Counting Your Blessings

Saying Thanks!

Take a moment to reflect on how much you have to be thankful for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly!

Being Grateful

Think about how you feel in being grateful! Health and Happiness. Good and Positive. How does your mood and attitude change for the better, right!

The people you love. The experiences you are grateful for. The memories you cherish.

Matters of the Heart

Your Love Life

Over the past few months I have really delved into the heart of the matter!

  • Discovering my passions.
  • Coming from a place of love.
  • Following my heart.
  • Giving from the heart.
  • Following my path.
  • Journeying along.
  • Creating my story.
  • Doing more of what I love to do!

Yes making money and getting ahead is great! Yes attaining status and financial success is rewarding.

For me lately when I live and love from my heart am I truly happy! Pleasure and health. Fulfillment and joy. I communicate, interact and connect with my whole being in discovering my passions and strengths! 

It is exciting and energizing! The inspiration and creativity. The possibilities and opportunities! The collaboration and connection. It is actionable, impactful and most of all powerful!

The sharing of your gifts and talents with yourself and others! You interact and connect to others. It is motivating. The power of one becomes many people working together to build relationships and form a sense of community! 

You realize your potential and strengths! The learning and developing. You realize your passions and what you love to do! The growing and experiencing. You go after what you want and desire! 

The nurturing and nourishing of my whole being is a true blessing that I am grateful for! It helps me delve deeper within myself to learn more about who I am. It makes me want to reach out to share with others and learn more about them. The love, belief and trust I have in myself is such an intimate and bonding experience with my whole being! Then taking that one step further to communicate, interact and connect with others is a whole new experience in love and trust. The building of a relationship and bonding with another person is a true act of giving from the heart!

Hanging Out

 Quality Time

When I talk about hanging out I am talking about real communication, interaction and connection! 

  • Socializing and visiting.
  • Dancing and partying.
  • Cooking and eating.
  • Being active and playing.
  • Being a tourist or going on tours.
  • Volunteering, training, or teaching.
  • Shopping.
  • Getting creative and crafty.

The possibilities are limitless!

I love sharing a meal with friends! The getting together. The sharing of what is going on in our lives. The making of eats and drinks. The sitting down at the table to eat, share and connect!

It builds and strengthens relationships! Conversations and Laughter. Stories and Memories. Interaction and Connection!

That being fully present with each other when you are together! It is not easy to do at times due to technology. It is doable though and attainable if you make being fully present a priority. We should be fully present, especially for our greatest someone(s), right! 

It helps in communicating, interacting and connecting to one another! It helps build that emotional intimacy to flourish and experience growth. It creates presence in being present with our whole beings! 

It helps in staying healthy as well as happy in maintaining a social life! Strengthening social skills to communicate, interact and connect with a broad range of people. Building broad social relationships. It is so important to surround yourself with people you care about for love and support!

They will be there for you no matter what! They may even help and support you in eating well, being active, gaining experiences, etc!

Sharing Is Inspiring

Creating,

Writing,

Connecting

Blogging and writing has burst my bubble and blown my world a little more wide open! I enjoy sharing my experiences with my readers, especially life experiences. Plus I gain NEW! perspectives when my readers share back with me their experiences. I am learning more about myself and my whole being through this experience!

  1. I enjoy the sharing and the inspiration.
  2. I enjoy the motivation and the engagement.
  3. I enjoy the growing and the empowering.
  4. I enjoy the love and the happiness.
  5. I enjoy the emotional and the spiritual.
  6. I enjoy the joy and the celebration.
  7. I enjoy the teachable moments and the lessons.
  8. I enjoy the growth and the change.
  9. I enjoy the experiences and stories of adventure.
  10. I enjoy the journey and the creating of our stories.

When I first started blogging I felt vulnerable and was unsure just how to put myself out there! I am glad I did it though and learned humility and humor along the way. I take it in stride and have fun with it and laugh. I love being creative and expressing my passions!

I am supportive and share myself and my experiences! I am willing to learn and gain knowledge. I am open to developing and experiencing growth. I am all for inspiring and being a positive force!

I love that my writing connects and that I am not alone in what I am experiencing! Sometimes I need a new perception or perspective. Sometimes I need those teachable moments to learn from. Sometimes I discover that I am communicating and discussing the same thing that someone else has been thinking about. It is so relatable at times!

I love reading and getting lost in a great story! I enjoy reading other blogs due to the connection and the support as well as the inspiration and making me think. For me reading, writing and photographing is so transformative to me! There is that exchange of connecting and experiencing with myself and with other people.

Why Do You Share? What Do You Experience From That Sharing? Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share!


The BEST Parts Of . . .

Traveling,

I love hitting the open road and seeing where it takes me! I enjoy getting on a plane to journey to far away destinations. It is about shifting into a much lower gear and slowing the pace down for a while. I enjoy escaping the four walls I live within in my personal life and especially in my professional life!

I love learning about new cultures, history, places, and people! I grow as a person and gain life experiences. I really try to ask questions first before just making judgments. It is okay to lean in, be open and experience the different, the interesting and the unique!

I love seeing the natural beauty that countries have to offer when traveling, adventuring and exploring! Yosemite and Yellowstone. The Coast of California and Oregon. Beautiful Cities to Bucolic Country Sides. Just takes my breathe away and leaves me in a state of shock and awe!

Adventuring,

I love experiencing the NEW! as well as going back to places I have already been to adventure and explore some more! Adventuring is discovering what I am made of and discovering my strong.  Adventuring is growth in shaping who I am and what I want to become as I learn and experience life. It is about BEING in the moment, experiencing what life has to offer and making those memories that last a lifetime!

Sometimes adventuring is about the SIMPLE! A walk on the beach, a picnic lunch, strolling through green spaces, checking out an outdoor market, watching the sun set with a drink in hand, etc. I love getting away from the “tourist attractions” and going where the locals go to hang out!

Exploring

I love being curious! I enjoy interacting and engaging myself and my whole being. I need to engage my five senses and be aware of what is happening to me and around me. It is about living for TODAY and just GETTING OUT THERE!

Do you talk to strangers, locals or other travelers when you travel? I have had some great conversations with perfect strangers. I never know who I will meet and those conversations make for some great discoveries and experiences! I discover more about a place by interacting and engaging the locals as well as other travelers who have been to that place before. I experience different cultures and ways of living and share my culture and experiences too!

I love experiencing the New! and stretching myself, my boundaries and my comfort zone! Like that saying, “Do Something That Scares You”. DO that and MORE!

Creating

Traveling, adventuring and exploring is a part of creating my story in living my life! It is about experiencing memorable places and people. It is about making memories that last a lifetime. It is about being open to experiences, stretching my comfort zone and just discovering more about who I am!

 

Sharing

I love sharing my experiences through writing! I enjoy giving back to the communities I have experienced through my writing in telling others about the community and what there is to see and do. I also support the local businesses and stay within the community. Nothing better than armchair traveling!

Torn

I CHALLENGE You

To Not Plan

Your Day Today!

I arise in the morning torn between

a desire to improve the world

and a desire to enjoy the world.

This makes it hard to plan

the day. ~ E.B. White

Good Luck – Enjoy!


The Writing Process

One Word At A Time . . .

I LOVE writing, especially creative writing! I receive so much pleasure from authoring my blog, Craves Adventure. My blog gives me lots of practice in writing. Who knows all that writing may produce that book I dream about one day!

The two hardest and greatest aspects of writing are . . .

  1. It takes hard work to write, especially creatively.
  2. It takes courage to put myself out there as a writer.

The Writing Process

First and foremost identify what you are passionate about!


Traveling


Adventuring – Hang On!


Exploring

I am passionate about traveling, adventuring and exploring. I wanted to write about my travel experiences and share those experiences with other people.

  1. Prewriting
  2. Writing
  3. Responding
  4. Revising
  5. Editing
  6. Publishing and/or Sharing

#1 – Prewriting

I have two favorite parts of the prewriting process. I find that inspiration that sparks my creativity and speaks to me on pretty much every level. I enjoy doing the research on a subject. Prewriting helps you identify the purpose, form and audience.

Then comes the brain dump. I dump the data and start the writing and creative process to formulate a post. I find this method most helpful in minimizing writer’s block. I find the creating part more free flowing.

#2 – Writing

The actual writing is where the organization of the post comes together. I also find my voice along with the fluency of the post.

#3 – Responding

I do a self review and evaluation of the post. I usually read through the post and then set it aside for a day or two before reading again.

#4 – Revising

Then I start the revising process of the post. I think I spend too much time in the revising process. I like to refine and reorganize the post multiple times. However, this gives the post clarification in that it reads well.

#5 – Editing

I am pretty good when it comes to the editing of post. This is when I pull the post together and add photos that help tell the story of the post.

#6 – Publishing/Sharing

I enjoy the sharing of my writing now. When I first started I struggled in putting myself out there, especially my true self. I like to take the time to create and develop my website as well as add in the social media aspects to share and reach a boarder audience of readers.

Thank You WordPress!

I love that I can schedule my posts. It really helps me in having a writing schedule to determine how many posts a week I want to publish and share.

Please Share Your Writing Process, Love to Hear!


The Act of Connection

With Yourself and Others

Just Think About This!

I know I feel like there is nothing I can do with certain things revolving around my world! I am pushed and pulled as well as disrupted and distracted enough in my daily life already. However, in some way we all are affected and we all have an impact too! I believe in taking the time to nurture and nourish ourselves and others in the hope that we can make a difference in some way.
