An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered. Gilbert K. Chesterton
At the beginning of the year, I was talking with a friend about resolutions and my dislike for the temporary promises that people make to themselves and only tend to follow for about a week. During this conversation, my friend disclosed that he had made a resolution – to have more adventures this year. It didn’t matter if the adventures were big (like traveling out of the country) or smaller in scope (running a 5K), the goal was to try new things have to have fun!
Reflecting on the past 5 months and especially the past few weeks, I think I too am following this goal during 2012. Granted traveling to Argentina and Brazil were big adventures… especially the Brazil part of the travels… But I am realizing that I have had a number of other adventures recently – signing up for Ragnar, running the survive the farm race, joining a pick-up game of Ultimate, making new friends. Many of these things are pushing me outside my normal comfort zone but it’s all been good!
So, here’s to the adventure of everyday life – I’ve enjoyed the adventures so far, and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!
