For those of you who know me you know that I have an ongoing challenge of consuming a single tube of Burts bees from beginning to end. It seems silly because it is. But it's one of those things in your life, a personal challenge, that just makes things more interesting.
I was well on my way, close to using a full tube of Burts bees lip balm, I think I was at the halfway point. However, an unexpected dip in the Columbia River while I was trying to paddleboard with the Burts bees in my pocket unfortunately ended my streak.
It's one of life's many lessons. To be able to absorb tragedy and setbacks of any size and still have the gumption to keep going on.
