As some of you remember from various drops and hints, I'll be travelling to Antarctica in early February for two weeks on a National Geographic cruise. It's going to be AMAZING. A big part of why I want to go is to see as many penguins as I possibly can, so I figured what better way to theme the challenge leading up to my epic adventure. Let's find some penguins!!!

Excellent article. I especially dig #2 (Embrace Joyful Movement).

Glad you enjoyed it, gents.

 

More joyful movement for everyone (this is something that I am still having a really hard time with actually since movement was such a punishment or chore for so long)!

I was surprised that the author hinted at a very important point but then never came back to it.  In the beginning she said that putting our life on hold until we reach our goal is a waste of time (i.e. we are literally wasting our time now that we could be doing important things while waiting for X).  However, I was a little disappointed that she didn't mention that for the vast majority of people, reaching our goals does not really bring any long term satisfaction.  How many people say I will be satisfied when I reach X, and then on reaching X say, actually I would really be satisfied if I can only get to Y.  And then it's on to Z, ad infinitum.  If we aren't able to find happiness in our current condition, the likelihood that we will find happiness in our "ideal" condition is negligible.

Very good point!
