Help me pursue my Bucket List.


Fitness has not only brought me the gift of self-acceptance but it has expanded my definition of “fitness” and “health” to include more than simply how much I can bench press or the amount of pull-ups I can complete (although those are motivational too!) Fitness has allowed me the energy to get out. Adventure. Make the most of each day.

Adventure is where I have learned about myself. I’m aware of how much my physical body can do and how much more I am capable of mentally. The fact that my body is able to hike, bike, run etc makes me extremely grateful for the fitness and health I do have.

Adventure has brought more inspirational, motivational and intriguing characters into my life. Heros who enjoy each and everyday & want to explore it until there are no days left. Adventure has given me vorfreude- a word I just happened to pick up that means *the joyful anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures*.

I want to seek out adventures and the wanderers’ who want to seek it with me. I want to visit the places I’ve never thought I’d see. I want to be a part of something bigger than myself, make an impact in another persons’ life. Be a part of someone else’s story. Adventure is the best way to learn and I plan on doing a whole lot of learning!

In my quest to pursue more adventures, I stumbled across the Buried Life and their Epic Bucket List Contest via Contiki!
