When we say “adventure” we often think about traveling or trying different sports that seem risky and can give us the right adrenaline kick.
But adventure is a lot more than that. It can be anything that can take you out of your comfort zone. It can be a new opportunity or the courage to start again. Any challenge, any experience that is daring or risky can be considered a new adventure.
While some have kept their adventurous spirit in time, others have lost it. Why? Well, it’s when we’re children that we love adventure the most. That’s when everything is new to us, exciting and worth exploring.
As children, we don’t think too much about consequences and we love a challenge. As adults, we tend to weight every aspect before doing something. And that’s the right thing to do, but sometimes we overthink things and we deny ourselves a lot of experiences that could feed and heal our souls. So today make a promise to yourself that you will do whatever it takes to reignite your adventurous spirit.
Here are 30 adventure quotes to embrace new and exciting experiences:
