„If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured, it may never arrive. Mountains will not be climbed, races won, or lasting happiness achieved.“ – Maurice Chevalier
On rainy days I often find myself daydreaming about thinks I could do or places I could visit. However often it stayed a wish. But not so lately, as I was implementing these three tips. And hell yes – having a life filled with adventure doesn’t have to be expensive or a once in a year thing. There are plenty of ways we can incorporate adventures into our lives! Whether it be last minute deals, saying yes to a date, or moving to a new place. Life is meant to be enjoyed and fully lived. Here are some ways you can have more adventures.
It’s not always practical to take a nine hour flight to some crazy destination. Long haul trips are more expensive and harder to coordinate with life if you work full time. When traveling in your own country domestic you might be surprised at the new things you discover about familiar places or how lucky you are to be surrounded by such beautiful places. The past few weeks I’ve been exploring more of my home country and found so much inspiration not only through Instagram but just by driving somewhere and see what that place had to offer. You never know what you could be missing.
Start saying “yes” more
Saying “yes” is a simple tactic that can bring you so many adventures. Your friends ask you out? Say yes! See a new activity you’d been thinking of doing? Say yes! It’s easy to let ourselves fall into a routine that’s all too cozy, but sometimes we need to push ourselves out of our comfort zones. You never know where it might take you. And usually looking back you will be so happy you DID!
Stop waiting for summer, for a partner or until you’re ready. It’s easy to push off the big moments in our life, even the little ones. Waiting for something like the perfect moment is anything but adventurous. It’s a hard habit to break but it is so worth it! Because the perfect moment will never come. So why not just taking the decision and gogogo!
