I Must Be a Mermaid



If asked who'd be willing to jump off a high cliff or go sky diving or bungee jumping, I'm not the first person that comes to mind.  That kind of adventure doesn't excite or appeal to me in any way.  I've never really considered myself an adventurous person.  

Adventurous is defined as "willing to take risks or to try out new methods, ideas, or experiences".  I also saw it defined as "to cope with the new and unknown." 

Wait.

Maybe I'm more adventurous than I thought.

I see that I'm willing to take more risks and do things I've never done when it comes to pursuing my dreams.  I'm open to new ideas and styles.  I'm seeking new experiences.  And I'm willing to risk my own dreams if it means I'll help others because of it.

That's pretty darn adventurous. 

The truth is we don't know what God has in store for us but we can have no fear and trust His plan, His direction, and His timing... easier said than done, I know.  I don't want to live an ordinary life with boring stories about nothing really happening.  I want to experience the ups and downs and use the highs and lows to help others.  I want to make an impact.  I want to question the way it's always been and offer new perspectives on how it could be.  I want to be proud of the things I've done and those risks I've taken.  I want to inspire and make a difference.  I want to please God.  

I want to be... the adventurous me!
