I always find myself asking the very same question every single time I come back from vacation.
I realize that so many things in my life don’t serve my best purpose. Like the way the perfect vacation bed feels as opposed to the one you sleep in at home.
As in how you should probably take better care of yourself after having had the time to rest without losing anything like your full weekend to do so.
I always come back after two weeks and think, I know I am doing this all wrong somehow, because I feel like so much more myself when I have had the time to think about it as opposed the herd like routines we do everyday.
Even on vacation, I’ve realized just how much we have changed in the last 3 years of what we expect a vacation to mean. While the sense of adventure would surpass the physical demands of a long car ride, now I think we have decided that maybe we can stop trying to see everything all at once and enjoy more time in one spot and less time car weary from jumping from place to place.
We have also realized that how much money you spend does not dictate the amount of joy you will feel or whether or not people actually have manners (you would think it would but trust me, it doesn’t).
Sometimes the cheapest things brings you the most joy and other people such as yourself who enjoys these things are the nicest in the world.
And that although you think you will enjoy the $29 plate of liquid potato they serve you a lot more than anything you have ever eaten, in actuality, the much cheaper fried chicken dinner you sat and ate with hubby in your room on one of the last days was a ton cheaper and tasted a lot better than that fancy crap everyone tries to sell you.
I found that it comes down to a few things. Knowing what you like which is different for everyone and knowing the difference between crap and quality and not being so easily impressed by fancy names and fancy prices.
I also know now more than ever I want my time to be my own. Not because I hate working, but just because I give so much of it to working that I forget what I like and care for. It somehow gets lost in the everyday routine of things.
So my new days resolution will be to work every single day to be comfortable as much at home as anywhere else by making the space peaceful and start filling other baskets with as much passive income through as many different means so that I can concentrate on living and less on exchanging my precious time and personality in some cases for money.
How are you changing your life in the brightest way? Do you set goald for yourself every single day?
Life is good. Isn’t it?
