This is quite some time, when you think about it.
I keep hearing people (including myself) saying “time flies”. Well, the more time passes, the more I am convinced that one should reach out of his/her comfort zone to find happiness and satisfaction in life.
Another way of looking at experiences is perfectly summed up by this quote, apparently from a mysterious Canadian writer
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.”
I have been fortunate enough to grow up with loving parents who were open and financially comfortable enough to let me experience different activities: a jack of all trades from the youngest age, keen to try new sports and activities, the latest fad, as soon as they appeared as a possibility… (Later in life, I realized the flip side of this is the proneness to getting bored easily, and to not being a very persistent person, but I have worked on it and it is another story…)
It does not have to be bold or crazy or unique each time, it probably can’t be, but I believe it should expose me to additional serendipity, bring about more awareness of my own interests, and help root those sparkling memory markers deep inside my brain, and slow down time.
