As my life moves on, I realise that I am stuck in the same routine and it’s probably the same routine that everyone is cycling through. Wake. Work. Eat. Sleep. Wake. Work. Eat. Sleep.
What happened to living life to the fullest? What happened to the dreams you dared to dream and the adventures you dared to imagine when you were younger? When you grew up, you were going to travel the world. You were going to take a month out and do something so simple that it’s been almost forgotten: have fun.
Whilst many of us lose the passion for adventure throughout their teenage years, I can say that the passion is not always lost. We want the adventure. But, life get’s in the way of, well, living.
We get into habits of putting our responsibilities ahead of our free time and lose out on the adventure we are entitled to. Restrictions are put in place that thwart our ability to take the day off and leave our phones at home; escape into the forests on a rainy day with a couple of friends.
Responsibilities, danger, commitments. They all get in the way of adventure. We have written off adventure as a thing of the past but it isn’t time to forget it.
Isn’t it about time that we struggle to regain the adventure we want? Isn’t it about time we explored the world and, in return, find ourselves. Away from technology and the from the distractions and conventions of society.
