Why do I adventure?
Many reasons actually. One of the big reasons is because of the way I feel when I’m testing my limits. Yes it can be painful, scary, or downright dirty, but the feeling of accomplishment is what’s rewarding. Little feat or big feat, each challenge is a reminder that I’m alive and capable of many things.
I adventure many activies because I want to be a well rounded individual. It allows me to connect with different people with different interests. I am able to build a relationship with adventurers that range from novice to expert in their field. Not only does it allow me to be well rounded emotionally, but also physically.
I dabble in many activities because it keeps me from getting bored, or overworking in a certain area. Yes at times I have a focus on a certain recreational activity, but I always manage to bounce back and forth from one to the other throughout the years. Revisiting each activity like an old friend.
Another reason I adventure is to be inspired and to inspire others. I was inspired by my family. My uncle and cousin were avid adventurers and though they didn’t live long lives, they definitely lived happy ones. They made sure to always include others, get others excited about the outdoors, and play more than they worked (but they worked hard to deserve it).
My hope is to inspire people like they inspired me. I want people to feel included and not limited by challenges or fears. Feel success from within, not because someone patted you on the back or awarded you, but because you did that from within.
I adventure because I have support from my friends and family. They encourage me and are interested. They don’t knock me down because of my passion or stereotype that I might fit in. My mom shares my Facebook posts because she’s proud of me. If there is only one person in this world that I care most about making her proud of me its my mother, because she’s the one that has supported me from conception to today. (Happy Mother’s Day!!) She’s still my emergency contact because she answers a phone call from an unknown number and she’ll be the first one to get to me if something were to happen.
So in the comments I’d like you to share:
