I love a great adventure! The last few years I’ve thrown up my arms and said “yes!” to any adventure that has come my way. Throwing caution to the wind and stepping into the unknown can be fun and exciting. It’s easy to get caught up in all the reasons not to head out on a big adventure, but more often than not, the adventure leads us to a remarkable place we often could not have even conceived.
Adventures are full of risk, curiosity and challenges. Taking risks can be very rewarding, especially when it comes to adventure. We still plan, prepare and dream about what it will be like along the way. At some point, we have to just let go. It’s in the “letting go” we step outside our comfort zone. It is there, in the space of letting go, the adventure begins.
If you are having difficulty throwing caution to the wind, ask yourself, “What will I miss if I stay within the confines of safety and what I know?” “What will taking this risk add to my life?” Perhaps, the risk truly lies in not letting go.
“Adventure is worthwhile in itself.”
