Sharing my old toots from birdsite.. Maybe I'll delete my birdsite handle soon.

Self abnegation is the key to life's best experiences.

- Want the best meal of your life? Fast.

- Want to deeply enjoy the company of friends and family? Be alone.

- Want to find enjoyment in the simple things in life? Avoid dopamine optimized stimulus.

The only thing in your way..

Is you.

Be willing to be wrong.
Be willing to say something stupid.
Be willing to learn something new.
