We often live with timelines in our minds. We’re really good at building a narrative for ourselves: “by this age, I want to do have accomplished______.” Maybe it’s a list of mountains to climb, or debt to repay, or a family to grow – we all tuck dreams in the back of our minds. And yet the older we get, the more we realize that life gets in the way. Many of us end up looking in the mirror and asking the scariest of questions: Am I allowed to change my dream? And other questions run parallel: How stuck is too stuck in my ways? What if I’m working towards something but I’ve lost sight of why? What if I can’t articulate what I want? How fortunate am I to ask these questions in the first place?

This special episode in partnership with Subaru gathered 12 adventurous and creative women in the high desert of Marfa to contemplate these questions and to consider how the outdoors plays a role in helping us to navigate crossroads in our lives.

 

Featuring:
