So, it is snowing now. In Atlanta. In March. And it will be an adventure to drive around today in precipitation that we southerners tend not to have a lot of dealings with. But I will, cause I am up for the hilarity that will surely ensue. And I am also currently working on a trip to the Amazon. The reason I am planning this trip is I went to the orchids section inside the botanical gardens and fell in love. The little plaque said they were from the Amazon and the next logical conclusion for me was that I needed to go there. I am soooo excited and ready for this adventure that I can’t wait for it to happen. In the mean time I do have some more local domestic trips planned and then there’s China…… But that is another trip.
But adventure does not have to be trips and traveling. It is life itself. And while I don’t have kids I know (because I am one, and shall always will be in my mother’s eye) that we can be an exciting and exhausting adventure for out parents. Adventure can be the journey to pay down all your debt (which I am on), starting a new relationship, or buying a house. Adventure is anything where you step outside yourself and the ordinary and blaze your own trail. Which means you need to give yourself more credit than you do. I mean starting a relationship with a new person, and getting to know them and being vulnerable. That’s brave. There are always reasons why not to trust people and creating that trust anyways is incredibly brave and courageous.
Get to know yourself as the awesome person you are. Really.
What brave, courageous, and adventurous things have you done today?
