love vacations. I just returned from vacation and feel re-energized and ready
to tackle life again. How is it that vacations bring out the best in people and
why don’t we take them more often?
For many people vacations mean the absence of
thoughts about bills, chores, expectations and obligations. Most of us tend to
be our best on vacations and be in the most positive state of mind. How is it
that vacations do that to us? Is it because there is nothing to worry about? Does
worrying actually ever solve anything? So yes, vacations are very good at
making us feel positive, or putting us in a positive state of being.
Vacations naturally seem to bring us closer to our loved ones. Vacations
help us appreciate our relationships and the people we have in our lives. They
can help us express love, kindness and compassion. Kids and parents get closer.
Spouses tend to get closer and we are just plain nicer to even the strangers
In the daily rat race, it is not uncommon for many of us to actually
lose ourselves. We forget what really makes us happy and fulfilled. We often
neglect our needs. The result is usually
a sense of bitterness and negativity about life.
As we enter again into the hustle and bustle of fall, let us remember to
keep positive in our lives. Let us also not forget to get away somewhere on a
regular basis. No matter how close or far you go, it is guaranteed to
transform you in many positive ways.
