Hello, I am Aditus Maximus, and welcome to the first page of my Adventure Blog.
I am an adventurous soul who has been finding that years in Corporate America have slowly and relentlessly been extinguishing my passion and eroding my adventurous spirit. The more I watch this happen, the more horrified I become, yet I find it hard to overcome the momentum of this downward spiral into corporate mediocrity. In years past, there was a Fire In My Soul that propelled me through life, through the world, and forward into endless new adventures. The Spark of Passion is still lit within me, but it is flickering compared to the Insatiable Burning Fire it once was. I fear that if I don’t take action soon, this fire will be permanently extinguished!!! For this reason, I have decided to create this personal blog for myself, in dedication to my pursuit of a life of adventure, meaning, and restored passion.
The goal of my blog does not depend on hundreds of readers or any sort of ad revenue. That is not what this blog will ever be about, and that will not define my personal success with this endeavor. This blog is for me personally. It is a type of online journal where I can track and monitor my growth and passion the pursuit of the things in life that truly do matter to me. It is a personal reminder that life is too short to waste in a cubicle, that there is more to life than an excel spreadsheet, and that there is more to ME than an outlook calendar. So for me, personal success with this blog will not be in the number of readers or the (unlikely) ad revenue. For me, personal success with this blog will be in the visual and undeniable proof that I have reignited the passion within me and am actively living and pursuing a joyful and meaningful life.
I love fitness, adventure, and travel. I also love to write. So my intent is to use this blog to combine these joys, to reignite the passions in my life, to write and document my great adventures, and to share and record the personal growth lessons that I gain along these journeys. On the way, I hope to make powerful connections and build incredible friendships with the many amazing human souls that I come across on my adventures, as well as through similar spirited bloggers! Perhaps by chance, others out there will find this blog as it develops and they themselves will either be inspired to reinvest in their own lives, or to share with me their own exciting adventures!!
I understand that this blog, and the gradual refocusing of my life towards passion, will be a slow and steady process. But I hope that in time this blog will not only inspire me to continually have more great adventures, but also serve to me as proof that I truly am living the life that I am passionate about. I truly hope that this becomes a long term blog endeavor, and that one day when I am wiser and well aged, I can look back on this as visual proof to see that my life truly was the adventure I dreamt it would be.
Starting a blog is a big step, especially for somebody like me who has no idea what he is doing. But the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
And so here I am, taking that scary first single step.
As I embark upon my personal journey, I welcome you to walk alongside with me for as long as you desire.
