A black mustang named "Crow" is enough information for me, but I'd like to share more with you.
We are all on a journey, some on a horse, some pulling a trailer, and some in the secret places in our mind.
Today I had the honor and privilege to meet a fellow traveler on his journey, some of which you can see in the video below.
Matt Littrell is making his way across the country on the back of a horse from the east coast to the west. Why? There are many answers, but only those who have walked their own path will truly understand.
I asked the usual questions and can appreciate having to tell your same story over and over. But this is one of the few times when talking with someone I knew he knew I knew what he was doing -- because it is the same thing I've been doing.
I keep saying over and over, it's not what we do, but who we are. But you can't get that when you never leave home... true warriors understand that courage is more than what we fight, it is also how we live.
Life is meant to change you.
The question is, will you let it change you for the better?
Matt has his own story, his own struggles, and what I hope will be for him, his own solutions.
But he knows the secret I've been hoping you too will learn. The answers aren't in changing what we do, but who we are. The solutions aren't in the system, but in each other.
Matt shared that when his mom asked him why he was doing this the only answer that came after his own darkest night of the soul was this: Peace.
Sitting with him today I could feel that while the physical journey has many miles to go, the real journey he is on has been traveled well.
I hope you will share Matt's journey with those you know. There is nothing more powerful than our story and it is in deepest appreciation and gratitude I say to you Matt, thank you for sharing yours with me.

Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
