Welp, vacation is officially over. It’s back to work tomorrow morning. Back to inside all day, back to meetings, back to waking up early, back to long days. Back to “reality.” I hope that one day my day-to-day “reality” is something that I’m excited about and feel good about myself doing, but for now, I’m sure you can feel my level of excitement through my words– not thrilled.
I did, however, do a good job concentrating on the days and moments I had while I was having them. Sometimes on vacations in the past, I’ve spent too much time thinking about how much time I have left or how much work I’ll have when I’m back but if thoughts like that entered my mind, I tried to bring my thoughts to what was going on right now instead of focusing on days ahead. It makes a difference.
So now, as I have begun to stress out about the week ahead and am beginning to feel like I’m drowning in negative thoughts, it’s time for me to remember what an amazing 10 days I’ve had.
Days full of kayaking with my love.
Lobster, fried clams, clam chowder and more lobster.
Days starting with Mary Lou’s Coffee every morning.
Fishing off the dock.
Playtime with my favorite puppy
Playtime with my beautiful, crazy, hilarious, sass monster of a niece.
Swimming in the amazing ocean.
Relaxing and taking in the gorgeous scenery around us.
And overall, just enjoying moments with my wonderful family.
It ended today with a day celebrating our little Princess Elle, who turns 4 this Wednesday.
What a lucky lady I am. So many memories made this past week with the people that matter most to me. Blessed would be an understatement.
