It’s August 1st, I bet I can guess where you want to be. The beach! Right? The last time you visited the beach, did everything go exactly as planned? If not, you’re among good company. Despite all of our best efforts and checklists, we might miss a small detail that turns into something more. It can be very frustrating because the anticipation has been building up to reaching our destination.
Perhaps it is time to take a step back and think about how those little unplanned moments help craft the eventual adventure. It is great when things go as planned, but we can’t and shouldn’t always expect it to happen that way. We must remain flexible. What really matters is the adventure (and having a good time – especially with family).
I’m very excited to ask you all on our next adventure together, “Beach or Bust” (ebook – the paperback will be launching soon). This is our third adventure connecting with you and your family. I know you’ll be able to relate to this story. Remember being at the beach is all about relaxing and having fun. Don’t let the little hiccups distract you from what’s truly important.
Back to school time is rapidly approaching, so extend your summer mindset for just a while longer. The beach is calling. We hope to see you there.
This story was locally inspired over the many trips I’ve taken Folly Beach, South Carolina. It’s just down the road (so to speak) from Charleston, South Carolina. There are plenty of other great local beaches as well, but it’s the one I visit the most.
