Adventures are how we grow and realize the hidden strengths that inside of us.
Think of Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz. She learned so much about herself with her adventures.
Glenda the Good Witch tells her at the end, “you had the power to go home from the very beginning”, so Dorothy of course asks, “why didn’t you tell me?” Because Glenda said, “you would not have believed it. You had to learn it by yourself.”
The same is true for us, and adventures is how we learn what are powers are.
