When you're open to adventure, you've opened the door for opportunities from unexpected places.  It also means you're excited and ready for anything. Ask yourself,  “Would my life be better with a little more excitement and adrenalin flowing through my body because I’m anticipating great things happening at any moment?”  

Be open to everything and attached to nothing.  Live your life by your own rules.  Have fun every day.  Have outrageous, creative friends.  Live every day like it’s your last.  These aren’t clichés.  This is your life.

After filing for divorce, I told myself I was going to be bold and say yes to opportunities and try new things.  This lead me to selling many of what I thought of as “prized possessions” and moving from my home in Palm Springs to Mexico with my boyfriend of a few months.  That definitely was a new adventure and quite outside my comfort zone.  It was a good thing because I really did need a pretty big jolt to get me out of my old patterns.  

Letting go of my possessions, I moved from a posh resort area to a little town with one paved road with cows and other farm animals walking in the street.  Totally changing my lifestyle was a great adventure.  It wasn’t easy or fun all the time, but it was the best thing I ever did.  

My life from that point on has been one adventure after another.  We ended up getting married and living in Mexico for the next 6 years.   Today I am an author and speaker, I believe, because I made my life an adventure.  

Be conscious of how you spend every minute.  Don’t waste your time with meaningless or menial activities.  It may mean giving up a certain amount of control and perfectionism so you can go with the flow.  Say yes to new opportunities. Learn to delegate.  If you don’t like doing something or don’t do it well, see if there is a way you can hire someone part time to do it.  There are high school and college students who work without pay for school credit.   Contact a school near you to see what kind of programs they have.  

If you do a lot of things that could be done for minimum wage, hire someone.  You’ll earn much more than their salary with the time you’ve freed up.  First on my list were a maid, a bookkeeper and a personal assistant.

Action Step Do Something You’ve Never Done Before

See things differently by releasing the rules you’ve set for how you live your life.  By doing this you’re allowing your brain to function in new ways.  Using “my life is an adventure” as an affirmation allows you to handle life’s ups and downs in an easygoing, more impersonal way.  

Spending time with kids is a great way to add adventure to your life.  Have you every seen a 10 year old that couldn’t find adventure in about 5 minutes.  Hang out with your kids for a day, doing whatever they want.  Go crazy.  If you don’t have kids, I’m sure you know someone who would be happy to lend you theirs for a day.  They may even be willing to pay you!
