Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
We hope you are having a happy day and a great Halloween. As children, this holiday represents dressing up as someone else, snacking on spooky treats, and having fun with friends. There is something special about breaking from the routine and playing the role of someone (or something) new. There are goblins and ghouls, beasts and frightful creatures around. There is magic in getting scared, squealing with a mix of glee and fear, and sighing from relief that you’ve survived!
As adults, much of that magic has washed away. We do not always love that rush of fear. We’re not as open to playing a new role. We are more likely to sigh from relief than squeal with glee. We know it’s important to push beyond our comfort zones, but it’s not as easy as it used to be.
At Happy Living, our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of the world, one person at a time. We believe that facing our fears and stepping outside our comfort zones is part of leading a happy, healthy life. Because of this, we are excited to announce our first Happy Living Epic Adventure!
We are hosting an inspiring and luxurious retreat, Sunday, March 8 through Saturday, March 14 at the Secrets Aura resort in Cozumel, Mexico. A small group of participants will join us for a unique getaway: learning and relaxation, adventure and happiness. Challenge the boundaries of your comfort zone… in paradise!
Our co-host is Karen Conover, a fourth-degree Black Belt Tae Kwon Do Master, who you might recall from her Something Significant interview. Karen will use martial arts techniques to guide participants through several “face your fears” activities, including self-defense and board breaking. The retreat includes a “choose your own adventure” mix of yoga, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, zip-lining, rappelling, and a yacht trip with deep-sea fishing. We will also examine the teachings from Brené Brown’s book, Daring Greatly, and discuss how we can each live with more vulnerability and courage.
This is an all-levels retreat for adults who are looking to squeal with a mix of glee and fear… and sigh from relief with your toes in the Cozumel sand! We hope you will join us!
