We are embracing this season of transition with simple adventures. Between the soccer games and school adventures are less like the travel and mountain biking experiences this summer and more like simple things in our backyard. I really enjoyed the meet up this weekend of the Everyday Adventure Challenge members where we discussed novel and simple concerts to experience adventure at all different ages and in many different locations around the world. In our family that simple adventure was playing a game, or an at-home escape room. (More ideas around this in episode 034| Games of Adventure (https://ordinarysherpa.com/034/) . The game we played was Finders Seekers (ordinarysherpa.com/finders) and the kids (ages 11, 9, and 6) were really engaged in not only learning about the national parks, and begging for the cool posters to be hung in their room, but also genuinely interested in finding the clues and solving the mystery. They were disappointed when we solved it because they didn’t want it to be over, so we will be purchasing more and experiencing some amazing wonders of the world while doing these unique escape rooms from the comfort of our home.

I never wanted to have to choose between being a mom, my professional career or adventurous lifestyle...so I didn’t. I wish I had been exposed to individuals like my guest today earlier in life. Finding her was like a breath of fresh air. Adventurous Moms can be successful entrepreneurs and financially independent. I think one of my first interactions with her content helped me redefine what the benchmarks of success were for our family, and embrace the fact that our family was different in all the right ways. That being weird and having adventures was part of our superpowers, and many others simply hadn’t been exposed to the possibility of what was possible yet.

1. Many mid-life crises happen because we take someone else’s definition of success. There comes a point when we look back we realize we gave up so much to achieve something that wasn’t important to us.
