Life is an adventure, or nothing at all!

Life is only one. In order to make the best out of it, we should live it to the fullest and make an adventure of it, for what is life without the challenges and the accomplishments?

Life is an adventure.

Helen Keller once said: Life is an adventure or nothing. She was so right with these thoughts. Often time’s people just let life pass them by without doing much about it and in return they get nothing. When they reach their golden years and they look back at their life and realize what little they have accomplished and what little they will leave behind as a legacy, they feel cheated and let down. They feel as if their life was worthless and for nothing.

Life is One.

But life is not meant to be like that. Life is one and a unique opportunity at that. We should live life to the fullest, take every chance, every opportunity we are given and when there are none, we should make our own and live life. There is nothing keeping us from living life other than our own self-doubts and self-imposed obstacles. Even those with a disability can find joy in life and make an adventure out of it, so why can’t the rest of us do so?

Where There is a will, There is a way.

Where there is a will there is always a way. If we want to accomplish something then we can surely make it. By putting effort and hard work in to our dreams and goals, they can become a reality and life will turn in to the adventure we had wanted it to be. This way, when we are in our golden years, we will not feel like our life was wasted, like we let our better years pass us by without accomplishing anything. On the contrary, we will feel like we had a good life, a fully lived life and one very worth living over and over again.

Make it Happen!

Therefore, the next time you feel like your life is feeling like nothing and you wish a little more challenge and adventure, remember that if we set our mind to it, we can make things happen. We can be our worse enemy, but also our best motivators too. Let’s not allow life challenges and our own doubts to get the best of us. Let’s make our life a true adventure worth living!

This was wonderful and right on the mark. My wife and I are retired now and we don’t have much beyond our love for one another and our family, but looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing as it took everything to get to this wonderful place. Tomorrow we will teach Sunday school together to ten year olds and then we will walk home with a smile on our faces…Truly a wonderful read Genki and a star…Dosen’t get much brighter than this.

Uplifting post, thanks GenkiWorld. Our attitude decides our altitude and, more importantly, our happiness. I have never regretted the few difficult turns in my life as they taught me much - siva

Life is really an adventure and so much depends on what we make of it.

Good GenkiWorld, children begin their adventure when they are small. But, it is never too late to begin.
I am planning to take up paragliding.

Life certainly is meant to be lived fully. There are many opportunities to find ways to enjoy each day in some small way.
