Life is one big adventure, we do not really know where we came from or where we are going to, so let’s make the most of it whilst we are here.
A bit dismal? Well that’s life. Every morning when I awake a new adventure begins. Just the walk to the kitchen is exciting. Will I be able to get out of my bed, will my legs carry me and be careful when you stumble on to the breakfast table. You might slice off a finger whilst cutting the bread, or scald yourself with hot tea when preparing it.
Eventually you do the housework and the next adventurous experiences arrive. Perhaps you might have a short circuit on the vacuum cleaner and the electric shock is already programmed. Not to mention the computer, no it will not explode, but perhaps during the night when you were sleeping, a virus developed or you might even have an attack from trojans. Perhaps someone cracked the code to your online banking and emptied your bank account.
But life goes on and you go to the supermarket for a shopping experience, as long as you do not have a car accident on the way. You enter the store and find that that they are sold out of your favourite biscuits with the cream filling and must do with those with the jam filling. Not the same, but life has its twists and turns, all part of the adventure.
Perhaps you might burn the dinner when cooking because the postman, who always rings twice, kept you waiting at the door to sign a document for an important delivery. This is no problem, you can always make a sandwich if you have enough bread.
Yes life is full of surprises. And you decide to take a walk in the afternoon, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. After half an hour the sun disappears, rain clouds are gathering, there is lightening and thunder and you are only dressed in a light summer dress. You arrive home soaked and cold and half an hour later you realise you are shivering and your nose is running. You spend the evening in bed trying to keep warm and use a complete box of paper hankerchiefs because you are continuously sneezing.
That evening when you are trying to sleep, despite the headache caused by your cold, you realise that it is not really so bad. The day was one adventure, and full of highlights.
