Taking a Rocket Risk ala Mary Mcellehattan’s book,. Going where my heart’s desire is. Fuflilling my bucket list. It may be my last hurrah; but I am going. Learned a lesson. Don’t wait for somebody else to do it for you.
Create your own happiness. Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. It’s your decision. It’s your life. You don’t need somebody else’s permission even if you would like to have it. Don’t lose the moment. I am not going to let anybody else’s opinion spoil your day or days spent where you only dreamed of being before. Being yourself is not necessarily bad and is actually mostly or all good. Most of us have been raised to seek somebody else’s approval (and sometime it’s even the world’s!) before doing something.
Don’t cloud a life time experience by being scared, afraid, or unhappy because somebody else doesn’t want you to do what you want to do. Unhappy emotions are for the most part useless unless they are part of the grieving process. Yes, I may be scared when I announce my intentions. Just as people have different tastes in movies and music, they have different tastes when it comes to choosing a lifetime experience. Do you have a certain food that you dislike and you can’t even stand to see it on somebody else’s plate.? Liver (and onions) is something I enjoy, but I don’t have much company. Are you always eating where someone else wants to eat as you don’t want to make waves and it’s not that big of a deal. anyway. Move over Rover, there is a new dog in town.
Experiment! Campaign for your choices when you are with someone or a group. How often have you listened to yourself when deciding on something to eat. Do you wait to see what others are
going to order first? Have you ever thought, “My, wouldn’t that taste good.” I even eat snails and of course all kinds of mushrooms including those we pick ourselves during mushroom season. I have to agitate someone to get them on my pizza!
Planning a life experience like I am. Go ahead fantasize the best trip ever including every thing you want even if you are not sure how you are going to get it. It doesn’t hurt to be prepared if someone asks you what you want. It’s your trip, it’s your budget. What do you like best about visiting some other place? I like to get to know the people and taste the food. I like for my trips to be multipurpose and accomplish more than one of my goals. I want to be met by a local and showed around by a local. I want them or someone knowledgeable to set my itinerary. I want to really experience the place while I am there.
Do you want to go through life saying , “I wish I could have done something.” That negativity can last for a lifetime. Who is being negative about this. You oar someone else? Is it,”If I feel bad about what you are going to do, you should feel bad too and have a miserable time planning your trip, taking your trip, and talking about it after.” Secretly they may want to ruin your whole life by being this way about things you want to do. Does someone in your family have this power over you? To whose benefit is it? There was a cartoon character that always had a rain cloud over his head. This could be you if you let this happen.
“If I am not happy, nobody else is going to be happy!” Have you heard that before? Does it have to be true? How about having a good time anyway. Happiness is a choice and it’s yours. Don’t listen to this sort of thing. Don’t let this happen! Some people are self-sacrificing and if they don’t let themselves do or have something, they don’t want you to either!
