Be The Adventurous Type // iPhone + Desktop Background Freebie //

I stumbled on this quote earlier and it really resonated with me. You can go through life being pessimistic, or you can go through life saying, "Heck, sure I'll try that, why not!" I sure had a really rough time for the first year and a half after moving from Knoxville to Dallas. I looked at going out solo and being social in a city where I knew no one, as an ordeal rather than an adventure. Once I was brave and finally put the adventure mindset in place, life changed. 

In Sex and the City, Charlotte tells Carrie she is terrified of being so happy, because no one gets everything they want. Maybe this quote is actually the key to getting everything you want. When you turn things into an adventure, you suddenly realize the things you want start to appear in places you never expected or even knew about. 

Be brave, have an adventure, not an ordeal. 

If you download this for your phone or desktop, 
I would be your best friend forever and ever if you would pin that image above!

***Note** Remember that with the iPhone5, your wallpaper will get distorted if you don't have "reduce motion" turned on. To turn "reduce motion" on:
Settings --- General --- Accessibility --- Scroll down and click "Reduce Motion"--- turn that ON
