Part 3: Choose Adventure

You can dream all day long, but if you don’t do anything to pursue your dreams they will never be a part of your reality.
 
But I want your dreams to become your reality, and I hope you do too! 
 
I want you to dream big for your life. I want you to pursue your dreams and deepest desires. I want you to choose adventure every day in pursuit of the life you deeply desire and love. And I want you to live the life you love while growing into the woman you are meant to be. This is why Leavenworth Adventures exists!
 
So how do you choose adventure? What does this mean and what does this look like?
 
You start by being intentional.

Be Intentional in Pursuit of the Life You Deeply Desire and Love

I’ve been using the word intentional a lot lately, sometimes when talking with other people, but mostly to direct my focus on what is most important in my life and to stay focused on where I am going.
 
To create a life of adventure in pursuit of the life you deeply desire and love, you must be intentional: purposeful and deliberate.
 
  1. You must be intentional about dreaming and allow yourself to dream big. You have to know what your hopes and dreams are, what you want out of life and who you want to be before you can make choices and decisions leading you in that direction. If you haven’t already, learn how to do this in Part 1: Allow Yourself to Dream Big!
  2. You must be intentional about your attitude and cultivate an adventure perspective. You have to see life as an adventure and see every day as an opportunity to choose adventure. If you haven’t already, learn how to do this in Part 2: Cultivate an Adventure Perspective.
  3. And last, but definitely not least, you must be intentional about your decisions and choose adventure every day.

Be Intentional About Your Decisions --> Choose Adventure

Choose Adventure:  An intentional decision to have adventures, explore new areas, participate in new activities, and fully experience your life and the world around you.
It’s an intentional choice, a decision you make every day where you say yes to adventure, yes to exploring new areas, yes to participating in new activities, yes to fully experiencing your life and the world around you.
 
You either seek the adventure in pursuit of the life you want, or you choose to embrace the adventure when the opportunity presents itself. 
 
When your dreams and desires are in front of you and you see the opportunity for adventure, you take it. You decide that pursuing your dreams are more important than not, and definitely more important than your fears.
"May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears." - Nelson Mandela. Shared by Leavenworthadventures.com

Choosing Adventure is an Adventure

Just like life, this journey of pursuing the life you deeply desire and love is in itself an adventure. 
 
Just like life, adventures will have ups and downs, and good times and bad. Sometimes you will walk away with an exciting or epic story and sometimes you walk away with deep sadness or disappointment. 
 
To choose adventure, you choose to embrace all of the ups and downs, and the good and the bad.
 
Because at the end of the day, it is more important that you chose adventure in pursuit of the life you deeply desire and love than doing nothing at all, and it is more important that you chose to pursue the life you were meant for.

DISCLOSURE - Let me make myself very clear!

Choosing adventure does NOT mean you say yes to EVERY adventure. It does NOT mean you step out and do something dangerous that is way above your expertise level and area of knowledge. This is NOT about taking extreme and dangerous risks.

Choosing adventure IS about being intentional and saying yes to adventures that will get you where you want to be in life and help you become who you want to be.

It’s Your Choice, Choose Adventure Today!

Today and the future are yours, but you must take the first step in pursuing the life you deeply desire and love.

You will never have 100% control of your life, but you have 100% control of the choices and decisions you make. It is up to you to create the life you deeply desire and love. It is up to you to be intentional about how you use your time, who you hang out with, what activities you participate in, what jobs/career you pursue, etc.

It is up to YOU to choose, no one else!

Other people can tell you what they think or how they feel, but at the end of the day, you are responsible for your actions, your choices, and ultimately your life.
 
So what will it be? Will you choose adventure in pursuit of the life you deeply desire and love?
 
Oh, I hope so!
 
Join me in being intentional with your life and choose adventure today,
