Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.
Olowatu, Bali. Patang Patang beach…. I envisioned a semi-secluded beach, perfect waves, and delicious weather. Due to circumstances like a wonderful yoga class we couldn’t miss, we got on the road pretty late.
Then we had the chance to stop at a very cool, very modern Luwak coffee plantation.
After two hours of driving, we arrived a little after 4 and by then the beach was packed. Not one to be discouraged by a little bump in the road, I set off to find my secluded beach. Titty made it about 1/3 of the way before establishing her spot. But I wanted that image I had in my mind, so I kept going, crawling over lava rocks and getting squashed by the waves.
And then I was there
Me enjoying some privacy and the ocean.
Although we only had two hourz, it was one of my favorite beach trips of all time. Not only did I get my perfect Bali beach experience, we got to have a Bintang beer with lemon and watch the sunset.
But this saying, “why not go out on a limb”, applies to everything. If you want something worth having you must make the reach. Unhappy with your relationship with your mom? Tell her. You want that promotion? Make it known. You want a deeper relationship? Open yourself up. All good things take a little effort or everyone would have them. Once you start going out on a limb, it becomes a beautiful habit for the most satisfying life.
