Learning through adventure, like Abby Sunderland

Most of us surely understood what adventure is, and the common answer will fall into description about high risk activities; just like what was happen recently to 16 years old girl, Abby Sunderland, who solo crossing through Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean, from Los Angeles to Perth. Most of world media and people blustered her escapade, just because she didn't make it. She rescued at Indian Ocean, thousand miles before Perth.

What i am going to share is not her controversy, but a light lesson yet meaningful to our daily life. The question is what arise in your mind when word of adventure come up? Well, i believe most of us would agree if the answer around these 3 words; challenges, risks and uncertainty.

I wouldn't know my strength, ability or even my weaknesses if i run from them. Challenges taught me to admit my weakness and know my strength. Risks taught me how to count what do i have and don't. Uncertainties made my eyes and heart open. Falling just make someone tougher then before.

I believe what would happen to Abby in the future is more then great but also she wouldn't disappointed for the things she didn't do. And last but not least, once you don't make any mistakes, i would be love to say; "you might be do nothing".

Well fellow it just a self reflection, hope you inspire, happy blogging...

Despite the failure, we salute her efforts across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. He's had extraordinary courage. Travel with the risks
very high. However, before doing the job with high risks, big challenges and deal with uncertainties, as she did, then the necessary calculations accurately and correctly, a solid preparation and training hard. Thanks for your info.
