Empowering. Exciting. Motivating. Surprising. Are any of these words, even just one, adjectives you could use to describe your day to your family, your friends, your co-workers? If not, how would you feel to be able use these words as a descriptor for your daily life? I bet most of us are pretty content with a day
we could describe as ‘good.’ Sitting at dinner and your husband or your son or your roommate or your dad asks “how was your day?” And, they already know how you will respond - “good.” We challenge you…“is “good” good enough?”
How about making a list of all the ways you could make your day “motivating” or “empowering” or “surprising.” Make a list of challenges you could conquer that would make that dinner conversation unforgettable instead of “good.” Where the pride and excitement in your face and the light in your eyes is contagious and unpredictable.
What are some ideas, you ask? They can be as simple as learning three new words in Mandarin to as extensive as taking on whitewater rapids in a kayak. You only live once, as the old mantra goes, so why not live the heck out of it? Go ahead, start that list and commit to yourself that tomorrow you are going to end the day with “exciting.”
We at Vela are pretty passionate about challenging, empowering and motivating women. We’ve been so lucky to share in the pride and accomplishment of other women’s awesome feats and it’s pretty darn contagious. We’ve shared a bear hug after a tough climb. We’ve high-fived after hitting a target. We’ve dusted each other off after a breath-taking rappel. We are addicted to seeing women conquer things they never dreamed of doing. And, we are on a mission to help you Surprise Yourself!
So tomorrow, we challenge you to change your day and by doing so take a baby step to change your life. Learn a few words in a new language, or take on those Class III rapids. Whatever the step you decide to take we are ready to give you a great, big high-five!
Vela is all about fun and adventure!
