life is full of wonderment

Wednesday Word

April 20, 2016


I’m so ready to travel. Hawaii later this week, and then the world in the years ahead. It surprises me how few places I’ve actually visited, particularly Hawaii because it’s paradise and you don’t even need a passport! This Wednesday Word No. 64, courtesy of Sneaks & Stilettos, is all about making a commitment to venture out of the norm and let your curiosity lead you. When I look back over my life when I’m in my 90s, I want to chuckle and smile at all the little journeys I went on and all the things I gained that money can’t buy. No doubt, traveling enriches your life. Research shows that travel can actually keep our brains and bodies healthier as we get older. Through travel, you also realize that life is a wonderful gift. It reminds me of the saying, “Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.” I literally cannot wait for this vacation, the beautiful sights that await in Honolulu and on the North Shore, and, most importantly, creating priceless memories with some of my favorite people in life, ever. I’m ready to take this pledge. Are you?
