This morning my attention was drawn to this video that Vodafone posted on their Firsts.com site.
Overcoming fear is challenging.
Maintaining wonderment is challenging.
Taking things for granted is easy.
Keeping a positive attitude in life can be easy.
I love how these 2 ladies, An and Ria, from the Netherlands are prime examples of 2 opposite spectrum in life. An is afraid to fly. While Ria held herself back in respect to her husband’s fear. However, they both took their first flights together.
Better late, than never.
I cried tears of joy with An. I laughed along when Ria fell down on the beach and laughed happily. Such pure, raw emotions – uncensored, unfiltered – they were just like little kids.
Human experience has come a long way. Intercontinental travel is only a matter of hours, instead of months. Communication is immediate and not reliant on a scroll attached to a bird. It is true we can explore the world with the help of the internet. However, nothing beats a hands-on, personal experience in the actual, physical location.
This video speaks volume in regards to the intention of this blog. Travel. Experience. Give life a chance.
I hope when I am in my 70’s, I would still be riding roller coasters and laughing with pure joy.
