Last week’s theme was about looking at one thing each day from a different perspective. This week is about taking one action each day to create a real life adventure. Thanks to beeblu for this suggestion. (Stop by her site to read some fantastic poetry.)
Let the games begin!
A small group of us (6 gals) got together today and the conversation turned to ways we can weave a bit of inspiration into each others’ lives. One thing led to another, and we created an adventure:
Each one of us will come up with seven small actions that would bring a smile to someone else. Every day next week we’ll each receive an email from one of the other gals in the group with one of these actions to complete that day. At the end of each day, we’ll email each other to see how things went.
Actions will be things like; ‘Go Christmas caroling at your neighbour’s house’, or ‘Buya coffee for the person behind you in line’, or ‘Talk to the check out clerk and find out how their day is really going’.
So, the action for today was setting up the adventure for next week. Merely setting things up was an adventure in itself in the excitment it sparked within us.
Life is an adventure, let’s have some fun along the way!
It’s cold. He never meant to be outside this late. He rubs his hands together trying to keep the circulation going.
Headlights in the distance. He gets ready.
As the car approaches he sets his sign on the ground against his backpack.
A rush of wind as the car speeds by him.
How long before the next car comes?
He begins to doubt himself, his decision to take this journey.
Squatting, he hugs his legs in, burying his head.
The low rumble of a trailer truck coming closer.
Maybe this time…
