Someone told me once that, “Life is an adventure.“ I was too young then to understand what it means. Then for the past few years, as my son started to discover the amazing world around him, I started to see for myself what those four letter words truly means.
Everyday, I wake up realizing that every event in my life is in itself an adventure. From the trip to the mall in the middle of a heavy, pouring rain, to my son’s swimming lessons to our recent trip to Moody Gardens in Galveston Island, adventure is everywhere around me. Adventure is happening before our very eyes.
A lot of us may think, “Oh, but it’s just the usual daily stuff, nothing extraordinary like climbing Mt. Everest or having a tour around the world.” My friends, adventure is anything that excites you, made you smile, made you feel happy and alive. Adventure is about exploring, discovering and learning something new. It could be about meeting new friends, venturing into a new diet or exercise regimen. It could be about finding a shopping mall that carries your favorite brand of clothes, bags or shoes. It could be about discovering a new restaurant that makes dishes that delights your taste buds. It could be about having a fun and unforgettable time outdoors enjoying nature, a visit to a theme park, an awesome time fishing with friends and family or simply a relaxing time at the beach. Adventure is anything that makes us want to get up at the start of the day bursting with energy and enthusiasm.
There are so many possibilities for adventures around us. All we need to do is grab the ones that we want. We don’t have to look far either, they are closer than you think.
