How to Have a Great Vacation

Hey gorgeous,

FullSizeRenderLast week I went on vacation to Kauai. It was the best vacation ever. That’s a breakthrough for me.

Truth: I used to SUCK at vacation.

Vacation used to be a source of shame, stress (say what?!) and even embarrassment.

These thoughts used to bombard my consciousness:

  • “Is it okay for me to take time off?”
  • “Should I work while I’m away so I don’t feel guilty?”
  • “Will I be judged for spending money on my happiness and pleasure?”
  • “Do I deserve this?”
  • “How can I make this vacation perfect??”

I’m happy to say those questions are complete.

Here’s where I’m at after a beautiful time away from wi-fi, texting, social media, and email:

  • My body deserved and cherished this time off and I’m more awake and on purpose in my business because of this vacation.
  • My relationship deserved this kind of romance and our love has grown leaps and bounds because of the time and attention we put into this 8-day date.
  • I let go of expectations and let go of my need for control. Letting go allowed my man to lead me and whisk me away to a gorgeous island so I could relax in my feminine essence without a single masculine business structure to distract me. The need for perfection dissolved because I was present, living in NOW o’clock.
  • We turned off our wi-fi and shut down our laptops. Feeling guilty was not an option. I set up boundaries and honored my needs through a simple: “I’m away from email” message-reply system.

I’ve returned now with more energy than ever to support my precious clients.

My ideas got to simmer and grow inside my relaxed state of being.

Today I feel READY, inspired, and energized.

Best vacation ever.

To anyone out there struggling with the concept of vacation and or the possibility of self-care, may this message give you permission to take a guilt free adventure into your relaxed heart and joy…

Because you deserve it.
