It’s wheelie time!

There comes a time when you have to stop talking about it and go for it.

You have stayed long enough.

It is time to break camp. Dust off the duffel bag and get rolling. Throw coffee on the campfire and put those boots to walking.

You have dreamed about it, thought about it, planned for it, saved for it, told others about it and can’t get it off of your mind. Why? Because you were made for it!

It’s yours. It’s a gift with your name on it. Don’t just sit there looking at the bow and wrapping paper. Take hold, dig in and unpack the promise that has been waiting for you to come and explore.

You have stayed where you are long enough. The waiting is over. The new day has dawned. The wind is at your back and the waters are perfect for sailing.

Today is the day that you step out, take a leap and fall into faith not knowing what waits around the corner but whatever it is, game on!

How exciting!

Sure, you can stay where you are and wait for the ants to move into your supply kitchen and the smoke from the fire to blow in your face or …..

Or what?

What is it that calls you out to the great unknown?

Where is your sense of adventure? Did you pack it with your first-aid kit? At the rate you are going, there was no need to pack it either.

Get out where the road rash rules, the stumbles are a given and the sunburns are a reminder that you are alive and well!

Come out from under the shade tree. Saddle your donkey, straddle your hog and kick that motivation into gear!

Lay a scratch, kick up some dust and pop a wheelie! Our creator has mapped out a great adventure full of ups and downs and all arounds.

Stop poking the coals and start pocketing some memories that are dying to be lived!

Move on!
