Today’s podcast asks whether you’re living an inspiring life, then explains how to do that by choosing the better of the two motivations (hint: I’m not referring to love and fear). You also get a story of walking with young pioneers in disappointingly pleasant weather and you’ll learn a little bit about self actualization.
P.S. one of the “family” groups spent much of their walking time solving riddles, so I made up a brand new one. See how quickly you can figure this out:

I’ll fight you both ways, my arms against yours.
No matter how far you walk, or how fast you run,
We’ll never reach our next destination.

The girl looked surprised, and the fairy flew away, never to be seen again. Well, the girl lived a long, satisfying life, and her…

Love languages is an idea popularized by Gary Chapman’s books that identify five specific ways that people show love, based on what they value.
