The Gift of Adventure (#31DaysofBlogging)

This blog is a part of a series #31DaysofBlogging … we are going through the year (2015) chronologically.

This fall we finally got back into our groove after the chaos of this year. We started writing a lot more...and we were working on a secret LULLABIES album this fall too. But we weren't just writing songs that were lullabies. We were also writing songs that reflected on our experiences throughout the year. We told you a few days ago about "Quit Worrying" which was a song that came out of the trials of this year. 

But after we wrote that song, we wrote a song that was inspired by the adventures of this year. We got to have a lot of adventures this year. We went overseas to play for the troops, met tons of new friends in Canada where we got to do things like jump off cliffs and swim under waterfalls, went paddle boarding for the first time, went on last minute road trips, became adjunct law professors, and so much more.

Adventure is a gift. It can change your mindset, your morale, and your momentum.

So in November, we wrote this song called "We Go Running" all about adventure. It's about being tired of the mundane and needing a change. It's just a fun, feel-good song and we had fun writing it. 

Writing songs is what we love to do. We love how therapeutic and healing it can be. We will continue to blog through the year this December, but as we begin to approach 2016, we will live by a line in the bridge of this song that says:

The best days are in front of us...and we won't stay, where we're stuck..

Maybe you need to join us in living by this motto? The end of a year/beginning of a new one is the perfect time to leave the past behind, learn from it, and move on. 

See you tomorrow!
