Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Helen Keller

What’s your adventure?

“Adventure, what adventure?” you might be asking. That’s actually a great question. I came across an old photo of my cousin when he was doing a motorcycle tour of the U.S. I was a cadet at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy at the time. I remember looking at him with awe. “What an adventure!” I exclaimed. He looked at me and said, ”Well you’re in the Coast Guard. That must be quite an adventure.” He was right. It was. We are all on some form of an adventure. Many times we think someone else’s adventure must be more exciting than ours. Perhaps we can look at our own adventure through someone else’s eyes and realize it’s pretty darn good.


So what is your current adventure? Is it studying for a new career? Practicing a new workout? Practicing an instrument? Going for a walk every morning as your dynamic meditation? Maybe it’s training for a race or training your dog, or trying a new recipe each week, or going to a new dance class, or making a conscious effort to meet new people, or implementing a new morning routine to create more ease in getting everyone fed, and ready, and out the door to school and work.

Our adventures look different than everyone else’s. They take on different forms at different times in our lives. The key is to stop comparing our adventures with someone else’s and to learn to appreciate our own unique adventure.

My hope is that we may all live our lives as an endless adventure of discovery: learning, growing, laughing, and loving.

Where are you learning to appreciate your own adventure? I’d love to hear about it!
