In my Newsletter have been sharing about the adventures I had over the last couple of weeks with my brother. Beforehand I was asked are you going to be taking time off to spend with him?

Yes, absolutely created that space to spend every minute possible that he is on this side of the security gates at the airport! And that we did!
I have written in previous newsletters about creating space, and how it is a pillar to living an authentic life. For you, it may not be adventures, you may want to be creating space for something else in your world, it may be creativity, study, laughter, new friendships or your relationship. It can be whatever you want more of in your world.

Consciously carving out time to bring that aspect in, can help us to benefit more from it, as well as helping to make those changes more sustainable.

For my brother and I, the two weeks were absolutely about adventures, and got us thinking about how we can lose our sense of adventure or adventure itself from our lives due to society’s pressure and expectations, a world that has us focusing on do, do, doing. It got me thinking about the importance of bringing it back in, in whatever way that looks like. It doesn’t need to be big road trips or trips abroad, it really can be about changing up our every day.

On his way back to the UK earlier this week, Ed shared with me a quote from The Hobbit:

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to…”

Not to disagree with Gandolf(!) but my response was – is it more dangerous to stay inside that door and to never go out?

Later that day I heard a quote from Paulo Coelho,

“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it’s lethal”.

Yup. That.

Whether it’s for the variety, to break up the humdrum, the benefits of getting outside, the overcoming of challenges, the sense of accomplishment, to move our body, to give us evidence of our worth, our enoughness, those yummy dopamine hits, to step out of our comfort zone or to give us stories to tell…. I feel adventures have a lot going for them!

Bilbo Baggins “I’m going on an adventure…”.

Is it time for you to include adventures in your life too on whatever scale feels doable for you?

If your answer is a resounding yes, or even a quiet yes, or even a maybe-possibly, or even a ‘not sure about adventures, but I want something to change,’ then why not book in a call, and let’s have a chat about what could be changed in your world to get from where you are at to where you want to be.
