4 years old

I got a email from my blog yesterday. It was an alert to tell me that Adventure Wannabe was turning 4 years old. Of course it got me to reminiscing about all that has happened in that time. In addition to all of the noted excursions and experiences that I have had that were a direct result of my blog I have had so many countless others. 

I became a father again. 

I have been blessed to continue living a life with my best friend as my wife.

I have made numerous new friends that have made life so much more interesting. 

I have become a published magazine journalist. (Sonoma Family Life)

I have gone to events that I never would have before. (Ringside at UFC)

I walked up to one of my heroes. (Willie Mays at the final 49er game in the ‘Stick.)

In addition to all of the documented adventures that you have read about in my posts.

However I think that the most lasting impact that AW has had on my life is that I no longer have as much hesitation to attempt new things. Life is way more crazy than when I started this. I had no idea what raising two little boys was really going to entail. That is the best adventure that I have been on though. They have given Dani and I a life filled with something new each and every day. For that I am blessed.

    I just found your blog looking for tattoos of all things! Getting a tattoo is something I’ve wanted to do for a while but never had the guts. Like you I wondered what people might think of me! It’s funny but I have really been struggling with the feeling that I have missed opportunities in my life so your motto it’s never too late to be who you might have been really resonated with me. I hope you are still crossing off your list. I’m inspired to write my own:)

      I am glad to have inspired you to think about making your own list. I am still crossing off items, but have seriously lagged in the updating my blog. So thank you for reminding me to keep up on my record keeping. I hope that you come up with something for your tattoo. I look at mine everyday and wonder why it took me so long to get it. I absolutely love having it. I means a ton to me. Start today with taking advantage of those missed opportunities. You only get one trip in life, don’t spend it worried about what anyone else thinks or sitting on the sidelines wishing you were in the game. Best of luck to ya. Let me know when you get your list together. I am always poaching new items off of people.
