Another Travel Thoughts video that has nothing to do with dogs. (Skip this one, too, if you’re here for the dog content.) I just published a dog related blog post for all my dog folks though – you should be able to find it right below this post!
Since recording this video, learned that there’s a name for what I’m experiencing: post-traumatic bliss, i.e. the ability to “trivialize the trivial,” “stop doing the things [I] do not wish to do,” to “live entirely in the present rather than in the future or the past” (as Irvin D. Yalom would have it). I highly recommend it – it’s made me a happier person.
