The most beautiful place in Oklahoma is Medicine Park, Oklahoma. I am not looking to debate you, it is just a fact and I am here to prove it. All you have to do is book one of our cabins stay two nights and if you are still in doubt then we will get your eyes checked. Here are my reasons:

  • #1 Mountains – There are mountains in Oklahoma, it is true. Actual un flat ground, the picture below is from a deck at one of our cabin rentals right here in Medicine Park, Oklahoma
  • #2 Cute Downtown – The cutest downtown in middle America is here in Medicine Park, Oklahoma. We obsess over Christmas, in fact Santa is around 365 days a year. The shops, the restaurants if you can find a better downtown, please post a pic in the comments.
  • #3 Lakes – There are more lakes around than I feel is legally permissible but a few hundred yards from one of our cabin Rentals is Lake Lawtonka. I have been on that lake jet skiing and it flat out doesn’t get better.

  • #4 Hiking – We are next to the Wichita Wildlife refuge, you should keep your cellphone away except when you get an opportunity to take a selfie with a buffalo (our lawyers asked me to also say Buffalos are dangerous and you should keep a healthy distance.
  • #5 Attractions – We have a shockingly good acquarium in town. I have been to aquariums everywhere and it is shockingly good.

There you have it, book your cabin now in gorgeous Medicine Park Oklahoma, in one of our cabins and you can thank me later.

When I wake up every morning, I get a lot of stimuli that remind me how needed and important I am. We all wake up like we are the center of the Universe – a Universe of our own imagination.

The fact is I am one of several billions, and over the course of history everything about all of us will be forgotten.

Alexander the Great and his mule driver both died and the same thing happened to both.

Marcus Aurelius

There are over 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars and many of them have other planets.

If you died tomorrow, your close family and friends will miss you terribly but the world would not stop, or be significantly different. I don’t say any of this to make you feel sad but to challenge the voice that has guided you most of your life. The voice of your parents, and the entire world that insists that you are special. What has “specialness” gotten us? We walk around entitled, crumble at any hardship. We go around using words like “I deserve”, buying things we don’t need to impress people we don’t know so that we continue to feel special.

I remind myself every day, that I am a nobody, that Einstein is only a little bit less insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Since the world owes me nothing, and I am a small part of it there is a decided advantage.

How do you embrace this found beauty in being insignificant?

  1. Stop tying your sense of self to your accomplishments. If your identity gets tied up to how much money you make or your title, you will find yourself caught up with the irrational conflicts that is sure to come. One day your bank account or degrees won’t be there to save you, the fall will be steep. The world will remind you that you are insignificant, immunize yourself today, so that day won’t be as painful.
  2. Lean into your smallness. I hike every chance I get, the picture above was from my last hike. I am moving closer to the mountains to hike more because there I am reminded what a nobody I am. I appreciate the beauty, and my insignificance more. Once your ego is out of the way, nature becomes more beautiful, you are more open to real vulnerable feelings, heck you will love like you never have.

I am a nobody, and it is a beautiful thing.

We’re each a negligible part of a vast cosmic entity, and there really is something beautiful about that if you choose to see it for what it is.
