My happily ever after…

Patricia Taylor, monthly adventure

I had it all.

The education, the six-figured income, the perfect guy, and all the toys I could possibly want – and living the dream in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I played by ‘the rules’ and jumped through the hoops like any good little girl should.

But then it happened.

One day I woke up on the other side of the bed and realized that I was living someone else’s dream.

It wasn’t the life I signed up for, so I did the unthinkable: I gave myself a permission slip to walk away from my life as I knew it.

I started living my ‘happily-ever-after’ when I rediscovered my childhood passion for ‘All Things Adventure’ – including putting myself into situations that made me feel uncomfortable by forcing encouraging myself into ‘direct experience’.

Yeah…not all adventures are fun, I noticed. In fact, a lot of them freak me out in so many unexpected ways.

But…these experiences change me.

Every. Single. Time.

And really, that’s what it all comes down to, isn’t it?  Change my mind, change my life, change the world?

I feel like I’m on what can only be described as the Adventure Diet because with every adventure I go on, I’m getting a taste of different worlds.

This is my happily ever after – what’s yours?
