Why It's Important To Live Life With A Little Adventure
Au Pair Adventures

Humans have a tendency to be very repetitious. We wake up in the morning. Go to school or work. Come home. Eat. Sleep. It's the same thing everyday. Yet we are comfortable with the same boring thing all the time. It's our comfort zone.

We live in a spot were we know we are safe and sound. But is that really living? Where is the risk? Where is the adventure? If we aren't living our lives to the fullest then why are we here at all? This is why it's important to live a life with a little adventure.

Adventure is an experience that greatly impacts one's life and begins to define how they live after, but it is the exact definition that can be different for everyone. For example, someone's sense of adventure may be to go to Mount Everest and conquer the mountain while another person's idea would be to go on a hike in a nearby park. Even though these adventures are different, both people will learn valuable experiences that will ultimately change their lives.

There are so many reasons why we should embrace adventure in our everyday lives. First of all, we are all stuck in our safety bubble that we rarely try to experience anything new. It's very easy to get stuck in our safe routine and sometimes we just forget how to live!

Second of all, going on vacations and little adventures is scientifically shown to make a person happier; you forget about all your work problems and go love life.

You experience something new, which gives you the opportunity to share your stories. What's even better is when you find someone else who had a similar adventure and swap stories!

Going on adventures gives you a new view of time. You begin to realize that we are on this Earth for only a fraction of what we originally thought; humans only have so many years until we are unable to go out anymore. Which is why people with adventure in their blood begin to live like each day is our last.

This leads to the last reason why adventure is important in our lives: we only live once. I know it's the cliché saying that everyone goes on about, but it's true. Why spend our lives holed up in a little town with work that is actually pretty insignificant and wait for the adventures to come to us. But that is not how life works. Life wants you to go out and make stories—you to go out there and find the meaning of life. And unless you don't take that little step—that little risk—you will never experience adventure and, in return, life.

So let's all put our phones, laptops, and tablets down and stop looking at those amazing adventure pictures on the internet and get out there. It doesn't have to be a trip to the Caribbean or the jungle. Remember, everyone's adventure is different; go talk to a random person and befriend them, attend a fancy diner that serves authentic Korean food, or take a themed road trip for a weekend. These are all worthy adventures that beak up the daily norm of our lives. This is how you live. Do something different everyday and you will live a life full of adventure. So what are you waiting for? Go out there and claim your own adventure!

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
