“We all think alike. No one thinks very much.” – Walter Lippman
Today is my birthday and in keeping with my nature of striving for difference – my husband gave me a chance to experience something I’ve never experienced before.
Yes, that’s right. I’ve been given a chance to drive a super car in style. Now why would a wedding planner want to drive a super car? Let’s not think about the dominant nature of the sport for now. It’s about the experience of doing something which you want to do which the average person doesn’t do or think about on a day to day basis. When you allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone, you will experience things you’ve never felt before. It allows you to dream of the endless possibilities.
I like driving and certainly love cars. I’ve been in a super car but always as a passenger, never as the driver. So this is a big deal for me! I am very excited about this experience but I admit I’m a little nervous. For those of you who have met me before – will know that I am tiny. So imagine tiny me driving a super car. I hope it doesn’t drive me!
In a way this is how I am as a planner – it’s all about the experience. If you can dream it, you can definitely do it. I am a thrill seeker and strive for difference. With events – I like personalizing things to make it all about you. Everyone is unique in their own way. So why do most people want the same things in an event? Why not make it about you? You don’t have to run away from traditions but you can make the tradition about you. Make it mean something to you. I believe that you must do everything with reason, even if that reason is for fun. Colour themes are a good start but why stop there? Put an object, an animal, or even a person into the mix and you will get a whole new palate of ideas which will define you.
I can take up this ultimate drive experience anytime within the next 6 months and when I decide to do it – I will share my experience with you here. So keep a look out for that post. In the meantime – keep dreaming!
