One year ago.

It was one year ago today that Art of Adventure published its first blog post,
titled, “Who is Wilfred Peterson and Why should you care?

Art of Adventure, Wilfred Peterson

It’s not easy.

Creating and building a blog is not an easy thing to do. Trust me, even though there are hundreds of people out there in the blogosphere who will tell you that it is, it isn’t. It’s frustrating, time consuming, and you never really know how much influence, if any, you are having.

However, it is an adventure.

Art of Adventure was an idea born one year ago as the result of reading the following quote by Wilferd A. Peterson. The idea then was to create a venue that would provide stories, news and insights that would, “Inspire the Mind – Body & Spirit to Explore the Adventurous Life”. So far it has been a year long adventure.

And what is the Adventurous Life?

I still believe no one says it better than Wilfred Peterson.

“A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life; when he has the daring to open doors to new experiences and to step boldly forth to explore strange horizons, When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies. When he has the curiosity to experiment – to test and try new ways of living and thinking. When he has the flexibility to adjust and adapt himself to the changing patterns of life. When he refuses to seek safe places and easy tasks and has, instead, the courage to wrestle with the toughest problems. When he has the moral stamina to be steadfast in the support of those men in whom he has faith and those causes in which he believes. When he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints. When he has the nerve to move out of life’s shallows and venture forth into the deep. When he keeps his heart young, his expectations high and never allows his dreams to die. When he concludes that a rut is only another name for the grave and that the only way to stay out of the ruts is by living adventurously and staying vitally alive every day of his life.”

Stay out of the ruts.

And while no one says it better than Wilfred Peterson, Art of Adventure will continue its mission to share daily stories, news and insights that will, “Inspire the Mind – Body & Spirit to Explore the Adventurous Life”. So far we think we have done a pretty good job. What do you think?

Until our next birthday, let us all,”stay out of the ruts” and live adventurously every day of our lives.

Best regards, and remember….
