JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
This morning I woke up in my own bed and couldn't help but to ask myself...what's next?? I just got home from a long, dirty 3 days on the Mojave Trail with a great bunch of folks and it will probably take me at least that long to clean my Jeep, but...When the adventure bug bites, it changes you forever!
Adventure is a necessary part of our lives. When we don't seek adventure, we find ourselves doing all sorts of knuckleheaded and self destructive things. We look for distractions from our routine lives. We find ways to escape and express ourselves through behaviors aren't always leading us to healthy places. We need adventure, we need challenges and ways to feed our curiosity about the bigger picture here. It's only natural.
Dictionary.com defines adventure as an exciting or very unusual experience. So, the next time you crave adventure, skip the bar and take a pass on the over priced, unhealthy eating binge. Instead, try grabbing some friends and get outdoors for a while to see what's out there. You'll come back feeling refreshed, connected and ready to take on the world again.
