WHEN DID WE GET SO FUCKING SCARED?

So this is it.

Everything I feel like I have been working towards…maybe my whole life starts tomorrow.  Dramatic, I know.  But true.

I think I may have always been a little different than the average bear.

In life, I have always leaned towards the fun in situations.  In fact, the first portion of my work life was working with kids.  Running programs for them on cruise ships and at camps.  I loved it.

The ability to create a special place, a community, where they could re-invent themselves.  Be someone they never thought they were.  Push themselves in ways they never thought possible.

Change in the most beautiful ways.

All from just showing up and joining in on the fun.

Whether it was a water fight, practicing a skit, capture the flag or the amazing things that happened around that campfire, they were able to dive in first to the fun.  Let go of their inhibitions.  Be in the moment and just enjoy it.

Close their eyes and trust that everything was going to be just fine….

When did we stop doing that?

When did we give up our child-like curiosity?

When did we give up the NO FEAR attitude of a new adventure?

When did we stop looking at this world as a place to explore?  To embrace?  To climb all over like a jungle gym?

When did we get so scared of everyone around us? 

When did we buy into the fear?

It is time that we stop.

Because as I have said so many times before….

“What starts in fear will never end in love.”

When we move through life based in fear and the idea that it will hurt us, it probably will.

When we move through life based in love, you never know what amazing will show up.

The love for yourself.

Love for who you want to be.

and

Love for the world.

That is why I have created The League.

Because I want to start creating these experiences for adults.  And why not for singles?  A time in your life where you could use the push, the community, the fun and the reminder to begin in love.

So let’s fucking do this.

It is time to get passionate about life, make new friends, find the fun and start creating the life you have always wanted.

For you and for the amazing people (maybe someone special) you are going to meet while you have your adventures along the way.

ps. I think one of the scavenger hunt participants said it best…

“Fear has ruled long enough in my life. What do I mean? Fear of what people think, fear of going to hell for (just about anything), fear of not finding love, fear of not pleasing people enough, fear of being homeless, fear of losing my job, fear of my child dying, fear of not having a man….and the list is endless. This hunt has shown that by conquering fears, like lunch alone by myself, I will survive and grow in the process. Giving into my fear, I lack courage. I want to leave a legacy to my daughter to be fearless. Part of being fearless is being vulnerable.”
