So let me be honest here, I’m not going to say I freaked out about the typical things upon reaching my 30th birthday. I’m not fighting for sleep because I’m plagued by thoughts that I’m getting old, I’m not married, I don’t have kids, blah, blah, blah….It’s not that I don’t necessarily want those things someday because I might, but I’m more concerned that I need to pick up the pace when it comes to adventure. I’m determined to make this the decade in which I replace worry with laughter, conventionality and practicality with the whimsical, and most importantly find ways to succeed every day in spite of the must-dos we all face. It’s not like I can take corporate hiatus and travel the world for a year, so instead I’m going to reinvent my world. Stick with me and you’re bound to find my successes and my failures…and maybe, just maybe, some inspiration for your own escape from the ordinary.
Hi I’ve pretty much decided to do the same thing. We can’t all be like Elizabeth Gilbert and take off for a year, although I pretty much did that after I finished uni in what people now call their “gap year”. I just jumped in my car today and drove two hours north to the amazing little town of Morpeth, Australia. It felt so good. Numerous disasters hit as soon as I arrived home but I had such a perfect day.
That’s awesome! I love impromptu getaways. I’ll definitely have to check out your blog for some fresh inspiration. Thanks so much for writing.
