Vacation or Life Change? 2

Hey! Yeah – you!

Do you need a vacation?

Can you see yourself sitting on the beach, pina-coladas in hand, counting the waves crashing one-by-one? There are no emails coming through, you’re not worried about the SEO or view counts and there are no distractions around you? It’s just you and that beautiful sunshine providing lots of vitamin D your way. Your body is glistening in the sunshine and there’s not a damn thing to worry about. Nothing. You turn on your iPod and blare Jimmy Buffet, because you know it’s 5 o’clock somewhere.

Or maybe your vacation looks different to you.

Maybe it’s a few days in a cabin in the mountains. Still, you could be sippin’ on gin and tonic with legs crossed over looking the forest. Not a sound in sight. It’s still peace and peace is great.

When I worked in the corporate world, there were a lot of days I would need a vacation. There was always something to stress about – contracts, creating presentations making sure marketing packages were at their correct destinations on time…sigh..it was stressful! So I made it a plan to get a mani and pedi once a week during lunch break. Somehow it just eased everything. 🙂

But when my world changed and I stayed home with my children, I started to need a mini-retreat more often.  Please will someone give me a break?! I need a few hours by myself! I would cry.

People would ask, “but aren’t you getting enough time by yourself?

“NOO!!!!” I would shout!

I would get an hour here or there throughout the week but it was never enough. It sucked the life out of me. It wasn’t working for me and it sure wasn’t working for the kids. I knew from the beginning that I wasn’t a housewife. Cleaning and chores aren’t my thing. Now a mom yes, I love being a mom. But there is a balance and it wasn’t happening in my world. I made myself miserable. My husband was miserable working long crazy 60+ hours weekly and with him, I had no sleep either.

I would occasionally have a babysitter (and I do mean occasionally) to watch the kids for a few hours but it was rough in my world. People would ask, “Isn’t she getting time to herself?” I felt overwhelmed to say the least. The answer was always no.

I didn’t need a vacation, I needed a lifestyle change.

I had to really think about what I wanted and not what everyone else wanted for me. I had to do some soul-searching hard work to find my path and truth. This is how I ended up to you.

I’ve always known I love to help people. I always knew I wanted flexible hours to be there when my children get home and to see them during their special days at school. I always knew I was going to own my own business and make something of myself. These are things my heart truly desires. I wasn’t looking for a temporary vacation but to choose another path. One that filled all my requirements to make me happy.

So I ask you: Do you need a vacation or a BIG change in your life?

If you need a vacation, go! Buy the tickets, jump on that airplane and ENJOY IT!

If you need a lifestyle change, let’s talk about it! It’s your life and you decide what you want in it! Live your life, open the possibilities and let’s dive in!
