Life is a RushPosted: July 12, 2010
The windows are down. Your hair is twirling in your face and tangled from the breeze, but you don’t care. In fact, you want it that way.
The soundtrack is blaring. The interstate landmarks are flying by and you’re zoning out, singing along with the lyrics that you’d know in your sleep, the lyrics that so acutely reflect your own thoughts that you may as well have written them for the band yourself.
Your skin is hot and sticky from the sun. There’s no air conditioning, just the wind from the highway.
In a few hours, you’ll be strapped into a metal car, staring out over an entire city, tiny hands clutching at yours as you wait for a latch to open, sending you barreling towards the ground at 70 miles per hour.
These are the moments that make life worth living.
Your life is yours, all yours, and all you have to do is let go and just live.
There are too many adventures to be had and too many things to see.
You have all the courage you need, waiting to be harnessed.
You can get hung up on all the little worries:
Or you can dive in. (Nobody will notice if you’re screaming like a little girl. That’s a promise.)
You can spend your life accumulating stuff:
Or you can hop on board with every single spontaneous adventure you have the chance to take.
And spend your time worrying about where you’re headed and when you’ll get there…
Or you can wake up and smell the barbecue:
Life is pretty sweet.
And that’s just how it should be.
Every hectic, terrifying, glorious minute of it. Now get out there and live it. Enjoy it.
Are you an adrenaline junkie? What makes you feel most “alive”? When is the last time you stepped outside of your comfort zone?
