Do adventures need to be bigger and better than the last? Maybe I will fall into the trap of stepping up the challenge until the point when failure is inevitable. I hate failure, and that is why I am so damn determined to succeed.
An example of this is my recent and exciting attempt at my FIRST triathlon. I loved it, from the training to the race, and now I have booked a bigger one. Higher distances, open water swimming and already I am dreaming of that ultimate Iron Man, which will inevitably follow at some point in the future, or am I letting my dreams get ahead of what I am actually capable of?
I am no athlete. If anything I am an average kind of girl but my dreams are beginning to grow and I can't help but want to test myself. How far can I go, or how fast can I do it. I want to explore and discover a world that I have never seen before and enjoy every second of the journey along the way.
Its hard to know what I love more. Dreaming up new adventures or doing them. Adventure has become such and important part of my life that potentially the answer would be yes; I am addicted. I certainly couldn't think of life without that niggling idea of what I could do next.
Adventurer? Blogger? Triathlete? Speaker? Film maker? All the latest ideas that have started floating around in my subconscious. One thing I am certain of is that unless I try I will never know, what I am truly capable of.
