When did life get so stressful? Remember when all that mattered was getting your play on? Whatever it was, two story fort building, trampoline flips, mastering the perfect lean so your downhill boots held you up the whole way down the mountain.
Now we have things like responsibility, commitments. Classes we need to pass, money we need to make, careers we need to jump start. But, are we forgetting the most important part of this whole thing? Enjoy the process. Enjoy the journey. Why put so much emphasis on things in our lives that give us so much worry, anxiety, and put serious strain on our state of happiness?
Sure there are things that we just have to do. Suck it up, and just bang it out. But, when it comes down to it, our lives shouldn’t be centered around these things and if they are, we’re doing something wrong. They should be centered around what we love to do, what our passion is, what fires us up, what gets us stoked, what makes us smile, what makes us laugh. Climb, Run, Ski, Kayak, Bike, Travel, Photograph, Adventure, Paint, Write, Bake, Play.
Whatever it is… IT should be a priority and all that energy we manifest in fretting, worry and tenseness should be put towards stoking the fire. So, hello, ditch the stress, smile and go tear it up, because in the end it’s all that really matters.
