There has Got To Be More To It.

Updated on December 8, 2008

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax-- Of cabbages--and kings-- And why the sea is boiling hot-- And whether pigs have wings."

--from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872 by Lewis Carroll

Yes, there is!

Once we pull our heads out of our addictions, and then (for some of us) our subsitute for the addiction, we find a whole world out there full of many things. Many interesting things indeed. Where's your sense of adventure? Take a chance try something new. You find yourself in need of something to talk about sometime, other then what you did and why your only drinking a soda or coffee.

Picking up a new hobby or blowing the dust off of an old talent that we decided to dump, once we got rip-roaring into our addiction, is always a fun revisit...Like an old friend...You may be a little rusty but eventually you find yourself enjoying what you used to call fun. Maybe reading a good book, or finding a new interest.

Why not try scuba diving, cycling, or skiing? Maybe taking guitar lessons, or flying lessons? Try golf, rock climbing or simple hiking? I hear that long walks are good for the soul. Maybe something a little less adverturious is in order, like painting, writing or even pottery? There are so many things to do in this world that are interesting.

If you would like, maybe pick up a social cause, or fight the good fight for those who can't fight for themselves or be a voice for those who have no voice? Nothing wrong with taking up a cause that you are passionate about, or being a helping hand to those who need. Volunteer work is very fulfilling as well, and who know it could be your adovaction, or a new path for you?

Once our heads are out of our behinds. We can notice there is so much more to life, then hiding out in some dark little corner watching the rest of the world passing us by and telling someone stories of faded glory and delapedated dreams.  Live for new found moments and build grand new memories, and share with the world your world.

Make each day count, and wake up just for today.

May this is more your speed?
