For those of you new to D.D.D., you can find out all about it HERE. In short, Double Dog Dare is made up of a community of those who are desiring to make changes in their life. This is a place where we provide support to one another as we try to accomplish things we need or want to do.
The chosen dares can be big or small, things that require hard work or are just plain fun.

For me, the photo above sums up the heart and soul of DDD. This is me and Michelle traveling in Abruzzo, Italy-- we were on an excursion with seven lovely people who took their day off to show us around their beautiful country. We will be sharing loads of photographs just as soon as we can, but for now, all I can tell you is it was the trip of a lifetime.
Why does it mean DDD to me? Well, I am not the best traveler, to put it mildly. What got me on the plane was that I had to go in order to prepare for our gathering there in October-- and oh my word people, take a tiny glimpse into what it was like-- I posted a few snapshots here.
I am a timid country mouse and travel requires an open adventurous spirit. And so, I look at the picture above and it carries worlds for me of all that I got to see and experience last week and how I would have missed it all if I gave in to my silly fears (that don't feel silly at all while they are gnawing on me, rest assured) and stayed home.
So for me? Month Five means a commitment over the next four months (May, June, July, August) to learn conversational Italian. Each month I am setting goals so that when I return in October I can say more than 'ciao'!
As for the inherent silliness in the fears that wrap us so tightly, I must share the video below which I think is rather brilliant and I hope it will help you to continue to remove obstacles to the feelings and experiences you wish to have in your life now.
And, as always-- please do share your ideas, goals, experiences as we all learn so much through hearing how it is going for each of us--
"Just remember to have fun and keep your chin up!" says Lily. (Note: Lily is wearing her DDD bandana earned by her mama Judy!)
Please share your dare for this month, whether it is a recommittment to an ongoing one or a brand spankin' new one. Let us know so we can cheer eachother on!
