Sometimes, you’ve got to just GO.
Leaving the day to day, the stress, the mess. Suppressing the need to be everywhere-ever-present-all-of the-time-for-everyone. This is why traveling is so exhilarating. It’s like getting a new refreshing look at the world and escaping from your reality into someone else’s.
I feel like everyone is always work, work, work, so afraid to take time off. Have I done enough? What else can I accomplish? How can I stay on top of it all? Maybe we feel like we’d would be letting everyone down, I don’t know. I do know that I get wrapped up in that feeling, the need to be ever present with family and work. I am tired of, what it seems like, being everything to everyone.
So I went. And I am so glad that I did. My sister and I chose a gorgeous, tropical destination in the Caribbean. There is something so serene, so calm about the gorgeous turquoise blue waters in Puerto Rico. It is such a beautiful island, I was happy to be able to bask in the sun, splash in the ocean, hike through the virgin rain forest, connect with the friendly locals, learn about their history, indulge in Puerto Rican cuisine, and most of all, RELAX. It feels so lovely to have no agenda, to not have to think, to not be in charge!
I will share more about my experience in Puerto Rico, I feel liberated.
Let go of the day to day, it’s time to get away…
