Unrestrained Exuberance

Like everyone else, I have been watching the Winter Olympics. And like almost everyone, I was mesmerized watching Shaun White in the halfpipe. It wasn’t just that he was amazing. It wasn’t that he might do the double mctwist 1260, which was also amazing. But it wasn’t just his performance that we all liked. It was his exuberance. That young man is excited and happy and goofy. He doesn’t care. He is simply unrestrained in his exuberance. Granted, he kind of has a right to be, he did just win another gold medal doing something he clearly thinks is fun to do.

So what can the rest of us learn from Shaun’s unrestrained exuberance? Well, that it is not only ok to be exuberant, it is actually attractive. Other people like to see people so happy that they can’t contain themselves. So, don’t worry about looking like a dork. Who the heck cares anyway? Being so happy you can’t contain yourself doesn’t happen that often and when it does, why ruin it for yourself by worrying about what other people think. Take your cue from Shaun White. When the mood strikes you, be exuburant.
