About adventures

Friday, January 12, 2007

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly understood; an inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.


G. K. CHESTERTON


What a wise statement that is!! I found it in my Zen Calendar, and have been living by that for quite some time now. I just didn't put it into words like this. My husband started me on that way to view things, because every time we got lost with our car (frequently), he would call it an adventure, and be upbeat and happy, looking for just the right kind of music on the radio for such an exciting event. Cracked me up. The quote is very wise, and I think my new favorite one.

    So you are another adventurer!!! I am glad you stopped by at my blog! I think I will post quotes more often. I really like them, and this year is the first year, I actually got a calendar like that!

    What a great quote! I share your husband's philosophy. We spend a lot of time going to obscure hospitals for his appointments so are often on an adventure!
    My middle daughter used to get scared if she thought we were lost, so I always told them "We aren't lost, we are just taking a voyage of discovery!"
    I don't know if it put her mind at ease, but she stops worrying about being lost!
    I was thinking of getting a calender with quotes on it...they certainly inspire thought!
