Today is a beautiful day.
My day began with baking a yummy lemon poppyseed cake followed by taking one of my dogs for a run on a local trail.
Now my father and I are driving to our Easter Linner (that’s the later version of brunch…the lunch-dinner) with some family. I’m reading a book that a friend gave me called Flow and a line resonated that I felt like sharing:
The best moments usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult or worthwhile.
I really love the way the author depicts this. In all of my wild adventures or endeavors, many people tell me I’m crazy or ask why I would do *insert experience here* and I don’t believe I’ve ever really given an answer (though I’m sure they’re usually rhetorical questions & statements anyway). I think this is the best way to explain though, because for me and my outlook this is exactly how I see my experiences.
Side note: the subtitle of the book is The Psychology of Optimal Experience :)
I challenge you to do something soon that will prompt people close to you to call you crazy!
Hope you have a wonderful Easter or just a beautiful day :)
p.s. happy birthday KJC!
