Do you know what you truly want? It’s been exactly 1 year since this picture was taken. Not sure what snapped inside me but everything has changed since then. I was invited to be on a houseboat for the first time in my life this particular day with some incredible people. I needed them in my life exactly at that time and the lessons I learned from them have been eye opening and inspiring. I went to Arizona all alone and decided to see some of the sights while I was there. I asked a stranger to take this picture of me. It seems like a lifetime ago but it’s a very cherished memory. I’ve had major changes in my life since this picture was taken. More than any other time in my life. Good and bad changes but a lot of good. I’ve definitely slipped a little in my drive and my focus but I’m not sure that’s bad. I need to try and get back on my game in some areas. I’ve explored the world and been lost by design.
In the process though my health has suffered, my friendships have suffered, my finances have suffered, and my mental health has suffered as well. I make no secrets about that part of me. I’m an open book. And my book is literally an open book about that part of me. I’ve seen so many new things and been to so many places this year that I have always wanted to go. My bucket list has become my focus. Maybe always being lost is the correct path for me. One thing I lost was not knowing what I want anymore.
I used to think I knew what I wanted. Or I convinced myself that’s what I was supposed to want based on outside circumstances and influences. I spent all my time trying to reach goals not for me but for others. I used to have lists of goals and wishes. Now I spend my time trying to live a life I’m proud of. A life I designed. A life that I am in control of. I need to figure out what Eric really wants. #whynottoday #ericdodge #lost #wanderlust #horseshoebend #lakepowell #coloradoriver
Если вы про сумасшедших туристов-то это про нас 👀💃🏻
Искупаться в реке Колорадо - ✔️🏞
Попробовали бы , когда на улице 50’ по Цельсию, а вода около 5’? 💦🤪
Свело ноги до судорог, вызвали все взгляды туристов, споткнулись об огромнейшие камни под рекой и упали пару раз, далее обожглись об горячий песок 😲😴
A rare sighting: me! Well, sorta... (I posted the unedited version earlier. Whoops!)
Finally got with the times and bought a new phone🕺🏼...”portrait mode” is cool beans🧙🏻♂️
with a hopper hungry brown on our float down the Colorado today 👆
Siempre pienso en un lugar favorito de cada viaje. Imposible decidir esta vez. Eso sí, Horseshoe Bend está, sin duda, entre los más 🔝.
It’s hard to grasp just how deep and wide Grand Canyon is because most places it’s impossible to even see the bottom while you stand on top!
Ay, Arizona... 💙🔛🇺🇸 • Horseshoe Bend •

My last day in RMNP was spent walking down a trail for a half mile, sitting by the river, and reading and thinking. It was quiet and I had no cell service, so I couldn’t be distracted. I wanted to stay there forever. #rmnp #rockies #coloradoriver #colorado #nationalpark
Wakesurf, watch, repeat 🌊🌞
