Say yes to the adventure, to the road never traveled.
When I was a kid, my family would embark on wondrous adventures. We would all pile into the Karman Ghia with the sole purpose of spotting ‘conichos’ (also known as rabbits). Click here for some fun facts about rabbits for kids.
In order to see the most amounts of rabbits, my Dad would find the most remote road he could find. Most times the roads were dirt, full of holes, and brought us to the most magical places. For a list of scenic drives in Connecticut, click here.
My little eyes would be peeled to the countryside searching for the elusive bunnies. Seeing one was sheer joy and would elicit a screeching sound from me with the very loud words, “Look! Over there!”
As I got older, I realized it wasn’t as important to see the rabbit (although it was always a thrill) as it was to be open to the adventure. This concept has served me well all throughout my life. There have been many times that I chose the road never traveled. My journey always began with
trepidation, much nervousness, and a giggle thinking about my new adventure.
So basically, I was excitedly terrified.
I really tapped into the adventurous energy during the times that I sold everything I owned and moved far away (I did this 3 times). People thought I was crazy, but I just knew that I was doing the right thing.
My adventurous spirit came into play again when I started my own business. Creativity was calling me, so I became a jewelry designer, life coach, and writer. Now, for someone as practical as myself, this was a huge leap each and every time. My practical mind would scream at me, “This makes no sense!” Yet, there were certainly times that I tried to talk myself out of my decision. Actually, it was daily in the very beginning.
I would then vividly remember how it felt to be on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere looking for a bunny.
What wonders would I see next?
I encourage all of us to hearken back to our younger days when the world was magical and opportunities were endless. Let’s tap into that adventurous energy and ask ourselves the question,
“What else is possible?”
Who knows, you may even see a bunny.
