In our busy lives it’s very easy to get swept away and lose track of what’s most important to us. Maybe you’ve never stopped and even set goals, but if you have and have skipped this step or you are about to set goals is time to discover your WHY. Goals must be informed by your why, and that why behind them is what will really keep you going in the long haul.
It’s been 3 months since we bought our season passes and we’ve been to the park 5 times so far either as a complete family or just me and my oldest. The plan is to go 3 more times before the season is over but anything can change, especially weather which can wash you out at any time!
Even though I’m a theme park veteran (see my first post on this) I’ve still learned some tough lessons this time around. My pain is your gain so I hope you take notes!
1. Pimp Your Map
As I entered the water park for the first time I realized that I didn’t need the whole map but I also had no clue where I was going. I had brought a Ziploc One-Zip freezer bag to protect my phone so I opened the map, ripped out the waterpark sections and voila… waterproof map!
I stuck this sucker in my swimsuit pocket and it never got lost despite multiple dunks in pools and water slides. As you can see, just a tiny bit of water got in at one point but it really didn’t ruin it! I did this on two more occasions and neither time any water got in at all!
Have you ever gotten this phone call? “Honey… the car is making this noise…” Uh oh! We need the car! The kids have to get to their game, I have to get to work, and we already have tickets to that concert next week! What do most people do in a moment like this? They take it to the fastest and easiest place that can fix it and often without a second thought. In this brief post, I want to share with you 3 reasons why you should a trusted independent mechanic in your pocket you can turn to in a moment’s notice. In each of these reasons I’ll be referencing a true story of a repair we needed done.
