On the pursuit of Limitless

Banff
 
 

the product of boredom:

I started this blog at a point in time when I was bored for 80% of my workday.  I used to be heavily immersed in creative activities (writing, dance, and some sketching on the side) when I was younger, and as soon as the academics and professional life picked up, I dropped all of them. 

Unknowingly, my job became my primary identity.

I came back from work one day, realizing that I now had a predictable routine--something I tried to avoid for several years.

Wake up, work, gym, sleep. Repeat. I've always believed that routine is the one-way ticket to Boredom.

Out came the laptop and the credit card, and this blog was born. So why Outdoor Karma? Let's split the title into two.

The Outdoors:

In my free time (i.e. weekends) I flee to the mountains, lakes, oceans....anything that is outdoors. I crave the freedom and  lack of societal supervision out in the wild. Every minuscule problem melts the moment I step foot on the trail. A lot of my reflections are developed during my trips, and subsequently make it on this little online portal.

Karma:

One of my nicknames used to be Karma (it just rhymed well). But it also fit well in what I'm trying to convey through my posts. I am starting to understand how closely connected all of our actions are and the effect a good or bad action can have several links down the chain. I try to make a conscious effort to do as much good (whatever that may mean) as possible.

The Pursuit of Limitless:

Maybe my parents are overachievers, but they decided to bestow upon me a name with a hefty meaning: limitless

I've come to embrace that meaning in my outdoor and personal adventures by constantly seeking situations that make me uncomfortable. I live by the idea that if we fear what we do, we grow.

And grow I shall, for the boundary is limitless.


Read on as I navigate the world beyond the desk and computer and incorporate a heavy dose of creativity back into my life.
