The Great Unknown

We are all born explorers.  Not all remain so throughout life, but the instinct is always there.  For me, happiness depends greatly on the idea of having something to look forward to.  It can be something as simple as a new job or as monumental as a life changing trip around the world.  Regardless, we all require some element of mystery and hope - to know there's still undiscovered country out there.  I've always said "I want to know that, no matter how good or bad it gets, life has the potential to change."  It sounds simple enough, but let's not underestimate the power of change.  There is a Great Unknown.  We're designed to seek it out.  Not to question all things, but to actively answer the questions we have and questions we never thought to ask.  To adventure and explore.  To meet new people and experience new things.  To find some balance between comfort, exhilaration, and fear.
