Daring to Find Adventure

Daring to Find Adventure.
That is what I yearn for.
Adventure.

Into the great unknown, or maybe just outside my back door.
Adventure– going beyond expectations and normality.

Summer.
When I was a child, that one word left so many questions unanswered. Excitement kept my heart beating; adrenaline rushed through my veins.
As a Type-A kid, adventure never fit into my vocabulary, until summertime arrived.

Unpredictability. Freedom. Carefree days. Those carefree days are long gone. Responsibility reigns now, thanks to the years that have aged me. Practicality has taken the place of adventure. Scheduled events and to-do lists make themselves welcome, kicking out the adrenaline and the unknown.

Who says adventure needs to be left in the days of our youth? Who says it is only found in faraway places? Adventure is a way of life; living for the unknown. It’s the practical ways of making ordinary days extraordinary. It’s the moments of spontaneity during a precisely planned out day. The passing glimpses of time that haven’t been reserved for another event, another task, another duty.

Adventure. It’s more than a place. It’s more than a specified date or time. It’s an outlook on life. A hopeful and renewed version of the world inhabited. A perspective of a day that portrays the unknown moments yet to be discovered. It’s those tiny moments that can remind us of those carefree summer days as children. It’s those passing glimpses of time that can remind us of the adrenaline we felt in innocence.

Adventure. It’s the idea that in a regular day, in a regular place, in a regular atmosphere, something can be found to make it memorable. To make it worthwhile. To make it new.
