The Urge for Adventure - November 2017

Nov meaning.jpg

Hey, Guys,
Last month in the October issue, I passed on some great ideas for exploration, and reasons to get up off the couch and create your own personal magic. November offers even more off the charts gathering with friends and family,  parties, one-on-one encounters that encourage new and original ways to engage with people that you have known for a long time or  with those who are new to you. Yes, November is another chance for you to shine and to become more of your awesome best.

 Engaging in activities this month might surprise you. You could even find some shockingly latent information or abilities you might have tucked away in the attic of your mind. So here are suggestions to help kick-start your plans for fun and adventure in November.
