Life is an Experience
While I enjoy a relaxing day at home here and there, I much prefer to get out and find new experiences to take in. While everyone has their own preferences and ways to enjoy their time, I prefer to move with my life and not just watch it pass me by.
It's not always feasible to take trips far and wide, but, as my faithful readers can attest to, I find trips to take that are near my home and can be done in a day. I call them Day Trip Adventures (DTAs) and I've been doing them for years.
I'm not going to get into the logistics of my DTAs, but rather impart why adventures lead to experiences, and experiences lead to broader minds. When you experience something new in a new place - or something new in a familiar place - you're seeing it for the first time. It's not familiar to you and so you learn something new. Learning new things in different places opens you up to other places, peoples, and cultures. These experiences expand your knowledge and your mind and open you up to even bigger and better experiences. They become adventures and you have fun.
Having seen more of the world, no matter how far from home, prepares you for the outside world as well. If you're used to going to new places and seeing new things, going outside your little world of home becomes less daunting and normal. When you do finally travel far and wide, then, it's not as big of a shock and you're completely ready to embrace the experience. You're ready for the adventure.
We had a new adventure this last weekend, having a ton of fun in the process and enjoying the new experience. I'll be sharing that with you this Saturday, but, until then, what's your next adventure? What adventures have you had? Let me know in the comments.
