One challenge from the other blog transferred here is the Quotography meme. This week is an open theme, and I chose "adventure" as my key word.
This picture was one of the very few pictures I took while trekking to the crater of Mt. Pinatubo last Saturday. It was a very tiring hike, and I was a bit disappointed at myself because I couldn't pace myself. It took me three hours to reach the crater, but of course, even if it took me that long, I am very proud of myself because I was able to do what I just did.
Helen Keller is one of the persons I truly admire, and I do agree with what she said about life being an adventure. In my point of view, it doesn't really matter what sort of adventures you do - you can pig out, party all night, do the bungee jump, or laugh out loud with friends... the important thing is that you enjoy your life and do something to make it better rather than stare at the ceiling and collect dust. The important thing you must know in any adventure you go through is the word "respect." Respect yourself, respect nature, and respect the people around you. Sure you can party all night, if that's your idea of adventure, but... respect yourself, respect those around you. Party all you want, but don't go wasted, and if you need to be at work the next day, be at your 100%.
"Life is short" is already a cliche, but it's true, right? Treat each day as an adventure. Make your life a heaven on earth.
