Welcome to your life.

As I stood on top of Mount Laguna, taking in my first sunrise on the Pacific Crest Trail, I had one song stuck in my head: “The Invite” by Pepper (@pepperlive on instagram). I found this song when I desperately needed it, and this sunrise felt like the invite to the rest of my long life. I had heard the lyrics, I’d heard this song performed live/acoustic, and in this moment as the sun peeked over the horizon, I felt the weight of the words in my bones.

For the uninitiated, the lyrics are included below.

Driving back from the bar
Check engine light in my car
This might not be the right plan
Thinking of driving again
Squandered too much time
Locked up inside of my mind
Talked myself out of my dreams
Afraid to fail routine

Take action, make it happen
What are you waiting for
Too much talking, too much knocking
Just kick down the door
Make a move, see the light
Make a move, it’ll be alright

Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Where you can live, if you want to live
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Cause right now, your life is
More than just being alive

I just need to begin
Stuck in my indecision
Some people lost at sea
They look a lot like me
“No risk no reward,” I’m told
Jump now before I get old
This is my new train of thought
Just shit or get off the pot

Think action, make it happen
What are you waiting for
Don’t keep stopping, what you’re wanting
Kick down the fucking door
Now make a move, roll the dice
Make a move, it’ll be alright

Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Where you can live, if you want to live
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Cause this life, this life is
More than just being alive
More than just being alive
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Where you can live, if you want to live
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Cause this life, this life is
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Where you can live, if you want to live
Whoa yeah, welcome to your life
Cause this life, cause this life, this life is
More than just being alive 📸
