A Thought Workshop for Defining and Empowering a New Personal Story • Are you in transition or expecting a transition and not sure where to go from here? • Are you looking to reconnect with yourself? Figure out what it is that you want in your life? • Is it time to take inventory of your life, where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to go?

What we're about

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. ~ Helen Keller

Hello! I have lived in the Northeast area before, and recently moved to CT from the Dallas, TX area. There are a lot of treasures in the Northeast, from History, outdoor adventures and many others that we can do and enjoy in this area (and beyond) that don't cost a lot of money, that we can do from afew hours, to a day or more.

I have created this group for Dave & I to be able to do with others those activities on our bucket list, that we have wanted to do but have not had the chance to, or we have been afraid to do. Its to also share with others activities and events we have done before, and learn about other activities that we would like to do, to take me and others out of our comfort zone into new adventures.

This group will be for all members to participate, since everyone has that one or more thing(s) that they have always wanted to do, and perhaps put off due to being afraid, or not having others to do it/them with. Therefore if you have an idea/suggestion for an activity on your bucket list please let us know. An event will be created, and you most likely will host that activity event, or we can find someone to do it for us.

Activities where children can be involved will be indicated as such, and if age specific to also indicate so. This will also be family friendly when activities can be so.

As such all members joining are REQUIRED TO POST A CLEAR PICTURE of themselves: For security reasons, organizers to know who is going to the event, also many times there a many members with the same common names and so differentiating for organizers is good, and also being a social group so others know who you are.

Some of the activities or events will be:

- Organize and or host an event: Any event, Charity event

- Horse back riding

- Budgee jumping

- Sky diving
