Some days are tough. Your tired (or someone else is tired), your sick (or your kid is sick), you have chores that don't seem to account for your better life agenda. It's on these days that the sweet sense of adventure needs to be stoked the most in order to find that balance in your crazy wonderful life. One tablespoon of wild at a time.
I was having one of those weeks (not days). I was craving adventure but also keenly aware that my options had limits due to the fact that I'm in my third trimester, with a toddler, and my partner is off on his own (much needed) mountain adventure. Therefore, instead of sulking I opted to enjoy a beautiful day outside in our backyard. The extra effort was worth every penny: organization, small ladder climbing, trip to the store for marshmallows, and a toddler's agenda...
All this and we still had time for a nap, vacuuming, dishes, being goofy, and face timing daddy. It all seems to add new perspective to the phrase "go big or go home" - maybe both of those options are something to desire. Find your balance. I'm constantly working on mine.
