Yesterday was Family Day in Alberta, and as mentioned on Friday, we extended it to be a bit of a family week. Because my husband travels A LOT for work, we really wanted to spend some quality time together in a hot destination soaking up the sun (we are from Canada after all), sipping a few cocktails, and doing whatever our little hearts desired.
I think what’s so fantastic about vacations is being able to escape from the everyday *to-do list that often becomes an energy-drainer, especially this time of year. Do you feel it? I love that I’m able to let go of responsibility for a short time and “just go with it” (something my type A personality has difficulty doing in real life!). I feel so grateful for the opportunity.
It’s been a blast so far, and I can’t wait to bring this feeling of being refreshed back with me. Just like I’ve been getting rid of the clutter and junk in our house the past couple months, I needed to do the same with myself. Sometimes I forget about this and let “stuff” accumulate and weigh me down. Almost a week’s worth of “cleaning” and now I feel like I have the inspiration to move forward with so many projects I was feeling stuck on. Amen!
