Motherhood -Ditch the Guilt & Embrace Adventure—Benefits for Family, Relationships, & Personal Growth!
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Zion Ponderosa’s Women’s Adventure Retreat, in southern Utah, along with 10 other women of all ages, locations, and personalities. Together, we tried things we’d never done before—from rappelling to zip-lining to a helicopter tour of the awe-inspiring Zion National Park, to simply spending a week with a group of women we’d never met before! I was inspired by this experience, and it got me thinking about adventure and motherhood. How many times do we say “no” to adventure because we’re “too busy,” “have too many responsibilities,” or are just too swamped with “being mom?” Yet, adventure is an important part of becoming the mom, and person, we desire to be—not only benefitting us but our families, too.
