Today is the first day of spring. As I wrap my scarf around my neck, slip on my down-filled coat and reach for my gloves, I wonder “What happened???” It’s more than half-way through March and I’m tired of being cold. My feet have been freezing for the last four months.
So, being the queen of positive attitude, how do I turn this around? How do I find something good in this?
I know! I’ll play a game. Something fun that I learned from my good friend, Mary Helen. Here’s how it goes:
Find a pocket of time when you can explore and embark on a new adventure.
Climb into your car. Drive in any direction for 20 minutes. When you come to a stop sign, flip a coin. Heads you turn right; tails you turn left. Drive another 20 minutes, and when you stop, flip the coin again. Heads you turn right; tails you turn left. Drive 20 minutes again. Then stop, get out, and explore the area. Of course, first and foremost, make sure it’s safe. When you have decided it’s an OK place to explore, tighten up those shoe laces and walk around the area. You’ll discover all sorts of new things.
Now, feel free to adjust the time so it fits your surroundings – you get the idea.
And if you don’t have a car, or you’d like a little variety, try this game on foot. You can discover new neighborhoods, shops, restaurants, trails, parks – the list is endless.
So when you’re ready for a little adventure, and lots of fun, give this game a try. Make it your own. The end goal is to have fun and discover new sites you didn’t even know existed.
As soon as the cold wind stops blowing and the mud dries up a little, this is the first adventure I’m going to take. Hopefully warmer weather will be here by June!!!
