I know – I know – you’re saying, ”What the….? Where is Jacque anyway?” Well, folks, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you….but I’m gonna try anyway. I have been on a whirlwind journey of insanity!

The year started with the Sun N Fun Fly In – where I volunteered for over 7 days! Whew….then straight into the Up Up And Away Balloon Festival volunteering…..then BAM – right into a 6 day trip out west to adventure in the wilds. YUP – I have been busy as a bee.

The whole point of Chicks With Ticks is to empower and encourage others to have adventures and be brave and all outdoorsy and stuff – HOWEVER, even the best of us get caught up in the habits and events of everyday life. So, I want to give you a few tips on how to get your GROOVE BACK and get out there…

First – Stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW – I mean it….right now stop. Put your hands in your lap. Imagine something nearby that seems fun to do or has interested you but you haven’t taken the time to do it.

Second – Go take a shower – get dressed – AND DO IT.

It starts with a step – just one step. And, while you are basking in the happiness and positive vibes you feel when you go do it – think of a slightly larger adventure. It doesn’t have to be hiking the Grand Canyon (which I did!). It can be going to a state park you haven’t visited.

Last – I want you to share your adventure with others – yes – share share share – tell them all about the good and the bad and the in between. Get them excited about your newly found sense of adventure – AND IT WILL SPREAD!!

SO, before you reply to that email, or post that snarky remark on Facebook or watch that kooky TikTok – Go do something fun. Have an adventure – and spread the spirit.

Next time, I’ll share about my life changing trip out west!
