A Simple Request. Occupy Your Sense of Adventure. And invent an adventure of your own. Because, isn't life too short to do anything ELSE?

A Simple Request: Occupy Your Sense of Adventure
And invent an adventure of your own. Because, isn't life too short to do anything ELSE?

Welcome to your (almost) weekly update on the Occupy My Blog movement that may or may not be getting old since we haven't seen.much of Occupy Wall Street these days. But that's neither here nor there, because leave it to yours truly to beat a dead horse into the ground. YES, my dear occupying friends, we beat dead horses with the best of 'em. And by doing so, TOGETHER, we are changing the political, geographical, logistical and statistical landscape as we know it. And for that, we should be PROUD (dead horse beaters). So please, stand up, take a bow and pat yourselves on the back for an occupation well done (overdone? LOL)

However, as you may have guessed, I DO have one more simple keep this occupation alive far beyond its prime. To Occupy Your Sense of Adventure. Because, I don't know about you, but I'm coming to the ultimate conclusion that life's simply too short to do anything else.

Have you ever regretted a missed opportunity for (mis) adventures to foreign lands? Have you ever looked back on your life of the straight and narrow and wondered what might have happened if you took those months your friends did backpacking through Europe after graduation? How would things be different today if you had accepted that invite to India versus opting to jump head first into a career? What if you had gone through with your plans for world domination by barreling into Egypt, Indiana Jones style,with nothing but the clothes on your back and a whip on your shoulder (and cowboy hat on your head, lest we forget) in search of the holy grail? What if we really HAD said "damn the torpedoes, I'm going in" and invaded Germany with the same gusto with which we invaded the financial industry? What if we had opted for a license to travel...over the Chartered Financial Analyst designation?  (3 years of hell, guaranteed)

Well, my dear friends, the time has come to stop the game of what-ifs. To end the torture of regret. The time to say fuck it. Cause for real, if not now, when? If not here, why? If not today, who cares? Because for real, if ONE more friend dies abruptly before we carried out our massive plans for tubing down the Delaware River followed by yachting in Turkey (misadventures guaranteed) I'm going to throw up. (and remember youz won't like it and certainly not on Facebook cause you'll have to hold my hair)

So why put off that massive adventure to Asia you've been hoping to do at some point in the near future but too comfortable in the day to day to make it a reality? I mean, there's no guarantee we live to follow it through (and follow-through is key, if you ask me) So follow by example, and FOLLOW your sense of adventure. Set sail, see where the winds take youz. And when you're through, we can only hope that the four winds blow you safely home.

Carpe Diem, as it were. Cause victory will be ours! If we live another day to seize it.  So adventure it up, buttercups! And have fun storming the castle.

 Happy Occupying! Over and out for now. More updates to follow. Unless we're eaten by great white sharks on the great barrier reef in Australia...only time will tell.  Until then, there's this:

Pretty sure we're gonna need a bigger boat...
