As many of you know I spent part of my time off this summer on a hiking tour of Mont Blanc. It consisted of seven days hiking plus one rest day. We walked approximately 20km a day with sometimes over 2000 metres in elevation changes. Needless to say it was tough.
Last year I hiked Gross Morne in Newfoundland and thought that was tough. This was like hiking Gross Morne every day.
As with any great adventure you stretch your limits and learn a few lessons along the way.
Today I would like to share a few of mine.
So, thank-you friends for joining me on this adventure in person or in spirit. I hope my lessons help you in some way on your journeys as well.
Now I would love to hear from you! What lesson did you resonate with the most, or what lesson of your own do you have to share? Leave a comment below and I’ll be back next week with another edition of Doctor as Teacher Tuesday!

I too felt, all the preparation in the world comment, life can still through you a curveball..I went away and took everything to prevent traveller’s diarrhea and my anxiety, and even though i took 101 supplements, I still got it… i got sooo sad.
“yet I didn’t really feel that different”
You confuse me. You are so accomplished in so many areas of life and I truly admire you.
That was genuinely a fulfilling accomplishment for you but it appears to me that that is how you have faced all of life. You put your head down and drive for the goal.
I base my life on the following statement! ” we as human beings, behave and act, not in accordance with the truth but the truth as we perceive it or believe it to be!”
That statement opened me to understanding other’s but more to the point, it helped me to understand myself!
Well done Dr. Durkin!
Yes, I agree – we each have our own perceptions of what reality is – and sometimes it is our perception that is the only thing holding us back.
