Sometimes life can be really simple.
I find when I'm living the life that I want, the one I dreamt of as a kid, it's when it's as simple as possible. Fish, work, time with my wife––repeat.
It's when I slack off, sleep in, let little tasks slide, that's when I feel busier than ever. The tide of anxiety starts to turn on me and life starts to overwhelm.
That's when I need to fish.
There are fish in the river near my house. When I get up early and fish, I feel better for the rest of the day. I feel better for the next week.
Sometimes it's that simple.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
