Waterfalls & Mountains in the Carolinas & North Georgia
I took a yoga class in Asheville, NC and the instructor (originally from CO) mentioned to me how much she loved living in the Blue Ridge Mountains because they are offer a sense of femininity the Rockies can't compete with. The Blue Ridge Mountains are curvier, gentler, more sensitive and possess an inner radiance unlike other mountain ranges. Her perspective made me appreciate our journey in a different way, realizing differences are not problems but rather opportunities for growth. Problems are really just challenging us to expand our minds and our perspectives about how we evaluate situations and the people around us.
We meet SO many wonderful people on the road and usually, all with wonderfully different beliefs about the city or area we are in. They all have different ideas on what to do, what to eat, what to see, what not to see, what to experience and when to experience those activities. In many of the towns, we truly rely on local opinions to shape our experience there. However, recently I am becoming more aware of how easy it is to get caught up in other people's beliefs systems. I find myself ingesting their "labels" or opinions about what they think is good or bad, pretty or ugly, cold or warm, tasty or flavorless. People have radically different ways of describing what is worthy or unworthy of our time spent on the road yet those opinions are just based on how each individual evaluates those situations... which is why I guess they are all so different. Beliefs, opinions, labels (whatever you want to call them) are just a feeling of certainty, something we make up, something WE create. The meaning or evaluation that we give to an event IS the event. So below are a few events we experienced in the Carolinas and North Georgia, feel free to design your own feelings as you see fit.
