Being Adventurous

To be adventurous does not necessarily mean you have to take part in high octane, adrenaline fuelled activities. For those who are naturally attuned to these activities it can be easy for them to do more of the same. Be it bungee jumping, sky diving, base jumping, rock climbing, white water rafting or extreme sports. Could you call it adventurous if you are going to do it anyway? If you are potentially putting your life at risk, then perhaps. Although that could be borderline (or completely) reckless.

It is doing things you wouldn’t normally do, that put you out of your ‘comfort zone’ at the risk of failing or even being ridiculed and told you cannot do it. Pursuits that you may not normally partake in, but may stretch you as a person. From visiting foreign or unfamiliar places, to writing a novel, poetry, drawing, mastering a musical instrument, public speaking, learning a foreign language. These can be adventures in themselves, if you are willing to take the risk and show to a wider audience your progress.

There can be, or most likely will be, times of rejection and disappointment, but if your heart is in it, you keep on pushing on through that pain and can come out a lot better for it. Giving up is easy, continuing the journey is hard.
