My cherished friend, Dr. Omer Reed, taught me the following lesson years ago:
The anticipation of positive events in our lives is just as rewarding as the realization.
I know this is a true principle. With this in mind we each need to take the opportunity to plan our lives ahead and thus be able to take full advantage of the joy of anticipation.
Likewise, the fear and anxiety that proceeds a negative event is often worse than the actual event. So with this in mind, why not, when possible, just do it and be done with it and move on to the anticipation of our joyful events?
This is a new year. This is 2014. You have always wanted to do a Learning Curves ride. You have often said to yourself, “Wow that sounds like fun and I really want to do that SOMEDAY!” If it is really worth doing, it is worth putting on your calendar right now. If you haven’t planned your calendar for 2014 long before now, then just do it now. Planning your year, your five years, your ten years, “now” only enhances your opportunities to experience the joys of anticipation. It also allows you to avoid those paths you would rather not follow.
As you read this month’s letter, Glenda and I are “Down Under” enjoying the South Island of New Zealand with our group of Learning Curves guests. As with all of our rides and other major commitments and opportunities in our lives, this tour has been planned and anticipated for over eighteen months. We invite you to plan now to join us for a ride in 2014. We love these opportunities to make new friends and to continue and renew previous friendships. That is what keeps us going on this path.
New for 2014:
Pacific Coast Highway & British Columbia
Many have requested it. Glenda and I rode it two years ago, just the two of us and loved it. Now, for the first time, Learning Curves will offer our Pacific Coast Highway, Victoria and British Columbia Ride.
Arriving in Provo the afternoon of June 10, 2014, your hotel room will be waiting and you will check out your 2014 Harley of your model choice. Early the next morning we pack our bikes and head across the loneliest highway in America. This is Highway 50 which takes us through Great Basin National Park to our stay at Lake Tahoe, Nevada. We then ride north along the top of the High Sierra Mountains to Lassen Volcanic National Park and then west to the Pacific Coast Highway and Redwoods National Park.
We follow the Pacific Coast Highway north along the Oregon and Washington Coast and take in Olympic National Park before we ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, British Columbia. We have two nights and a free day in Victoria and then ferry to Vancouver to head east to Kamloops and on to Revelstoke. We then head south with stays along the Columbia River and enjoy two more great ferry rides to reach the border crossing and back into the US in the Idaho Panhandle. Our journey back to Provo takes us along the Salmon River and then to Jackson, Wyoming, and on south to Provo arriving on Saturday, June 21st, the first day of summer, for your flight home the next day on Sunday.
We are limited to ten couples so the space will go fast. Fax your registration to Angel now and enjoy the anticipation.
All of you are invited to consider our other 2014 rides:
You can find dates and details of all of our rides at LearningCurves.net.
We welcome the blessing of serving you,
This is our invitation to explore your world!
