Sunday Start: You deserve an adventure.
I’m keeping it short and sweet today. As you’re reading this, I am headed halfway around the world to South Africa. I’m meeting up with a group of women who I (mostly) don’t know and I couldn’t be more excited.
I travel a lot, but mostly with my family. When this opportunity came up I almost said no. So many reasons to say no:
- Lost revenue from missed work
- The length of time
- The timing
- I just took a huge trip over Christmas
But, in the end there was one very important reason to say yes: my soul was screaming yes please! Souls are pesky that way. They hoot and holler until we get quiet enough to listen.
I’ve been yearning to return to South Africa and do another safari. I love meeting new people. I love adventure and this trip offered all of that and more.
And so I said yes and right now I’m on a plane somewhere over Africa.

There will always be reasons in life to say “no,” but life is so much more colorful when we’re willing to say “YES!”
Here’s to adventure!
