Hey everyone! I’m not sure why past Janelle thought starting a second blog was a good idea, as I’ve been spending all my time adventuring rather than blogging in either place, but alas. Here’s a post to let you all know I am still alive despite multiple terrifying moments.
It’s a victory cry, a declaration, albeit a somewhat surprised one.
Each time I say it the words feel unexpected, as though I didn’t believe I’d be able to say them.
But if you’ve been around me at any point during the last 6 weeks or so, you’ve probably heard me say them often… after jumping off a bridge, or tumbling out of an airplane, or running off a cliff, or taking an unexpectedly sharp curve on a motorcycle, or sliding backwards off a waterfall.
I have been adventuring, and challenging myself at every point to do all of the things I’ve always said I’d like to do “someday.”
Because someday never comes unless we make it today.
Because other people have gone before me, reached out a hand to me, and shown me how to feel alive again.
Because I’ve endured the worst imaginable heart-shattering pain and betrayal, and… I’m still alive.
