This past weekend I took a long overdue trip to NYC! I was excited because I haven't been since 2011, and every year since I left I kept saying, I'm going! About a month ago, I decided to book a ticket. No matter what. I'm thankful for how well it worked out, but it re-confirmed a previous frame of though I developed when I was younger: Go For It! Live the Adventure that life is!
Now I can be transparent and say, it might be a little idealistic being that I don't have kids or a husband to tend to, but its just how I really feel deep down inside. Adventure isn't about breaking the bank or even going around the world. You're not required to escape your life to be adventurous or go on adventure. I believe adventure takes faith, discomfort, and a passion for more!
When people get stuck doing the same routine, going to the same places, and having the same type of experiences, it will get old; you will get bored; and you just might feel sucky and dried out. Its the times when you go to a new part of the city, workout at a new location, meet some new people, eat at a new restaurant, or for me, buy a random groupon to do something on a bucket list, in which you feel invigorated. The spark of spontaneity and change can have a positive affect on your mind and body.
Your joy increases as a result of new stimulation your mind and body receive. Your adrenaline gets going. Through adventure you are honoring your spirit because you are choosing to awaken it to the possibility of resonating at a higher level.
Spending even 4 days in a city full of lights, laughter, winter, protests, passion, love, anger, trash, and raw talent just does something to me! Going to see a Broadway show with a great friend I haven't seen in a long time, just does something to me! Adventure is awakening! Above all, adventure is transformational.
BE Adventurous. BE Awakened~
