Life Is An Adventure!

When I was younger – much younger, in fact – I was very much afraid to try anything new: new food, new undertakings, new people.  Why?

I don’t really know for sure, except what the psychologist or pop culture people tell me, that is: we stay comfortable, in our zone of recognized places and things and people, because they’re…well, comfortable and recognized.

Then I began to realize that life was short and getting shorter all the time.  All those new places to see and visit, those new foods to eat and taste, those new people who might broaden my view of the world were out there just waiting for me to find them.  So I went looking.  Some of them were wonderful.  Some were not.  The places that were not so great I crossed off my list of re-visits.  The foods that I didn’t like the taste of I just decided not to ever eat again.  I must confess that this includes a great assortment of dishes, probably more than I liked a lot, but at least I tried them.  And if I didn’t enjoy the company of certain people, I realized that I didn’t have to spend more time with them in the future.  So it made it easy to keep going forward seeking the tasty food, the interesting places and people.

It’s a good rule to live by: find what you like and then find more of it.  You can’t go wrong.

Life should always be a bit of an adventure.  Otherwise, we just get stale and old too quickly.

Don’t you agree, even a little bit?
