My first post on a new blog. It feels like a lot of pressure. If I don’t blow you away you may never come back. On the other hand if I go too far and impress you there will be this unspoken expectation. Either way I am just going to try my best to bring you the best of Kelley and this experiment I am involved in called life. I won’t ever say “Oh I am a travel blogger”, or “I blog about food because I have such a sophisticated palate.” The truth is sometimes I am out of town and sometimes I’m not. I eat fantastic feasts and then sometimes I eat a fried fish sandwich from some greased up diner. I am busily being happy where ever I am and I want to share that. I am fortunate to be surrounded by people who enjoy an outstanding adventure, at home or abroad. My goal here is to create a window where happiness can flow in and out. Perhaps I can spark an idea that adds to someone else’s existence. I don’t believe I can tell you HOW to be happy. Maybe you are happiest in undies watching “Magnum PI” reruns while eating cheese sandwiches. I won’t judge you. I celebrate the fact that you know what makes you happy and you are doing it. Every day I encounter people who don’t realize their own ability to control the happiness in their daily lives. I want to help people change that perspective.
If you truly strive to create happiness for yourself you will be pleasantly surprised with how the universe conspires to help make it happen. In my own life, what could have been viewed as a disappointment actually grew into the chance to more easily do the thing that makes me happiest… TRAVEL!!! Yes, I often have to change my plans at the last minutes or spend long days in airports but it just adds to the adventure. I can’t find reason to complain because when I pictured the life I wanted, the ability to hop on a plane and explore new places with the people I love was a huge part of the vision. I think there was also a jet and access to private watercraft but I am being patient with that part.
Each week I am planning to share something about what I have been up to or ways to be adventure ready, so I need you to plan on reading it every week. I can be random. I may eat way too much sugar and talk endlessly about it. There may actually be some (or many) grammatical errors. Get over it. I might proofread while I am laughing with my husband Frenchie, simultaneously texting with my BFFs Mango and Mandarin so it may not be perfect. I promise to try and keep my “cusses” to a minimum because it highly possible my momma is my #1 reader!
