The word alone stirs up feelings of wonder and beautiful moments to come.
In less than 5 days, my family will be heading out on an adventure… Three weeks of exploring… Together. All four of us…. Two teen girls and their parents! And it’s going to be AWESOME!
We are taking a trip to Portugal…
Ah yes, blue skies… beautiful beaches… cobblestone roads… castles… the most delicious pastries…. AND most importantly, I get to visit with my darling, huge family!
We are heading on an adventure…To breathe in deeply of a new place.
To make memories and spend quality time with those I love.
I travel because it wakes me up.
It’s a little scary… and a lot of joy…
It opens me up to see new things and I engage in a whole new way.
It’s a completely IMMERSIVE experience. Only that moment matters.
The busyness of everyday life is gently silenced and is quickly replaced by my desire to absorb all the beauty surrounding me. I feel like my body is suddenly more aware, and I don’t want to miss a moment.
Travel takes me where I need to be emotionally.
It reminds me of sacred moments and intentional living.
It speaks of freedom and purpose.
It shows me beauty in diversity and deepens my cultural experiences.
So here is the thing I am learning about ADVENTURE. It doesn’t have to be about traveling to far-away places. It’s about living with intention. Adventure could be waiting right outside your door. It’s about opening yourself to new new ideas and experiences. It’s about taking a chance and living with no regrets. Its about saying no to fear, and yes to enthusiasm and new things.
So, dear friends…
I invite you to ask yourself: what’s next on your adventure list?
Go on, dream big, or small… Make that list.
and then… JUST GO!
Deepen your intentional living spirit.
