Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.

lineLast weekend we visited an amusement park.  The lines were long.  I’m always amazed at how long people will stand in line for a 30 second thrill.  It struck me as we inched forward in the lines how interesting and symptomatic these lines were.

We are waiting, waiting, waiting.  Waiting for the next adrenaline rush.  The next adventure.  We are waiting in line for someone else to take the reigns and give our lives that 30 second rush.

I think this is the easy way out.  When did we stop living our lives as an adventure?  My family came to the U.S. from Italy, Germany, Wales, and beyond to change their lives.  They set off on a life changing journey and they were willing to cross the ocean on a ship under often dire circumstances to try for a better life.  For opportunity.  For freedom.  They were willing to risk their lives for it.

I think many of us are in a rut.  A rut in the road of life that we are so busy working 40+ hours for someone else that we can’t climb out and find the joy filled path that is ours to claim.

So I challenge you.  The next time you are waiting in line to experience that next big thrill at the theme park… keep the momentum of that excitement going.  Take that small step towards living your own adventure.  Only you, only your heart knows how to do it.

You got this.
