Pep Talk

Experiencing Your Life As An Adventurer

Experiencing Your Life As An Adventurer

"Life is an adventure" is a common phrase. It sounds like the perfect pep talk, but the more I think about this phrase, the less I like it. It makes it seem as if we're passively along for the ride. Life is making decisions to send us here and there, and we're witnessing it unfold in front of us.

The truth is, we mostly get to choose our adventures so long as we choose to be adventurous. 

Gloves off!

Gloves off!

When was the last time you made a mistake or a poor decision, either in or out of a relationship? Do you remember how you reacted to disappointing yourself?

Were you rough on yourself? Did you punish yourself? Deluge yourself with a lot of negative self-talk? Begin to feel unworthy of good things? Or deserving of bad things?

Are You Content With Your Life?

Are You Content With Your Life?

When was the last time you desperately wanted something, worked for it, prayed for it, got it, was super excited about your victory, then became unhappy with it?

I'm talking about the dream job you landed that's now hard to get up for in the morning, the home you bought that always needs a new fix, the sweet baby you dreamed of that refuses you one full nights sleep, and a relationship that you were so excited about in the first days that turned dull.
