If someone gave you $1000 how would you spend it?
I think I’d put it in a trip fund for a future adventure.
If you could run away for a day and the cost was paid for, what would you do?
I’d go to the Grand Canyon and take a tour, there are many ways to choose from. A few: sunset tour, train tour and the one with a helicopter ride got my attention.
What is your favorite travel destination?
Mine is the beach and I’m lucky to be close enough for day trips to the Oregon Coast.
At times I heard Utah wasn’t a pretty place. I’m from Portland, OR and it is beautiful here and so is Utah.
It’s a different kind of beauty. I was drawn by the fields & desert that go on for miles with the majestic snow-capped mountains in the distance.
Experiencing things and places in person can give us a different perspective or view.
During the Holidays being open to what “comes” our way makes the season more delightful.
Let’s be on the lookout for delights and add more enchantment for others by being open to what comes.
Has fear held you back at times from doing something you really want to do? You aren’t alone. Ways I have worked on this are:
These were amazing learning experiences for me and it felt great to dial down the fear and go for it! That's me below lifting off in a helicopter at sunset at the Oregon Coast. What a ride!
Life is busy at times; the weekends are even busier than the weekdays for us. This last few weekend was packed full but we made sure to fit in some fun.
We hadn’t been up the gorge for a while so we cruised up to Stevenson Oregon and had lunch by the river. It was great to fit in some fun between all the responsibilities needing to get done.
Let’s remember to fit in some fun between the hustle and bustle in our lives.
One day I was writing notes for a group I do and I realized I hadn’t checked in on my big why for a while. I was surprised how somethings were the same and some had grown.
One of mine was having adventures small to big and tapping into my younger self. When we are young we look at things with wonder and joy and I want to continue to experience this even in my 90’s.
Let's tap into our younger self and see the world with wonder and joy.
When my Honey & I stopped for lunch at a casino. The casino had a card you could sign up for and it gave us $5 off our meal and $5 to play. We won a few dollars then it was time to eat. After lunch we still had some free casino card money to spend. I chose a new machine and won $38. It was fun to play for free and leave with some extra money in our pocket.
Let’s be open to receiving unexpected treasures that show up
When I realized I wanted to guide people by sharing what I had learned including tapping. Then in walked Helen McConnell into my life. She continues to believe and mentor me on this journey.
She wrote a book I love: 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now To Profoundly Change the World. It’s a book on changing the world by changing ourselves. This is one I keep around and continue to go through. It often has ideas that pop out at me. One that did today was on page 3:
“Hiding your true self away is a lot of work and takes tremendous energy. Energy that you could be using for something important!”
It has been a go to for me to hide myself away but I want to share what I have learned and to do this I need to be visible and true to myself. Onward on my journey to guide.
Friends are gifts that come into our lives and bring us joy and companionship.
Let’s be open to new friends in our lives.
This is me hugging a new friend (a roo) at the Fall City Wallaby Ranch. I was a bit nervous at first but he was gentle, sweet and kind.
What is your adventure energy number, choose between: -7 to +7 & beyond
Take three deep breaths and say: I want more adventure energy
Start tapping on thumb point and say: More adventure energy
Take another deep breath move to the next point and repeat this through all the points on the picture below. After the last point take a few deep breaths and check your number repeat this until your number is a plus number.
Congrats on tapping!
While honeymooning in Washington I searched for things to do in the area. Something unexpected popped up, The Fall City Wallaby Ranch.
Our next adventure was calling to us. If you want a hands on experience about wallaby’s and roo's, this is a fun gem to visit.
Have you experienced Angels on earth, I think these people did on there wedding day:
When we hide from life, we miss living it. Life's full of wonder, let's enjoy it.
Write, ponder about: What life events you have coming up in the next year, are you moving, having a child or becoming a grandparent or empty nester and do you feel excited, nervous, curious?
When we have new life events it can be a beautiful gift full of wonder and joy. With this often comes change and this can sometimes feel stressful.
Let’s release the stress and be open to new amazing life events.
