Welcome | Bienvenue | Bienvenidos

Welcome to Beyond Ordinary: The Blog!  I realize the name I've chosen is quite bold.  I mean, who proclaims to be beyond ordinary?  Especially someone who looks and sometimes feels quite ordinary.  But the purpose of Beyond Ordinary is to encourage each person to tease their limits, venture out of their comfort zones and live a life less ordinary.  Dreams live in all of us.  They don't have to be grand to be worthwhile, they just have to be yours.  And with this project, I put myself out into vulnerable space, with the hopes that it will inspire you to do the same.  Let's reach beyond our comfort zones, beyond the ordinary, and have some fun.  

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

The focus will be exploring.  Whether you've lived in the same town all of your life, or are constantly looping the world, there is more to discover and more to share.  So with the goal of sharing, inspiring, creating, documenting, and urging to action, I present you with Beyond Ordinary: The Blog.
