It’s amazing how quickly we get bogged down with a little of this and a lotta that and before we know it we’re being pulled in every direction until your head is spinning. That’s me! Oh yeah! I think I’m super woman. And by the time I’m finally climbing into bed, I pass out so fast I don’t even remember my head hitting the pillow. This goes on week after week until I finally have to scream, ENOUGH!
And then it’s time for a vacation.
I just got back from spending six days in Cabo San Lucas with my cousins and lawd knows I needed it. But in order to really enjoy my vacation I made one rule. No phones, no social media. I thought it was going to be difficult not to log onto facebook every day and post, or to be talking on the phone with a friend or family. But it was EASY. Ya hear me? I was happy to put my cell phone on airplane mode and leave it there until I landed back at home. I was tickled not to have my phone ringing or emails or text messages to answer. You wanna know why? I had allowed myself to be so consumed by all those things that there was no time left for me. In other words, it was time to get my life back!
I needed those six days to fight my addiction to constant contact. Only it turned out to be one dependency I could live without. Now that I am back at home, I’m limiting logging onto my computer and still taking time out for me. I don’t know how long this is going to last but I’m going to enjoy it while I can and when I start feeling overwhelmed all over again then I guess it will be time for another vacation. But for now… I got my life back!
