“Success” is not actually attaining the goal of experiencing everything you want to, but rather never losing the desire to achieve such a feat.
Some people ski. Some snowmobile. And some keep running through the winter. I keep biking. I do ski. I do snowshoe. But bikes just have a hold on me. I find them magical.
I think people often view “adventure” as one of those abstract things that they aren’t able to attain. That it’s only for the “lucky”.
