Living My Life Like I’m on Vacation


I’m not sure if it was the pandemic or just being home more, but I had a huge paradigm shift over the last six months that changed the way I exist in my day to day life. I made a conscious decision to “live my life like I’m on vacation.” During the pandemic we were fortunate to be able to update the outdoor spaces at our home. We canceled expensive trips and used the money to build out our backyard and front porch so we could entertain outside and not feel completely isolated indoors. But what happened was we created an environment that was like a hotel. And instead of just sitting inside and eating or talking we ventured outside with heated blankets, fire pits and warm drinks. I would say to myself, if I were in a hotel would I sit in my room and eat or would I go down to the lobby or sit at the outdoor patio? And that’s what I do at my own home. I live my life like I’m on vacation. Even when it’s 30 degrees outside I sit on my front porch and watch the cars drive by. In the summer I take naps on the front porch - I have my morning Keto tea on the front porch so I can take in life, people, nature and think. Yes…think. For the first time in my life I’m creating space to be still…to be grateful. Try it.
