You know what I want to be able to do when I am at the age of 60+?
I would want to be able to tell stories to my children and grandchildren. I would want to be able to share with them stories of my adventures, the wonderful and amazing things I did. I would want to be able to tell them the stories about the people, the cultures and the places that I had visited. I would want to bring my children and grandchildren joy as I tell them these stories, to make their eyes open wide with awe and strive to be even more awesome than I am.
I would want to be able to do all that because I think it would be proof that I had lived life well.
To me, I believe stories are able to open up the imagination, to allow oneself to immerse in a world that is beyond reality, to experience something that they might not ever experience. That is precisely what I want to bring to my children and grandchildren.
But to do all that, I have to live life and throw myself out there to experience whatever the world has to offer.
