This past weekend I took a long overdue trip to NYC! I was excited because I haven't been since 2011, and every year since I left I kept saying, I'm going! About a month ago, I decided to book a ticket. No matter what. I'm thankful for how well it worked out, but it re-confirmed a previous frame of though I developed when I was younger: Go For It! Live the Adventure that life is!
Now I can be transparent and say, it might be a little idealistic being that I don't have kids or a husband to tend to, but its just how I really feel deep down inside. Adventure isn't about breaking the bank or even going around the world. You're not required to escape your life to be adventurous or go on adventure. I believe adventure takes faith, discomfort, and a passion for more!
When people get stuck doing the same routine, going to the same places, and having the same type of experiences, it will get old; you will get bored; and you just might feel sucky and dried out. Its the times when you go to a new part of the city, workout at a new location, meet some new people, eat at a new restaurant, or for me, buy a random groupon to do something on a bucket list, in which you feel invigorated. The spark of spontaneity and change can have a positive affect on your mind and body.
Your joy increases as a result of new stimulation your mind and body receive. Your adrenaline gets going. Through adventure you are honoring your spirit because you are choosing to awaken it to the possibility of resonating at a higher level.
Spending even 4 days in a city full of lights, laughter, winter, protests, passion, love, anger, trash, and raw talent just does something to me! Going to see a Broadway show with a great friend I haven't seen in a long time, just does something to me! Adventure is awakening! Above all, adventure is transformational.
BE Adventurous. BE Awakened~

One of the most beautiful realizations in life, is that you don't have to live it alone. If you have an open mind and open heart, you GET to willfully allow others in your world and share life with other BEautiful BEings, whether they are family, friends, or lovers. Of course the reality is that humans are imperfect, and we will all experience our share of disappointment and wrongdoings imparted on us by others, but that is a part of life. Sometimes people use this reality as a reason to not be around people or make connections with others. I know holidays can go three ways for most people. There is excitement because you can spend the day(s) with some of your favorite people; there is slight solemn because you feel like you have no one, and will be alone; or there is stillness because you've decided it's a day off, and you choose to be to yourself, relax, catch up on movies, shows or reading.
Well today, I charge you to do something, that connects you with others. Regardless if you want to stay in, or if you feel alone, there are billions of people out here, spreading good love and energy. You yourself can spread good love and energy, and enhance this human experience. No matter what, we are all connected, and when we put ourselves in a position to laugh with, enjoy the company of, or encourage one another,it's a beautiful experience. Healthy human connection and interaction also enhances our lives! We are not meant to be lone creatures, and on holidays, there are people all around you who want to experience that joy, fun and laughter!
Think of at least one time when you were around one person or a group of people, and it just felt so fun! Your spirit was at ease, your energy was high, and your soul felt like it expanded! That is a BEautiful feeling! You may not remember everything about that day, but you definitely remember moments and how you felt because BEautiful experiences (and even not-so-beautiful experiences) leave those types of marks on us! Go ahead! Go out, have fun. Meet someone new. Give someone a compliment. Go laugh and spread your BEautiful spirit. We all need a little sample of it!
