Life is either a great adventure or nothing. ~Helen Keller
I’m grateful for…
The adventures I’ve had in my life, across the world
especially or in my kitchen.
I’m letting go of…
Over planning some vacations. I usually have more fun when I just plan the destination and length of stay, instead of scheduling “Must see” attractions every day.
Adventures don’t need to be grand or expensive. Sometimes it’s as simple as pitching a tent in your backyard, getting everyone dressed as super heroes (yes, including the dogs) and pretending you’re stranded on a planet with no way back to earth as aliens invade it and you’re the only hope to save the human race. Or pretending you’re James Bond and you and your lady friend have to leave a secret message by tagging a tunnel with purple spray paint.
PS… I don’t condone vandalism, but this picture was screaming adventure to me, don’t you think?
Have a wonderful and adventurous day!

Love the super heroes on a strange planet idea… and even more simply, just pitching our tent out back and having a little adventure in our backyard!
We do it all the time (pitching the tent) and there was even a time when it rained so hard in the middle of the night we were shocked it stayed dry in the tent but it made it perfect for those childhood ghost stories that start with… It was a cold and rainy night…
Adventure is the ability to completely embrace life and that is what this sojourn is for. Don’t sleep it away. You are completely right.. When we die, all that we take with us is our soul and the experiences we have had here, so have so adventures! Hugs, Barbara
Staying wide awake and fully aware…Hugs back!
Great post. It frees you as a person to be adventurous in life!
I totally agree!
Lovely post! Our next adventure will be in the Foothills in the small town of Arnold. It is near the Big Trees forest and an hour away from Yosemite! I anticipate a bit of adventure in these places and the Moaning Caves too!
