Best in Living in the Moment and Making a Difference!
Think about it. … When we were kids we could not wait to go outside. Our imagination took us on adventures. When our parents, grandparents and teachers read to us the stories and pictures took us to places all over the world. It was amazing! Oh, I used to dream about all the places I wanted to visit. The people from the other parts of the globe seemed to live different lives from me. I was always intrigued. What were some of the places you wanted to visit?
What happened? Many of us have forgot about those dreamy adventures. Well, in our day to day goings and comings It happens to all of us. So…
My thought for the day is…take a lunch break outside. Pretend it is an adventure. No one will know but you!
Here is a You Tube video I made when I needed a break from my working day!
Hope you are thinking about dreaming, adventures and “Getting Outside” just for awhile. Today is the only day we have. Live in the Moment! Adventuring into a moment filled with a chance to escape for a short break could be a good thing!
Let me know what you did. Keeps me ceating new , ideas. Oh, one last important thing…subscribe, please! Don’t want you to miss out on what we are planning for the next few months. Exciting!
