Give yourself permission to shake things up – to let go, be spontaneous, take an unexpected opportunity – to live a little on the wild side.Penny Webb
One weekend, I, along with our Kinwomen friend Rose decided to go on a crazy, fun 48-hour reconnaissance mission to check out what the trip opportunities could be for others to visit a country town Kinwomen were going to visiting and speaking at in a few months time. Our only objective was to meet the people and places of our destiny town and specifically to find the hidden, second-hand treasure shops and towns along the way.
So two busy working girls packed an overnight bag and fled mid-morning on a Friday, leaving family and responsibilities behind to explore. We had no agenda, no time constraints – other than work on Monday!
We met so many fabulous people, discovered the op-shops, cake shops, food-farms and family businesses… and found the best bed and breakfast host and home to lay our head. What a treat it was – to give ourselves permission to get out of life’s structure and routine.
I think we all understand that there is a need for structure and routine and boundaries for most of the time – its called ‘everyday life’, but we also need to give ourselves permission to shake things up – to let go, be spontaneous, take an unexpected opportunity – to live a little on the wild side.
Thanks Penny for your words of encouragement to have fun! I needed to hear that!! I’ve just spontaneously got myself a ticket to the Kalamunda music festival tonight! 🎉 More fun than sitting at home watching TV! We need to make the most of each day as we don’t know how many more we have! 🤣
