If not now, when?
That simple phrase has been my guidance and inspiration in my journey towards becoming a “yes” woman. Yes, I’d like to learn how to wake surf; yes, I want to eat freshly caught raw scallops; No, I do not know how to lead a bootcamp class, but yes I will do it in front of 70 people!
And now my journey has led me to the starting line of a cross country road trip. While it’s something that I’ve always heard is an amazing adventure, and everyone “should do it at least once” – I never really imagined that I would have the opportunity, or will, to actually do it myself.
So when my boyfriend casually mentioned that his Dad would make the cross country journey with him to get our car to the West coast for our 3000-mile-away-move, I instantly came to the defense saying it was something that I wanted to do as well. And so our planning began, to route out a map to places we hadn’t been, food we hadn’t eaten, and adventures we yearned for – with some extra cautions to avoid break ups or break downs. Hypothetically speaking of course (2 weeks in a car with your S.O. is a damn long time no matter who you are!)…
Above all, we want to inspire you to seek adventure along the way; so that when the opportunity comes knocking, you’ll be encouraged to take it!
