This year I committed to read a minimum of 2 books a month on various topics. I prefer hard copies to kindle or audible but yet this proves a challenge when I travel without having purchased the books. I then miss opportunities of reading during the free time which is a missed opportunity.
On my last trip in Eastern Uganda, I traveled along with 2 books which I looked forward to read. I read Jovita Babiryes “The Pursuit of Adventure – Breaking barriers” which I enjoyed. As a matter of fact, I did not put the book down until I had finished reading all her pursuits. It is a small book with 81 pages which makes reading easy, you can do this in less than an hour. Reading this book got me feeling like I was right there being part of the various adventure activities.
The big ‘take home’ for me from the book was that in life I need to push the limits and do that which is scary because therein lies the opportunity for growth. If you are scared of starting that business, taking on that task, engaging in an adventure activity… this book shows you that in life you need to push the boundaries and dare yourself. Knowing Jovita, the activities she engaged in as shared in this book do not come off easy or natural for her personality.
