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.
