Many of you would agree that the holiday season offers a variety of “adventures” to challenge our busy lives. The problem I have found is that the season’s “adventure” usually involves the juggling act of scheduling a year’s worth of events and tasks in a four-week period. And, no matter how much I organize or plan ahead, I am always running around like a crazed person all of December.
So, just as the holiday season creeps up on us, we were so excited to get going with our November/December Vela Adventures outings. Excited, but challenged at the same time because it’s the time of year where we women have even less time for ourselves. Convincing YOU to take time to experience a TRUE adventure outside of the hustle and bustle and stress of this time of year is quite a daunting task. However, our outing today was all the more rewarding for this reason.
Fencing & Fine Art was one of the outings we were most excited about and it didn’t disappoint – what an exciting and unforgettable day. It was such a thrill to learn the art of fencing, swing around a sword and then compete in a real duel where electronic bells would ring if you landed a shot. Empowering, challenging, exciting and memorable…now, that’s a TRUE adventure.
After sweating through an unexpected cardio workout, a.k.a fencing, we sat down to paint. It was a lift to our hearts to listen to our customers talk about how much fun they had, how they never would have dreamt of trying fencing and how proud they were that they did it. What a poignant conversation piece they were going to have to talk about at dinner and over the holidays.
We, at Vela, often talk about our love of seeing that glow of pride and accomplishment from our Vela customers, and we definitely saw that today. What’s more, during this time of year giving women a day that’s all theirs makes our job all the better. So, we encourage you to find some true adventure just for
you this holiday season. It may be a cold-weather hike, a language lesson, a dance class, a cooking class…anything that empowers, challenges and excites you is the true value of adventure.
Vela is all about fun and adventure!
