Place: My Office
Favourite Things: I’m not sure…
G K Chesterton once wrote ‘An adventure is by its nature a thing that comes to us. It is a thing that chooses us, not a thing we choose.’
I so believe that life is an adventure and this quote makes me smile. I am smiling because so often I find myself in places and around things that I would never have chosen for myself.
Is your life an adventure?
If its not, open your eyes to the spontaneous and the creative surrounding you, and unravel a new plotline of deep proportions.
Alice wasn’t looking for Wonderland. Lucy wasn’t looking for the cupboard that led to Narnia. I know these are fairytales, but for me I never dreamed of living the life that I am living, and sometimes it frustrates me, but I choose to see it all as a wild, extravagant adventure. Even when I double book myself, loose my keys and run out of petrol. Life is an adventure, its all about how you see it and what you do with what is thrown at you.
Just had a great catch up with two of my lovely, adorable staff, and I have come away thinking, wow this thing called life is such an adventure. Most of the time we really have no idea what we are doing, but we are trying our darndest to keep the ball in play and not trip over in the process.
Live a life of adventure, its got nothing to do with exotic locations and movie star set, its got everything to do with the everyday randomness of life and how you respond to it.
Going out to coffee tonight, drive a different way, smile at a stranger, pay for someone’s petrol just because you can.
I just did!
Here’s to more laughter, more intimacy, moreÂ beauty, more anticipation.
Here’s to the adventure!
