04 Jan Things That Matter: Exploring
I want to explore the subject of exploring for a minute, because it’s not something everybody gets to do.
“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Many of us seek adventure and yearn for experiences that we’ve only heard about. Like, eating fresh spaghetti and calamari tossed with sun-dried tomatoes at La Gensola in Italy, Rome. Or, sea kayaking in Scotland. Road tripping coast to coast across the United States. The point is–whether you want to admit it or not, adventure lives inside all of us. And the reality is that far too many of us will never have these experiences.
If you are one of the lucky ones who gets to explore these fabulous places and cities, than you should not take it for granted. It’s too easy to let wealth spoil you–and once you’re spoiled, well, it’s just not enjoyable for anyone. You should be humble, thankful, respectful, and insightful.
