C'est La Vie - Finding Adventure in the Day to Day

I saw this image on Pinterest the other day and just wanted to share it with the world.  I love the patterns and colors and everything, but what I love most is the adventure it implies.  She has only herself, a car, a map, and a trunk full of randomness.  On my Bucket List is the item, “Go on a Road Trip Alone,” and this only spurs me to want to do that sooner.  There is something about being alone that makes you feel free.  You can do whatever you want because no one will know!  I do not mean this in a weird way, just there is this release of the need to impress. 
I know so many people, myself included, that just need to relax.  We need to give in to this freeing mentality of life being an adventure.  Sure, we have responsibilities, but I have lately been convicted to savor the moments and really sink into situations.  Do not let yourself feel awkward ever!  Find a new kind of humor in awkward situations.  Release yourself from self conscious tendencies.  Life is too short to worry all the time!  I really need to take my own words to heart today and start concentrating on being happy in my own skin and knowing that the day to day can be an adventure :)
Have a lovely Thursday my friends. 
Find passion in the journey today brings you!
