Gosh, what an adventure today has been! It’s been one of those adventures where I really wasn’t sure whether I’d manage it, but I did (and it feels GREAT!).
Today I had to think my way around a WordPress short-coming : as far as I can tell, you can’t add a sign-up box for a mailing list on a WordPress.com site. A bit of lateral thinking brought up the following solution : create an image that people can click on, and then link the image to a list management service (like Mailchimp). So, you should be able to click on the image and it take you through the sign-up process …. which it does! *Jumps-in-the-air-whilst-clapping-her-hands-and-exclaiming-a-thoroughly-British-accented-HURRAH*
My second adventure was to play with the Mailchimp process until I’d worked out how to auto-send my free training programme to those people who sign up to my mailing list. It did take quite a bit of heavy-duty playing, but I got there in the end! *Not-even-a-whiff-of-a-meltdown-from-the-former-techy-Meltdown-Queen*
Oh, and the third (I am so excited that I nearly forgot the third adventure 😛 ) was to put together the product itself! Thanks to my webinar adventures earlier in the summer, I was able to put together a 3-part training programme ; it feels fabulous to be sharing it in this accessible format .My daily adventuring has brought me so many benefits that I really wanted to spread the word about Everyday Adventuring ~ and now I’m doing it! *Smiles-from-ear-to-ear*
So, here’s me bubbling with excitement on today’s video (and do feel free to click on the image to get access to the free 3-part training ).

What adventure really means.
The benefits of living adventurously.

Until then, I am just going outside and may be some time 🙂
Today an unexpected opportunity for adventure presented itself 🙂 . I was supposed to be interviewing my brilliant friend Tiffany Kay about her new book but she got poorly. I sat down and decided to listen for a call to adventure (I haven’t tried this before!) and sure enough some words came straight to mind : “quantum jumping“.
I’ve only recently heard about this personal development technique. It sounds a bit mind-boggling at first when Burt Goldman (the developer of this process) talks about visiting your own doppelgänger in a parallel universe but I found the idea enticing. I would have the opportunity to visit another version of me, in another universe ~ a version of me who had already succeeded at something I’d like to be successful at in my own universe!
Whether you believe in the theories of multiverse or whether you simply trust the imaginative and wise capability of your own unconscious mind (and see Burt’s invitation as a metaphorical process), I would recommend giving quantum jumping a go.
You can find out how I got on with the process in today’s video ~
This morning, as usual, I took my dog out for a walk. I take him on the same route most mornings. When I got back to the house and closed the door behind me, I suddenly realised that I’d “sleep-walked” the whole way. It was like I was walking a memory of a walk, my body had been walking but my head was elsewhere ~ not really paying attention, not really present, not really fully aware of my surroundings.
So, for today’s adventure, I turned right around and headed back out to walk the route again. This time with my eyes open . This time opening my awareness right up and waiting for something to catch my attention.
Watch today’s video to see what happened! (I took some photographs of the things that caught my attention : you’ll find more images below the video 🙂 ).
On today’s show, I’m talking to my friend, Leslie Marsh, about all things shamanic. If you’ve ever wondered what shamanism is or wondered how someone gets “called” to be a shaman, then this show is for you! Leslie describes the tools of a shaman in a really accessible way and gives us insights into how shamanic practices can support a journey of healing and transformation.

As my TV adventure is starting on Wednesday, I thought I’d have another go at making a trailer but with a new twist! This time I am trying my hand at making a video with a voice over.
This adventure involved a fair bit of intensive fiddling and experimenting with Windows Movie-Maker . I know all this modern tech is supposed to be “intuitive” : the only conclusion I draw is that, at some stage, my intuition must have been removed! In the absence of the obvious, I resorted to my normal “push-any-random-button-and-see-what-happens” approach.
This is what I came up with after 10 minutes of playing 🙂 .
Today I decided to have an adventure in my coffee break 🙂 To be more precise, I decided to make the experience of drinking coffee my adventure.
I did a little bit of research about how coffee connoisseurs do the whole tasting thing and then gave it a whirl. The experience made me realise that I really hadn’t been tasting my coffee at all before!
(Top tasting tip : if you’re going to try this, make sure that you taste the coffee black and unsweetened. Additions such as milk, sugar and syrups cloud the palate!)
