Spring time shifts how the sunlight enters our house. I returned home midmorning, planning on writing my blog. As I looked for the perfect patch of light, I wondered what I would write about. It is almost always a mystery until the words find a way to each other and form a story. Our small kitchen table was perfect for discovering the unknown I brought my lap top, calendar, and phone. My office was complete. Just the dogs and I were home. Everything was perfect until I knocked over my mug of coffee and coconut milk all over my lap top key board. It was totally soaked.
That day, I had to do something to stir up the energy, not just in my mind, but my body. It felt like low energy was filling up the space around me. I needed a little something to make me feel awake, alive and inspired. I put the challenge out to my family, what activity were they up for? We all love being outside, but I needed something out of my comfort level. I knew that if I did something with a little fear factor, it would wake me up.
The answer was easy... Zip lining. I have always declined zip lining on family vacations. I don’t like the height, or the lack of control. Perfect; two things for me to work on, letting go of control and letting go of my fear of height.
Reservations made! I unpacked my suit case and began to look forward to a new adventure. As soon as the commitment was made, I felt better. My body and mind responded to the idea of an adventure. I felt lighter. A heaviness disappeared and things began to flow.
