Where Self-Esteem Comes From

While this is not the case as much anymore now that we live up here on the mountain, if there is a day I fail to get outside for more than a few moments I feel something is missing in my life. If this occurs for several days in the row I begin to feel antsy and will find any excuse in the book to get out and stay out.

I find my 'self' more complete after I have walked, worked or played in nature. While I would prefer the temperature to be moderate so I suffer no discomfort, in reality I am most invigorated after coming in from the more extreme weather conditions. I consider myself fortunate to recognize this aspect of my 'self'.

In his latest piece David Cain touches upon a similar notion. Please join me in reading "Where Self-Esteem Comes From".
