Here are a couple of suggestions.

The first suggestion is a bit strange.

The second is stranger still.

But both are worth doing.

Why?

Because today or in a few days, you can do these things.

There will come a day when you can’t.

Suggestion 1

Ask someone you love and that loves you to stop what they’re doing, switch off and look you in the eye.

Then ask that someone you love and that loves you, this question:

Would you like to come on an adventure?

Then watch their face…

Surprise?

Happiness?

Joy?

Suspicion?

And would they trust you?

Before you ask, you will have already thought about what they would really like to do.

With you.

A meal?

A hotel?

Both?

Something else?

But I think it is important to phrase the question like this:

Would you like to come on an adventure?

And why should you do it?

Because today, or in a few days, you can.

There will come a day when you can’t.

Suggestion 2

The next time you are alone at home, stand in front of a mirror and ask yourself a question.

Out loud.

Would you like to come on an adventure?

Then pause.

And think.

And watch your own face.

Would you trust you?

Adventure.

I hope you smile when you ask yourself this.

And that you feel a little excited.

And that you start to imagine.

And to create.

And to plan.

Why should you do it?

Because today, or in a few days, you can.

And there will come a day when you can’t.

Life is little.

  1. Michael Owen … this one made me smile…
    And feel childishly excited.
    I started to imagine.
    And to create a plan.
    You spoke to my heart!
    Thank you for that!

      I can picture you.

      Looking in a mirror Polly.

      Asking yourself,

      “Would you like to go on an adventure?”

      And smiling x
