My family and I are going on vacation next week. We will be gone for seven days. The beach is our destination. If you ask any of the other fifteen people leaving on Saturday who of them is excited, no doubt each of them will respond positively with their swimsuits on a gleam in the eye. If you ask me, you will find a pleading look begging you to take me away from the pain. Why, yes, that is dramatic. Thank you for noticing.
I don’t really enjoy most vacations. I like quiet, alone, and slow. That is the opposite of these vacations. Plus, there always seems to be this unsaid expectation for everyone to be social and to have a great time; all those things that aren’t me. So, my question is, what do you do to enjoy your vacations, even when you aren’t sure you want to enjoy your vacation?
My answer to that question would probably be to try. Try to be involved. Try to have fun. After you try, make sure you take some time for yourself. That should be a good start at least. Any pointers?
