Daily Inspirational Message for April 29, 2013

contemplatingthesurfIf you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
– Jon Krakauer

Lately, life has been trying to take good care of me by dragging me out of my comfort zone and thrusting me naked and shivering into all sorts of exciting/unnerving new situations. Decades ago, I might have labeled the past few months stressful or scary or #$%! crazy, but since then, I’ve learned that when life sends huge waves our way, we have a choice: we can fight them and feel like we’re at risk of drowning, or we can grab our boards, race out into them, and learn to surf. Our course of experience is largely a match to our thoughts, feelings and beliefs: when we adopt a spirit of adventure, all sorts of amazing and wonderful changes rush into our lives.
