Spark adventure!

By Katherine White

Midterms, monotony, and the mundane day-to-day of classes can really start to get to you as the semester goes on. Sometimes a little spontaneity can help to keep you sane and refreshed!

Your adventure can be anything that takes you out of your comfort zone! You don’t have to go out and do something crazy to experience a little adventure. Do something you normally wouldn’t and see what kind of blessing God presents you through that -because sure enough, in all you do through Him, He is right there with you!

Today as I sat down with my work laid out in front of me, I noticed another girl working away on her studies a few tables over. Cliché as this may sound: Strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet (sometimes!) So, as she was gathering her things to leave I gathered the friendliness to spark up a conversation. Just by asking a relatable question you can gain a new friend. What a blessing small steps out of our comfort zones can result in!
Take a break from your central focus. Don’t get so consumed in your daily demands that you forget how to live, because sometimes that is really what it can feel like. Break into adventures out of your comfort zone and routines at times to follow God in new, even creative directions. If you really can’t logically take a break from your studies, venture to a new study-spot.

With the right mindset, any experience or opportunity can be viewed as a little adventure! Cut loose and allow yourself to have fun. Let go of vain aggressions and hesitations that hold you back from this mindset. Even getting a random phone call to go help your sister out can be an adventure when your heart is in the right place.
