Throughout your life, you'll embark on new adventures.

Adventures abound!

There are so many adventures to experience in life.

Sometimes, you'll meet people, discover passions, and explore new destinations.

Other times, you might lose people or forget where you want to be.

Whether those times include happy or sad occasions, they're still adventures.

In the grand scheme of things, all those adventures give you the opportunities you need to learn skills, grow as a person, and build a better life.


Travel and life adventures have a lot in common.

Think about how you travel.

When you go on a trip, you probably don't just walk out of your home empty-handed. (That style of travel has its own merits, but that's not what we're talking about here.)

You pack the things you want to bring on your trip. Whatever you can fit into suitcase can help you feel more comfortable while you are away, but it may not be quite as comfortable as being home.

Embarking on a new life adventure is no different.

You can pack a few things to help you during your adventure, but you'll never feel completely comfortable. That's called getting outside your comfort zone, and it's a beautiful part of life that is not to be missed.

As with any adventure, prepare by gathering a few things.

To make your transition through a new journey feel a little less rocky, you can carry a few things with you.

1. Bring your sense of adventure

Explore beyond your daily surroundings and be open to the adventure that is your life right now.

2. Carry confidence

Find strength in the knowledge that you can navigate your way through anything. You've done it successfully up until now, and you'll do it again in your newest adventure.

You've done it before, and you'll do it again.

3. Own an open mind

Be open to all kinds of adventure, big and small. New opportunities can arise from anywhere and at any time. Mentally prepare yourself to say "yes" to opportunities and growth.

4. Take a deep breath

...and dive in!

Need a boost of encouragement?

Consider it from this perspective:

Life change isn't always easy.

But you know what's worse than going through a challenging life change?

Never changing at all.

Humans are dynamic and adventurous. You're built to withstand challenges and you're wired for success.

Venture forth. Your adventure awaits.

    I love this! Life is all about exploring, so be willing to take the adventure (and have what you need at the same time!)
