Chasing Waterfalls 2

Sunday, October 20, 2019



Ithaca, NY is known for its waterfalls. This is the first one we saw. This was the best angle I could get. The fall colors were amazing.
I live with back pain. I have for many years. Walking any distance is painful. My back seizes.
During this trip I pushed myself. I was motivated because I wanted to see and photograph the waterfalls. Most of them involved a short walk.
I had both motivation and determination. I believed I could make it.
My husband had brought a lawn chair along on the trip in case I needed to rest my back. He often asked me if he should carry it as we left the car. Each time I told him, "NO, thank you, I think I can make it.
ANd I did!
Yes, I experienced pain, but I stretched and when necessary, took hubby's arm.
Lesson learned - my attitude can help me overcome obstacles. Saying I think I can, instead of , no I just cannot, paves the way for success.
Going into this trip I was determined to keep a positive attitude and as a result I had a wonderful trip.
