Sometimes to find #freedominpleasure you have to break out of your normal.
Even if you're wearing the wrong pants & shoes for a hike.
Even if you're worried that hazelnut latte will go right through you.
Even if warnings about mountain lions mean you loudly & dramatically narrate the entire walk and you REALLY can't lose your voice because you're speaking at Stanford that night.
Because your pleasure is worth it. I know that's not what you've been told, but I promise you it is true.
When you love from a place of pleasure you're stronger, more grounded, & more peaceful. You're a better lover, partner, & friend. Your life gets a bit more wondrous and you, a little less wary.
