I need a vacation, and I’ve decided that I’m going to lay on this beach and enjoy the blue water in June. I own a condo in this building, top floor, far right facing the ocean, and I can’t wait to utilize it this year. I don’t always use it, there’s either something going on or I want to head elsewhere. It’s been on my mind recently, so I’m taking that as a sign that I need to pack my bags and make use of it.
My condo is approximately 1 hour from Orlando and 1 hour from Fort Lauderdale. A 2 – 3 day cruise to the Bahamas while I’m there is sealing the deal for me. My doctor told me that I need to relax. High blood pressure runs in my family and I’m borderline. He said I just need to spend time around the pool or on the beach and just let my stress go. I have a tendency to need a vacation when I come back from a vacation. I love to take pictures, so I spend time running around site seeing and snapping pictures as well as finding activies for everyone to enjoy. I’ve decided to take the doctor up on his advice this year. I’m going on vacation with a suitcase full of books, sunscreen and a wireless card for my laptop instead of my camera. .
I’m also going without kids and my man, woo hoo. Do I feel guilty? A little, but that too shall subside. I have to admit it’s looking pretty good to me. I’m going to sleep late, eat when I want and shop as long as I want. I’m making reservations for a Spa Day too. A full body massage, facial, manicure and pedicure are on my list.
I vacationed by myself several years ago, and I loved it. I felt so rested and peaceful when I returned.I missed my family, but no screaming kids, no worrying about dinner, doing laundry or piles of dishes soon replaced the ache for my family. I’m learning that I should be able to take time for me and not feel guilty. There are 365 days in a year, I should be able to take 7 of those days for myself.
I’ve found over the course of the years that I pour everything that I am and everything that I have into everyone else and everything else, and at times I came up exhausted. There was a time in my life when I would not have allowed the thought of me vacationing alone to enter my mine. As I’ve gotten older I’ve become much more independent, and as a result fears have disappeared and my priorities have changed. I’m learning to take care of me.
If you find me MIA for a week in June, you know where I am.
