Is it for Comfort or Safety?


For Isabelle, a day in the wilderness has always been a day of adventure and fun. Despite the approval she receives for her drive to explore, Isabelle is always cautioned to be aware of her capabilities. “You never know what you will see out there. It’s exciting and it will motivate you to try new things but it’s important to consider what is possible and what may be a danger. ”

Isabelle understands the importance of being safe, but she yearns for new experiences to excite her spirit. Isabelle is used to hiking and now, she is looking to do more than just hike. She’s motivated to climb the rocks and take a daring jump into the river. As Isabelle considers her new idea, she starts to think of her capabilities.

This will be my first time climbing, how tired will I be when I get to the top? Will I have enough energy to swim? Maybe I should pack a life jacket, so I won’t sink.  I’m going to invite my brother to keep me company, just in case. Isabelle’s mind starts planning how to be adventurous with success. She wants to successfully try something new and be confident that she isn’t committing to a mistake.

For Isabelle, deciding to go rock climbing and swimming would be a step out of her comfort zone. Inviting her brother and planning the supplies to bring assured her that she would be safe, even if she was trying something for the first time.
