*This is part of the A to Z challenge for April.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to take a quest for adventure in a different universe or dimension? As I said in my A is for Atlas post which started this atozchallenge, I think it would be an amazing thing to find a map for another world. It only stands to reason that I would love to take a quest for adventure in that other world.
Only, I can’t. Or at least I have not yet found the map, so I can’t yet.
Still, I can go on a quest for adventure in everything I do, and so can you.
Do we have to seek adventure in our travels? Do we have to go on a hike, a cruise, a plane trip or any other trip in order to complete a quest? No.
Today I decided that what might seem like regular, boring, tedious yard work really is more of a quest. While I clear my yard of unwanted “weeds”, fallen branches and leaves, and of course anything that somehow missed staying in the trash cans, I began looking at what I find with a treasure hunter’s eye.
Some of the branches can be piled in such a way that they may appear to be a home for a gnome, or maybe a fairy. Some of the “trash” might be a lawn ornament. Some of the weeds, seemingly unwanted – especially among the pebbles that make my patio, are really very pretty and interesting. Could they really be a treasure fallen from Heaven?
Today I decided that as I clean my yard, I am going on a quest for the treasures from above. I am going to transplant them in places where they will grow and prosper and beautify my land.
I am hoping that, by making my yard a more beautiful and peaceful place, those peaceful spirits may find rest and adventure in my little world. It doesn’t matter if they are bunnies, bees, fairies, spirits, or humans, as long as my land brings peace and joy.
What activity in your day to day life can you change your way of thinking in order to make it less of a chore and more of an adventure?
