When I stepped foot back onto this cold winter ground head all in a daze, Life began to swirl around me in a different sort of way. If Life, as Helen Keller says is a “daring adventure or nothing”, How was I going to live in that daily? The truth is, I really believe it is. My adventure lingers on always calling me forth, even while I am back to my stomping grounds. It is true, I was on the beach feeling the grit of the sand wear off and smooth down the rough edges of my soul. I felt the beach breeze run it’s fingers through my hair and loved the mess of it. But it only begins there. I take these soul imprints forward with me. The walks on the beach with my Creator an ever-present tryst in my memory.
I am now looking at the beautiful patterns, the art work the frost displays on my door and my adventure takes on a new face. We we are made for worthy pursuits, knowing that there is a deep sense of meaning to all that life brings. And I can not stop the pursuit of living life’s adventures when the weather changes. I have also changed with it, and living in that change and out of it presents a new experience all together, a “soul” adventure. So I unpack my recent adventure and I wear it in a new way, because parts of it are needed for the next one – and really, we are not made to sit around and wait for life to happen. We were made to explore a worthy pursuit. What’s your’s? I’d love to hear.
Happy New Year Adventures My Friends!
