Before you go clicking away to another adventure blog- hear me out. I’m just getting my bearings. It’s been years since I wrote anything. But maybe what I say will resonate with you. Maybe it will make you laugh. Or you’ll get inspired by something here. But, you might completely hate it. I haven’t written anything yet. Who knows? Maybe this blog will totally suck.
This blog is here for one reason. It’s here to help me make sense of my confusing life. It’s here to help me reason with the fact that I never really feel at home. Not anywhere for very long, anyway. I’m writing to make a deliberate effort to live in a more fulfilling way. To travel. To adventure. To grow. To explore. To love. To combat anxieties that tell me I’m not anything enough to live the life I absolutely want. And the anxieties that tell me not to write. Screw those anxieties. Financial anxieties, too. Screw it all. I just want more. I just want to fall in love in new ways. To live a life where my heart beats fast every day.
Like I said, this blog is here for one reason. It’s here because I want more out of this one chance I get at life.
As a wayfaring twenty-something dreamer who spent my post-college years drifting from job to job, place to place, never quite feeling satisfied I thought hey, maybe I’m not alone. Maybe you are like me. Maybe you, too, are dreaming of quitting your mundane job waiting tables and getting on a plane somewhere new and different. The idea is only to keep growing and learning from new experiences. Maybe I can construct an adventure blog that means something.
Maybe I’m just dreaming. But wherever I land, it feels good to be taking the leap.
