In today’s age, it goes without being said that we are glued to these genius devices we call phones, even though they are capable of much more than that! In one way or another, we have all experienced the guilt of missing out on an experience in front of us because we were looking down at our phones. What if for one day you left your phone behind to experience the great outdoors?
At Texas Boys Outdoors, our mission is to give back to our heroes and show kids the beauty of the great Texas outdoors. We have seen the biggest smiles on the faces of kids and adults who have struggled with illnesses and tragedies beyond our comprehension. To see someone who has been through so much, look up and out into the world and see a much bigger place beyond themselves is truly therapeutic for us and for them.
We have all been through struggling times. Whether it be scraping dollars to get by, mourning over broken relationships, grieving the loss of a loved one, or working in a painful environment- the world is full of struggle, but when you look up and out, you might see something different! Next time you’re nose deep in your phone, feeling anguish and hurt… put it down. Get up, go on a walk, and leave your phone behind. It’s a beautiful thing to be alone with nature and your thoughts. You’ll be surprised to see where your mind can wander when a screen isn’t in front of it! We dare you.
