geocaching your way through life.......

the anticipation is what gets you out there
picking your path based on how much time you have to spend.  some days your time is short - you can't go very far. other days you can take your time - you allow yourself the luxury of getting lost in the journey.

 you find you don't even think what obstacles you will encounter along the way. the excitement of what you might find overshadows your fears of possibly not finding anything. 

but you do reach your destination.  you've made a new discovery - about your surroundings perhaps, or about the journey you took to get there. it was thrilling!...this path. you want to leave your mark behind - yet the fear of being forgotten grips you.

you begin to wonder if what you left behind is worth anything.
will anyone want what you offered? 
is it good enough?
was it worth you being here in the first place?

you may never know in this lifetime.  many are never told. 
the lucky ones - they know. 
they were told.
doesn't everyone want to feel like they matter? 

but i'm here to tell you that your treasure will mean something one day. even if you didn't think what you left behind was any good - just know that what you left behind
as insignificant as you think it is
as unimportant as you think you were

you were worth it to someone.
