Adventure Rightly Considered

In Reflections from the Wildby thilton8382 Comments

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.

G.K. Chesterton

Three hikes into my emerging hiking career and I have stumbled upon this truism: A hike in the wild never goes completely according to plan. Whether a forgotten item, forced detour from the intended trail, or required change in itinerary there will be inconveniences. The question before us in those moments is: Will we embrace the spirit of adventure as G.K. Chesterton describes below?

      Agreed- when we see each day as both an adventure and a gift from the Lord then we are ready to truly live.
