They say life is too short. That may be because there is so much to experience in one's lifetime, it's not possible to do it all.

But why not go out there and try as much as possible?

While some people choose to remain within their comfort zone–whether out of fear or lack of interest–others are taking advantage of their mortality by going out and experiencing all life has to offer.
Life is a grand adventure, wouldn't you say?
In an effort to inspire those who may lack the motivation to get out and carpe diem the heck out of life, Redditor TheRealRandiRey asked
"What is one experience you think every single human should have?"

Positive humanity-related experiences seemed to be a good place to start.

Perfect Role Model

"Having a really good boss. Work is totally different when you have someone who mentors and cares about their employees."

– NeverCallMeFifi

Embracing You

"Being comfortable with yourself, physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, and in all other ways. Just being happy with who you are."

– Prismatic_Dragon

Going After Laughter

"Finding something so funny that you roll on the floor laughing."

– CoelHen2021

Attain The Goal

"Being Debt-Free as an adult"

– kittybidapadoop

"Paying off my student loans felt better than an orgasm. I was stressed for years trying to pay it off and I finally was fortunate enough to land a good job and a good partner who allowed me to skip paying half rent for a couple months."

– pale_moon_pixie

Love Matters

"Feeling loved. Doesn’t matter if it’s romantic or platonic but feeling loved in some way."

– DoYouReadMuch

Taking in certain sights was strongly encouraged by these Redditors.

Cosmic Wonder

"Seeing the milky way."

– Jayciflash

The Ultimate Blackout

"A total solar eclipse. Did that once back in 2017 and it was amazing. There’s another big one in North America in about two years."

– ShanghaiTed

Foreign Travel

"Visiting another country. I feel like it would put people in a different perspective for everyone."

"Also, swimming in the ocean."

– boot2skull

Get Out There

"This is important but I want to add: visiting a country that’s significantly different from your own. Going from US -> Canada or Denmark -> Sweden is great but the cultures aren’t drastically different. The people, the food, the ideologies. I feel like you learn a lot more about the world and yourself when you visit someplace different."

– GivesCredit

"Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving." – Auntie Mame.

Don't be a poor sucker.

Wintery Playtime

"Getting to play in snow."

– brokendowndryer

Spend Time Alone

"Having no obligations or responsibilities, even if it's only for a few days. Nowhere you need to be, nothing on your schedule that you need to do. There are no loved ones around who you need to consider. You literally have the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want."

– domino519

Channeling Walden

"A breathtaking moment in nature."

"It’s hard to put words to it but it conjures up so many different emotions that somehow all combine to create pure awe."

– iguanaherder

I think traveling to a foreign country is important.

Getting to experience different cultures firsthand and engaging with and learning from locals can be a life-changing experience.

I was lucky to have worked on a cruise ship where I traveled the world and worked with people from all over the world.

Without my exposure to different cultures, I would be a different person.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.
