“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
I have a hard time with this concept most days. I have always had a bit of anxiety but after my son was born it tripled. I was scared of everything and was worried/fearful something would happen to him. I mean let’s be honest in this bat world we live in I still am but I handle it a bit better now. I still get anxiety when we are doing something on the fly because I feel unprepared but even if it is something we planned I also get no sleep the night before worrying about everything that can go wrong but instead of just cancelling plans or saying “Ya’ll go I will stay here.” I breathe through it and go cause I don’t want to miss the moments that I know I will cherish forever.
One day in the near future my precious boy (i.e. manchild) will venture out on his own and I won’t get to see him everyday so when there is a chance to spend a day with him soaking up our surroundings and listening to his crazy funny ideas and stories I don’t care how anxious it makes me I don’t hesitate to take the journey.
So this year he wants to do more adventures in the wilderness around our state and maybe even venturing into other states and that is what we are gonna do.
So get out and get some fresh air and have some unforgettable moments!
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” ~Helen Keller
