April News 2021 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Thank you to the National Arts and Entertainment Journalism awards! I won 2nd place for Book Critic!

Thank you to the Pennsylvania Gazette for their Tweet and Facebook post about my win as NAEJ BOOK CRITIC!

Thank you to Thrive Global for publishing my article, Huge Changes Happen in Tiny Steps

By focusing on “this razor-thin instant called NOW…notice that right now, you’re basically okay. You can trust that gravity will keep holding you in place. You can trust the air you are breathing. You can trust everything in the entire universe to be as it is. You are already coping with it right now, and right now is the only thing you’ll ever have to cope with.”

I loved when she talked about our thoughts and the question: “ARE YOU SURE IT IS TRUE?” Often our terrible beliefs are actually NOT TRUE!

AND!! Martha Beck shared my article on HER Facebook page! WOW!

As seen on THRIVE GLOBAL: Prepare Your Pandemic Pivot with Ken Lindner’s 8C’s: Choreograph your Career by Consistently implementing Conscious, Constructive, success-evoking Choices, made with Cognitive Clarity.

As Lindner states: “The difference between individuals who consistently fulfill their dreams and those who don’t is that the former make constructive and self-enhancing choices on a consistent basis.

This reminds me of a quote by Leonardo da Vinci: ”It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”

Last year, We Said Go Travel, my website, was read in 201 countries! Thanks for all of your support!

Have you seen my ART? I am on Instagram as @lisaniver but I also have an instagram for my ceramics:

I used to travel with a hula-hoop! It always brought smiles.

When I was in Vanuatu, we were invited to Lowinio Kustom Village in Tanna. The chief of the village had given me permission to bring my hula-hoop. We danced and laughed together! Learn more about my trip in Vanuatu: click here and see us Hula-hooping in this video:

WHERE CAN YOU FIND MY TRAVEL VIDEOS?
