I’m sure most of you have already seen I will be on vacation this week. The women in my family are heading to the Caribbean and so my beach bag is packed and ready (it’s literally below me on the airplane while I write this blog, yeah, I’m ready!) Sun, sand, and margaritas are already on my mind. I can not WAIT to leave all my cares and worries in Texas for the next few days. There is nothing else I need more right now than some reflection and outside perspective.
One thing I know about myself is I am in my head… A little more than I need to be. Analyzing, thinking, evaluating. Over the years I have gotten better about “letting it go,” but I still struggle with it… I honestly think this attributes to some of my success though. What I have learned is that there are certain times and places that are better for reflection or to “get in my head.”
Every time I get out of town whether it be 2 days or a week I get inspired. I come back, refreshed and ready to kick some ass. This could be anything from – I am going to meal plan more efficiently, find a calendar system that fits my workflow better or decide to initiate more fellowship with my friends.
Culture can change your perspective on everything! People live there lives so differently all over the world so seeing people in their day-to-day can change yours at home. I am here on this earth to grow and be the best I can be. So, I am continually trying to find new paths to explore.
You may not have the time to get out of your world this very second but maybe try to step out of your zone. Gain some new perspective. Maybe there is a relationship that has been a struggle for you and you need to look at it from a different side. Maybe your hair has been looking like shit and you need to seriously explore some options! Maybe you don’t even see the new perspective you need for your life. Just be ready for it, and open to it.
So with my open perspective comes a full beach bag with my favorite beach essentials. I am DYING over this Free People Cover-up, it’s so lightweight and comfortable!
Happy Sunday Gorgeous! Make sure to follow my trip on snapchat… It will keep you entertained 😉
