Women are the mistresses of multitasking. Work. Family. Home. Obligations come at us from every angle. Sometimes we feel like we are never going to catch up. We feel like we are going to live the rest of our lives reacting, instead of acting.
Fixing, instead of building.
Struggling, instead of exploring.
We know self care is important, but we feel guilty taking a walk by ourselves instead of catching up on email. Or soaking in the tub instead of cleaning the kitchen. With even these simple snippets of self-care feeling so out of reach, the adventures we truly seek, those heart pumping, adrenaline fueled adventures we had in our youth seem a thing of the past.
And we miss those feeling of adventure!
It’s not that the urges are gone, its just that we’ve lost touch with our adventurous side. Maybe we feel we are too old. Too mature. Too busy. Too many obligations taking care of others.
But you are never too old for adventure and certainly never too mature.
Even the busiest of schedules need to accommodate curiosity seeking in order for our lives to feel complete. Stop putting off adventure seeking. Later is never going to come. Life is never going to get easier. The time for adventure is now! When we take care of our thirst for adventure, we can be a better parent and a better partner. Kids never do what we tell them to do, they do what we do.
Let’s show our daughters how to live an amazing kick-ass life.
Let’s show our sons what a strong, confident happy woman looks like.
It can seem like such an impossible idea, such a lofty goal. But with a few tweaks to both your schedule and priorities, you can find those adventures. Perhaps you have a larger, more life changing adventure in mind. Let me be your tour guide.
Well behaved women rarely make history. Let’s misbehave together.
