How Many Days in Your Life?

happy face, solo, winter summit



If you are 25 I suspect you have never bothered to count.  The answer is 9131.  If you are 45 the number is 16436

I never use to think about such things.  But now I do.  That in itself means something.

Never forget that your life can change for ever in just a moment's time. 

You only get so many days in this wonderful journey. Make sure you use each and every day you are here to the best of your abilities. Something not so easy for most of us.  It can be hard work. 

Each one comes at us all in the same way.  Just one day at a time.  Your choice on how you decide to use them and with whom.  


The HAPPY dance, post race
 
Happy New Year 2013!
And remember, no one gets out alive :)

Awesome Dane,
Your story is pretty inspiring, and this blog, which I check daily, is unlike anything else on the web for its detail, message, and all things alpine climbing.
Hope to read much more of you in 2013!
