The adventure starts when you decide to make it happen. When the start date is set your mind goes through stages and patterns that are yet to be discovered. Insecurities come and go and are overcome. Thoughts and daydreams accelerate exploring places never imagined. Often those places are scary, often exciting. People facing death report seeing their life flash before them. I see my future flash in front of me. I like that. Looking at your past does little good. Looking at your future in a positive tone lays a path for you to follow. Only by paving your own road and following your own compass heading will you arrive at your destination, not the destination prescribed by others.
