My family is choosing to really live as we take a month long road trip with our three and year old little boys. It’s time for an adventure!
I want to live. I mean really live. I want to take life by the horns and milk it for all it’s worth.
I want to see the world God created. I want to soak in the California sun. I want to feel the wind whipping through my hair in the capital of Illinois. I want to taste the syrup of New England. I want to swat flies in Africa. I want to experience the waterfalls of Australia.
I want to get outside the walls of my home, of my little town. I want to walk in someone else’s shoes for a day. I want to step outside my comfort zone and let my heart race a little. It’s in the racing that I live. It’s in the adventure that I thrive. It’s in the experience that I truly understand the grace of the Gospel.
God always becomes greater when I venture outside my little sphere.
He becomes bigger as I experience just how small I really am in this great big world. I become more compassionate as I experience life through another’s eyes.
I don’t want to wait anymore. I don’t want to wait for a better time, a time when it could be potentially easier or make more sense financially.
I want to go now. I want to see it now.
And then later?
I want to do it again and again and again.
And so our journey begins.
After taking our 40 day road trip, we decided to start a new blog dedicated to just our family road trip adventures. You can find our sister site, 40 Day Road Trips here.
