Think of an adventure that you might like to take. Maybe it is a trip to a foreign country or something a little closer to home. Maybe it is to climb a mountain or float down a river. Have you ever thought how maybe your own day-to-day life can become an adventure?

When we set out on an adventure, we are usually looking for something new. We are looking to break out of the boring normal and get to somewhere we have never been before. What about in life? Are you constantly looking for something new to experience? Take some time soon to experience something new. That will put some adventure in your life!

We usually pick something larger than life for our adventures, something grand. Do you think anybody would go to see the Tiny Canyon? No way. But hundreds of thousands of people adventure their way to the Grand Canyon. What about your life? Is there anything grand that you are pursuing? Is there anything bigger than life that you are striving for? Take some time soon to pursue something grand. That will put some adventure in your life!

Lots of people take adventures to learn about something. This makes Washington, DC a popular adventure spot will all of its history. You can spend days there! Your eyes and mind are always being opened and it is enjoyable. What about your life? Are you involved in anything that causes you to continually learn and grow intellectually? Take some time to stretch yourself to learn something. That will put some adventure in your life!

Part of a vacation adventure is that you can be diverted and it is okay! That is part of the fun. Yes, we want a clear destination but sometimes it is the diversions that bring us the spice of life. What about you? Are you diversion averse? Maybe you need to let yourself get out of the box sometime. The next time you have the possibility for a fun diversion, take it. Life is short and you can take some diversions. That will put some adventure in your life!
