on facing adventure solo

I am in a solid state of singleness at this moment. And no, this is not a post complaining about the single life nor is it singing the praises of being single. It's a post that just is. 

This year my goal is to live in adventure more. I am committed to traveling, even for just a little bit, every month. I plan on doing more, seeing more and becoming more. And I'm doing it mostly solo. 

I'm very picky with who I spend copious amounts of time with. For their safety and mine. So with being single, my best friend living half a world away and only wanting to travel with my parents so much, there's only so many trips I can take without ending up going on my own.

But I see a lot of potential in my adventures with myself. It's a chance to connect and discover new possibilities. I can take time to focus on what I need mentally, physically or spiritually. There are so many benefits to facing adventure solo. 

It's not always going to be easy or fun. There will be times where I wish I could enjoy the sights of the Pacific North West with someone or have someone there to laugh at my hilarious jokes (or maybe they'd be laughing at me? Either way, there's laughter). But ultimately, solo adventure allows me to find more clarity on what I want and who I am. 

So far in my adventures this year, I have explored with others. But my first truly solo trip happens next month. I'm nervous and excited. And I can't wait to share it with you. 

I want to hear from you! Have you traveled much solo? Done anything insane on your own? Let me know in the comments and share what you learned and experienced!
