Not as Easy as It Looks

I think acting is definitely one of those careers that we  idealize. We tend to only see the highlights of it but there is so much work that goes on behind the scenes. I, for one, found it really interesting to hear the inside story on the daily life, struggles, and rewards of being an actor.

I really love Sara’s passion and determination! If you want to see more of her work, you can follow her on twitter and check out her profile.

Following a Dream to LA

Sara is not your typical young lady. She’s actually what some people would call crazy and what we would call passionate. She  bravely made some major changes in her life so that she could pursue her dream of living in L.A. and becoming an actress. Although the journey hasn’t been easy, Sara says she doesn’t regret it!

Momma Turned Blogger/Fashionista

2012 bct

While in California, we were really happy that we got to meet and hang out with Natalia, a friend Christina had made via blogging. I think the kids also enjoyed it since they got to play with her two sons and their pet turtle. It was really cool to sit down and hear Natalia’s story of struggling to “find herself” after becoming a momma. Once she found what she loves doing, she ran with it and hasn’t looked back!

Kirk & Karla have a dream and passion for the future but they aren’t waiting until the stars align to start really living. Check out this week’s Challenge and tell us about how you’re living an adventure!

Making the Most of the Journey

While we were in Ohio, we got to stay with Kirk & Karla, who are long time friends of David & Christina. We had a lot of fun together and are so glad they were part of the tour this summer!

Kirk & Karla have a beautiful family (seriously.. two of the cutest, sweetest girls ever! :)) Even though they have a dream of working together overseas, they aren’t letting it cause them to miss out on their life right now. Find out how they haven’t let go of the dream that has always been a part of their lives together but are also embracing the journey to get there.

Living with a Motor/Adventure Mindset

Last week’s Adventure Challenge was to go the extra mile, bring something new to the table, and give an uncommon effort to reach your goals, pursue your dreams, and life your life to the fullest.

The inspiration for that Adventure Challenge came from Tom’s story about starting a coaching/speaking company that encourages people to do just that. They’ve done a few interviews with people who are really living out the Motor mindset.

Check out this story by Motor! We thought it really showcases what living an uncommon life looks like.

One (small) Step per Day

Have you ever felt like your dream has ended? Then you’ll probably be interested in seeing how Susan has overcome what, at the time, seemed to be defeat.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check out part 1 of Susan’s story here.

We really liked Susan’s advice of doing one thing each day to work towards a dream or goal. It’s a really good way to stay focused and motivated. Can you guess what this week’s Adventure Challenge is yet?

Shoot us a message or comment on this post if you decided to take on the Adventure Challenge! We’d love to know how it went!

When It Seems Like You’ve Lost Your Dream

Susan has actually been pursuing her dream for a while now. Most of the people we met on the tour hadn’t been at it for quite that long. So it was really cool to get Susan’s perspective and advice on chasing a dream. At one point, she almost lost it all but she didn’t give up.

We were so inspired by Susan’s obvious passion for the girls and babies she works with. While we were in Texas, we even got to see their new house and are so excited for them!

Living the Adventure

Last week’s Adventure Challenge was about living with open mind and being willing to try new things even when you never would’ve expected them. Basically, the challenge was to say, “YES!” instead of making excuses all the time.

One of the people we met this summer is really living that out! We were even able to interview him and tell his story here, on our blog.

Rick is in his forties and hadn’t been in a race for a long time. When a friend suggested racing in the Iceman Cometh Challenge, a mountain bike race, Rick didn’t use his age or current level of fitness as excuses. Even though he never thought he’d pick up his old hobby again, Rick started training just last year. Since then, he’s been in several other races and is now getting ready to reach his goal and ride in the Iceman Cometh Challenge this weekend! We think that’s way cool and are so excited for him!

I’m sure Rick would’ve never seen himself at this point just a couple of years ago. He made the decision to try something new and that decision has effected his life in multiple rewarding ways.

Check out his blog to find out more about his story and follow him on facebook and twitter to find out how the race goes!
