Humans have this innate tendency to gravitate towards comfort.
And it works against us in so many ways.
We think we’re just coasting, but in reality we’re usually drifting backward.
We want things to be easy, and our life muscles just keep atrophying.
We get stuck in a routine without even realizing it.
Take things for granted and forget to be thankful…
Become jaded and stop being students of life.
We don’t want to live a life of default or impact one less person than we could have, so we’ve made a conscious decision to do things that push us out of our comfort zones.
One year we moved to Costa Rica for the winter, knowing it meant David was quitting his comfy day job.
One year we took a crazy 9 week roadtrip around the US – to meet new people and learn about dreaming big dreams.
Commitment can feel very limiting, and often… boring.
But there’s something to be said for sticking to your commitments, especially the ones you make to yourself, even on the days you just really don’t want to adult.
Because let’s be real, there are so many parts of “adulting” that aren’t that fun.
I’ve found something a bit counter-intuitive to be true, though…
In the boring, mundane moments, you will find a chance to stretch your creativity in ways that you aren’t pushed to in the more entertaining parts of your day.
If you choose to look at life as an adventure and let yourself get a little imaginative, you’ll find fun and humor hiding in the most surprising places.
Take candy, for instance. Growing up, my favorite candy bar was Nestlé® Crunch®. For reals.
Chocolate by itself is awesome, but there’s something just a little more fun about that extra CRUNCH. I think it’s a great example of getting a little creative, adding a little punch.
This is how we adult after the kids go to bed 😀
Stay creative, stay young!
