“Adventure is an attitude, not a behavior.” ~ Luci Swindoll

In 2001 when I first heard this quote I never would have understood the impact it would have on life today. Twelve years ago I read it while I was riding the train from England to France and delightfully soaking up each moment of my study abroad program. In the following years I visited four foreign countries, lived in four different states, traveled extensively within the United States, taught High School students for six years, worked with refugees and sex-trafficking victims, spent hours volunteering in causes I am passionate about, and celebrated loudly and lived life with my amazing tribe and friendships

I loved my life and never would have expected that in the future I would become primarily bed-ridden and house-bound due to fighting advanced stage Lyme Disease and Cancer.


And I am learning to live the truth of the quote from above. 

As I read with joy the adventures of many in bloggy world (like Casey’s A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. blog!!) and have friends who are traveling to the ends of the earth (literally) I am finding once again that adventure is an attitude and that you can marry adventure no matter what your health status is, your financial ability to travel, the lack of resources you may have, the detours of your journey, your marriage status, your regrets, or your amount of vacation days you have from work. LIFE is truly the adventure and no matter the seeming roadblocks you can live a life FULL of adventure and joy.



I think adventure starts in our minds and then overflows like a beautiful waterfall to our hearts. I am learning to live a new adventure every day and share some of my stories on my blog, Caravan Sonnet. Sometimes adventure is following a dream that we have had for a long time, a path that we were once afraid to take, taking a risk, giving to others in need, or reading a blog that inspires us to meet someone new, support those who are reach out to new friendships, start a new job, or simply to have the courage to take the road less traveled. *smiles*
