Make Your Life an Adventure

We can all get bogged down with work, taking care of family, paying bills, and the other forces of everyday life. As we end the 4th day of the New Year, it's important to remember that life should also be an adventure.

Check out his quote:

A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints. ~ Wilfred Peterson

What routine do you need to break? Is it time for you to shake things up? It's so easy for our days to turn into weeks, and the weeks into months, and months into years doing the same thing day after day.  It has to be a conscious choice to be adventurous. But how can you do that?

They key to keeping adventure in your life is realizing that adventure is relative. For some, it could mean taking a few months to travel around the world, for others, it could mean trying a new food the next time they eat out.  What would it be for you?

The quote above shows that adding adventure to your life can be simple, yet highly impactful.  Picking back up a hobby you've let fall away, making regular appointments to meet up with your friends, or even changing that hairstyle you've had for the past 5 or 10 years could all qualify as an adventure. 

Adding small (or big) adventures to your life gives you energy, excitement and a feeling of being alive - not just living.  Now is the time to take a look at how you can infuse more adventure into your life.
