I'm Not Lost...I'm on an Adventure!
Mindset is everything.
My husband and I moved to Asheville, NC after spending nearly 20 years on the coast of Georgia.
We knew every street, every intersection, every back road. We could easily play the, "Remember when (fill in the blank store) was (fill in the blank other store)?"
Oh, how life has changed.
We're in the early stages of learning our way around. We can usually get home without too much challenge.
For the first month, we were clueless.
Every time we ventured out of our house, we got lost.
But we decided something very early on.
We weren't "getting lost", we were "going on adventures".
We specifically and deliberately chose a different way of looking at it.
Because what happens when you get lost?
You get angry. You get frustrated. You berate yourself.
What happens when you go on adventures?
It's exciting. You notice everything. You stay calm. Most importantly, you maintain your sense of humor.
That one mindset shift has reaped huge rewards for us. We come home laughing now, instead of cursing.
And all we did was make a decision to reframe a thought pattern.
Moving to Asheville has been a grand adventure in every way.
Even when it takes us nearly an hour to find the grocery store that's just 3 miles away.
Sending you all so much love.
