A Break From Reality
No matter how short or long your vacation is, always go in and slide back out with a positive mindset; doing one but not the other does not open or close the loop properly. Even if something does not go your way during a vacation, still do your best to come out of it with a positive mindset.
Vacations do not always go as planned: there may be unexpected arguments, painful emotions and even depressed feelings. But a vacation is your time to take a break from reality and just enjoy the moment. Unfortunately, some vacations put you in a position of having to feel pain and pleasure at the same time.
Pain and pleasure do not go together very well, but you cannot allow pain to ruin your entire vacation. If that does happen, can you imagine your mindset upon returning back to work? You’d be devastated. Unfortunately, there are occasions when a family death occurs during a vacation.
Such an unfortunate scenario is everyone’s worst nightmare. It destroys whatever chance you had to enjoy your vacation. But life works in mysterious ways, and clearly, a death was meant to happen during your vacation. But a death and an argument are nowhere near comparable.
So unless you have something serious like a death occurring on your vacation, there should be no excuse for not making the most out of your vacation. Utilize this time to get away from your present reality and to relax with nothing important on your mind. Catch up with some friends and family and just be.
Sometimes all you can do is just be. And a vacation is the perfect setting for this.
