Life Should be an Adventure

Movies are a vehicle for vicarious adventure. We love to sit for an hour or two and experience adventures through our favorite characters. Surely there's nothing wrong with that--or is there? Why should we live vicariously? Why aren't we the ones living the adventure? What is stopping you from doing what you love? Shouldn't we stop sitting around and start doing something about this?

We don't all need to be action heroes, or famous (if that's what you want, go for it) but we can all do something great. It is only our limited expectations that prevent us. We can think of a thousand reasons why we can't do something really, really wonderful but we only need to think of one reason to do it and then pay attention to that!

I don't know about you but I am sorely tired of not doing something great. It is time for me to do something about it. I don't know what it is going to be yet, but it will be something--or many things! I hope you will join me, I am going to have a heck of a time.

I loved this thought. While I see that sometimes it is fun or instructive to watch someone else perform an activity I have always felt that I would rather be doing than watching.

We only get this one life. Make it fun, make it great!
