On my recent trip to San Diego and Mexico, I took a day to walk through the artist's studios in Balboa Park. This particular scene magnetized me and I soon realized why. The fecundity of the lush plants, the beauty of the open door and flags, the promise of lovely art inside to feast my eyes upon, all inspired the creativity and adventure need in my soul to perk up and bring myself forward.
We all need to expand our horizons and regularly try something new. Routine feels safe and secure and sane, but adventure enlivens us and sparks our creativity. New adventures keep us young, improve our memories and our emotional and psychological flexibility. So the next time you see an opening to adventure, just say YES!
