I’ve got my Bengal Spice morning tea beside me, breakfast in the microwave, and a serious bone to pick with the idea of life as adventure. So let’s dive into some #realtalk about life while I politely disagree with Helen Keller who said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Every day life is no adventure. An adventure is something unusual. There’s nothing unusual about the day-to-day journey of living. Everyone has a grind. Everyone has bad days. Everyone has boring, same-old same-old days. That’s not adventure. That’s reality.
Thing is, reality doesn’t have to suck just because it’s similar day to day. Life can be good most days, even within the grind. And yes, life can even include adventure, minor or grand. Just don’t make the mistake of expecting adventure every day.
