Life Is Either A Daring Adventure Or Nothing

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” –Helen Keller

This has been one of my favorite quotes for a while. I asked myself ‘Why?’… I love that adventure is a unique perspective – that everyone’s definition of an adventure is slightly different. Daring is also a loaded word. It’s a bold statement, and very absolute. It’s personal. It reminds me that life is extremely short, and to try new things.

I have the next two weeks off work, so I have decided to create or learn something new every day. I will blog about some days’ creations.

This design is something I’ve had sitting on my desktop, half-finished, since March. The photo was taken at Shark’s Cove, Oahu. Although this photo was taken in March of 2012, this is actually the first spot I ever went snorkeling back in 2007. I remember feeling a little terrified and excited, and since I’m not the world’s best snorkeler I still feel a little bit like that every time I go. It’s an adventure.

What was your last adventure?

  • Well, the last big ones I have done include going backpacking by myself in England May 2011, and driving from England to Normandy (D-Day Beaches) and then to South of France May 2012. I’m trying Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) this Saturday for the first time.
