I don’t know what to make out of the raw mix of excitement, fear, overwhelm, joy and whoaaaaaaa– the adrenaline filled life– my life. As a first time author, father of two and leader of a 36-state, 12,000 mile tour around USA I now spend large chunks of time in an adrenaline-filled state. I don’t think it’s hurting me and is a heck of a lot more fun than my cubicle job I was working about a year ago today–the one I left in exchange for blazing the trail into the unknown.
So far, I have to say this adrenaline feels healthy. I feel alive, challenged, stretched and like life has purpose again. We don’t have to jump off a cliff or blaze mountain-bike trails to feel adrenaline–we can have it by going after things we know we should do, but scare the hell out of us.
