What happened? Why did life go from a place of wonder to a place of routine and predictability? Can we bring it back again?

To live an adventurous life, you just have to define it. It’s different for every person. Figure out what lights you up inside? What did you do for fun as a child? Go do those things again. It’s as simple as that. Stop waiting for life to happen to you. Make life happen for yourself.
