You learn the most about yourself when you are out of your comfort zone. When you flood your senses with new sights, sounds and smells of a new place or tastes and textures of new foods. When your mind is unravelled by a new perspective from a great book or a lecture. When you challenge yourself physically to new limits of endurance or strength you thought impossible.
Go until you find your body producing that wicked cocktail of natural chemicals from nerves, fear, or excitement.
The moments when you have no point of reference, no experience, and no context to guide you. These are the moments that force us to be completely present. Your whole world opens up magnificently when you’re present, in the moment, in the unfamiliar.
Modern Recreation is taking the left, instead of your usual right.
Putting yourself out there in the most vulnerable way, open to failure, open to experience. Never taking yourself too seriously and never taking the easy approach.
