Planning new adventures brings you a sense of eagerness to seek out new destinations that have their own eternal unique beauty, as well as their own unique challenges.
The trip that inspired these patterned gym leggings began early one Saturday morning. And though we made designer yoga pants out of the adventure, the trip was far from what we had planned.
Setting out at dawn may seem like a daunting task, but it brings an extra level of excitement to wake up and begin on an unknown path well before most people wake up to their hectic schedules and daily static norms.
Just like the challenges we face daily in life, being on the road brings just as many. Unlike the challenges we may face at work, in relationships, or at home, however, the challenges we experience during an adventure don’t compare to our daily challenges.
When nobody places expectations on you, you begin to see and feel things in a different way; sometimes the biggest roadblocks we encounter in life are the expectations we feel we have to meet. We may feel we have to meet these expectations because others think it is what is best, or because it is what society thinks we should be doing or achieving.
Planning your own path and your own adventure without necessarily satisfying others' expectations automatically brings a priceless feeling of self-accomplishment.Others' expectations and your own expectations are often very different, which can easily lead you down a path that is not your own.
Your life isn't about accomplishing one thing for someone else or checking something off the daily to-do list. Your life is about your individuality, the experiences that fuel your own unique passions, and the wonderful things that fill your soul with happiness.
During this adventure, one wrong turn on the seven-hour drive led to an extra three hours on the road.
This realization contributed to a rush of emotional frustrations from anger for wasting time to a defeated feeling because there wasn't anything that could have been done about it.
In our busy daily lives, we often forget to look at the many hidden positive things that come out of taking a wrong turn, so to speak.
Sometimes a wrong turn in life can take you back a couple steps; however, it can also lead you to beautiful sights of nature and a sense of accomplishment that would not of have been possible if that wrong turn had not happened.
The wrong turn on this adventure led to a beautiful scenic drive through an amazing forest — an area of the state that comes with breathtaking views — which prompted the feeling that the wrong turn placed us on the perfect path, the path we were meant to take. Don't be afraid of taking wrong turns in life — you never know where they might lead you.
The other challenge that comes with being a traveling, adventurous soul, is the unknown, ever-unpredictable factor of weather. Mother Nature keeps you on your toes and makes you appreciate the majestic sunny sky, while never letting you forget how harsh the weather conditions can get in just a blink of an eye.
The conditions upon entering this park went from sunny skies to clouds that began to look ominous. After a full day in the car, this was the last thing we wanted to welcome us.
The initial goal was to capture an image of this magnificent region. However, with clouds that quickly became as thick as a wool blanket covering the peaks, we realized Mother Nature had no intention of clearing up.
This adventure came with some challenges, but it also came with many rewarding feelings that no material thing or person could replace.
Life comes with many inevitable challenges and wrong turns. If we look at these challenges with a clear mindset, they can be seen as steps that direct us to the road we are supposed to take. With the right mindset, we can navigate through life without the fear of making a wrong turn.
With these fun yoga pants, we hope you’ll see all the possibilities this life has to offer. Whether you use them as high-waisted exercise leggings, blue yoga leggings, long workout pants, or leggings for hiking, we hope you’ll feel limitless each time you wear the Elevate full-length leggings. Life, after all, is limitless — wrong turns and all.
