Adventure

February 13, 2018

 

For 2018, I decided to pick a “word of the year” in order to 1) set an intention for my upcoming year and 2) to have a word I can go back to for a reminder of what my intention is when I begin to lose sight of it. My word of the year for 2018…Adventure!

 

Why did I choose the word “adventure”? To remind myself that EVERYTHING I experience is part of my adventure, both the good and the bad. I think it is natural human tendency to feel sorry for ourselves when things don’t go our way. We experience a setback or an unexpected obstacle and are ready to throw in the towel because things got too difficult too quickly. I have lived much of my life thinking this way and have always perceived barriers or obstacles as “nuisances” that don’t serve me any purpose other than to piss me off. I have found, however, that this way of thinking is very counterproductive.

 

I chose the word “adventure” to constantly remind myself that everything I experience has a purpose in my life as long as I choose to see it this way. Sure, achieving success is amazing and is what I strive for, but how can I expect myself to experience success, especially long-term success, without first experiencing setbacks and difficulties along the way. It is how I learn, grow, and move forward. As the old, somewhat cliché, saying goes: “Sometimes you have to take one step back to move two steps forward.”

 

This brings me back to why I chose the word “adventure” as my focus for 2018. An adventure, in its truest sense, is a journey encompassing both ups and downs. It’s not really an adventure if all you were to experience was success after success without a few losses thrown in there. So why would I expect anything different out of my life?

 

By constantly gravitating back to my word of the year, “adventure”, I am constantly reminded that no matter what I am experiencing at any given moment, whether it be a success or a failure, that it is part of my journey and part of my adventure through life.
