Confidence Booster Series: Adventure
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
This week’s focus is to experience adventure. There is nothing like adopting an adventurous spirit to boost your mood and confidence. It can be so easy to get swept up in the mundane details of daily life. When we no longer feel inspired to seize the opportunities to live life to the fullest, it’s time to spice things up a bit.
I am very fortunate to have recently taken a trip Italy. There is nothing like the beautiful Italian culture, history and surroundings to encourage rich new experiences. The above photo was taken in Sorrento with the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea as the backdrop. The Italian lifestyle is one that I am very inspired by. Everywhere I traveled, the people were welcoming and appeared to be genuinely enjoying life and each other. Witnessing them drive was an adventure in itself!
I don’t believe we need to take a big excursion, like the one I just had, in order to enjoy an adventure. New experiences can be initiated from wherever we are. An open adventurous attitude can serve as a powerful way to avoid getting bogged down and can help prevent losing sight of what is important in our lives. When we live with a thirst to truly experience the moments in our day, whether that’s in our workplace at home or out in the world, it becomes very natural to feel good about ourselves.
So, this week try adding a little adventure to each day, whether in your attitude, your actions or both. You could even identify a wish list of some of the bigger adventures you’ve always wanted to enjoy, and look at steps you can begin taking now to make them happen. Have a great week and live BIG!
