during the last couple of days i've come across many blog posts and tweets about people sharing their word they chose for 2014. i've always liked the concept of this, a word guiding you through the year, a gentle nudge, a day-to-day reminder to keep up with or work on something without actually having to stick to a (sometimes) rigid resolution. i've had words i chose in the past (balance, mindful and rhythm), but skipped the last 2 years for whatever reason.
so for the past days i've mulled over ideas of what my word for this year might be. and a gentle nudge it is. after considering "wild", i entered "adventure" in the search option on pinterest. and i came across some awesome quotes, some of them i had pinned before, like this one:
"Adventure isn't all about climbing mountains or rowing oceans.
Adventure, in it's purest form, is simply a way of thinking."- Sean Conway
2014 won't be the year of epic travels (yet), climbing mountains or discovering jungles for our little family. but all the same, i want it to be a year of adventure. i want to say "yes" to building a tree house, "yes" to muddy boots, "yes" to art making in pajamas, "yes" to making a bean teepee, "yes" to playing over cleaning, "yes" to backyard camping, "yes" to collecting more sticks and rocks, "yes" to big writing projects, "yes" to picnics on the beach, "yes" to rolling in the grass and so much more...
this year, i will say "yes" to adventure!
will you, too???
