The Definition of Adventure (Two Year Anniversary #1)

an exciting or unusual experience
a risky undertaking

a remarkable and exciting experience

By definition adventure means an exciting experience. Something that includes risk, but is remarkable and unusual and, potentially, worth it

Adventure, to me, is an experience that is exhilarating, crazy, maybe a bit intimidating, and in the end, a maker of great memories. 

Adventure is new places and new people and new things. 

Adventure is climbing mountains and airplane flights and road trips and camping under the stars and sailing and making new friends. 

Adventure is CampNaNoWriMo for my first time next month and writing and reading new books. 

Adventure is chasing God and living our dreams with Him and for Him. 

Adventure is doing things that stretch you and make you a little uncomfortable - because that's when we grow. When things are uncomfortable.

I think adventure is often stereotyped to only include the outdoor activities like climbing mountains and hiking through the rain forest and jet skiing. (Random list? Maybe...) But I think maybe adventure is all that, but it also comes in smaller packages sometimes.

Adventure means different things to different people because everyone is different and unique. Everyone has different lives and different circumstances. Adventure can simply be stepping out of your comfort zone, out of the normal routine of life, and doing something that excites you.

LIFE is an adventure, guys. Let's live it to the fullest. 

And all those adventures that come along the way? Those are fantastic too.

A few of mine:

Jumping off cliffs into the ocean.
Rock climbing.
Repelling off a bridge. (My older bro, Jesse, was the instigator. I was maybe 8 or 9 and I was scared. BUT Jesse repelled down with me, so I ended up being okay. ;))
Swimming in crystal clear water over tropical fish.
Road tripping (Mt. Rushmore, guys. It's so intricate and beautifully done. Enough said.)
Jumping off a waterfall. (I DID THIS.)
Going to the Winter Jam concert.

What is the craziest, most exciting thing YOU have ever done? I wanna know...
