Take some time for yourself
How long does it take you to get burned out from work and the other trials that life might bring your way? My wife and I realized that over two years of not taking any time off had really started to take a toll on who we were. We were becoming what work wanted or going out of our way to satisfy friends, but never really doing anything for ourselves. Realizing that we needed some time off, last year at about this time we were finalizing plans to go on a Caribbean cruise.
It was a first for both of us, and if you haven't had the opportunity to go on a cruise, I highly recommend it. A week or more of unlimited food, sun and fun with someone waiting on you hand and foot. What's not to like!?
We were like kids again...splashing in the water, snorkeling, swimming with stingrays, running up and down the halls of the ship, and simply spending time with one another. It was a wonderful vacation and gave us a chance to find "us" again.
Where are you planning your next vacation?
