Albert Einstein once said, "The only source of knowledge is experience."
That man was onto something.
Reader, I'm going to keep it very short tonight. (I spent a long weekend in Chicago at a bachelorette party at a Cub's game, and I'm still feeling a bit tired from the lack of sleep and the excess of alcohol.) But I'll tell you my takeaway from the week: life has more meaning when get out in the world. Every bit of fresh air we breathe, every bit of sweat on our brow, every time we step outside of our comfort zone--we come away with a little more knowledge about ourselves and the way we interact with our surroundings. As much as I'm not a Cubs fan, I'm glad for the experience. (If for no other reason than it helped me to remember how much I love a good sunset, and to learn how much I don't enjoy Wrigleyville.)
I hope you're making enough time to experience life this week, too. I'll see you next Monday. -Em
