If you read the last issue of my Life Notes inspirational newsletter or if you caught my blog posts in January, you know that adventure is on my mind this year.
Adventure is my theme word for 2016 in fact. But since it’s easy to forget a theme word as the year goes along, I thought June, the mid-point of the year, would be a good time to go a little more in-depth with it here on the blog.
So here is an acrostic of ideas and avenues for adventure—an adventure booster so to speak. Even if adventure is not your own personal theme word for the year, maybe you’ll find something here to incorporate into your life this summer. No time like the summer for adventure, right? Enjoy!
Ask someone to join you in trying out a new restaurant or ice cream shop.
Drive to a familiar destination by a new-to-you route.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen, a special needs camp, or other outreach for those in need.
Educate yourself on a topic that interests you.
Notice the amazing beauty and creativity of God’s ever-changing sky each day.
Travel to a place you’ve always wanted to visit.
Unwind with a new-to-you book and a different variety of chocolate, coffee, or tea.
Risk a physical challenge that will push you out of your comfort zone or test your limits.
Enter a contest that spurs you to excel at one of your talents or abilities.
So here is the challenge: If an idea here caught your eye, determine now to make it your next adventure. It’s time to get out there and do something new!
“I will sing a new song to you, O God . . .” Psalm 144:9a
