We prepare for many types of disasters.   And that is a good thing.  Being prepared is helpful.  Over-doing is not helpful, but having smoke alarms, fire escape plans, and being aware of the weather can literally save our lives.  We know that, so we prepare.

What if we prepared for the best things in life too?  What if we took some of that same kind of energy – knowing we can literally save our lives – and made sure we are prepared to have beautiful days and lovely nights.  Our blood pressure might go down.  Our satisfaction with life might go up.

We can make adventure maps along with our escape plans.  It is just as important to plan for the joy in life.
