Monthly Adventures

DISCLAIMER: There is a lot going on in the world right now. Lots to pray over. I’ve learned over the years that often times on-line is not the place to have those conversations. I would be talking at you rather then having a conversation. Thus, I am choosing to use this blog to focus on other things. If you’d like to talk with me about anything that is currently occurring (or anything else that you’d rather talk about), feel free to comment and we’ll set up a time to chat!

BLOG POST: I sat last week planning out my goals for 2021. I did this last year and had great success at getting things accomplished. As I was planning, an idea started to develop.

I started realizing that it’s easy for me to stay in my happy little comfort bubble. I go to work, I come home, I take care of my house, I go to bed to rest before doing it all again.

To combat this, I brainstormed some ways to push myself. I reached out to several friends and family members to share what they enjoy doing, what gives them life, or allows them to rest. Have I told you how amazing my family and friends are?!? I thought I’d be lucky to get maybe 12-24 good ideas. I just finished typing up all the ideas and I have 150 ideas!

I printed them off and put them into a jar (see above picture). I’m going to mix them all up and then pull one out at the beginning of every month. As long as it’s not seasonal, I’ll have to complete what I pull out. I have the entire month to complete the adventure.

Some of the ideas are outdoor adventures. Others are service oriented. Others are community based. Others are restorative or restful. I’m excited and a little nervous. I’m hoping to do some documentation of each adventure to share with those who suggested it. I’m also hoping that the Lord will use each of these adventures to grow me this year. I’m also hoping to share how the Lord shows up in each of these “adventures.”

May your 2021 be full of His presence and the growth that He desires for you!
