Good morning from sunny Greenwood, Maine. I hope that all of you had a great week and have fun things planned for the weekend. Earlier this week I was feeling stuck in a rut, as we all do at times, when a friend reminded me to “go do epic stuff!” This is something we say to each other when it’s time to get outside and go hiking, biking, or paddling. We could say “go do something fun” but “epic fun” sounds infinitely more fun to us. Doing fun things can break you out of a rut and get you moving again. So as the new school year starts if you feel yourself stressed out or stuck in a rut, go do epic stuff!
