Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. – Helen Keller
Daring is passion, unsure, and impetuous. Head pauses and ponders while heart hungers to be bold. Head thinks and debates, while heart dares to dream and do. Head avoids risk while heart says, let’s go.
Many overthink, trying to be logically realistic. What they should embrace is the impetuous lunacy of a daring dream.
As my kids confide their aspirations to me, I catch myself muttering. “What are you thinking, that’s not smart, that is not realistic at all.” Just like that, their daring dreams are crushed. This planet is teeming with folks that dumb down their dreams to do rational, realistic average shit.
Ms. Keller is urging us to live a daring, adventurous life with no regrets and no what ifs. Head will play by the rules, while heart says hell no, it can be done better. Head will evaluate, and judge, while heart dreams and creates.
Those who change the world are not the rational, cautious head thinkers, no, it is the rebellious, unconventional, daring ones. Without adventurous dreamers, we would still be stalking wildebeests with spears. Head will not fail for not trying while heart is forever failing while dreaming.
Give me colossal cojones over realistic common sense all day long!
