Which would you rather have, diamonds or adventures? Diamonds are nice, especially all the happy things they sometimes represent. But do they make you feel alive? Do they give you an adrenaline rush? Do they set you on fire?
Stuff is nice but at the end of the day it’s just stuff. Adventures can light you up and will live in your mind forever. Maybe we should focus more on creating a life full of fabulous adventures rather than acquiring more things. Although to be honest it is nice to have a little of both.
Have you thought about what you find adventurous? Anything that gets you out of your comfort zone is an adventure in my book. It could be trying something new or traveling somewhere you have never been before. I’m more of a traveling kind of adventurer. Although I love to do new things too. What kind of adventurer are you?
Here are ten of my top adventure ideas.
Hike into Havasu Falls and spend a week playing there.
Travel to Paris on my own.
Backpack Italy from the top of the country to the bottom.
Learn to scuba dive and snorkel.
Try rock climbing. (I don’t like heights so this one is a challenge.)
Try high altitude climbing.
Learn how to use cool new technology.
Start my own little part time business.
Hike from one side of the Grand Canyon to the other. (I’d want to see how fast I could do it.)
Start trail running! ( I love the mountains and being in the woods. Can you tell I like to be fit and outdoors.)
We all find different ways to give our life meaning. But when you think about you, just you, try to figure out what adventures will mean the most to you. We all have a finite time on this Earth. Make the most of yours.
It’s been said before but when you look back at how you lived it, make sure you are satisfied. Make sure you took the risks and did the things that were most important to you. Take the time to figure out what adventures will hold the most value for you and go out and make them happen.
Be true to yourself. Do it for yourself. Take the time for yourself. Live your life as a series of wonderful adventures. Tell me; what are your fabulous adventure ideas?
Love, peace, happiness and fabulous adventures,
