Living life to the fullest

I think my life is awfully dull. I find it boring to follow the same routine every day, wake up at the same time, do the same stuff and sleep at the same time. The same things just keep happening in a cycle. It gives some people satisfaction because they always know what is going to happen. Everything always goes according to plan and they love that because they’re not exactly into surprises. I, on the other hand, adore surprises. I want to wake up whenever I feel like and do something different and unexpected every day. I don’t want everything to be so predictable that it’s boring. I want to live a crazy life. I want every day to be a blank page that I can fill with wonderful things. If you live an ordinary life, you can only tell ordinary stories. So, you’ve got to make your life extraordinary so that you have extraordinary experiences to share.

I want to travel a lot, go to a new place every chance I get. I don’t want to just see the world. I want to hear it, smell it, taste it and feel it. I want to experience life like it’s an adventure, face its obstacles courageously and actually enjoy the moments when I get over the things in my way. I want to travel the world with barely any belongings except for a backpack with a camera to capture and hold on to the memories, a notebook so I can put down my thoughts and just enough money to spend without thinking too much. I’d meet new people, learn new languages and most of all, I’d have fun.

 I want to take huge risks to make things more interesting. I want to do dangerous or crazy things that no sane person would do. Life should be a thrilling experience. I want to be able to feel the rush of adrenaline inside me and actually feel my heart beating fast against my chest. Life isn’t interesting if you don’t take risks to see if things work out. You’ve got to make mistakes so you can learn from them. You’ve got to face failure, so that success will actually mean something to you. You’ve got to go through sorrow, so you can really appreciate happiness. You’ve got to take risks so you actually have a chance at a good life. You’re not even living if you don’t take risks.

I want to do these things and much more so that when I’m too old to do crazy things, I’m not living with regret. I’d actually be content then because I wouldn’t be wondering, “What if….?”. I would’ve made the most of my life. These might seem like crazy goals. I probably seem like someone who wants to do nothing, but enjoy life in the most insane ways possible, but I am insane. I want to live life to the fullest and try to achieve my goals because, you only live once, right?
