Sitting with what is

This past weekend we went camping in the Adirondacks. We took our first long hike with our four month old child. As we hiked and hiked and hiked I couldn't help but notice a deep angst growing inside of me created by the wanting to know how much longer there was until the peak. This happens to me everytime I hike. I anticipate the event, and once on the trail I find myself thinking about how long until the end of the hike, whether it will it feel shorter on the way down. This is a trend in my life, so as I hiked this time I used the opportunity to reflect on all the times in my life where instead of being present in the now, I got stuck in the anxiety of wanting to know what would come next.
