Welcome to the Community Everyone!
I started the Outdoor Blogger Network 3 years ago, and until today — 705 postings later — I’ve never wrote a personal post that involved myself.
I like being the silent voice behind the OBN because I didn’t create this site to shine a light on my outdoor activities. I created it to highlight the many talented Outdoor bloggers out there, so working quietly behind the scenes is exactly where I want to be…
But today I’m going to break in briefly and share a film project that I was involved in called A Deliberate Life. The reason I’m giving it space on the OBN is because I believe the message can resonate with everyone, whether they are a hiker, a hunter, a fisherman, a birdwatcher and so on…
Although the backdrop of this 18 minute video shows us all fly fishing, the message of the film isn’t about fly fishing. It’s about 5 people who have all at one time or another been swallowed up and spit out by the daily grind of work, money and other challenges.
The film is about focusing on what you are passionate about, no matter your current situation…and building your life around that. It’s about filling in the spaces between the struggles of life with something that’s bigger/better/more important than the negatives.
A life focused on a passion is something I believe Outdoorsman in particular tend to strive for because we know the peace and balance the Outdoors brings to our personal lives.
So here’s to your “A Deliberate Life” — may it be surrounded by your loved ones, doing the things you are passionate about and creating positive memories that will outshine the struggles you’ll encounter throughout your life.
And Good Days.
Many of them…
