“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is rather than as you think it should be”. Wayne Dyer
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) is a great place to be reminded of the truth in Wayne Dyer’s quote. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of a trip to the BWCA, most of the area is wilderness with no running water (unless you count the rivers and waterfalls), no electricity, no roads, no motors, no cell phone coverage, no phone lines, and no wifi. There are parts of the BWCA with some of these modern amenities, but I am talking about the real wilderness area you can only reach by canoe. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth and you have fewer options to avoid things that are less comfortable than the conveniences of modern life.
One of my favorite things about traveling is finding life lessons or being reminded of life lessons, and BWCA offers many opportunities.
