middle ground

I have a sense of adventure. I always have. I blame my mother ;) She's a free spirit for sure and she encouraged and still encourages chasing dreams and going on adventures.
I also have a sense of responsibility. I can't shake it. Sometimes I wish I could live like all the people I see who make decisions and thumb their noses at consequences. But I can't.
It's an interesting combo. Adventure and responsibility.

At first glance they are at conflict. But I guess like all things there is a middle ground.

I am in the middle of a new adventure right now, with more to come. But I can't turn off my responsibility switch. I still have to do what I have to do and take care of the things that need care.

One bite at a time.
One step at a time.
One decision at a time.
Day by day looking for the leading of God in my life.
Assume nothing.
Keep asking and praying and moving forward.

and now I must go clean my house. and by clean my house I mean get rid of half of everything I own. lol. good night nurse.

later!

Some adventures take you through a desert. I am on one like that now. It is not my favorite one but it will be exciting in the end. Have you ever seen a mirage? Water ahem, I need water.....bring that camel up from the rear...I am tired of walking and need a rest...
