You can’t enjoy the summit if you don’t climb the mountain.
You can’t parachute and stay in the plane.
You can’t enjoy the story if you don’t open the book.
You can’t sing your song if you don’t open your mouth.
You can’t love if you don’t open your heart.
You can’t fly if you don’t spread your wings.
You can’t live the adventure if you don’t take a risk.
Playing it safe is the surest way a boring, humdrum life. Too many of us have unfulfilled dreams packed away deep in our hearts but we are afraid to bring them out and explore them. It’s too frightening to do something extraordinary.
So, rather of taking bold steps of daring faith, we settle for Netflix and video games. Instead creating a great story, we are content with consuming stories of others — watching reruns from the sofa. But we are not really content.
We weren’t created to sit around and watch the world go by. The reason why life often seems unfulfilling is because we have never take the chance to really live.
Maybe it is time to get off the couch, step out in faith, and experience the adventure!
