A to Z-Authentic Inspiration: Wild #atozchallenge

I don't know that I have been inspired by another book as much as I was inspired by Wild.  
Cheryl Strayed's story is so unique and real.  I was completely hooked the minute I started reading.  She tells the story in such a real way.  In such a way that it makes you want to go out and hike the PCT the minute you stop reading.  To go on such a journey and find yourself, find everything that you have ever doubted about yourself.

I hope one day to go on a PCT journey.  I am not sure that it will be up to Cheryl's journey level, but it will be epic.  It will be so uniquely mine. 

Sometimes I think that we need to go on an epic journey in order to truly find ourselves, in order to truly find our passions in life.  We get so lost in the list of to-do's that we forget to step back and ask ourselves where we think we should go, what we think we should do?

Sometimes the journey is just about stepping outside of ourselves.  Examining those things which we like to use to compare ourselves with others, and letting go of expectations.

Have you read Wild?  Do you have your own epic journey story?

I don't think I'd ever be inspired to go hiking. Maybe for a walk, but never a hike!
