Recently, Mark and I decided that adventure was the name of the game for 2017. Nothing outlandish, just plain and simple adventure. The willingness to say “yes,” rather than question if we should.
By all means, I have no skin in the game when it comes to being an advice columnist. I have run my bank account to the ground more times than you can count.. with a smile on my face. I bought a dog with $56 bucks in my account. He was $40. I’ve had 5 jobs in 5 years. I probably drink more wine than I should on weeknights, and I’ve quit more than I started. And, while I claim to love adventure, I actually love consistency.
Think about this though. My constant has been CHAOS. This year, I decided that my constant is adventure. When I chose to choose ADVENTURE this year, rather than CHAOS, I made a conscious decision…
My state of being is being bold without knowing the outcome.
People will always have expectations of you. But I beg you to rank the expectations you have of yourself higher than those placed upon you. Choose your state of being. Choose it well. Choose it wise. And adventure the hell out of your own life.
To the adventurers, am I right?
