Default Flying R/C planes is crucial to your self-actualization

From Huffington Post

When you're engaged in activities of "personal expressiveness," ones that are self-chosen and that reflect intrinsic goals, you're operating from the "true self."

This leads to optimal psychological functioning (i.e., happiness). We're talking about something far from tangential to your existence. Play scholar John Neulinger called passionate play pursuits none other than the "central life interest."
I'll have to tell my wife that flying my planes is important for my "optimal psychological functioning."

Thumbs up

That is a great article and I couldn't agree more with it. Nothing like losing ones self in something you enjoy and freeing yourself from the worries of life.

We are all going to live longer by being happier no wonder there are so many 80 year olds at the club I belong to. They are having so much fun they forgot to grow up, and grow old.
