Life is often filled with routines and schedules. We go to school and work, run errands, do chores, and find time for pleasure and relaxation whenever possible. People often rely on this consistency as it makes us feel settled and full of purpose.
However, every once in a while we need to break out of routine and do something new and adventurous. Maybe we seek out a new, exciting opportunity, or maybe we’re lucky enough to have this opportunity fall in our lap.
Either way, when life gives you a new opportunity, make sure to do something incredible with it. Don’t be afraid to do something you’ve never done before on a vacation. Or put your new hobby or skill to use as much as possible. Or spend time celebrating the amazing people in your life while they’re still around you.
Routine is important, but when we look back we’re not going to remember the commute to work or the chores we completed every day. We’ll remember the unique, exhilarating moments that we took full advantage of in every way.
