Go on. I’ll wait.
In the past five years, I’ve steadily been more and more compelled to live for today. Craving and capturing each moment.
I’m too busy.
I hear this All. The. Time.
I said it too. A lot.
You’re not too busy. You just haven’t made today your priority.
Even as I type this I have a deep seed within my stomach urging me to find my next adventure. I know what it is but it is scary. It. Is. BIG.
Before I indulge in telling you exactly what it is, I want you to read this book. NOW. It’ll take two damn days. And no, you are not too busy.
You will realize “someday” doesn’t exist.
My boss gave me this book. Probably because he hears my constant want for adventure and new ways to challenge myself.
An adventure doesn’t have to be big. It can be a challenge to visit a local park you always drive past and say “someday I should bring the kids there”.
Everyone thought I was crazy to visit a third world, poor country by my damn self. Aren’t you afraid? Aren’t you going to be lonely? I am neither.
How can I be? Look at this view?!
That’s a freakin active volcano!
I’ve gone ziplining through the rainforest whizzing by sloths and monkeys shrieking at my laughter!
I’ve rappelled down a waterfall! Frightened and exhilarated!
“But I can’t afford that”. Your adventure doesn’t have to be traveling far and wide but it can be. If you wait till you feel you have enough money, you’ll be six feet under having done none of what you said will happen “someday”.
PLANNING. All it takes is planning and the drive to want it today instead of “someday”.
Traveling doesn’t have to break the bank. Your adventure can happen near and far. You just have to want it bad enough.
What’s your adventure?
Whether it’s learning to ride a unicycle or traveling solo to a foreign country.
The only day you have is today. Passionately own it NOW.
It’s time for breakfast and then off to conquer the rains along my beach walk. It’s my last day in Costa Rica.
Pura Vida! – the pure life.
