Adventures can be far away in Mexico, or in your own backyard
Adventures can be far away in Mexico, or in your own backyard

Tonight I went to see the new Pixar/ Disney movie “UP”. The movie lived up to the laughs shown in the previews and was fun for the whole family. But as always with these movies, there was a much deeper and more powerful message to be found.

Simple as it may be, the movie pointed out that we don’t have to head into the jungle or go to some crazy island, or even leave our homes, to have an Adventure.

Often we have this “grass is always greener” mentality and constantly search for the next big thing, when really, we need not go further then our own front door.

I do love travel and the adventures I have had, but it’s not necessarily due to the destinations or the things I did. It’s WHO I met there, what I FELT there and the SPIRIT of the experience that stays with me. Seeing a great Pyramid in Mexico is wonderful, but if you are in an awful mood or with someone you don’t really care about, or even alone, the experience isn’t half as wonderful.

So let’s stop searching for bigger, better and more exciting. And sometimes just appreciate what we have now.

There are plenty of Adventures out there to be had and plenty of experiences, but it’s what we make of that time we have that is most important!

SEE THE MOVIE! It’s great!
