We all have goals and ambition in life. Whether your aim is to land a job in a multi-million dollar company where you rake in the cash and realistically wipe your nose with a one-hundred dollar note. Or, chill on the streets earning minimum wage and wasting your money on alcohol and drugs. I’m not judging, but we are all capable of making decisions, and every decision we make affects our lives in the future.

The question is: Are you living your lives to the fullest and could you honestly say that you’re happy with it? Following your specific routines: going to work, rushing home, cooking dinner, doing your washing, or even watching Masterchef at 7:30 pm?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to spice up your life? Being spontaneous and keeping yourself on your toes.
