Great Escape Radio Episode 38: Find something to build
“Travel writing and photography help memorialize chunks of your life.” –Lori Allen

Host, Jody Maberry is joined by Director, Lori Allen, to talk about life…
Is life too short? Or is it something that’s long and requires a long term plan?
Sometimes it’s ok to live as if life is short: packing in everything you want to do and say before it’s too late.
But we’re living longer and longer, so having a long term plan for your life is a good idea.
Lori believes people are meant to build things…
“As human beings, we’re meant to build things, to have a purpose in our lives. If we lose sight of the long term plan, we lose sight of the purpose in our lives.”
Jody shares the story of a friend who—when her last child left home—stated she felt like she had been fired from her job.
It happens to people when they become an empty nester, retire or lose a spouse.
“When you’ve had one purpose for 20 or 30 years or more, a change like this can turn your life upside down,” Lori says.
When life changes… change directions: Find something to build.
Building something like a travel writing or photography career can give your life a long term purpose and help you memorialize time.
