that fell through :) I stumbled upon an ad for a part-time job at a ropes course.
At first it felt like I was settling for the "next best thing."
It turned out to be the discovery of a better, happier way forward.
(Check out the picture and look at those smiles! Need I say more?)
It was a turning point.
All this started because I was bored at work and ready for a change but didn't know how to make a change happen.
The ropes course job was a side-hustle
What started as kind of hopeful lark where I learned how to tie a bunch of cool knots, met amazing people and basically had a blast, ended up turning the page to the next chapter.
