Take Extravagant Pleasure in Being Alive

Go take extravagant pleasure in being alive. Go for a hike, take a walk in the woods, count the stars, jump off rocks, swim in rivers, do whatever it takes to make you feel alive. A lot of us think about life in the most concrete forms when we should just be enjoying the moment and breathing in the sweet smell of nature.

The pine sap, the fresh blanket of snow, or that heart shaped rock atop the mountain, experience it all. Go on adventures, follow your heart and don’t let anything or anyone hold you back. Take time out of your busy schedule to appreciate the beauty of the land that we call home even if for some it’s only a few months out of the year. Appreciate the opportunities nature presents.

Everything can change in an instant whether it be for the better or worse. Be adventurous and soak up the moments. Fall asleep under an oak tree, bask in the sun atop the highest ledge, photograph nature, float upon the river and let it take you wherever it pleases. Whatever it may be that you choose to do take extravagant pleasure in it.
