Don’t forget the getaway

vacation

After a very cool overcast day yesterday with temperatures around 50°, today is going to be nice and with warm temperatures back up to 87°.

Every so often it’s nice to have a different day. A little cooler when it’s normally warm out and a little warmer if it usually is chilly out. It just gives us a change of pace.

As complex individuals, it’s beneficial for us to have a change every once in a while. We go on a vacation to rest and regenerate. Maybe we go to the beach or the mountains. Often, we go to places that have different geographic features than the area we usually live in. And almost always we feel happy to come back home again.

Does that make us wishy-washy? No. That makes us complex human beings. Quite often getting away from the place we love allows us to enjoy something different. Because of the break in our routine, we get to rest and enjoy other activities. And, after a short time, we come back to where we call home. Rested because of the break in routine. And, with new insights and appreciations as to why we live where we do, and the benefits we find in our home.

As our summer gets underway, we need to think of our getaway. Whether we look at the beach, the mountains, the big cities, or the streams a few days somewhere else can help to make our lives enriched and happier for the experience.

We’ll talk to you again tomorrow. Until then have a great day.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
