Everything in life is a trade off. There’s always a compromise. I cannot have a good view of Biscayne Bay and be within walking distance to the beach. Both these luxuries are not obtainable, or at least they are not obtainable at my level of ambition.
Being able to walk to the ocean, swim until my heart is content, use my body to get places, to swim and walk miles, to run and walk miles, is worth more to me than sitting on my arse with a view of Biscayne Bay.
