“I used to dream about living the adventure, but now I’m bogged down in the swamp of all the petty, piddly stuff I have to do and put up with. But one of these days…”
But what if “one of these days” never comes? Someone has said, “Live each day as if it were your last, and one of these days you’ll be right!”
Does this mean we have to quit our jobs, abandon our routines, or travel to Katmandu to recapture the spirit of adventure?
Not necessarily. G.K. Chesterton suggests that we can find adventure where we are…in our inconveniences.
As he put it:
“An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered.”
In other words, we always have the choice of either being the indentured servant of whatever is happening…or serving the spirit of adventure.
