A Happy Giveaway: The Adventure Log


I normally share a round-up of happy links on Friday, however I have something better to share with you today.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about The Adventure Log. I shared a photo of my Adventure Log on Instagram, and a staff member from Word Notebooks sent me a message and asked if I’d be interested in giving away a set of journals. I said yes! Today, I’m giving away two sets of Adventure Logs to two lucky winners.

To participate in the giveaway, post a comment below and tell me how you cultivate a sense of adventure in your everyday life. In 24 hours I will choose the winner using random.org.

If you’re reading this via email, please visit rowdykittens.com, and leave a comment at the bottom of this post.

A big thanks goes to Word Notebooks for their generosity!

With gratitude,

P. S. The giveaway is closed. The winners are Carrie and Teresa. Congratulations! I’ll be in touch via email!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Tonia May 29, 2015, 11:33 am

      I love new adventures. About a year ago I got a fortune cookie that said “say yes today” and now when someone invites me to do something that I normally would have tried to squeeze out of I say “yeah!” Before I have a chance to think on it! I have had some amazing adventures and met awesome people I normally wouldn’t have!

  • Tamsen May 29, 2015, 5:23 am

    I’d love to try out one of these adventure logs. Every day, I try to look at things the way my boys do, with new eyes and a sense of wonder. To them, the world is one big adventure just waiting — it’s refreshing to think that way.

  • Laura T May 29, 2015, 5:27 am

    How nice! I never thought of myself as an adventurer, but I have been trying to push myself to do new things, which I guess is a bit of an adventure!

  • Alisa May 29, 2015, 5:37 am

    Take a different route home, turn left instead of right, try new food, ask more questions and plan for long-term travel. Fun!

  • Lynzey May 29, 2015, 5:41 am

    Since having my son, I try to do something new everyday (even if it’s just kiwi fruit for the first time or showing him a flower).

  • Anzi May 29, 2015, 5:42 am

    I get a sense of adventure everyday from watching my little daughter who finds wonders in all things around her.

  • Kerry May 29, 2015, 5:45 am

    These days a sense of adventure is pretty easy – I hair moved to a new city in a new country so everyday is an adventure. To keep that feeling alive, I try to talk to at least 1 stranger a day.

  • Alison D. May 29, 2015, 5:46 am

    I try to say Yes more than no. This approach makes for some new adventures!

  • JB McCauley May 29, 2015, 5:51 am

    Everyday I take a walk by the lake, I look online at what other people are doing for their adventures, and I like to look at maps and hiking books.

  • Gina May 29, 2015, 5:54 am

    I try to go outside each day with my 4 year old. We explore parks, our backyard, and any areas in nature to instill a bit of adventure into our everyday living!

  • Paula May 29, 2015, 5:56 am

    Visiting new places, including places close to home. Seeing everyday things in a new way through my camera lens!

  • Perpetua May 29, 2015, 6:03 am

    I’m generally a creature of habit so I start with little things, like taking a different route to somewhere I’ve been to multiple times before or trying out a new coffee shop or eating a food I’d never thought to try before because it sounds ‘weird.’

  • Kira May 29, 2015, 6:08 am

    Dear Tammy.
    I have been following your blog for years and have been tremendously inspired to lead a more intentional life. That intention is cultivated through journaling, writing and photography.
    I start my days by meditating and identifying my most important task. When those tasks are finished it leaves me with time to explore my lovely city of Aarhus and the nature in and around it. There is always an adventure right around the next corner. At the moment my favorite thing to do is grab my boyfriend’s hand and set out on an evening stroll. With no itinerary we just walk around, watch the city unfold and document it with our phones. We have discovered the most amazing places such as urban gardens, abandoned playgrounds and striking architecture. These small adventures makes us fall in love with our home all over again – and with each other.
    xx, Kira.

  • Amy May 29, 2015, 6:09 am

    Having a sense of wonder about the world is part of the child that never died! With that childlike perspective and an open mind/heart, it’s easy to find adventure, even in the mundane!

    That being said, my big adventure at this point in my life is figuring out how to build my own tiny house. Everyday is met with new challenges and “adventures!”

  • Tammy May 29, 2015, 6:11 am

    My everyday sense of adventure comes through my daughter. At 7 she is so interested in learning about everything, that even a morning drive to school turns into an adventure as we discuss the landscape and people around us.

  • Sandra May 29, 2015, 6:13 am

    What a lovely giveaway. I tried to purchase a trio of Adventure Logs online, but the postage far surpassed the cost of the actual logs – like double the amount. I don’t know why. So I didn’t order them.
    Thank you for the chance of winning one here!

    • Word. Notebooks May 29, 2015, 8:12 am

      Hey Sandra,

      Where were you looking to have them shipped to? Let’s try to get some Adventure Logs to you! Email us at [email protected].

  • Sheena May 29, 2015, 6:14 am

    I live my life with no regrets! Growing up, my parents were the typical urban parents. The most of an adventure we’d ever have was going to our yearly family reunion which was nothing but a cookout or driving around the neighborhood to see the Christmas lights. I had no idea if I had a thirst for adventure until I sought them myself! Now my family finds it hard to believe that I’m a white water rafting, kayak paddling, parasailing, organic garden growing, southern belle! But my first time I sought out an adventure was back in my college biology lecture…I bought a solo ticket to London (later buying another ticket to Paris), which was my first airplane ride ever! I embrace life and seek to have a better understanding of the world daily!

  • Dylan Case White May 29, 2015, 6:14 am

    A sense of adventure is not something you soy chai cultivate as you tap into because adventure is merely a part of existence. Settling, that’s what is really cultivated, a sense of complacency in the mundane and monotonous routines and luxuries. Adventure is as simple as turning off your TV, putting down your phone, walking out your front door, or simply making eye contact with someone–pushing your limits and growing, realizing that you should really never stop.

    • Dylan Case White May 29, 2015, 6:17 am

      Spelling error please remove xx

  • Amanda May 29, 2015, 6:16 am

    I take a different way to where ever I’m going as often as possible. My children and I call them urban adventures and they love to go with me! One of our favorite sayings is “we can hike that!” as we pass new places on our rides.

  • Dylan Case White May 29, 2015, 6:16 am

    A sense of adventure is not something you so much cultivate as you tap into, for adventure is merely a part of existence. Settling, that’s what is really cultivated. A sense of complacency in the mundane and monotonous routines and luxuries that we collectively buy into as a society and dream is the antithesis of adventure. Adventure is as simple as turning off your TV, putting down your phone, walking out your front door, or simply making eye contact with someone–pushing your limits and growing, realizing that you should really never stop.

  • Sarah Evanschwartz May 29, 2015, 6:17 am

    i let my three small children pick activities and take the lead several times a day. This takes me places and into games I never would have thought about myself. Yesterday we turned a hallway into an art gallery and had an “opening” party with entrance tickets. Joy.

    • Robyn May 29, 2015, 8:33 am

      This is so precious and adorable!

  • Sarah Evanschwartz May 29, 2015, 6:19 am

    I let my children pick activities several times a day. This takes me in unexpected directions frequently. And no one knows adventure like young children do! They can turn the mundane into memories

  • Cynthia May 29, 2015, 6:20 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure in my everyday life my enjoying the little things and maintaining a sense of wonder. I frequently play tourist in my own city, but also grab at the chance to visit somewhere new!

  • Katy May 29, 2015, 6:21 am

    My word this year has been ‘explore’ and I’ve been doing my best to live that word in all kinds of ways: exploring inwardly, exploring my surroundings, doing things I might not otherwise do. This summer I hope to do as much adventuring as I can…camping, canoeing, trying new things and going new places.

  • E May 29, 2015, 6:21 am

    My sense of adventure is being a stay at home mom. Everyday is different and for sure an adventure.

  • Jessica May 29, 2015, 6:23 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure everyday by going out to my garden. My nightly watering routine lets me notice that cool things are happening when I’m not watching!

  • Gigi May 29, 2015, 6:24 am

    Thanks for the giveaway! I cultivate adventure by approaching everything with whole-hearted passion.

  • Carol May 29, 2015, 6:24 am

    I do my best to follow inspiration when it strikes – there’s energy around inspiration that fades as time passes.

  • michelle y May 29, 2015, 6:25 am

    I make mental and written notes of the little moments of “daily euphoria” (the smell of tomato leaves on my hands, the hum of bees in the catmint…) – a sensory adventure is pretty great, even if I’m not travelling far and wide.

  • liza May 29, 2015, 6:30 am

    i ride my pony at least three days a week. The area i ride lends itself to automatic adventures. When i rode yesterday i ran into a bull and his harem, in 10 years riding in that area that was a first, and so every ride naturally lends itself to new adventures. i also take an active roll in planning out trips to visit national parks hauling my horse and trailer with my girlfriends to the national parks. Finally i sign up for weekend adventures hiking and camping w/other women.

  • Pat Zyduck May 29, 2015, 6:32 am

    I live by the motto “Put down the map and get wonderfully lost!” Either on my bike, in the car, or by foot, I try hard to get lost as often as possible. That’s when the adventure begins.

  • Margie W May 29, 2015, 6:35 am

    I look for ways to connect with new people and animals.

  • Judy S. May 29, 2015, 6:36 am

    I like to change up a recipe, try a new food, take a different route to work, explore the library looking for a different author to read. Then there are the big adventures such as planning a vacation to a spot we have never been before.

  • tracie eastman May 29, 2015, 6:36 am

    How do I cultivate adventure in everyday life? That’s a tough one. Everyday is an adventure. Being a new grandmother, a parent of young adults, going back to school, joining my friends at sca events, playing a new social game & random interesting people in the supermarket or dunkin donuts that would make good fodder for a novel character… Just getting to work is an adventure. Taking a beginner’s mind approach towards life and being less judgmental always provides an adventurous surprise.

  • Tisha May 29, 2015, 6:37 am

    I try to live everyday to the fullest by remembering that we are not guaranteed to be around for a certain length of time. You never know what day might be your last. Don’t wait til tomorrow to tell someone you love them – you might not have the chance!

  • Raven May 29, 2015, 6:38 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure by attempting to try something new each day!

  • Tawnya May 29, 2015, 6:38 am

    I have a pre-teen son. Adventure is pretty easy around here! And lots of family exploring time.

  • Josh V. May 29, 2015, 6:39 am

    Each day nature inspires me to get outside, plan hikes, and go running.

  • Emily May 29, 2015, 6:45 am

    Seeing the world through the eyes of my two and a half year old son colors every adventure in a new light. . We decide together what our adventure will be each day, but the sense of excitement and wonder in every tiny detail, gives the adventure a life of its own.

  • Nik Mabry May 29, 2015, 6:45 am

    I’d love to record all my new adventures. I try to live everyday as if I didn’t know what the societal expectation are. Who needs shoes? Why not take an impromptu train ride west? Why not eat ice cream for breakfast? And as a teacher, I try to pass my adventurous (albeit unconventional spirit) on to my students.

  • lisa valinsky May 29, 2015, 6:50 am

    I write in a journal and go for daily walks to get myself thinking about things I’d like to do. I also love to explore our area, wherever we live, and visit new places.

  • Jamie Speed May 29, 2015, 6:55 am

    I like little adventures with my kids, always trying to have fun with them wherever, whenever like pushing them fast in a grocery cart or looking at bugs with them.

  • Holly R. May 29, 2015, 6:57 am

    What a great idea! I am good at recording my everyday adventures (which may be a walk at lunch to take in the flora and fauna around me or getting kids to all the places they need to be), but I record these things in multiple places. I have a journal for each of my kids to record thoughts. Then there’s my daily notebook where I jot down ideas, and sometimes I throw notes and thoughts into a journaling app. I would love to focus my thoughts into a single notebook that would be small enough to go with me anywhere. It would also help me see more of the small, daily routine as adventure instead of a checklist of tasks to complete. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Kate May 29, 2015, 7:01 am

    As a teacher of 4 and 5 year olds my students constantly remind me to be adventurous!! They have no fear but a great sense of wonder and awe at the many adventurous escapades that entice them each day. I try to be more ‘child like’ in my approach to life!!

  • Kathy Petras May 29, 2015, 7:03 am

    I try to look at everyday as an adventure – looking for one thing – big or small to experience and appreciate. I am also taking a road trip with a friend in the next few weeks and would so love to have this adventure log to document my experience 🙂 Thank you!

  • Shelley B. May 29, 2015, 7:04 am

    I’m starting to volunteer at events I enjoy! My husband and I just volunteered for the Amgen tour in Sacramento!
    World class cycling with the best view on the road!! We’re checking out other volunteer opportunities to give back, meet new people and expand our horizons!!

  • Beverly May 29, 2015, 7:07 am

    I usually have a plan to get something accomplished when I leave the house, but often that gets very dull very quickly, so several times a month (more often in good weather) I just pack a journal and a water bottle and take off–no destination in mind. I find I get a lot more accomplished when just rambling than when following a strict plan. Love your blog, and thanks for the opportunity to “compete” fro the Adventure Log!

  • Randy May 29, 2015, 7:08 am

    Embrace the leaves and keep a poetry book near to hand as often as possible.

  • Vanessa May 29, 2015, 7:08 am

    I live on a small farm, and adventure with my flock of chickens and baby pigs on a regular basis. They show me new things each day, and I learn a lot about myself in the process too!

  • Gary May 29, 2015, 7:09 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure by moving a dream.

  • Christy May 29, 2015, 7:09 am

    Doing something new, or something that scares me every single day!

  • Lauren May 29, 2015, 7:11 am

    I cultivate adventure daily by finding the beauty wherever inam. I seek out sunsets, drive down roads I have yet to travel, and say YES to new experiences. It doesn’t hurt that road trips are my favorite! 🙂

  • Anna May 29, 2015, 7:11 am

    Each day, my futur hubby and me, walk our dog up the mountain that’s right behind our house. And we always try to take a new route through the trees, making sure that Paco (our crazy big loving-dog) gets to smell new scents. It’s like a mini-adventure full of small discoveries, especially when I bring my camera and catch a glimpse of a new wildflower !

  • Rebecca May 29, 2015, 7:11 am

    Whenever possible I try to mix it up – try something new, look at things with fresh eyes. Would love to record some of my adventures, so hopefully one day my kids can get as much enjoyment as I have from reading notes from my (deceased) dad’s travels.

  • Maura May 29, 2015, 7:11 am

    Fun to write what I learn/explore from the nature. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Michelle May 29, 2015, 7:12 am

    Hi Tammy,

    Oh how I love giveaways! Well, lately I have been making an effort to plan out my days and create a rhythmic routine. It’s still a work-in-progress but I have been able to carve out time for ‘me’ daily. Of course, life doesn’t always go as planned, and when something comes up I keep an open mind. For example, yesterday I planned to go jogging after work but my boyfriend surprised me by coming over. Instead we ate dinner together and enjoyed each other’s company- talking about our work day, life, goals, etc. I wouldn’t necessarily call that ‘adventure’ but it’s a reminder not to be too rigid with our time.

  • Kari Jost May 29, 2015, 7:13 am

    I would like to win this for my son. He just moved to Montana and is definitely going to have outdoor adventures!

  • CA May 29, 2015, 7:14 am

    Bicycling! I often see things I wouldn’t otherwise and stop to check them out, or need to improvise because I need to carry something or the weather is iffy or anything else. Getting out of the metal box (car) and out into the world makes every day a great adventure!

  • Sarah Marie May 29, 2015, 7:14 am

    This is an interesting question. I think for a lot of us we get tied to our responsibilities (work, family, house, and life). So sometimes it feels that we miss out on being adventurous or having an adventure. But I am slowly understanding, learning, and growing with a sense of joy and wonder. Each day has something new for us. For me, I try to focus and meditate on just what is going on during the day in which I am present in. So no wasting my time or spending my thoughts on worries for tomorrow. So I think adventure can be anything as long as you remain open to the Universe in the present. 🙂

  • Marilyn May 29, 2015, 7:15 am

    I am grateful every moment and I am especially grateful for new adventures.

  • Diana May 29, 2015, 7:16 am

    It’s daily walking for me, with my beautiful dog Walter by my side. It’s my sanity, my breathing space, my quiet time, my creative time. A time to be with myself, nature and Walter on life’s adventure.

  • Lisa May 29, 2015, 7:17 am

    I’ve been trying to encourage my 4 year to start a journal (just drawings now) to share her feelings and thoughts. It would be great if Mommy could have one to do along with her!

  • Suzi Ragsdale May 29, 2015, 7:18 am

    My adventure this year will be my trip to Canada to watch the Women’s World Cup. I am planning on exploring the Vancouver area water, parks and people.

  • Patricia C. May 29, 2015, 7:19 am

    Hi Tammy. My sense of adventure lays in stretching myself beyond the safe and comfy zone. I’m a total introvert / with monklike tendancies, and each year I create and facilitate a retreat for emerging writers. Stretching, stretching. And sometimes it’s just about taking that leap and trusting the net will appear. Happy Adventures..

  • Dianne May 29, 2015, 7:20 am

    Just being aware and observant of what surrounds me, no matter where I am, as I discover things I may have missed before. Throw in a dash of spontaneity and an ordinary day with ordinary tasks can become a wonderful adventure.

  • Lianne van Liere May 29, 2015, 7:21 am

    I love an adventure log! Currently I’m purposefully bringing in a new fragrance (flowers, perfume), appealing sight (take picture e.g.), nice sound (music, birds, etc), taste (new food) or touch (all sorts) into my day. A sense of adventure:-)!

  • Katie May 29, 2015, 7:22 am

    Love the look and idea of these adventure logs – what a great way to record adventures! I’ve been taking some urban hikes through London recently, and have found it really fun to walk, rather than take the tube underground because I’m finally working out how all these streets connect to each other, and where places are in relation to one another!

    I often hear people complaining that London is an unfriendly place…but I think that depends on how much friendliness you exude! On my walks, I tried smiling at passers-by (practically illegal in London!) and you know what? Almost EVERYONE who caught my eye returned my smile! For me, it was less about where I was on my adventure, but more about the adventure of connecting with all these people who bustle around each other in a big city. Smiling is infectious and it was fun to spread some love around! XXX

  • Michele May 29, 2015, 7:23 am

    I keep a list of my M.I.T’s and don’t over schedule myself after that so I can go where the winds may take me.

  • Heather May 29, 2015, 7:25 am

    When plans go awry, I try to look at the results as adventures instead of setbacks. When a trolley ride home with my daughter took much longer than planned, we took the trolley changes as a chance to talk with fellow riders and met some interesting people.

  • Pat Vosburgh May 29, 2015, 7:26 am

    I’m truly an adventurer. I carry a Polaroid camera with me everywhere I go and take pictures of my adventures and people along the way. I make friends easy that way too because I give them their “little gift” I live and love to travel and experience new cultures, food, people, architecture and breathe everything in I can. I don’t like to miss a thing in life as its too short and I have so much Love to give to people. An adventure log would be perfect. 🙂

  • Deb May 29, 2015, 7:26 am

    The older I get the more adventures I am having. It is a great time of life.

  • Irene Patti May 29, 2015, 7:27 am

    “The most memorable journeys have little to do with money.
    The most interesting paths are those forged by God.
    The greatest adventures are those that rely solely on faith.”
    This is my life philosophy and I live each day seeking a great adventure…whatever and wherever that may take me!
    (P.S. This adventure “quote” inspired by an old Costa Del Mar sunglass brochure)

  • Nikko Moy May 29, 2015, 7:27 am

    Wow love this little book and the idea of adventure everyday!

  • Sue Layman May 29, 2015, 7:27 am

    I’ve just finished reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo, and for me it was an eye opener. I’ve read tons of articles/blogs/books about tidying up / decluttering, but this was meant for me to read. While following her method last weekend, I discovered several short stories I’d written many years ago, and remembered how much I loved writing and journaling, and now I’m ready to get back into the habit. I try to always find new adventures each day, even if it is something as simple as trying a new way to arrange the furniture ! Life is way too short to not have adventures each day, whether it’s a different path to try or a new friend to make. Thanks for sponsoring this awesome giveaway ! :o)

  • Collin May 29, 2015, 7:28 am

    As a biology grad student, it’s always been about never leaving a stone unturned (literally). I’m always searching for the things unseen around me and learning about them. Whether it’s during the daily bike commute and stopping to investigate a small stream, or during an evening walk with my wife to search for bird nests in the trees, I try to breathe deep the world around me.

  • Diane May 29, 2015, 7:29 am

    This is a well timed question. We’ve always tried to plan adventurous vacations once or twice a year. But this summer, I am trying to take advantage of adventures locally – it’s funny how people always think they need to travel to have adventures when there are so many close to home.

  • Ashlee May 29, 2015, 7:40 am

    I try to see the world through the eyes of my 5 year old daughter, which leads to magic and adventure everywhere!

  • Gary May 29, 2015, 7:42 am

    I live on my boat Carpe Diem. It is my Latin for my motto, Seize the Day. Every day is an adventure and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • Jess May 29, 2015, 7:43 am

    Every day I try a new way of keeping that sense of adventure around me. For example at work, I keep a little cigar box full of treasures from my most recent adventure – polaroids, pinecones, bottle caps – so I have a happy place for my eyes to rest.

  • Jewel May 29, 2015, 7:44 am

    I cultivate my sense of adventure by always exploring, growing, and learning. Sometimes it is new places and sometimes it is new skills. As long as I am not sitting stagnant on the couch life is always an adventure.

  • Abi Kleinsmith May 29, 2015, 7:45 am

    I teach high schoolers chemistry. I don’t have to look hard to get adventure in my every day life. But soon I get to take a trip to Zambia, which lets my take advantage of my summer break.

  • Susan May 29, 2015, 7:45 am

    With a 16 month old daughter every experience can be an adventure. I practice saying “yes!”

  • Michael gold May 29, 2015, 7:47 am

    Be mindful of the little things, for they are often the most surprisingly adventurous aspects of everyday life.

  • Kelly May 29, 2015, 7:49 am

    Three weeks ago I committed to apply tiny habits to my daily routine. One of which is taking a minimum 20 minute walk everyday. Afterwards, I write a minimum of 50 words everyday about my daily adventures in life, external and internal. It has been a life changing experience.
    Enjoying the blog Tammy. Always look forward to Friday’s and Happy Links!

  • Ashley Groenke May 29, 2015, 7:52 am

    We find adventures for ourselves by making a point to explore the many State, County, and Regional parks near our home. We try to hit a couple new ones every month – it’s great to get out of the house (especially in the winter), enjoy nature, and get some exercise (for us and the dog) and I love that we can have so many new/unique experiences without spending a lot of money or traveling too far away from home!

  • Linda May 29, 2015, 7:52 am

    seeing through my grandson’s eyes.

  • Carrie May 29, 2015, 7:55 am

    Over the last few years, I’ve done a lot of soul searching, and at times, it feels like an adventure! But I also love getting out on the weekends and seeing/experiencing new places. These would be well-used! Thanks for offering this sweet giveaway!

  • Erin May 29, 2015, 7:56 am

    I push myself to try something new every day, and I’m learning to ride a motorcycle! Going to be taking some trips, and I think an adventure log is an excellent idea 😀

  • Julie May 29, 2015, 7:56 am

    Hi Tammy. Every morning I wake up at 5:30 a.m. and spend an hour with my partner and four-legged friends, sipping coffee, sometimes chatting, most times simply enjoying the rising sun and chirping birds. After that, my day is usually a mystery. Rarely do I have a plan for the day, though I do generally make time to walk, write and read a bit. For me, learning how to cultivate a daily sense of adventure has been about becoming comfortable with, and enjoying, the spontaneity of my days. I’m privileged in this way, and I truly appreciate that.

  • Andrea May 29, 2015, 7:57 am

    I create a sense of adventure in my daily life through taken photographs. Photography has taught me to be more present in every moment and to see more of the details of what is going on around me…this often leads to unexpected and delightful adventures. Thanks for this generous giveaway!

  • Marla May 29, 2015, 7:58 am

    I have managed to cultivate adventure most of my life, from a simple daily ride on my horse, to doing a year of cultural exchange in Guanajuato, Mexico, while attending college. I believe that cultivating a sense of wonder is key, add a dash of enthusiasm about life in general, and periodically, I must move beyond the boundaries I have created for myself in my daily, mundane life. Of late, my husband and I take a weekly drives in to the local forests, doing forays onto unimproved roads, observing the flora and fauna as spring moves into summer…

  • Kristina Wingeier May 29, 2015, 7:58 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure by keeping my eyes “fresh” – open to seeing the same thing in a new way, or something new in a familiar environment. thanks for the chance to win!

  • Megan L May 29, 2015, 7:59 am

    Gratitude practice and meditation help me to constantly see the world through new eyes, which helps create a sense of adventure and wonder in ordinary aspects of life.

    I also cultivate routines in my life that nurture me, but allow myself to break from them when unique opportunities arise. Say yes to collecting new experiences!

  • Angie May 29, 2015, 8:01 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure in my everyday life by writing (LOVE), letting the Divine take the lead (have you ever read Tosha Silvers book: Outrageous Openness?) and living in the moment. Being out in nature is a must for me. 🙂 Thank you so much for this awesome opportunity to win an Adventure Log.

  • Sheryl Satorre May 29, 2015, 8:06 am

    I am a teacher, and everyday is an adventure for me. I got to discover new things from my students, and learn from them.

  • daoine o' May 29, 2015, 8:11 am

    I live in a wonderful old mining town high in the mountains…I am so blessed! Everyday is an adventure! It is everywhere I look! Thank you Tammy for your inspiring site and for this ‘adventurous’ opportunity! 🙂

  • Gina M May 29, 2015, 8:12 am

    Adventure? With a full time job, 2 teenage daughters, a self-employed husband and a dog the size of a small pony, I’d say adventure is built in to my life every day!

  • Debi May 29, 2015, 8:14 am

    My sense of adventure extends to mind adventures as well as physical adventures. I try to do something new to me every day or explore with curiosity something new every day. I live in the boonies and work from my studio at home so I often don’t get far from home during the day. If my adventure is physical, I try to explore a new area of my neighborhood on my walks if I don’t go far. I try to talk to new people every day … people can sometimes be the ultimate adventure. And if I don’t get out too far from the studio … I hike the internet to explores something my curiosity is asking about that I don’t know much about. Lately it’s been the mongols of the 13th century and their exploits (think Genghis and Kublai Kahn). My adventure travels logs are used for both physical travel and mental travel. Thanks so much for offering this free gift and thanks go beyond to Word Notebooks for their offer as well. Thanks to you for your lovely blog writings … I enjoy them greatly every week.

  • Cathie May 29, 2015, 8:20 am

    I start with gratitude and then, because I am grateful for the grace in my life, every moment I hang onto that joy becomes a mini adventure. Smelling the perfume from a fading iris. Or watching a baby robin tussling in midair as it tries to capture a white moth. Walking around the neighborhood becomes an adventure as nature interacts around me. Sitting on a crabbing wharf feeling the liquid movement of the ocean beneath me.
    All of life is truly an adventure when the heart is open!

  • Robyn May 29, 2015, 8:21 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure simply by being present as I move throughout my day. I am currently working on a 365 day photography project so when I notice a particularly compelling sight when I’m driving, I pull over and take it all in, then snap a few shots to edit later. This project has helped me not just to look up and around more but to SEE everything around me in a more creative way!

  • Kayla Dawn Thomas May 29, 2015, 8:33 am

    Being a mom to an almost nine-year-old sets every day up for adventure. She keeps me on my toes with her bubbly energy and exuberance. I look forward to exploring with her when school gets out. We’ve discovered a shared love for hiking, so will definitely be hitting our local trails.

  • Lindsey May 29, 2015, 8:33 am

    I cultivate a sense of adventure every day by stepping out of my comfort zone.

  • Judi Selset May 29, 2015, 8:38 am

    Well the first post I wrote is in cyberspace I guess.. Using a cell phone can be an adventure in/of itself!

    What I wrote is in October of last year I got a definate surprise. At 72 I had to have a pacemaker placed due to serious electrical issues in my heart. I’m on heart meds and do the “warfarin dance” daily. Those are a necessity and are an adventure to keep everything working together. I used to travel a lot and we always saved to take our grandkids to Hawaii when they graduate high school. I decided I had choices..I chose to go back to work for the Seattle Mariners team as a gate host. I get to share with the fans ( from all over the world) their new adventure by coming to our ballpark. This year our youngest granddaughter graduates high school.. I decided to continue my life adventure and help her to begin her new life adventure by learning about new cultures and seeing life througnew eyes. I could sit home and wring my hands but decided to make sure meds are doing their job and the go ahead from doctor and go for it. Many adventures await us on the Big Island.. Erupting volcanos, sacred valleys to explore. I wanted to take her to the top of Mauna Kea (can’t as too high for my heart) to see the stars up close. However, I that the Imiloa at the university offers one the opportunity to see/feel what it’s like in a 24 hour period on top.. So sometimes you just need to figure it out how to continue your life adventures and when life presents you lemons.. You decide to make lemonade.

  • Amelia Plunk May 29, 2015, 8:39 am

    I am currently learning how to sketch more effectively so that I can draw my surroundings every day! Eventually I want to have an illustrated travel journal to take with me around the world.

  • Melissa May 29, 2015, 8:44 am

    Cool give away! I’d love to log the adventurer in me 😉
    Whenever I feel I’m uncomfortable with something that’s going on, I try to realize that is because it’s something new. New experiences are an adventure and always a bit scary but always worth it in the end!

  • Melisa May 29, 2015, 8:50 am

    Great giveaway! Thanks for bringing this to your followers. As a coach who “lives it to give it”, I have learned to listen to my body everyday and ask it what it needs . . . sometimes it is about exploration of the outside world (like going to the beach and putting my feet in the cold cold water) and sometimes it is about exploring the inside world . . . it is always an adventure!

    • Lisa May 29, 2015, 11:27 am

      I’ve been really working on making my adventures a time of absolute presence and that has been quite the adventure. It’s still new, I still ruminate and worry, but I am getting better and better at being right there to experience what is.
      I love your blog, your photo’s of Shasta (My Gran lived in Weed and we spent many a summer there) and the journey of your, your kitties and your husbands mindful life.

  • Ann MacKay May 29, 2015, 9:34 am

    I live in a 110-acre retirement community with a forest preserve and stream running through it. Elevated walkways connect all the apartment buildings housing over 1750 residents. We watch for our resident deer, fox, and owls as we walk the skyways. A walk around the lake means we see the Canadian geese that decided to stay year round. Every day is a new adventure as the campus goes through the seasonal changes. That is just the experience of nature. With a vibrant community of people all 60 and over, we participate in over 300 clubs and organizations. I am learning something every day as leader of the Apple User Group on campus. My latest adventure is using an Apple watch. Life long learning is the key to experiences.

  • Luann May 29, 2015, 9:44 am

    I try to do something I think is special each day……even if it is just as simple as taking a walk to see the neighborhood flowers, or having an ice cream cone !

  • Holly May 29, 2015, 9:51 am

    I am cultivating adventure in my life by trying something new creatively every day. It might be trying a new lesson with my private art student and creating along with her. It might be trying a new art trend like Zentangles or using a Gelli Art monoprinting plate. I might attempt a new soap recipe (I make and sell my soaps) or sow seeds for a plant I have never grown before. Since I have started this task I am becoming creatively unstuck and gaining confidence in myself. It would be lovely to have a journal to note my adventures and which ones I want to try again! Thanks for the generosity Tammy.

  • Amy May 29, 2015, 9:52 am

    I try to walk my West Highland White Terrier on a different route each morning. We love meeting new dogs and people and noticing things like a lilac garden in full bloom, a team of window washers, or a funky piece of driftwood washed up on the beach.

  • Amanda May 29, 2015, 9:59 am

    I’d love to have one of these journals. I try to look at everyday as a new adventure to see what awaits. I like to cultivate a sense of adventure by doing things outdoors, reading, and writing.

  • Lindsay May 29, 2015, 9:59 am

    For me, having a sense of adventure is as much a stats of mind as it is a physical leap. I try to think of things with a new perspective and to listen to other people’s stories with empathy and kindness. I also live vicariously through my dear friends, who definitely live life to it’s fullest with adventure and curiosity!

  • Tim May 29, 2015, 10:02 am

    Thanks for the chance to win! After a two year hiatus I have recently begun to bike commute again, often taking the long route home just to enjoy the scenery and snap some photos of what I see along the way.

  • Hilde Swart May 29, 2015, 10:19 am

    Thanks for your inspiration to find adventure in every day life. I find it in my children, they show it to me every day. I try to learn new things every day, a recipe, a sewingprojekt, plant à new vegetable in my backyard….

  • Leah May 29, 2015, 10:21 am

    A sense of adventure….hmmm. Good question! I think having kids is pretty adveturous. It makes things unpredictable. That’s for sure! I think just accepting life’s little challenges and trying to inject a sense of fun into the routine feels pretty adventurous. And being willing to play. 🙂

  • Katy B. May 29, 2015, 10:24 am

    My boyfriend and I love to explore and hike, so we visit different state and county parks in our area on the weekend. We have ended up in some really spectacular, tourist-free (we are in Florida) places…and we have learned a lot about working together to read a low-detail map without tearing each other a new one! I typically document our trips on Instagram because I love nature photography, but I recently read an article about “Slowgramming” that inspired me to start a sketchbook (http://wanderlust.com/journal/how-to-replace-instagram-with-sketchbook-slowgrams/). I think the adventure log would be awesome for this little experiment! Anyway, thanks for reading and offering the contest!

  • Christy May 29, 2015, 10:29 am

    For long term adventures I created a list – examples are in () – and with categories such as:
    Experiences to Have (Eat at Voodoo Donuts)
    Skills & Knowledge (Learn to play the recorder)
    Education (Earn a certificate in Documentary Studies)
    Achievements (get e-mail box to zero)
    Out of Region Tours (Witness a salmon run in Alaska)
    Bag Old Growth Forest Hikes in Washington & Oregon (Opal Creek)

    Like some of the other commenters on a daily basis I say “yes.”

    Thanks for posting this – I have enjoyed reading the entries.

  • joanna May 29, 2015, 10:41 am

    I’m adventurous in that I’m always outdoors and love finding local new treasures for hiking or to just be.
    Journals are beautiful and would love to throw one in my hiking bag

  • Kirsten May 29, 2015, 10:42 am

    We love to take my little nephew on “adventures”. He’s 6 and has three younger siblings. It’s a great way to give him some one on one time. Our adventures have included a trip to the big library downtown, hiking in a state park, ice skating, the humane society and more. He talks about our adventures with great pride. I’d love to give this log to him so that we can record our adventures together.

  • Laura May 29, 2015, 10:54 am

    Five months ago, I moved to New Mexico because it cultivates in me a daily sense of adventure. I love being able to walk out my door and hike in the most beautiful places under the great big Southwest sky.

  • Karin Orloski May 29, 2015, 10:59 am

    I have taken up a new hobby — COOKING! It feels like a whole new world has opened up… Which has reignited my creativity in new ways. So much to explore!

  • Sarah May 29, 2015, 11:02 am

    how neat! Although I shall miss your happy links this weekend. I try to cultivate adventure everyday by being open to what is around me and available. I work a very physical full time job where I am outside the majority of the time, so it can be hard to motivate myself to go on adventures when I have time. But I’m trying to do just that – I live in a Mecca of national parks and recreation sites, so to get myself excited I make lists of all my goals of fun adventures and try and get out and do them!

  • Alexis May 29, 2015, 11:10 am

    I’ve been trying to learn new things every day, reading or watching or makin something different. I’m not an outdoors type, I hardly go out at all, but I like learning things. Each new recipe or book or idea is like a whole new world to discover. 🙂

  • Heather Olsen May 29, 2015, 11:15 am

    I look for the many small good & positive things that happen every day, and I keep both a physical and digital gratitude journal to capture a few of them before I go to bed.

    Keeping an open mind and heart cultivates a spirit of adventure in me <3

  • Kyla H May 29, 2015, 11:17 am

    I do a lot of walking each day, usually to and from work. Instead of finding this walk monotonous or ordinary, I often choose a detour or slightly different route on a whim, curious of what I’ll notice or find around the next corner. I see things that make me smile, things I’ve never noticed before in my neighborhood, and I feel a small sense of adventure as I’m walking into my day, or into my night, happily curious about what will unfold.

  • Anna May 29, 2015, 11:31 am

    Thank you for the giveaway! I used to do journals when I was a kid and I would like to start again. It is so exciting especially in a computer age, where everything is electronic. I forgot the last time I used a pen for more than just signing my name or jotting couple of notes it would be great to start expressing myself again.

  • Carly May 29, 2015, 11:52 am

    Amazing! I create adventure in my daily life by committing to taking time outside every day. Even if it’s just in my own backyard or walking to the meadow down the street to watch the sunset. Photography helps me feel find the adventure when I go to those places. It makes me feel alive & adventurous to be in nature. 🙂

  • Cassy Day May 29, 2015, 12:30 pm

    With the Wild Bunch (8 rescue dogs and 4 rescue cats), life is always an adventure. While I will probably never be a tiny houser, your blog (& a few others) have inspired me to simplify my life, allowing us to be open to more adventures. Who knows what tomorrow may bring!

  • Cynthia May 29, 2015, 12:37 pm

    I like to wander with my camera. Lately I go exploring down back roads near the ocean. This time of year, the bay side of every gulf island has nooks with interesting birds.

  • Thia May 29, 2015, 12:50 pm

    I find that if I keep my mind soft, receptive, and curious that I can find some adventure in each day.

  • Courtney May 29, 2015, 12:55 pm

    I spend time in nature everyday even if just on my lunch hour!

  • Sheri May 29, 2015, 1:40 pm

    In everyday life: commuting by walking home from the office (~2 miles with 2 hills) and stopping to smell the flowers! Hurrah for Spring!!!

  • Ti May 29, 2015, 1:42 pm

    I cultivate a sense of adventure in my everyday life by adding a quirk to whatever I wear. It may be a corset under a linen jacket at work, so no one but me knows I’m rocking a sexy look or writing something in Sharpie on my wrist, stomach, or thighs. Once I’m outfitted like an adventurer, I live up to the look, even if it’s a secret!

  • Kyra May 29, 2015, 1:47 pm

    I would love to have the opportunity to find out more about the adventure books and having more adventures. Exploring new areas and documenting them is such a great way of learning more about you and your environment. Thank you Tammy, for the opportunity to win this! <3

  • teresa May 29, 2015, 1:52 pm

    I love a good adventure – from exploring the woods behind our house, to flying off to somewhere new, to running errands – it is all in how you approach life, with a sense of adventure!

  • Jenn May 29, 2015, 1:58 pm

    I love the idea of creating adventure in everyday life! It is so easy to get stuck in the routine and mundane tasks that are a part of life. My sisters and I have decided that we want to get outside this summer, as often as possible. We are in California’s Central Valley so there are so many wonderful places to get out and find adventure near us! If I am lucky enough to win one of these sets, I will most definitely be sharing with my two sisters! 🙂

  • Lisa L May 29, 2015, 2:02 pm

    I try to change my route to work and back each day. I walk and take the subway so I try different streets and get off at different stops. You never know what you might see! And I love to watch travel shows on TV.

  • Marina May 29, 2015, 2:24 pm

    Do something I feel excited about every single day, sounds easy but its really hard! So I am in for this one adventure this year. I’m trying to elevate my self-confidence to start my new business and my ego is really making me have a hard time. Adventuring will help me let go and take the leap, Oh YES!

  • Carol May 29, 2015, 2:24 pm

    I love to ride my bike and hike…and read about new things and places…always be learning and exploring. My hubby and I have 6 kiddos who all adventurous!

  • Jackie Purkess May 29, 2015, 2:34 pm

    I try to cultivate a sense of adventure by thinking outside the box. Trying something different than the norm.

  • Liz May 29, 2015, 2:35 pm

    – Sometimes, when I walk across the parking lot into my work-building, instead of weaving between the cars, I’ll pretend I’m a car and walk the long way around.
    – Sometimes I’ll write a “your company is awesome!” comment to a business I think deserves it… and then smile to myself when the response says “thanks for getting in touch; your issue has been resolved”.
    – Sometimes I’ll carry an apple with me when travelling from the ‘burbs into Chicago, just so I can make the day brighter for someone who could really use an apple.
    – Sometimes I’ll pause to closely inspect a leaf or a flower just to admire the way it looks in the light.
    – Sometimes I’ll fall in love with a song, and then make a Pandora station just for that artist… and if I’m lucky, she’ll be in town next month for a concert.

    Not all of these things have happened more than once… yet. We’ll see how things flow through the ebbs of my future days.

  • Sara N May 29, 2015, 2:37 pm

    I act goofy and am spontaneous whenever I can be. Whether it’s dancing around the aisles at a store, singing at the top of my lungs to the radio, or taking off for an unplanned weekend road trip, I try to be a non-conformist when I can, which is my idea of an adventure 🙂

  • Sabina May 29, 2015, 2:50 pm

    Try at least one new thing every day!

  • Erica May 29, 2015, 2:51 pm

    Woot Woot! Adventures – so excited to have the chance to win an Adventure Log. We were just hiking today (me, hubby & our 2 doggies) … with spring upon us, we are re-wilding ourselves as much as possible. To record the flora, fauna, our boys’ antics … looking forward to winning!

  • Kim Huender May 29, 2015, 2:58 pm

    I try to be open to new adventures every day. I make sure that my schedule is open enough that if someone wants to get together and do something then I am available. I have lived in remote locations like Antarctica and Johnston Atoll (Pacific). I am that friend that will go on a vacation to Nicaragua because they asked. Everyday I try to do creative things. I also host a lot of couchsurfers and bring in strangers into our home that leave as friends.

  • Whit Clark May 29, 2015, 3:00 pm

    This is so great! I love the idea of creating adventure in everyday life! I think about that a lot with my kids! I have a very creative and imaginative toddler and love the time I get staying home with him to make memories and make our own “adventures” together each and everyday!!

  • Walter May 29, 2015, 3:14 pm

    Everyday is a new adventure, and how we enjoy Those days is what’s important. the best way to enjoy any type of activity, comes in the words of wisdom…and these are my words. simply said, “just remember, don’t always follow in the same path as everyone else. Life gets very boring that way, and you miss a great deal of the details and miss out on important experiences. start your own path, when you get to the end if there are people behind you, you know you have helped someone see or learn something new. Then tell them this advice so they can go and learn something new and share with others. besides, some people follow too closely, that can get a little creepy.”

    find a new way to enjoy something totally different

  • Kyla L May 29, 2015, 3:35 pm

    I cultivate a sense of adventure in my everyday life by painting. When I can’t travel, I look through the archives of digital photos I have collected over the years of my travels and I paint or draw the places and objects and relive the memories and think of new adventures when I get to return to those places! You really remember locations and their memories when you sit down and draw them

  • Dominique May 29, 2015, 3:44 pm

    Reading is always a big source of adventure! When I can’t find the time to have a real adventure, I can live them through books…. and there is an inexaustible supply!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Alannah May 29, 2015, 4:46 pm

    I am constantly trying new breweries and restaurants, as I can’t afford to travel out of town. Also I like to be involved with various groups either by volunteering or just as a regular member for things that take me out of my comfort zone. I belong to Meetup.com and join anything interesting that pops up!

  • Lisa May 29, 2015, 5:21 pm

    I’m a teacher. During my summer, I love wake up early, to put on my sneakers, earbuds, and grab some water and just walk up and down streets all morning exploring. It’s funny all the strange and pretty little places there are within walking distance that you never notice driving by in a car. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Laura May 29, 2015, 5:41 pm

    Well, I have 5 kids…I don’t really need to do anything to add adventure to my life/day. Every day IS an adventure!

  • Jeanne. May 29, 2015, 5:41 pm

    On daily walks I always look for something I’ve never seen before. Same route mostly, new experience always:-)

  • Sophie May 29, 2015, 5:45 pm

    I don’t take the “to do” list too seriously and am willing to take what the day has to offer with the kids.

  • Stephanie D May 29, 2015, 6:00 pm

    In the past, I’ve saved adventures for vacations – London, Myrtle Beach, Key West. Lately I’ve been looking for things to do in my hometown. It’s surprisingly easy to find fun and a great story to tell my friends from traveling no further than just down the street. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Catherine D. May 29, 2015, 6:27 pm

    In my job, I meet new people daily and learning their history is an adventure. Also, I love to try new foods, find new restaurants, new shops and get out of town for a quick trip whenever possible. I am always planning the next budget getaway since I love to experience new places, people and culture. I am working on a travel journal my daughter gave me and I will need a new one soon!

  • Peggy May 29, 2015, 6:39 pm

    At my age, just getting up every day is a wonderful adventure that I give thanks for. Plus the dogs pestering us to go places and do things. They love their little hikes.

    • Nancy May 29, 2015, 8:30 pm

      I’ve been more thankful for each day since I turned the same age of my parents’ deaths (they both died at age 67, 6 weeks of one another). Every day is just a little bit more special since then.

  • Veronica May 29, 2015, 6:47 pm

    Sometimes an adventure is as exciting as the word suggests. Like when I took a solo trip to Italy. Most of the time, for me, the adventure is when I embrace life. It is challenging to be a human. Difficult, exciting, fulfilling, crushing. Sometimes just getting myself geared up to get out of bed can be an adventure. A lot of my adventures have been trying new things like starting komucha from a bottle I bought in a store, learning how to nourish and use sourdough, growing mini peppers on my patio. Just being alive is one of the wildest adventures I could imagine.
    Thanks for your blog, which I enjoy, and for this giveaway, which I hope to win as they look really great!

  • Annette May 29, 2015, 6:51 pm

    My boyfriend & I are getting near retirement age but are still working. We have this thing that we have been doing for the last few years. We listen to the radio and where there are cheap airfares to that’s what we buy.
    We use our hotel points to pay for the rooms. We look up the top 10 things to do in that city pack a carry on and off we go for a weekend plus a day or two. We did Lima, Peru & Santiago, Chile for $262, Moscow, Russia for $314. We just got back from Hong Kong and we go to Brazil for $400 in a few months. We also enter every travel contest we can on the radio. We won a trip to Capetown, South Africa in January and a Carribean Cruise in February. We try to go somewhere every month. We want to get all our travelling in while we can still walk and still have our mental faculties. I’s amazing how cheaply you can go if you try. This is our adventure.

    • Nancy May 29, 2015, 8:28 pm

      I like the way you think! I am ‘in the retirement’ ranks, however, still have to work full time. I wish you many great adventures!

  • Jane May 29, 2015, 7:47 pm

    Telling my little family how much I love them every day.
    They are my one big adventure.
    Being with them is an adventure in itself.
    Travelling through life with them is my everything.

  • Amy H May 29, 2015, 7:48 pm

    I have been debating purchasing these. I love the thought of getting out and trying new things or seeing some part of my city I have not seen. I have already planned day trips with the kids around where we live once they get out of school and it would be nice to have a dedicated space to write about our adventures so we have a record of them.

  • Gloria Lucia May 29, 2015, 8:04 pm

    When an opportunity presents itself, I like to do spontaneous things, taking unplanned tangential trips or walks or something similar.

  • Jan May 29, 2015, 8:13 pm

    appreciate each day.

  • Constance Blizzard May 29, 2015, 8:18 pm

    Chasing a two-year-old is enough to keep an adventurous spirit. And when that doesn’t work, whiskey helps.

  • Nancy May 29, 2015, 8:25 pm

    People often try to encourage me to write. I like the idea of an “Adventure Log”, hmmm … I guess you could say I have a ‘visual diary’ vs a ‘journal’. Unfortunately, I have to succumb to the fact that I constantly struggle with the dedication and tenacity to write with regularity, especially if it may be a day when nothing seemed relevant, or if I’m too tired, or if I think about it and don’t have a pen in hand … you know, yadda, yadda, yadda … perhaps if I had a nice looking journal I might be more apt to write what I believe about life, which is “Bottom line is, every day is worthy of a journal entry, on some level.” ~nrl

    Every night, my husband and I have started sharing 3 things from our day – not administravia but a story. We are now sharing things that likely wouldn’t have otherwise come up. It’s been great!

    When I was growing up, my mother would always say, “What did you learn today? You learn something new everyday.” I remember thinking it was such a cliche, yadda, yadda. BUT she was right. If we open ourselves to the possibilities, we can learn something new everyday. My mind frequently pauses to think on how I can do some things differently. Today it was a new process of completing my paperwork. Yesterday it was learning about bottle cutting. Tomorrow I will try a short meditation. Tonight we will watch a foreign film from the library. Next week my students and I will play jeopardy. Every day a new small adventure.

    If I won the adventure log, I would have more adventures.

    I and my wife have “adventure days” each week where we go to local hiking trails, museums…whatever we’re most excited about in the moment. We never know what day Adventure Day will be (since we’re self employed, it can be any day!) which adds to the adventure! 🙂

    My adventure every day, hour and minute is centering myself that we all have the same purpose in life…to make this a better world.

    I love to learn to so learning something new almost every day is my adventure. I’ve visited Japan a few times and I would love to explore more of it one day.

    Every day is an adventure since I’ve been practicing being present. Plain and simple!

    Getting outdoors, both near and far, inspires me. I take little trips around the local area or longer travels to cultivate adventure. And when I can’t travel, I am definitely dreaming about it. So for me, it all comes back to my love of the journey of life.

    every day is a new day for adventure. When I walk my dog in the morning, I observe the trees and flowers, seeing how they have grown overnight.

    I’d love to try out the Adventure Log! I moved to Nashville in March from NYC and started a blog. I’d love to try the Adventure Log as I explore my new home.

    An adventure every day – I’ve found the familiar everyday too predictable. Like a hero on a quest I am searching for chance treasures to notice by doing things a bit differently. As a musician I’ve found the silences increase the significance of the notes before and after them. Time to discover (and notice) the simple pleasures in a single tree against space of sky, the lone flower pushing up from a bed of rocks, or just the uniqueness of myself seeking adventure on an ordinary day.

    I cultivate a sense of adventure in my daily life through my trail runs. It’s easy to take them to that level and I love seeing the new things the trail reveals to me. Thanks!

  • Heather May 30, 2015, 6:11 am

    I don’t get to travel often so my sense of adventure comes from saying “YES!” to things I would normally say no to. I’ve been surprised to discover that I quite often like things that I assumed I would hate.

  • Tara May 30, 2015, 7:15 am

    A sense of adventure is what makes life exciting! And I don’t believe it has to be anything “big” or scary … maybe something as simple as taking a new route, visiting a new restaurant, or breaking out of one’s shell and saying hello to someone. I try to treasure little moments such as those, as I create the courage to tackle the truly “big” adventures.
