Adventuring Attitudes

If you wou’d not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worth reading,
or do things worth the writing.
-Benjamin Franklin

Adventuring: Adventure seems like something only from stories and movies, novels, and television.

Most people, I think, don’t realize an adventure while it is happening. Adventure doesn’t happen in real life. Adventures are dreamed up by writers and directors, artists and storytellers to entertain us.

Going to work, or the store, out to dinner, or even to a party with friends and family can feel mundane and usual.

Believing adventure doesn’t happen to the common man is all in your attitude. Attitude determines how we enjoy the experiences we have and the memories we have of them. Sometimes our attitudes cloud our realizations that we may be on an adventure after all.

Maybe with the right attitude we can be the writers and directors, the artists, and the storytellers of our own adventures.
