Writer's Block

The USA is the place I was born. Canada is the place I was raised. Taiwan is the place in my heart.

Today I read an article in which defined adventure as:

A willingness to commit to an uncertain outcome with an open heart and an open mind.

As I read further, the author also talked about how adventure is about taking a leap into the unknown- which does not necessarily have to mean engaging in dangerous, death-defying feats, like scaling mountains, but how it is about feeling comfortable with the unknown, the uncertain.

Opportunities for adventure are around us every day- by making a change to one's routine, doing something completely differently, or learning something new.

This really resonated with me because I'd like to think that I take an adventurous approach to life- at least I try. I also find myself inspired by people who have an adventurous spirit.

Uncertainty is the gift of possibility. I have always tried to face challenges with confidence and this year I feel it is especially important to do so with a sense of purpose and mindfulness.
