Today, Tuesday June 19th is my last day of vacation.
I mean, like a real bona fide freakin’ vacation.
I flew somewhere and rented a car and everything.
Honestly, this is my first real vacation in 10 years.
Sounds unreal I know, but it is the truth.
Up until now I have had multiple (times 100) staycations (which still totally rock in my world), BUT a real vacation….yummy and for real, thank you God.
I met my sis and family in Lake Tahoe, CA last Thursday and I returned home on Father’s Day.
I honestly have not felt this sense of freedom and gratitude and awe… in…I don’t know…10 years.
I cannot even explain how peaceful and refreshed and grateful I feel.
Vacations really are good for the soul.
I have the time to take another vacation later this year, a solo trip, me and God, exploring places that I have dreamed about seeing, like I have done in the past. Alone.
When I return to work on Wednesday, I may be slammed (most likely) with all that is wrong or overdue or needs attending…but in this moment in time, and tomorrow, I am so happy and fulfilled, I could cry.
Tears of happiness.
I am more than thankful for the break and I am returning refreshed and stress-free.
Until I fire up my computer at work. hahaha
But then again, that is what is to come on Wednesday.
Today, Tuesday, I will remain present and grateful.
Side note, I received a message just now from WordPress.
Today is my “anniversary.”
I have been blogging for 7 years.
Pretty cool in my world.
I “clean house” every few years blogging wise (and in real life) because I am always striving to continue creating a better story for myself.
Another side note, using terms like always and never are signs of slight deception. hahaha
But for real, whether it is always or never – I do strive to create an evolving, better and new story for myself and my life.
I hope you do as well.
BTW. The above pic is now my work and home computer background pic.
