I have driven in Paris, lived in Africa and danced in a bar show.I have to say that I really enjoy all the unplanned adventures that I have had in my life. When I would go to a job interview in Canada I would whince when they asked what my plans for the future were. There was no way I could ramble off my devotion to a company when I wasn’t sure I would be living on the same continent in a few years time! I am not a planner by nature. I plan dinner five minutes before I make it.
For the past seven years I have looked back on each year as it has gone by and thought “wow, I never thought I would be where I am now, last year.” I probably would have laughed if someone would have told me my future. This thrills me because I can only hope for more new and exciting things to happen in my life.
I also try not to put expectations on things. When I arrived in Morocco I had no idea what it would be like. The plane I departed Canada on was taking me to Europe, a place I had always dreamed about travelling, but still I had no clue what downtown Málaga would behold (nor where I would sleep that night). I prefer to experience these adventures as they come to me – so as not to be heartbroken later.
This post is too self-centered though. Make me feel better – tell me about your dreams of adventure andthe surprising turns life has taken you. I want to read about other peoples thoughts on the same subject.
