I have spent my whole life as a cautious individual. Fear is as much a normal part of my life as sleeping. Comfortable, as far as fear can be considered so is how I viewed it. Uncomfortable yes, but less so then moving into unknown places and situations. A year & a half ago God allowed circumstances to place me in an unknown season of life. In that he confronted the way I had comfortably been living in the corner, rather than choosing to tackle my fears head on. I got to a place where I realized that as uncomfortable as it might be to face my fears, living in quiet complacency would be worse. I made a promise that whenever God revealed a fear to me I would find a way to confront it. These pictures are part of my journey of learning to let God teach me to actually live with abandon

"So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide"

"When I say I want to travel I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops. I don’t want to be a tourist. When I say I want to travel I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it. I want to discover small coffee shops in Germany and Italy and France. I want to walk on beaches in Australia and browse the book stores of England. I want to hike the Great Wall of China and go cliff diving in Hawaii I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to take pictures of things and places and people I meet. I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole but have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been. This, I think, is what is at the heart of Adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one."
