The Adventure Challenge – Day 1

In an attempt for accountability, self-preservation, and for the hell of it, I’ve decided to start a 100 Day Adventure Challenge. This is what Break the Rules is all about: Living Big.

I’ve debated a bit about which direction to take my blog. For now, this seems to be what I need, so that’s what it will be. I have set a 100 day challenge before me to find adventure every day. Adventure can be anything from taking a different way to work or striking up a conversation with a stranger at a coffee shop. It could be tackling a fear like jumping out of a plane. The point is to break up the mundane and live just a little bit bigger. Wanna play?

For day 1, I pulled over along side the highway for a trail I saw. It was St. Louis Canyon in Illinois. I had never heard of it, but needed a break from being in the car for 3 hours. It was pouring down rain, but I decided I didn’t care. It was totally worth it. Here is what I found!

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
