I teach a class called Discover your Values and Create your Life Plan through Dabble and other venues, and the class inspires one to think about what their top four Values are and then listing out how to incorporate those value into one’s life! As a sole parent to my 9 year old daughter, I have found that one of my top values of Adventure has been a bit more limited in its scope over the last decade=-) More clearly said, as a mom I aimed to create a wonderfully adventurous life for my daughter—water parks, Great America, trips to Disney, local museum adventures…..yet they weren’t really the adventures of my 20’s=-) I realized that I needed to incorporate more of my own version of adventures into my live/our lives…..
Over the last few weeks I have been looking for “new ways” to do things or new things to try professionally and personally. It has been a lot of fun to dip my toe in different waters. This blog is one of them by the way!!!
Last Friday I was up quite late working on my website and listening to Pandora and a really great song came on. I thought, what the heck—I will dance to the song…..and I did. Then I saw my daughter’s bright shiny new custom made hula hoop by a local hula hooping clown (Mr. Petey) and I thought, well, let’s see if I still have it…..=-) My bulky sweatshirt was getting in the way of mastering my hula hooping moves, so I took that off and hula hooped to the song under the moon in our beautiful city of Chicago……
It was so fun, and I felt a sense of joy and freedom over such a simple little mini at home adventure, but I will always remember that night and thinking, hey, I still got it=-)
