💭 Thoughts on the article The Looking Glass: The Year of Everyday Risks.

I enjoyed this article’s passion for being alive, I think there’s a lot of similarity to a previous article’s obviousness, and putting ourselves in emotionally challenging positions sometimes.

I plan on taking some every day risks this year & always.

Highlights

Aliveness is a quality of being. Its opposite is dullness.


Aliveness is not just joy, but also its polar opposite, sadness. Aliveness is accepting the risk of both.


Everyday risks are not about the action in of itself; they are about the feeling.


Everyday risks — the small actions that come with a twinge of discomfort.


Aliveness is risk, not comfort.
