Live adventurously

               The saddest thing is not a life cut short

                       but a life not lived

What does living adventurously look like? Maybe we feel that we are past living adventurously. Maybe we feel we have already lived our whole lives adventurously enough so far.

 I guess to really live adventurously is to allow every aspect of your life to be open to new experiences, new directions and to recognize that feeling fearful or nervous from time to time is probably a good thing. Living adventurously never ends for those who have befriended their mortality.

 Practice. Although some adventures are accidental, the best are those desired and prepared for. What would you like to experience? Plan it and make it happen.

 Face up to life, knowing that you can make a difference in this world regardless of your circumstances. Use those adventurous experiences to help and inspire others.

Don’t confuse living adventurously with living dangerously. For some people living dangerously is the right choice. This can lead to adventure,

but adventure should not always lead to danger.

Open the door to new experiences. Explore the world and your own back yard. There are wonders to be found.

 Don’t be afraid of new ideas, theories and philosophies. Study them and learn how to apply them to your life.

 Be curious and experiment, test new ways of thinking. Open your mind to other ideas.

 Be flexible to change. The world and your life will change daily, so learn to adjust and adapt.

 Avoid a life of ease and safety, have the courage to take on difficult challenges. Support those people you have faith in, not just in belief but with your actions.

Break the chain of routine, make new friends, travel, take up new hobbies and learn new viewpoints.

Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone. Be prepared to take chances that come your way or that you actively seek out. You only live once.

Let this be the most valuable lesson that death teaches us

Keep your heart young by keeping your dreams alive. NEVER allow them to die, EVER.
