When your alarm sounded this morning how did you greet the day? Did you choose to be glad, get up, and get going? Or did you choose to hit the snooze a few times and have an attitude of dread? Just for the record I mostly choose to wake up right away but stay in bed for a few moments as I feel my way into happiness and set some intentions for the day.
Every morning that you wake up is like being born again. The past is over. New adventures await. What you do today is what matters most, as the Buddha said.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day and we all have a universal purpose in life. Our purpose is to experience life and sort through the contrast to find our place in the world and become who we really are.
We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong.
Adventure is what happens when you remain open and curious about life and take action according to what feels most exciting in each moment. Your version of adventure is different than mine and that’s how it should be.
What excites you right now?
What have you been wanting to do but neglected because the timing wasn’t right or because you “should” be doing other things? My challenge for you is to follow your excitement and joy today. Have an adventure.
My joy for today was getting back on the hiking trail. It’s been so hot in Arizona, but this morning was cool so I went out for about an hour and it truly felt like being home. Nature welcomed me and had new things to show me. Inspiration whispered in my ear and I witnessed some amazing views of my city. After, I stopped at the Uptown Farmer’s Market to pick up some greens and I found a really cool tea vendor with a Zen kind of vibe who had the most heavenly flavors so I picked up a bag.
This is my kind of spur of the moment adventure. What’s yours? Share below and then of course – go out and actually do it!
