Are you an explorer in life?
I remember when I told my family that I was going to marry and move over 3,000 miles away. At first, they thought I was crazy but as the day came closer, they realized I was really going to to do it. My mom cried and my grandparents couldn’t let me go. My grandmother asked me one last time, “Why are you doing this?”
My response was simple. “I love him and I need a new adventure.”
See, ever since I was little, I’ve been curious about life and everything in it. In school, I bombarded teachers with unending questions. My thirst for knowledge and exploring life drove me to new experiences.
Meeting and marrying MR N was no different. He lived far away and offered me an opportunity of a fresh start, a new place where no one knew who I was or what my past entailed. So, I jumped at the chance and I’ve never been happier.
You know the old saying: Life is an adventure? Well, I love the quote above because it speaks to my heart. Life is an adventure but not everyone has an explorer’s heart. Some are content to stay near the shore. Not me, though. I want to get in my ship and discover new places and people.
Is your heart tugging for an adventure? Is your pirate inner self urging you to live it up a little?
Don’t ignore your inner explorer! Follow it and set a course for a grand adventure. You never know where life will lead you. Whether it’s a job change, moving to some faraway land or take that trip you’ve always wanted to go, map out what you want to do and then do it! Tell fear to walk the plank and set sail.
