"1 More Mile" ~ where will it take me?
My screen name suits my mission. I don’t use the term “adventure” loosely. I daydream about doing things that create a moment, a memory, or a story to share. The difference between me and countless others who daydream is an urgency, or obsession if you know me, to take those images in my mind and turn them into realities.
So I plan adventures and set out to do them. Some are accomplished in minutes, a day, a year, or maybe a lifetime. They are places to see, things to accomplish, a path to travel, or an experience that pushes one or more of my senses into overdrive. Everyday has an opportunity just waiting to be recognized and taken, yet many get filed somewhere as a missed opportunity. I hate missed opportunities. And of course there are those forces around me strategically placing obstacles in my path attempting to discourage or divert my attention. You know them well; work, laziness, finances, and events that can unfortunately be described as responsibilities. The only weapon I use to tame these forces is an attempt at a life balance and the strength to overcome those obsticles.
I want to go 1 More Mile "guilt free" and see how many of these adventures I can accomplish this year. Sharing them here will be part of the fun.
