When I was younger, I look back at fun years of playing basketball and sitting in front of a computer wasting time on video games. Those were good times, but I’m also reminded of when I’ve said no to fun. I’ve said no to hiking up a mountain. I’ve said no to beach trips. I’ve said no to going out to clubs to meet new people. I’ve said no to rock gigs I’ve wanted to watch. I’ve said no to almost anything that forced me to get out of my comfort zone. I’ve said no because saying yes meant waking up early.
