This is real life people… I just can’t make this s_ _t up! My nephew had a Garden of Gethsemane moment on Holy Thursday evening of all nights, asking if it was possible to let this cup pass. It turns out that his brother-in-law, a seasoned Spartan warrior and the instigator of our Beast Quest, is not going to be able to make it to Big Fork, MT to join us in attacking The Beast. My nephew called and tempted me with the prospect of postponing The Beast for some other time and that he and the fam could just come visit us in Helena for the first time. After all, he said, “Montana can be cold and nasty the first weekend in May!”
I have to confess the offer was quite tempting! I thought about how we could go for burgers at the Old Salt Outpost, drink beers at Blackfoot River Brewery and play a few games of Catan! However, after a few short moments contemplating what fun we could have, I just couldn’t do it! I explained to him, “I just went public about The Beast on my new blog and I’ve been telling everyone I know that I’m doing this thing.” While the suggestion was made that blog postings can be deleted, he ultimately asked my grand-nephew, a 15 y/o gymnast, what he wanted to do… and he said “Let’s Do It!”
Yeah baby! That’s what I’m talking about! That’s commitment! We are really going to do this thing! Life happens. Situations change. It is so important to keep your word to yourself and stay committed to your goals. There will always be temptations to pull you off course. The bottom line? It is possible to do it all. We Will Do The Beast AND we will still have a little time to hang out, enjoy some Blackfoot growlers, and perhaps play some Catan. Oorah!
