In your home city, right now there are many people who haven’t had the opportunity or good fortune to experience many things that you and I take for granted.
There are people who have:
never had a story read to them by their parents
never been on an airplane
never had a real, full body massage
never tasted true gourmet food, made fresh from high quality ingredients
never heard a live band perform
never been to a play or musical
never traveled outside of their own country
never been camping
never seen the top of a snow capped mountain.
Most of us take for granted the things we do on a regular basis. We may even ridicule people for their lack of experiences and almost primitive lifestyle. For a moment, flip that around. What are all the things that you have never done, but you have dreamed about. What are the experiences you keep putting off because of lack of money, time or other obligations?
Perhaps you have:
never written the book you have long dreamed about
never traveled to Thailand, Morocco or some other exotic country you have only caught glimpses of on TV
never been to the symphony or the ballet
never backpacked across Europe
never started your own business
never followed your life-long dream
There are people out there who are equally aghast at your lack of experiences and your inability to life live to the fullest. Life is short. Get your priorities straight and start living your dreams.
