To Adventure More

Adventure is something I always crave. I enjoy being somewhere new and seeing different things. I love being on the road or catching a flight. Making lasting memories and experiencing things is something I highly value.

Unfortunately, it isn't always possible to take off somewhere for a week when you have responsibilities (ugh) like work & school and finances to consider. One thing that I have come to know about myself, though, is that even if it is just something small, I need to have an adventure every month or two. It usually happens when I feel too entrenched in my day-to-day routine and know that I need to get out of it to refresh & recharge.

With all the changes, adjusting, and stress I have been experiencing these past few months, it is time for a small adventure. I would absolutely love to head off to New York or something like that, but that is definitely not doable at the moment! So, we are instead going to take a day trip to Yosemite to explore in nature and take lots of photographs. It is something so simple, but I am really looking forward to it! I think it is just what we both need--to unplug and leave responsibilities behind even if it is just for the day.

Planning this mini getaway has put the idea of adventure at the forefront of my mind lately. It is something I need and it is nice to understand that about myself. I am a happier, more productive person when I give myself that time away and time to immerse myself in something new and purely be in that moment.

With that, I want to make it a goal to adventure more, no matter if the adventure is big or small. There is much to see and experience in this big world, and I want to make the most of every moment.

What are your thoughts about adventure? Is it something you need too?

I'm excited to share photos from our mountain getaway!
