So we’ve all heard of FOMO (fear of missing out.) With all the social media going on these days it’s easy to get jealous of what others are doing and to feel like you’re not doing enough or are missing out. Well this summer I think we should all change that and our mindsets. Let’s move the conversation from FOMO to GOMO (going out more often!) It’s such a simple concept but makes so much sense.
Having just moved to Seattle this past fall my list of things I want to do and see at this point is pretty long. There are so many hikes that I want to conquer in and around Seattle such as Ebey’s Landing in Whidbey Island, Oyster Dome near Bellingham, Colchuck Lake and Perfection Lake in the North Cascades, and Lake Louise in Banff National Park. I don’t know that I’ll get to all those hikes this summer, but I can sure try!
I’ve also signed up for yoga at the Chuhily Glass Museum, next to the Space Needle. I haven’t been to that museum yet but I’ve heard so many great things about it already.
Every summer camping is always high on our list. Some friends of mine are starting to plan a camping trip for July either in Bend, Oregon or somewhere along the Washington Coast, possibly Second Beach.
As you can probably tell I really love the outdoors and it was a major reason why my boyfriend and I moved out to Seattle. The amount of outdoor adventures you can have is truly amazing. And in addition to the outdoorsy things I love to do, I like to check out Eventbrite to see other events that are going on in and around Seattle. They have a free event planning software where anyone can create events for free and even sell tickets and track registrations. It’s a great way to spread the word about fun events going on.
So let’s all commit to Getting Out More Often and making the most of this summer! I will do my best to blog my summer adventures and can’t wait to hear what you are all up to too!
