A hot air balloon ride reminded me that every day, we find there are two opposing forces - good and evil - that make up our lives. We rely on goodness and warmth to keep us afloat during evil and darkness, just like a hot air balloon that floats through the cold atmosphere.
We make stronger, more authentic connections when we share what makes us different – our quirks and idiosyncrasies. Shared interests are fine conversation starters, but if we want to create real, genuine friendships, we need to get weird. Revealing the weird things about us actually makes us more lovable and relatable.
If we’re honest, we'll admit our days are filled with normal routines like eating cereal and sitting in traffic. We often wonder, “is this it?” But do we really have to quit our jobs and travel the world to find a fulfilling, purposeful life? Is it possible to find significance in our daily routines, right here and now?
