Life is a lot like travel.
The best experiences happen when we step away from the pre-planned itineraries. It’s pretty healthy to have a consistent routine but sometimes we all just need to step outside the box a little. If all we ever do is participate in experiences that are spoon-fed to us, life will begin to stink. It will grow routine and monotonous. It’s this type of living that leads to negative emotions. Life is an adventure…live it!
You see, life is a lot more exciting when we are willing to be just a bit daring and put ourselves out there. Approach life as a perpetual adventure and treat each day as something you must experience to get to that next level. When we do this, we feel prosperous and fulfilled. Life becomes intriguing and something we look forward to each and every day. Even someone working a typical 9-5 job can find life to be incredibly fun and fascinating if they simply approach it as an adventure with the main mission being to live.
But we can’t meander through this adventure on our own. In fact, the greatest part of the adventure is allowing others to get to know you and join you on your life’s quest. The fun part of it is when you develop relationships, your respective life’s quest end up meshing and becoming even more complex. I know my life is much more amplified as a result of my husband, family, and friends. All we have to do is be willing to speak to others and open the potential for great communication…that’s when life really gets interesting.
But don’t be miserable.
Alternatively, we can live a virtual life only interacting with people through a keyboard and never really allowing any risks into our life. But this can lead to misery, depression, gluttony and more. We allow ourselves to stay lost in a fictional world behind the bindings of a book…or we can simply never leave our homes. Where’s the fun in that? The most important thing to remember is that happiness is our own responsibility. A place, other people, your pets…nothing else is responsible for trying to make you happy. If we want life to be exciting and adventurous then we need to change our outlook and take action to make it happen.
The key to all of this is positive action. In essence, it is the cure for feeling down. Our actions immediately produce results and, just like many medicines, positive actions must build up in our spiritual system to help us always be optimistic. Through this type of outlook and action, we not only create a better self, we create a better world.
