It is the ideal that we recognize when we need something
different in our lives; and, that we embrace a change. It is, however, much more common for us to sense that something is not right or could be better; but, do nothing or little about it. Often, it takes a significant event to shock us into the realization that change must take place.
Andrehugosplace for living life’s adventure exists to embrace fellow readers and share what can be the best years of life.
Individually, each of us must take control of his/herself and not be afraid to change course. When something is not quite right, we should bravely move to make it better. It is the experiences in the journey through life that make it all worthwhile. Exploration is essential.
I have been blessed with incredible followers of my daily photos and occasional blogs and articles. This past summer presented me with a number of challenges that made me decide to refocus. My new plan includes improving my abilities in these, writing and photography, and other areas. Hence, I will reduce the frequency of my posts and give greater stress on the quality in topics of mutual interest.
In the past 4 years, beginning at age 63, I discovered that I could meet the challenges of moving to a new country and learning a new language. I now spend my life almost entirely in Spanish. Reasonably fluent, I will now take classes to perfect this ability. Communicating in the language of the people and places you visit enormously enriches the experience.
Also, I am a terrible guitar player. My brother inherited all the practical talent in the family. I slash at the strings in a way that only those who love me most will say is nice. More time to learn and practice music is, therefore, on my new agenda. Immersing oneself in music can be a beautiful, almost spiritual experience. Have you tried it? Remember, you don't have to be good to benefit.
Giving, helping others, is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone could have. In fact, in almost all endeavors, sharing, helping others, provides benefits to the giver. However, this can be exhausting and distract you from your own personal needs. Be conscious of this possibility.
Never forget to take time to pamper yourself. A happy, healthy person has much more to offer the world than does one struggling with life.
Sometimes, a change of emphasis from one activity to another or even just changing the time in your schedule may be all that is needed.
I invite you to continue to be with me on my journey and hope that you do all that is necessary to build your life adventure. Do not be afraid to take action as you decide may be appropriate. And, share with us, your fellow travelers, as in sharing there is personal growth and joy.
