From Ordinary Days to an Extraordinary Destiny

Aloha amigos!

Back in September 2011 I began a blog series titled “31 Days of Adventure:  From Ordinary Days to an Extraordinary Destiny.” My pre-Hawaii blog is private, as the journey was such a raw experience from the start that I wanted to begin anew with “Island Gypsy Hawaii”. However, I felt this particular blog post was worth repeating here. I hope you find a bit of encouragement through it for your own journey on this adventure of life.

(11.27.2011) Yesterday I shared that our family is embarking on a big adventure in the coming days but rather than overwhelming your mind in a-way-too-long-to-write single post, I will be sharing this journey through a series of posts.  (It’s more fun that way, anyway, don’t you think?)

Dreams Passed Down from the Last Generation

Sometimes there’s so much to a story that you just don’t know where to begin.  And that’s where I found myself as I pondered how I would share this journey with you.  Then today I was in the garage rummaging through old photos when I came across a letter my Grammie (Great-Grandmother) wrote me on my 16th birthday.  I thought it would be the perfect way to begin the story of this adventure called “my life.”

Our Dear Sweet Gypsy —

May you be as sweet at sixty as you are now that you are sixteen.

May you be as intelligent at ninety and all the years in between.

May the ladder you climb reach to the stars and moon.

May you wrap the rainbows around you like a butterfly nestles in a cocoon.

May all that’s happy and good follow you from room to room.

 

We love you,
PaPa & Grammie

Are you facing a time of transition? Wondering about your “destiny”? I recently read a good book that emphasized the importance of remaining curious. We may not know what our “passions” are but we can always find something that sparks interest in our souls. Then perhaps after we dig a little deeper we uncover what we were created for in the first place.

Thanks for letting me take a look back at the beginning of this adventure…

Livin’ la vida aloha,
Jennifer
