How can you “get out of town” this week, without leaving your neighborhood? Inspire Moment #116 offers encouragemet for you to take some time to think about how you can re-create the feeling that “getting out of town” gives you, without having to travel far at all. Here are some steps on how to start –
1-Take five minutes and jog your memory to think about a time when you travelled that made you feel wonderful, peaceful, excited, relaxed, etc.
2-What is it about that memory that excites you? Give that memory a name.
3-Think about a place in the neighborhood or nearby within driving distance that can help re-create that memory. Where is it?
4-Ask yourself – when can I go? Then schedule it!
5-Take an action step and go to that destination and bring the things you need to re-create the memory. Maybe it’s a journal, a backpack, camera, whatever it is, bring it with you!
6-Smile and let the moment happen naturally and see and feel how it brings you a sense of joy.
Remember, life is a journey, not a destination. Go at your own pace and enjoy the ride!
