I walked into a sporting goods store the other day and saw this poster. It stopped me in my tracks. Not because of the picture – my idea of camping is spending the night at my friend’s house instead of in my own bed. But the words “Never Stop Exploring” really hit a chord with me.
What a great concept! Can you imagine waking up every morning with the attitude that every day is an adventure and something to be discovered, explored and experienced.
The good, the bad and the ugly. No matter what is waiting for you. Reach out to taste it, feel it, and learn from it. I wonder if this would have made a difference when I was going through a really dark time in my life. I wonder if it would have made it easier to get up and look for that new job, search for a new home or sit across that desk from the bankruptcy judge. I wonder if thinking of the day as a new adventure, no matter what it was, would have made that journey of my life a little easier.
I’ll never know, but you can be sure that there are more challenges yet to come. Life is a roller coaster and you never know what’s around the next curve. So all we can do is hold on tight and
NEVER STOP EXPLORING
