Mystery Intrigue Adventuring

My friend arrives today for our Mystery Intrigue Adventure. She’s had an overfull plate in Life’s buffet line lately, and could use some celebration. I’ve planned and reserved three days and two nights of relaxation, events, and food around her interests. I’ve also included a couple stretches of her imagination in there. She has no idea where we are going or what we will do. All she has to do is show up.

But she is enchanted.

And she said Yes.

We’re both Daphne, by the way.

Have you ever been offered a mystery by the universe, in which you had zero idea of the details? And although you were enamored, you needed more information than to just show up?

So you said No.

 

Every day is a universal mystery, full of possibility. But as captivated as we might be with the possibilities, we first walk along the outside the buffet. We examine what’s being offered. Then we decide if we want to get in line with our plate. Or not.

And although we do have some really great adventures, we also deny ourselves fabulous mysteries.

When the universe offers you something tantalizing, say Yes. Follow the mystery. You don’t have to finish everything on your plate, you’re just encouraged to try it.

As for me, I’ve gone MIA–Mystery Intrigue Adventuring. I’m celebrating my appetite for joy.

 

Here’s a potluck buffet item I passed over for years. When I finally gave it a chance, I discovered it was life-changingly fabulous! Now it’s requested of me at every family gathering. Who knew?!?
