DTD #43: You're on Your Path. Enjoy Every Second of It

We don’t know what we’re doing, but we’re having a hell of a lot of fun along the way.

Join us for a comical dialogue on philosophy, vulnerability, love, and the modern dating culture. We include personal strategies on how we plan for the future while staying fully in the present. We ask some big questions and, as always, act as if we have the answers.

Much of this conversation revolves around the following quote by Aubrey Marcus:

“I spent so much of my life worried about what I was going to become, and whether I was going to be right here right now. God, how much time did I waste afraid that I wasn’t going to be right here right now? If I could change, the only thing I’d change about my whole life would be fearing less that I weren’t going to get here, the place that I was going anyway. I wouldn’t change all the mistakes and mishaps, I needed those, but all the constant worry that I wasn’t going to make it that took me out of the moment. It took me out of enjoying the experiences, smiling or eating my lunch or doing whatever I was doing. Know your mission, have faith you’re going to get there, wherever you go, it’s going to be alright. Just find ways to get out of your head.”

Tune in to learn how we attempt to let go of the stress in life to enjoy the twists and turns of this beautiful journey.
