Living an Inspired Life

Tuesday October 22, 2013 #569

 

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
 Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

a daring adventure

 

~Helen Keller

 

Are you living a life you would be inspired by if it were someone else’s?  Before you answer “no”, be sure to take a moment to reflect on the many inspiring things you do daily:  helping someone with a small need, providing a smile to your loved ones and co-workers, and the thousands of other small gestures that make a difference.

 

Now, the challenge:  Are you living life safe or are you treating life like the adventure it is?  Taking reasonable risks, trying new experiences, meeting new people, learning new skills, stretching yourself?  If you realize upon reflection that you’ve been avoiding life’s richness, do something about it!  Write down 3 things you would do if pressed to “try” something you’ve avoided for whatever reason. 

 

There is no real security.  And, going for that bit of adventure won’t kill you.  Go for it now!
