My Life is Missing Adventure

Helen Keller said, "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."

Many times in the past few years I have thought to myself, “What is my life missing?”

I moved across the country after college for what I assumed was a dream job and I am grateful for what I have, but I am also looking for where the grass is greener. I look back and think, "How did I end up here?"

I “changed my pocket” by paying off all my debt last year, but that wasn’t what was missing. I viewed getting out of debt as the end of a journey instead of just a single stage. After the initial feeling of freedom, life went back to normal.

My mother says that I have “always needed a challenge.” When I was in middle school I couldn’t wait for high school. By the time I was there, I wanted to be in college. Then I wanted to have graduated from there too, and been off in the working world.

I push myself very hard and I’m rarely completely satisfied with where I am at in life. I’m not a perfectionist. I’m simply competitive with myself.

What I have really wanted my whole life, is to see what else is out there.

  • The life of a vagabond, exploring countries for long periods at a time excites me.
  • Being location independent with the freedom of working from anywhere is my dream.
  • Creating a business where I decide what I spend my time on is what I want.

I am ready for the next chapter of my life and for this one to end.

Two months from today I will be getting married. My fiancé and I are already talking about what we want to do and where we want to go after we officially start our lives together.

While she is transitioning into becoming a photographer, I want to become a digital nomad.

I want to visit every country in the world like Chris Guillebeau.

I want to go on an instant adventure like Tyler Tervooreen.

I want to travel the world for $418 like Steve Kamb.

The planning for my life adventure starts today. I’m not sure yet where I’m headed, but just knowing that I’m going soon made me jump out of bed right when my alarm went off. (If you know me well, that NEVER happens, especially on a Monday.)

Is your life an adventure? Or is it in need of some more excitement?
