Life is the Greatest Adventure

"The journey is the reward." - Chinese Proverb

Life is a journey. The road isn't always clear. It's constantly under construction. There are detours and pot holes. There are times where we need to call AAA because our vehicle has broken down beyond repair and we can no longer move forward. It's in those times we learn about grace, humility, and graditude.

Yes, I see life as a great adventure. I see those we love as our fellow adventurers.

This was captured beautifully in "Up"
(Spoiler Alert!)
Yes, it's a cartoon, but if you watch it all the way to the end, it'll provide a little window into this adventurer's heart.
While some adventurers will never settle down -
Ellie and I had the same view on life.
Everyday, no matter how mundane it may seem
is it's own adventure.
"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all." - Ecc. 9:11

  1. I love your outlook on life, sis. It's in the journey, not the destination, that we find our own greatness.
