I started going for a hike last night. When I reached the bottom of the hill I realized by the time I would get to the top the sun would be setting and I’d have to come back down in the dark. I also really had to pee.
I thought, “Why bother?” Then I thought, “The photo op though.”
“The photo op though” indeed!
I also had some good thoughts at the top of that hill. Some solutions to problems that have been plaguing me. I forget what a lot of them were, but I do recall being happy I went up there.
Our creativity can find some serious juice in decisions we initially resist making. The difficult can lead to the sublime.
And I didn’t have to hold my bladder for too long. Thank you for asking.
