I spoke with my students today and they hold so much promise to their own future that you can’t help to catch their enthusiasm of the joy of adventure of the unknown and life. Sadly, as an experienced adult and seasoned instructor, I get caught up in my own world that often times has become so small it is suffocating. Traveling can be journeys within our own life and overcoming our own challenges, branching out into the unknown which is scary, and facing fears that make us stronger as individuals. Yet, through our adventures and whether it be physically traveling to another place or a metaphorical version of travel that life has put you somewhere foreign; you come across beautiful sights, amazing experiences, and really special connections. No matter where you are in your adventure, the value of experience cannot compare to the most treasured diamond nor can the experience ever foretell the value of love.
