Adventure is a word that is so often used, but do you know what it means? What does it mean to be adventurous? Does it always have to be jump of an airplane or climb a mountain?
The definition of adventure is something like “engaging in an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity”.
To start, an adventure for one person could not be for another person. For one person trying skydiving for the first time could be an adventure, but for the skydiving instructor that isn´t is just a normal day of work. Each person has a different opinion of what adventure is.
For us, adventure is going out of your comfort zone, open yourself up to the experiences that life gives to you, doing something that you normally wouldn´t do. Adventure is always something that brings you a mix of feelings, fear of the unknown for one side and excitement for the other. Is about seeing the world from a different perspective.
It’s not always about going away to some tropical destination, but about finding excitement in the new and the old. You have to break ground into new territories or experiences you have never done before. Part of the fun of adventures comes from the new, at some point, the more you do something, the less you will actually get out of it.
Anything adventurous needs a little bit of fear. That doesn´t mean overcoming your biggest fears, just a little fear. Advancing into the unknown is scary. It’s exploring where you are and choosing to look at it differently.
Adventure can be found in our everyday lives, in the small things, only you can choose to see it. Could mean try a new meal, try a coffee in a different way or even try a new look. Adventure is about trying out new experiences. Is living your life outside of your comfort zone. Is about taking opportunities and living with passion, enthusiasm and excitement.
