So this is post zero. The Boy with the Bear is a blog about my relationship to adventure. On this blog I will discuss my own personal struggles and successes in living a life of adventure. My primary goal will be to open the conversation with anyone who has ever dealt with the calling to do or see more. Let’s discuss how we can help each other overcome the boredom and mental clutter that comes with the everyday. Maybe we can take the leap together.
Prior to this I had been using this forum to create my writing habit. Success. Looking back that was and is now part of my day to day adventure. Now, I can start talking more consistently about a single topic. The fear of the calling was the topic of a few posts during my 31 Day writing challenge. It is clearly important to me. I have since refined it to this concept of the everyday adventurer.
It is my hope that throughout the life of this blog I will write about:
- Things I want to do.
- Why I haven’t done them.
- What it takes to do new things.
- What it felt like after I pushed through the fear and actually did them.
Currently I am fighting through the fear of posting this on a more public forum than I already have. I know I need to put myself out there, but being that vulnerable is spooky. But if you are reading this, that means that I pushed through that problem and am most likely pleased.
I am excited to go on this journey together, whoever you are! Now tell me, what have you always wanted to do, but have never had the courage?
