What is a key element to make Adventure a fun part of your every day? Play!
Kara and I first met at a Burning Man Global Leader conference in San Francisco. We were both hanging out in between seminars. I saw her name tag with her company name – Playgrounding. My first thought was “she must be fun!” Although she lives in LA and I’ve live in New York, we became fast friends. Our business missions align, and it makes sense (at least to us) that other parts of our lives are also synergistic. She took my course (Develop Your Sense of Adventure Through Your Six Senses) and has been developing her sense of adventure ever since. When she decided to relaunch her podcast, I was honored to be asked to be a guest.
Everyday Adventures: Learning to Love the Unknown
Here is the link to her podcast: https://playgrounding.com/43/
Here are some of the highlights from our conversation:
Create your own path to change by taking yourself out on your own adventures.
One of the biggest lessons comes from asking yourself “What do I find fun?”
Adventure implies risk. Learn from failures.
If Stacey can do this…(I can too! Or what works for me)
“Once you start taking those baby steps, don’t underestimate what you could possibly be doing for adventures later on. Once you open that cage, all bets are off!” – Kara
“Just because I’m a grown-up doesn’t mean I can’t go do the things that turned me on as a kid.” – Kara
“I don’t know where Adventures will take me – I’ve let go of the outcome.” – Stacey
How do Kara and I see how Adventure + Play benefit people? We see it as coaxing the wonder we had during childhood out again, and falling in love with that part of you.
