Daily Adventure Tales is work in progress, just as I am a work in progress.
Unexpectedly, I suffered long-term effects from a severe bike accident and chose to retire at fifty-two from a corporate job in technology. Despite it having been my decision, I hit the skids afterwards trying to figure out my new identity and place in life. Traditional “retirement” didn’t feel right, and physically and mentally, I wasn’t the same as I had been. So I started trying to do some small new thing every day to see what resonated with me. I called them my “small daily adventures”. Also, despite having loved public speaking and having had a history of designing and presenting seminars, I found myself being newly self-conscious because my mouth shape had changed from the accident. To practice speaking more clearly, I started making videos of myself talking while alone on hikes. I met others while hiking and interviewed them too. I realized that most people didn’t notice my speech problem and I loved going out to find other adventurers. That was the germ of the idea for my podcast, Daily Adventure Tales.
It helped me so much, I started Daily Adventure Tales as a blog and a podcast to see if others also resonated with the idea of daily adventuring. I hope to find and grow with other daily adventurers while I’m exploring my new role in my own life.
The future: Together we can have more fun and meaning in our lives
Connections are a vital part of this process, so please join in with your own adventures, thoughts and comments. I’m really looking for us to gain from the strength of a community as we share our thoughts and learn from each other in an ongoing adventure to discover what makes us feel alive and meaningful today. Let’s explore together.
I’m truly grateful that you’ve taken the time to come read. I hope we can get to know each other and ourselves though this journey.
I’d really like to know,
What’s your story?
