Yes, well, hello again. And happy Friday! It totally feels 0% like a Friday, but I know what that means. This relaxing and lovely vacation is almost over and soon I’ll be headed back into real world land with the rest of you. Hooray for working and doctoring and eventually some school too. One really cool thing that’s happened though is that I’m actually journaling! Which, if you recall, means I am hacking away at those resolutions.
And one word has come up in my journal, my blog, my Twitter, and my life in general over and over and OVER again. ADVENTURE. Say it. Go on, totally say it out loud right this second. Feel how it is in your mouth…all the syllables, everything. Imagine it written in fancy wedding invitation script when you’re saying it. Feels good, don’t it?
You can say it like Russell too. <3
If you’ve been reading, you know that Gabby Bernstein’s books have been on my radar. And a lot of the talk was about things coming to you, especially through journaling. And I think, my friends, I have found a way to live this year. I think this will shift my viewpoints of challenging times and make my brain a lot easier to deal with. I think it will also make those times that are super exciting even MORE exciting. More exciting because they are a part of my life and I adventured to get there. I did something to get that thing accomplished. I didn’t just sit there and wait for adventure to fall into my lap.
Will I fall INTO somebody’s lap? Yes probably.
I’m also a Nervous Nelly, thankyouverymuch Dad-genes. I’ll tell you that right now. Nine times out of ten, I am VERY good at talking myself out of doing something because I’m not good enough. But I NEED to stop doing that, especially with any professional opportunities that come my way this year (e-mail in my inbox, I’m looking at you). Skiing? AS I’M WRITING THIS I’m saying that I probably won’t be good so it will be a waste of money.
But it’s an adventure, is it not? It also so happens to be on my resolution list. So it wouldn’t be very fair for me to ignore it, now would it?
It’s also conveniently on my #fitnessbucketlist!
So, here we are, at the fourth day in January. You’re probably going to see my new hashtag springing up all over the place. You are totally welcome to use it too. I don’t run the laws of Twitter. In fact, I’d love to see you use it! Depending on how many people are interested, I would totally dig posting a bunch of them so we can inspire other people. But that’s me dreaming big again!
You heard it here first! 2013 is officially #adventureyear!
Now get out there and adventure!
What’s your theme for the year? Does #adventureyear sound like something that tickles your fancy?
