It’s almost time to think vacation and that’s good….can you afford the time and money to be away? Do you give yourself permission to sail away with a clear conscience? If the answer is no, let’s talk about the quality of your life. You do have a life that you call your own, right?
I wonder how many people I’ve burdened with how very, very busy I am. Far too busy and important to simply enjoy being away and spend time in that present. Is this the role model I want to set for others? Inspiring them to be overachievers and workaholics? Work isn’t work unless there is something you’d rather do, eh?
A recent cruise and time at the beach signaled it was time for reflection. I absolutely am blessed to do what I do. My clients are incredible. I’ve created a new company with a partner and amazing faculty members that is exhilarating. Helping nonprofits do more with less is an honor. Somehow having the opportunity to make a living sharing ideas, options and solutions with others seems plenty darn worthwhile. At the same time, I look at the vastness and power of the ocean and realize how, in the big scheme of things, it’s a great environment to clear the mind and refresh the head, heart and soul.
I highly recommend cruisin’ and snoozin’. Even if it’s just within your imagination. Better still if it is with people you love to love. This is your LIFE – live it in abundance and with balance.
