Today was a great day.
Today, something happened that changed my life. I won’t go into the details, so don’t ask. But as I was sitting on my front porch this afternoon, I had a profound realization:
Right now, even though I have some unfinished commitments, right at this moment, I feel no external pressure. For the first time in a long time – I can’t even remember when – I feel like I have 100% complete, total choice over what I do right now, tonight, tomorrow, etc. I’ve known that for a long time intellectually, but now I truly feel it.
I have things I want to do. I have commitments I want to keep. But I have nothing that I feel like I have to do, as soon as possible, or my life might just collapse around me.
That’s a powerful place to be. I plan to stay in this place. I feel better than I’ve felt in years (and that’s saying something, ‘cause I’m generally a pretty happy guy). And it is my most sincere wish that everyone in the world could find their way to this place and live every day like this.
