Today was a low adventure day. Woke up and felt I had my head in the clouds. Went to my normal office job, which is ho hum.
How do we navigate the low adventure days? Today, I just got through, but what I should have done, is taken maybe 20 minutes to find some time to write in my journal and remind myself about all the adventures that are out there waiting for me – to keep it current in my mind and keep my energy heading in that direction.
Today was more about buckling down, getting the day job done and then coming home to the side hustle. Yes, the side hustle; my get away car. I am putting all of my spare moments into creating a business that I will use to free myself and my family of the geographical and time restrictions we currently have. It’s not that I don’t want to work hard. I quite like it if it is something I enjoy. I just want to be able to do it on my own terms.
So today’s adventure was an internal one – mustering the energy and the determination to stick with getting the side hustle off the ground. At the moment I’ve hit a low point. I’m frustrated and feel like I’ll never get there. But this is where the adventurous spirit comes in. Adventure isn’t just about thrill seeking and joy riding. There is a good measure of perseverance in every adventure. Right now I’m focusing on putting one foot in front of the other, like the time I climbed Cotopaxi and felt the effects of altitude like led in my legs. I got there in the end, but that’s a story for another time…
