Everyone needs a little R and R to get the mind and soul back in balance. I did just that last week and now I feel relaxed and re-energized!
We spent the last week in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico. Stayed at an all-inclusive luxurious resort where Mark and I were able to soak up the sun, play in the ocean and truly relax our minds and bodies. We pampered ourselves with massages, wonderful dinners, and fancy cocktails. We loved that our biggest decision was whether to hang out by the beach or the pool.
We met some wonderful people from all over the world and had some amazing conversations and shared meals with them. It’s so interesting to me to realize that everyone is basically the same. Whether young or old, from the US, Canada, Europe or any other country, we still all have the same trials and tribulations with our careers, our children, our families and our emotional health. It humbles me to talk with others and share thoughts, concerns, etc., and know that you are not alone. Across the world, people everywhere are stressing about their jobs, their income, their families.
So we’re back home. Back to the ‘grind’ as they say. But today I feel happy and relaxed and so very blessed for everything I have in my life. It’s time for me to re-focus and build my career here in Iowa, and to feel okay about it if success doesn’t come as quickly as I’d like. I’ll just think about the sand and the sun and the wonderful friends we made and everything will be just fine.
