Sometimes You Just Need An Adventure

7 Keys To Living An Adventure Filled Life

1. Get out and travel.

Travel is one of the first types of adventure that comes to mind.

And when I say travel, sure, leave your comfort zone, but know you don't necessarily have to spend thousands of dollars traveling overseas to other continents and whole different nations.

Traveling can be as easy as getting on your bike and picking a path, or throwing on a pack and backpacking through your state. Get out there and live the adventure filled life of your dreams!

It isn't going to happen on it's own.

2. Be spontaneous.

Don't let me tell you not to make plans, but be spontaneous sometimes too.

Take cool opportunities, even if they might inconvenience some plans or routines you already have. There's nothing wrong with saying "yes!" to life.

3. Enjoy the awesome aspects of your life.

Sometimes we get so caught up thinking about the future and about the things that we would like to be doing that we forget to consider how great our lives are already.

Take stock of the awesome aspects of your life and don't leave them behind in your rush to the next thing.

4. Be an authentic person.

You just do you. Be yourself and you'll attract the right people who will help you discover your true potential and find awesome possibilities.

5. Keep people in your life who empower you.

Those "right" people I was talking about have the potential to empower you beyond what you thought.

Keep them near you and definitely keep them in your life. They'll help you go far.

6. Don't let toxic people in.

Sometimes we encounter people opposite of the types we talked about it #4 and #5. Sometimes we find ourselves with terrible, toxic people in our lives.

Sometimes we let them in romantically, sometimes as family members, and sometimes as friends. In any case, if you've already let them in, show them the door.

7. Always look for the best in everything.

Life is pretty awesome, after all.

Crowd Damage On Black Friday Shows The Horrifying Side Of Consumption

It's almost that time of year again. Right before the holiday festivities and the season of gift-giving, most stores capitalize on the season by offering their biggest discounts of the year for a day. It is estimated that the average Black Friday shopper will spend $358 that day making it the most popular shopping day.

In fact, in 2020 the total amount of sales was estimated to reach $11 Billion both from growing online sales and from the never-ending lines from the shoppers who still make the trip to stores in person. Black Friday also has a dark side... the bigger the crowd the higher the risk of fights, pushing, shoving, and trampling, not to mention the messes that retail workers have to then deal with...See for yourself.

Rules No Longer Apply

It's like suddenly the rules of society, politeness, and consideration for others go out the window on Black Friday. No one thinks of the retail workers who can't keep up with the piling messes made by grown adults who suddenly have no issue throwing items off the aisle in their hurry to find the best deals.

It's like adults revert back to a childlike state where only what they want matters and they'll throw a tantrum if they have to to get the item that they want.

Time Is Completely Wasted

Is there really a material item that is worth leaving the blessing of a warm bed in a sheltered home to spend the night on the hard ground in a tent just to be the first in line for some deal.

First of all that can't be comfortable. Second, what does it say about how a person values their time? Time is so precious and every moment in it counts. Do we want to spend it bettering ourselves or camped on the cold hard ground just to buy more stuff to distract ourselves with?

Patience Is Put To The Test

These people are in line for a 40-inch tv for 150 bucks. For the time being, they're doing it in an orderly manner, keeping in mind that some parents brought their toddlers along.

That's not always the case, however. Between 2006 and 2018, 44 Black Friday incidents were reported in America leaving 11 dead and 109 injured. The stories of these injuries can be quite horrifying such as the story of a man who shattered his hip after getting shoved into a shelf of cut-rate presents.

Going Backwards In Time

When you think about it, when we subject ourselves to prioritizing a big discount over our own morals and respect for one another, it's like we go back to a more primitive way of being.

We go back in time to when rules and laws that kept safety and respect weren't yet in place. While rules aren't perfect, they're meant to keep order and protect rights and freedoms. Maybe more regulation is required to make sure crowds no longer push and trample each other.

The Deals Aren't Even That Good

This Black Friday sale didn't do a good job of hiding their price increase. It makes you question, is it really all worth it? Granted, for some families the only way they can afford higher-end luxury is on days like this when prices are reduced.

The issue for a lot of the deals is the price reduction is only an illusion. It might be worth doing some research first and weighing out the risk and worth of venturing out.

Take It With A Grain Of Salt

"My favorite black Friday moment was the husband who stationed himself at the pile of jeans and found people the size they were looking for. When I asked him if he worked there he replied 'my wife made me come along, I might as well be useful.'

Then he tipped his coffee mug at me and said "I also added whiskey, that helps" with a smile." - gypsyminded1

Black Friday doesn't have to be all bad. If you go out, be safe, be courteous, be mindful of others including workers, and treat yourself.

If you're looking for a sign on whether you need a life change then you're here for a reason. This is your sign. You aren't going to find meaning and purpose in the next item you buy or deal you find.
