You Don’t Have to Climb Mt. Everest to Live the Adventure

Mt Everest

Our hearts are made for adventure, but “adventure” often conjures up images of brave (and arguably insane) climbers scaling the face of Mt. Everest. However, you don’t have to climb Mt. Everest to live the adventure.

Adventure…

…encompasses an attitude of embracing uncertainty and running with it.

…involves risk.

…is written on your heart.

…embraces fresh experiences.

…challenges you, often both physically and mentally.

…can be found wherever you go.

…connects you with fellow adventurers.

…blazes new trails.

…views failure as a springboard.

…offers a difficult path but one that is much more satisfying.

…is the life for which you were created.

…is worth fighting for.

How and where are you living the adventure?

    Adventure to me can be summed up in the amount of places/experiences you are willing to have that is out of your norm. The more you do it, the more it becomes the norm, and you embrace the act of simply getting out of your routine.

      Dan, I couldn’t have said it better. Adventure does become easier to incorporate into your life as you do it more often. It was a bit awkward for me at first, but now it has become ingrained in who I am.

    Chris … I would say my adventure is seeing my role as a father change–more specifically, how I will relate to my son. He is fixing to leave and go to college this August. So I’m having to learn how to turn over more control to him while I have less control. It’s been stressful, but also a rush for both of us so far.

      Scott, thanks for sharing. This definitely falls under blazing new trails, embracing uncertainty, and involves risk. It must be a bittersweet time for you both. Where is he attending?
