"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way." Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel)

I always loved this quote from Dr. Seuss. All of his books helped me inspire me to imagine what could be possible. My adventure dreams are coming true on safari! Here is #4 of the Big 5, African or Cape Buffalo. We saw them at the end of the day and it was such a treat!

"The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn." David Russell

People keep asking me how close were the animals when we were on Safari! They were so close that I could take selfies with the animals!

I loved seeing elephants, actually, I loved seeing all the animals. It was incredible. I took more photos and video than on any other trip in my life. 
Thank you for all your comments! Lisa

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." M Scott Peck

My two favorite things on safari in Africa were seeing baby animals and seeing animals cross the road. I loved seeing this baby elephant cross the road with its family. I decided to make an entire video of just elephants! We saw so many for so long and it was beautiful to watch them wander together.

"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." -TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot

We saw leopards three days in a row! 
This leopard was in the tree with a kill (Thomson's Gazelle)

I have video of the climb to the top of the tree carrying lunch.

Shabbat Shalom! We all face curves in the road and so I wanted to share this post from  Seth Godin called "Difficult Decisions"https://seths.blog/2018/08/difficult-decisions/

The photo is from my trip to #Africa. I love the wide open spaces. There is room to think!

Seth Godin's "Difficult Decisions"
These are the decisions that are forced on us, the ones that feel unfair, the ones where there are no seemingly good outcomes.How to proceed?Acknowledge that it sucks. That you’d rather not be in this situation. That it’s not what you hoped for. You can return to this step as often as you like, but don’t permit it to have anything to do with the other steps in the process.Consider the sunk costs. The things you did to get to this point, the hard work and investments you made to have what you had until recently. Now, ignore them. They’re sunk. They have no connection to the decision you need to make.Outline your options. None of them are as happy as you’d hope. None are perfect. All involve a measure of discomfort. That’s okay, because that’s what’s on offer. Write them out.Now, consider each option based on the future, not the past. Ignoring the sunk costs, ignoring what you deserve, which of these options offers you the happiest series of future days, weeks and months? Choose that one. Don’t look back. Go.

"The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place." Barbara De Angelis

Seeing lions was a true highlight of my safari. I never imagined that we would see so many or be close enough for selfies! Talk about a bucket list day--we saw 8 lions this day and saw leopards on three days!

"Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." Robert Louis StevensonI hoped that when I went on my very first safari, I would see lions! I never imagined I would see four together. I loved watching the cubs play together. I have amazing video to share as well.On this day, we saw EIGHT LIONS and a leopard. It was truly awesome.

The wrong bus by Seth Godin

Your first mistake was getting on the A53 bus, the one that goes crosstown instead of to where you're going.

Mistakes like this happen all the time.

The big mistake, though, the one that will cost you, is staying on that bus.

I know it wasn't easy to get on the bus. I know you got a seat. I know it's getting dark outside. But you're on the wrong bus, and staying on the wrong bus won't make it the right bus.

If you really want to get where you set out to go, you're going to have to get off the wrong bus.  https://seths.blog/2018/08/the-wrong-bus/

Shabbat Shalom! I hope you are on the right bus.
