They all had a great time at Summer Camp.
All across the country, parents sent their kids for two weeks in the woods, archery, bug juice, bonfires, lake swimming and bonfire making. Why do we do it? Because it is good for our kids to step out of their comfort zone and “grow”. We’re not asking them to become new people and we’re not kicking them out of the house with nowhere to come home. We know that pushing our kids a little bit will help them achieve the life we hope for them.
If you are single, I want you to re-read the last paragraph and think about how the lessons of camp translate to lessons for love.
At Kelleher International we push our clients to expand out of their comfort zone. Sometimes finding “the one” requires you to consider a new type of person to connect with. Sometimes it means you need to change your “rules” of dating. Sometimes being successful might come from you asking for help from an expert for the first time in a long time. But just like me sending my youngest off to camp for the first time, we’re not asking you to change who you are, or what you want, or what you are willing to do – we’re just asking you to stretch a little. You can always come back “home”, but we suspect the growth will help you achieve all that we hope for you.
So, as the summer wears on and the days start to shorten, I say it’s time to pick up the phone, call you matchmaker/camp counselor and sign yourself up for Camp Find-The-One.
And archery lessons are at 2pm at the hay bales behind the Tribal Circle.
