This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 8
Today I had an adventure! Ok so I didn't climb Mt Everest or hike through the jungle but it was still an adventure by Google's definition:
"An unusual and exciting or daring experience. "
I did something I've been saying I'm going to do for ages; I went on a walk by myself!
l love hiking and being outside in nature. My dream is to go every weekend but I've been too nervous to go by myself so have only been going when my friend, Laura can come too. I've been saying for the last 6 months that I'm going to go alone but it just never happened.
Luckily, yesterday, as part of her 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge, Natalie Sisson set the challenge of going on an adventure and writing about it afterwards. This was the little nudge I needed to bite the bullet and finally go for my solo walk.
As the first of many to come, I didn't go too far. I walked for an hour and half exploring a big park close to my house. I found it hard to relax at first but once I got to this beautiful lake that all changed.
I felt really relaxed and appreciated the peace more that I would if I was with someone else. I can't wait to go again and venture further afield!
Today's adventure was the first tiny step towards my big dream of doing a long distance hike solo! Although I have a clear idea of where I want my adventure to lead to, adventures should be a huge part of the process of finding your direction.
The whole process is one big adventure made up of smaller everyday adventures. There's no way of knowing where you will end up, you've just got to step out of your comfort zone and give it a go!
What "unusual and exciting or daring" (for you) adventure could you challenge yourself to go on? Where might it lead you?
