More From Biarritz
I think of this diagram (a friend posted it on Facebook but I am not sure where it is from) whenever I am trying to get the nerve up to do something and I really prefer to just sleep in: a long ride, a race, going into a packed restaurant by myself where no one speaks English, etc.
There is some real truth in this simple idea. The best moments of your life almost always occur outside of your little comfort zone.
I stepped out of my zone (I really wanted to just take a nap) and went surfing yesterday in the cold water here in Biarritz. My body was fine and comfortable, but my feet were really cold. I loved every second of it. I'll probably go again today since it is SUNNY again. YAY! I am finally dethawing after a long London winter and my system is being flooded with vitamin D - also YAY!
Anyway, off to enjoy the day and do some German homework down on the beach. I will look back very fondly on this trip when I am sitting back at my desk in my office in June.......
