Life

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
― Jon Krakauer

A Thought For Today

“Here are some simple habits to help make each day an adventure worth having…..
Begin with intention. Wake up in the morning with a clear idea of who you want to become and where you want to be. After all, what we think, we become.
Be compassionate. Every person you encounter is on a journey, just like you. Be gracious, be humble, and be kind to fellow travelers. At the end of the day we are remembered not by what we did for ourselves, but what we did for others.
Be open to adventure.. Be on the lookout for new opportunities and chances to grow. Learn to say yes to what life has to offer, and greet each sunset with satisfaction.
Be kind to yourself. Each day is another chance to grow in wellness. Make time to nurture and develop your special interests and talents, and try not to be so busy that you don’t have time for the things you love.
Be grateful. When the day is over, look back and remember the small things you are thankful for and yes, there is always something to be thankful for. Remember what made you smile, and what made this day unique….”
