If a trip is a journey and a journey contains adventure, then the journey of life should be full of adventure mixed with the necessary routines and responsibilities of our everyday existence.Rebecca Kojetin
Welcome to this journey I call life.
Several (OK, almost 15) years ago, I worked with a gentleman who declared on his birthday that he was about to embark on his 55th trip around the sun. He was truly looking forward to this excursion and everything the year might hold for him.
Over the years, 63 of them to be exact, I’ve watched people either just exist or live life to the fullest.
- Those who are just existing seem to be content with just continuing their day-to-day routine and vegging out on digital games or the television. Many talk about wanting and waiting for their life to change, but they rarely take charge of their life. They rarely make choices that will truly make a difference in their life.
- On the other hand, there are those people who LIVE life. They actively make choices that help them create a better self every day. They are open to new experiences and learning new things. They are open to meeting new people and going to new places.
Life is a journey we are all taking.
There are two ways you can take the journey through life: You can choose to “sit and sleep” with little to no interaction and let life pass you by as you maintain an existence. OR You can grab the railing of the roller coaster car of life and journey actively and purposely through life – living life.
It’s your choice. It’s always your choice.
I’d like to help you live your life on that crazy, chaotic roller coaster with its twists and turns, its corkscrews and loop-de-loops, and its rises and falls.
Within the digital space of this site, I talk about becoming your best, self-care, home & family, relationships, travel, and creative outlets.
