I have an actual fear of waking up one day, realizing I’m 70 and didn’t do any of the things I thought I would do. Is there a phobia for that? Regretaphobia? I don’t want to live the same year, every year, forever.
I want to experience, play, make mistakes, fail, get up and try again. I want to see things I’ve never seen before. Sometimes I already feel like I am living a perpetual “groundhog” day scenario, where each day is indistinguishable from the last. Except there’s no Bill Murray for comic relief.
When that happens, I know it’s time to get on a plane/train/automobile and get to adventuring. This makes me feel alive. My belief is that we get one strange trip on this beautiful planet, and I want to take advantage of every moment. Even if sometimes those moments are movies and pizza.
My new goal is to have a new experience everyday if I can. It might be as simple as trying a new fruit or more ambitious like seeing a new place. Even if that means I need to go alone. People will tell you shouldn’t because they are afraid of the unknown. I’m more afraid of only every experiencing the known.
Don’t do anything based on fear. Live a life that you are excited to talk about, even if some people won’t understand your need for adventure or be willing to listen to the stories. Contact me, we can talk about it!
