It's like the best "drug" you could take. I mean, I don't know a lot about drugs - honestly, wouldn't even know what to do if someone pulled them out in front of me (and admittedly, might not even realize something was a drug in some cases) - but I think the feeling I get when I'm breathing in fresh air is probably the closest thing to a high I will ever experience. And I'm 100% okay with that.
My therapy is getting out and doing something; making my body work. It's the best church I've ever experienced. There is just something about it! I wish I could put my finger on it.
In fact, I wish I could put my finger on it, grab ahold of it, bottle it up, and sell it. It would put Red Bull and all those other companies out of commission for good. It's that good.
I'm a huge fan of being outside, but I think I produced a child that could live outside. And, honestly, in a world where kids spend the majority of their time watching tv, playing video games, and on social media, I'm pretty excited about the fact that "ball" is my child's favorite word.
The only problem is that when it's time to go inside, he pretends to be 2 and throws the tantrum of all tantrums. And when it's raining outside he stands at the door, banging on it, and crying. Poor kid; he just doesn't understand. I suppose it could be worse.
Fact of the matter is breathing in fresh air is important. Not just to our family, but in general. I really feel like one of the reasons we are so happy and focused on the positive.
Do you get outside each day?
