The possibilities are endless!!

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Think of it as an adventure. Whenever we have a family get-together at my parents' house, my nephew Evan (6 years old), always wants to go on an "adventure." That usually consists of a nice long walk in the woods that I used to play in as a kid. Along the edge of the property is a creek, as well. That's usually where the "adventure" ends up. For Evan, every day is an adventure.

Yes, as adults, we have things we have to do & we have responsibilities, but when did we lose our sense of adventure? When did we start putting limits on ourselves?

Yes, we need to be "grown up," but I want to be more like Evan -- I want every day to be an adventure!! I want to try new foods & new forms of exercise. I want to visit new places & make new friends. I'm tired of the status quo.

Today's challenge: Find your adventure & then follow it!! The possibilities are endless!! Let me know how it turns out.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Absolutely awesome! This really speaks to me today and will indeed help me on my journey.

And what is it with nephews named Evan . . . I have one also . . . could be the same one!!!
I love watching the mystery and adventure of life through his eyes.

Thanks for the 'detour' --- and reminder to take the road less traveled.

You rock!

  I agree with Evan. Every day should be an adventure where we learn something new, or try a new food.
