Adventure is beyond exploration because you learn different things and culture from different people.
When I toured Africa, I had every reason to learn more. People are so welcoming and great. There are great national packs, lakes, wild animals, and great people among others. Adventure gave me an opportunity to explore and learn new things. I have traveled many parts of the world and I have learnt to appreciate travel and adventure. You have everything to gain.
Instead of feeling like an explorer, we at times start to feel jaded or “worn down by life.” Instead of surrendering to what happens, we tend to cling to what we know from our experience, fearful of what the future might bring. We take things that happen to us very personally — the fact that your child is starting to flunk science must mean that you’re a bad parent; the fact that you and your spouse had yet another fight about your mother-in- law must mean your marriage is on the rocks.
An invitation to adventure: It’s a season of rejuvenation and renewal, so why not make a choice to live with that sense of curiosity and discovery? A standoff with your rebellious teenager could be seen as a new village you haven’t seen before. A failed relationship becomes an opportunity to explore a new part of the jungle you didn’t see on the map you’d been using. As spring has now sprung, I invite all of you to bring some of that adventurous spirit of discovery into your daily life.
