Daily Mindset

“I would rather die of passion than boredom.” -Vincent Van Gogh

There are times in our lives, whether it be during training, at work, or at home, where we question the choices we’ve made. They tend to arrive shortly after we make an important decision. A form of “buyers remorse”, where we wonder if we’re on the right path.

It is a human condition to seek certainty. We simply want to know we’re clearly on the right path.

But… do we really?

Think back to a moment of uncertainty. The first day we first talked to our significant other. The first time we went on a roller coaster ride. The first time we walked into a CrossFit gym.

Uncertainty makes us feel alive. Those moments are etched into our lives, and are some of our fondest memories. If everything was known, expected, and pre-determined… life would be so horribly boring. It wouldn’t be a life at all.

Where others may run from uncertainty, let’s embrace it for what it is, and create the life of memories we’ll look back on.
