My dear,

The lie is that our finest moments come from times when we’re relaxed and at peace of mind.

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.

For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

…But we’ll only know such moments through hindsight, once the unbearableness has passed.

Falsely yours,
Morgan Scott Peck
