Dreaming up adventures is easy, making them happen is relatively strait forward, doing them can be a challenge, but the hardest decision by far, is when to admit defeat.
When I look at this picture it takes me strait back to that moment. The emotion, the hardship and the adventure. I was uncomfortable, really really uncomfortable. If there had been an easy option for getting out at that moment, I may well have taken it.
There is a thin invisible line which separates adventure, from misadventure. When your playing with the elements and tickling the edge of your comfort zone, you can stumble over this line without any warning. Consequences can be serious, but the learning can be invaluable.
This week I have found myself stumbling over the misadventure line more than once.
Having laughed sooooo hard at some of Unlipped Adventures Cartoons (my most favourite Blog to read). I got inspired.
Whilst driving my bus, I sometimes run out of serious things to think about. Soo I ended up laughing at myself for all the funny places I have taken a wash. Mainly inspired by my not so bashful friend Bekx, my wash buddy in Corsica.
Now don't panic! I wont be giving up my day job, whether that be as a bus driver (which I am terrible at) or kayak coach. Buuuut.....I do feel it has potential for a documentary tho.
Fear of the unknown is natural, and recently looking at my blank diary for this coming summer the anxiety set in. I have been making a lot of changes recently, wanting new challenges in deferent places, and the uncertainty of freelance work is at the forefront of my mind. I may even go as far as saying I was stressing about it!
When in actual fact, this is such a negative view point. Surly having an open diary is opening you up to new opportunities. Having the freedom to say YES, when the right one comes along.
