Ready for the Rocker? You Had Me at “Hell, No!”

Ready for the Rocker? You had me at Hell, No!
 

You’re not going to think about limits.  It doesn’t matter if you think you can afford it, if you’re brave enough to do it, or if you know how.  All you’re going to do right now is dream out loud.

Ready to retire to that rocking chair on the porch and gaze off into the sunset now that the kids are grown?  Me neither!  This is where the good stuff starts.

You’ve devoted your life to your kids, your partner, your job, your community.  Maybe you’re about to be an empty-nester.  Maybe you already are.  Maybe you found yourself lopping off big parts of who you were in order to make the choices you’ve made along the way fit.  Maybe, just maybe, you’re finding yourself saying “now it’s time for me” …

Choosing to realign your goals and wishes to be more focused on you isn’t selfish, and act two in your life doesn’t necessarily mean slowing down.  What do you want to do for the first time?  What. do you want to take back?  What do you crave?  Where do you want to reinvest your energy and passion?

 

So you’re ready for an adventure …

Maybe a big one.  Maybe one that will change your life.  But where to start?  There are so many things to think about, and maybe it seems like it’s just too big to -really- be do-able.

Your first job is actually quite simple, and an awful lot of fun:  you’re going to tell your own story to make it real.  You’re going to describe that perfect moment, that perfect place, that perfect adventure.

Close your eyes.  Picture what it looks like.  How do you feel when you’re there?

That’s where you start.

You’re not going to think about limits.  It doesn’t matter if you think you can afford it, if you’re brave enough to do it, or if you know how.  All you’re going to do right now is dream out loud.

When you’re ready, click on the Your Journals link in the menu up top (scroll way back up), and press the Create New Doc button once the link opens in a new window. (Here’s an example of one I’ve started for myself, with some helpful tips tucked in).
Ready? This is where the magic starts … 😉

We’ve put together a handy kickstart checklist here.
