Are you open to new adventures?
I’m flying to Thailand by myself the day after I’ve sent this article out.
Once there after 21 hours of travel, I’ll be with a group of people through my eWomen Platinum group out of Dallas. We all come from around the country and will meet up in Bangkok.
It’s called “A Retreat on Retreats”. As you know, I’ve hosted 3 retreats in Kauai and now one coming up in April of 2020, among the Vortex energy of Sedona, Arizona.
When Sandra Yancey, the Founder of eWomen first presented this retreat last spring, in a power point presentation, I got that knowing feeling, I was to be there.
To receive official training on hosting retreats, in a once in a lifetime location like Thailand, felt right that I be there.
Now, after everything that has gone on with my mom recently, I haven’t had the same kind of excitement about these new adventures. It feels too far away from home and from my parents. Fear has been coming up.
When I was in Toledo talking to my mom and dad about my trip to Thailand, they both encouraged me to go and enjoy myself. Twenty years ago, at the turn of 1999 into 2020, my parents went to Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Australia, as part of a mission trip through their church.
They were in their late 60’s then and loved all of their adventures. This conversation sparked their memories of their wonderful trip, as they shared stories about it all.
Flying alone, is something I’m used to. However, I’ve never traveled this far and with a time difference of 13 hours ahead of CST.
My excitement has returned as I read through the day to day schedule I received yesterday.
Therefore, remembering my friend, Lin Bruce and her “Yes I think I can” philosophy, is helping me today. I shared in another article about how Lin, at age 60, began riding her bicycle for long distances. Now, at 80 years old, she is still riding and continues to hit her distance goals.
To read Lin’s story, and perhaps ask her to speak at an event about positive mindset, look at her website:
Here are the 5 Keys Lin shares for saying “YES” to Bigger Things:
- Make a commitment
- Get help
- Find humor in the hard stuff
- Connect with others
- Stick with your commitment: recommit, recommit
Thank you, Lin, once again for who you are, your insights and moving through in spite of any fears you may have. Your “Yes I think I can” mindset is an inspiration to me and to anyone who may take the time to look at who you are and what you have accomplished.
Here’s to moving through our fears and limiting beliefs to create a life we truly love!~
Now, on to continuing to pack and then enjoy my many new adventures!
With love and blessings,
PS. Here are two photos of Lin. Contact her. You’ll be glad you did!
