I consumed hours of YouTube videos, podcasts, and reached out to other authors to absorb teachings on the craft. I felt egoic for writing a story about myself. Who am I to write a memoir?

And at age 27? What do I know? These dual forces, introspection and moving out into the world, in my mind, are so closely intertwined that there is hardly any separation between the two but for purposes of conceptualization. Why am I doing this? To please others? To make my parents proud?

To attract a partner? After further reflection, I believe the reason I kept coming back to this book time and time again was that I needed to heal myself. A large part of me had not yet moved on from the trail. I felt more broken than how I had entered it, and I sought the answers to my life by digging through my past experiences. Surely, there must be something there, I thought.

Thus, a deeply-rooted craving and unfulfilled desire took hold of me. I wanted to understand why it was I hiked the trail, what I had learned, and if anything, could these lessons benefit the lives of others without them having to up and leave to endure the pains of walking for six months? With these desires fueling my engine of self-discovery, once it began turning, I could not stop it.
As most things do, the book finally came to its end three years later. Here I am today, staring at its physical manifestation as it sits quietly on the table before me. What was once the desire to remain hidden has become the desire to share my story with others, and the desire to be seen is now the desire to share my experience to benefit others. With the picture reframed, I feel thrown back into first-grade show-and-tell, but at a slightly older age and a much larger scale, ready to open up and stay vulnerable about all that has unfolded.
This sudden and unexpected shift of perspective was a reminder of how silly it is to project our current experience of reality into the fantasies of a non-existent future. If you decide to read it, I wish that you get something out of it that benefits your life. A final word on the matter: My hope is that you not be distracted by the achievements of hiking trails or writing books.

I invite you to create that space for yourself, to remain quiet, to breathe, and to observe what comes up for you. I hope you join me.
