Last year I did a 100 day adventure challenge. I was traveling for work a lot and it was starting to feel like the movie Groundhog Day. I decided I had to find some adventure every day to break up the routine.
This year, I have made an attempt to travel less. It’s hard on my family and makes return to “ordinary” life in small spurts quite difficult. What I’m finding though, is that ordinary life is even harder for me. I’m not really an “ordinary life” kind of girl. I didn’t day dream about wedding dresses or play house as a kid. I read maps and books. I wanted to know everything. I wanted to travel and be an astronaut. Instead, I began traveling the world and racing cars and became an artist.
Even though I have a life that resembles an ordinary life, I find it incredibly difficult. I don’t do well with routine. I know myself well enough to know that I need something to look forward to. If I’m not working towards something, I start to get stir crazy and very low. I’ve been struggling with this a lot. It’s not that I’m unhappy. I have no reason to be unhappy. I have a great life. I try to find joy in all the little things. I’m so grateful for every single person in my life. However, my life is enriched by experiences.
So, I’ve decided to start making the ordinary extraordinary. It doesn’t have to be grand or cost a lot of money. I just need something to break up my days. To make the present day stand out from the others. I’ll start with 30 days. Wanna join? Come along and find some adventures with me. Leave me your adventure in the comments. Maybe it’ll give me some ideas!
