The Urge for Adventure - OCTOBER 2016

 

HEY GUYS,
LAST MONTH IN THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE, I PASSED ON GREAT IDEAS FOR EXPLORATION, AND REASONS TO GET UP OFF THE COUCH TO PUSH PERSONAL BOUNDARIES.  PERHAPS SINCE WE’VE MOVED INTO FALL, AND THERE WILL BE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR HOLIDAY SOCIALIZING, TO BE OUT AND ABOUT BEGINNING WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITES “HALLOWEEN.” THIS MONTH I WILL SHARE A BIT ABOUT SUMMER ACTIVIES I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH, AND YOU WILL WANT TO READ THE ARTICLES ABOUT YOUR STLYE AND ATTUDE THAT MAY INSPIRED YOU TO BE YOUR AWESOME BEST.

So, then let’s get to October’s offering that can increase your physical activity or enhance your social skills of attraction and success. October is considered the Self-Improvement Month.  You might even learn something valuable about yourself. All reasons for getting out and off that couch.


The goal is to decide to discover or hone abilities you haven’t used in a fun way. Yes, there is a risk of running into ghouls and goblins and there is no telling what will happen, you might just have fun and enjoy yourself.
