when you are on vacation, you are supposed to shut off all that stresses you in the first place. that is why it is called vacation.
with that being said it means literally shut off everything. be in the moment, do what doesn’t feel natural and relax. i think it is easier when you are actually away somewhere because the atmosphere is different and all you do is other things. i woke up this morning, after a few cups of coffee, thinking ok – i have to get my to do list out for my trip of course. people do not realize how much there is to do when you go abroad, it is important to have all the necessary documents, clothes, things that are important LAPTOP (ha ha) but also to be prepared for anything. we often take for granted of all the luxuries we have in our daily lives, in our homes and we must now packed them in a suitcase.
i am the worse at not being able to shut down those boxes that are a daily routine. i need to learn how to really take a vacation from my head. self love is very important and i want to come back feeling refreshed.
i always learn new things as well when i travel and i am hoping, since it has been 3 years since i have been to Texas, i will learn or perhaps take on new adventures.
