Have you found yourself asking what day of the week it is? After a year of wearing masks, not being able to travel to see family and friends, there’s no wonder it all seems like a big blur. And FYI, you are not alone!

So many people I talk to are experiencing a general malaise, a feeling of lethargy and apathy with very little motivation and energy, or excitement. They are realizing just how important it is to have something to look forward to! Something to be excited about.

If this is you… maybe it’s time to add some adventure to your life.

Think about a time when you were excited about an upcoming trip over event.

Do you recall the energy and excitement you had just thinking about it?

Even the smallest road trip to the city for dinner or a show… now that we can actually dine-in restaurants and attend live theater.

Sometimes the smallest adventures are the best adventures!

Think of a time you met up with a friend you hadn’t seen in years. You might have had dinner, shared great conversation, got caught up on your lives. A small, but very big and meaningful adventure! You were both inspired, felt rejuvenated simply by planning a trip to reconnect.

Sometimes it’s the spontaneous getaways or visits that help reinvigorate your soul.

A surprise visit from your kids or grandkids. They might have no idea just how much you needed those hugs and smiles after all of those months.

You can do the same for others too. Who do you know that could use a surprise visit even if for a few hours for a cup of tea?

Have you ever thought of how is it living with a vacation mindset every day?

These adventures…

  • Don’t have to be planned.
  • Don’t have to be expensive.
  • Don’t have to be grandiose.
  • And it doesn’t even have to involve travel.

What could you plan this weekend that would put the sparkle back in your eyes?

It could be something as simple as going fishing, hiking, biking or a barbecue with friends.

Anything you would enjoy.

Anything you can do to change the momentum, something that will get you excited, something you can look forward to.

Use your imagination, your creativity to get out in nature, to be with family and friends, to help you change it up and remove the blur in your life.

What you love to do, where would you love to go, who would you love to see that you haven’t seen in at least a year?

Tomorrow morning, I’m getting on a plane for the first time in over a year to meet up with my siblings in South Carolina for a few days. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see them, talk to them in person, and give them each a big hug! I can hardly wait to just be with them … nothing else… Just be together!

As a Lifestyle Designer, I help people step away from the ordinary to create extraordinary experiences as to create memories that will last a lifetime.

By challenging yourself today to try something new, to put something on your calendar, you will feel a shift, a new excitement, and a new zest for life, that may have been missing.

Try it! And let me know what kind of adventure you are planning sometime soon.

Don’t wait!

And oh, by the way, it’s Tuesday in case you forgot! That means you have just three more days until your next big weekend and next big adventure!

Enjoy life! Remember it’s entirely up to you to design and live the life you love!
