A Mental Snack (36)

Share your thoughts...

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." ~ Jon Krakuer

What is one change in your life that you're glad happened?

So true. I live in the midwest, and I'm surprised at how many people are literally afraid to visit places like New York, or anywhere outside the midwest. Then again, when I lived in NY, I was afraid of the midwest. We all have to learn to go outside our boundaries once in a while.

People fear the unknown, even when the present is's often a theme in my poetry.

Great quote, btw.

Lydia's right, many, many midwesterners aren't big on traveling and view large cities w/ suspicion!
