Curiosity fuels many of my decisions. Probably too many.

Still, I’d rather kick myself than always wonder “what if?” As I get older, sometimes the gap between “Carpe Diem” and “think before you act” gets a little bigger, and that’s probably for the best. But then there are those days, those seasons that are all about exploring, moving beyond our comfort zones, following that little spark inside that says, “Do it!”

Maybe it’s because it’s fall or maybe it’s because it’s Friday. Maybe it’s because I’ve been feeling inspired and wanderlusty lately. Whatever the reason, this piece from Kerri Smith’s book made my morning! Thanks Laura!

    Love this in the way I love the Buckminster Fuller 'rules'. As a fellow adventurer I often walk the edge between why, and why NOT, with regard to carpe diem/thinking before acting. Your list above reminds me that it's ALL a new frontier, if you approach it that way.

  2. I like to think of myself as an adventurer, and look upon the world and universe not only with great wonder but also with awe. I want to see everything, experience all that I can and hope that in My next life Iwill continue on with an even broader consciousness . Thank you journal for your constant reminder that existence is a wonder as well as an inspiration.
