As we headed north in the WA rain for our 2 hour road trip we all questioned our decision to go see a few tulips spread across some field. But only after a short time did I forget about the rainy drive and enjoyed good conversation and laughs with my two gals! The fact that they were willing to drive a few hours, without question, to see a tulip festival they’d heard nothing about was a great start to me!
One topic we chatted over along our drive was adventure; seeing the sites around us to feel more settled and connected to the place you live. I’ve thought about it some more and I believe that step into our adventurous side can be two-fold. One, for exploring the newness around you, whether you’ve lived somewhere for months or even years, there’s always something new to be explored! Once you’ve experienced that piece of history or created some of your own, you’re instantly connected to that place with the memory you’ve made.
Two, for those you choose to explore the unknown with. That in itself can be an adventure! Looking back on my life, I can confidently say I’ve had a few adventures, especially in the last few years, and none of which I regret. I believe without taking that first step outside my comfort zone, I would not have the wonderful memories I have with those special people who’ve come into my life. Without that leap of faith, who knows what and who I would’ve missed out on.
But don’t just take my word for it, you be the judge. Stop and smell the tulips for yourself … 🙂
