How Serious an Adventurer Are You?

Seriously Dedicated Adventurer & Pooch

If Only

How many times have you heard someone say how, if only they had such-and-such and opportunity, then they wouldn’t waste it? No indeed, they’d grab it by the horns and give it all they’ve got.



Yes But

When it comes to it, so many of us humans say one thing … but do another. Oh-so-often there’s some obstacle preventing us from grabbing that opportunity, checking it out, turning it upside down and looking at it from another angle. All this kind of attitude does is dilute the adventure. This kind of attitude waters the adventure down to some insipid, tasteless soup.

Yes but, I can’t because the kids are in school (how many times have I heard that one?!)

Yes but, it’s easy for you; life’s different for me.

Yes but, it’ll be a lot of hard work.

Yes but, what if it doesn’t work out?

Agreed, all of these “Yes Buts” are the stuff of responsible individuals.

However, the adventurers amongst you will move beyond the “Yes-Buts”.

The adventurers amongst you will choose your direction and explore ways of achieving it. Yes, I use the word explore as that’s exactly what’s required when it’s time to move out of your comfort zone and try something else.  Creativity is called for.

Can You Imagine?

Can you imagine how difficult it was to distract this little dog of mine away from the mole hill?

She was determined. Are you?
