I feel like I'm in a rut and its not a fun feeling. I need change and I need it now. So, when I was given the opportunity to read Barbara Ann Kipfer's latest book, 1,001 Ways to Live Wild, I jumped at the chance. How could I not? It sounded like the perfect book to help push me into trying something new and exciting. Perhaps, trying to "live wild" would help me out of my rut?
According to Kipfer, living wild is about experiences that bring more passion, thrills, and courage into your life. Her 1,001 suggestions are meant to inspire people to "get out there and live" and/or "jump-start a new beginning". She's urging you to think about what it is you want from your life. Her whole concept to "live wild" is focused on trying to push you into " living a freer, more joyful and fulfilling life". Sounds pretty great, doesn't it?
Here are a few of her suggestions:
- Dance in a public fountain.
- Write the opening sentence of your debut novel.
- Help someone today.
- For a day, give a flower to every person you know.
- Invent a new sandwich made from you favorite foods.
- Compete in a poetry slam.
- Learn how to make pasta in Italy.
- Travel with no destination and simply focus on what you see, hear, and smell along the way.
- Go ice fishing.
- Volunteer to a be magician's assistant.
