I Hope You Dance

I Hope You Dance

In the words of Hellen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing” That right there is her world view but hey is she right? Is the pursuit of adventure a plus or minus in life? What is adventure or “dance” anyway?

The Webster dictionary defines adventure as an exciting or remarkable experience. Over the years I have gone for adventures like lion walks, starting businesses and running them, falling in love, learning new skills, walking on hot coals etc. In as much as I am naturally inclined to pursue adventure I know people who can’t fathom getting out certainty. Though I respect them, one thing is for sure when you don’t seek adventure you slowly lose your sense of wonder and growth. To the extent that you are not growing death comes in.

So what areas in your life need some adventure? Your relationship? Business? Job? Whatever it is go get some it will do you well.

And finally, like Ann Womack;
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted

God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance
