Forgotten Adventures – Take Caution as you enter the Attic

Last weekend, I undertook a home de-clutter project with my teenage girls as some indoor preparation for the coming Spring season. We parsed through the attic all afternoon over dust covered items awaiting twenty (20) years for our long forgotten rediscoverey. We came across items that reminded us of earlier memories from an different era in time – middle school sports objects, high school yearbooks, and family vacation photos. That afternoon’s activity reminded me of Johnny Saturday’s discovery in his attic – this old black leather journal. A journal, that is, that propells Johnny on adventures beyond his imigation – travelling through time while encountering a variety of challenges while making new relationships.

Some people say that life is a journey. I say life is an adventure!

An adventure, that you don’t not want to ignore with meaningless distractions. An adventure that is both purposeful and challenging, where you and only you will create.

With your adventure comes many by-products such as wealth, relationships, and health. Each one of these by-products contribute to your legacy. Leveraging each, you will choose to pass along leassons learned, wisdom, emotional support, needed financial assistance, and a personal example that may influence anothers life in a way that is immeasurable.

As you travel through the years in time and begin to look back at those events, memories, and objects, I hope you smile and experience true joy in your heart. Not for the succcesses or failures, but more so those you have positively influenced while successfully negotiated the hills, the valleys, and detours along the way.

Now, continue on and … Be Adventureous!
