    Adventure In Everything!

    Driving to my out of town destination last week I felt hurried and stressed. Then the thought occurred to me what a miracle it was to be able to get to my destination in just an hour of driving time compared to the wagon train days where it took months. I started observing the trees and magnificent sky and my trip then turned into an adventure.
    Noticing my change in mood I had to ask myself what caused this transformation of mindset? "Adventure In Everything" by Matthew Walker came to my mind. I have to tell you that I absolutely love it when I read a book that actually begins working in my life without me even trying.
    Matthew Walker has worked as a mountain guide and now guides his readers with this book to create adventure in their life and career. The author chooses five elements of adventure to demonstrate how to seek high endeavors for ourselves, embrace uncertain outcomes, totally commit to a chosen endeavor, and tolerate adverse situations and how adventure requires great companionship.
    Each chapter focuses on one of these elements with great examples and exercises for the reader to practice. I'm not one who really enjoys journaling but I have to admit that the exercises suggested that did require journaling were painless, easy and surprisingly effective.
    Another reason I enjoy this book is that it is unisex. It is one of those books I can easily share with my daughter, husband or son so they too can experience having an adventure in everything!

    As part of the FTC disclaimer rules I am making you aware that
    I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the book.
