And just like that, my staycation is over and I’m back at work. And life seems to be back to where it was before the staycation as well. As for me? I’m pushing myself to remember the girl that I had forgotten about until that time alone. I’m being diligent about not letting that girl go so far away again. And I don’t want to forget that amazing time of writing like I used to, of feeling sure of myself, of truly letting the “real me” shine through.
Life is a funny, wonderful, crazy thing. We live it in our day to day routines, not noticing much until we’re given the time to notice, to remember, to be who we are. And I won’t give that up.
We spend so much time doing the same things every day that we forget to take the time and “make” the time to notice the people in our lives, the beauty that surrounds us, and more importantly, we forget about ourselves. We forget why we’re here. We forget who we are. We forget to love ourselves.
Yes, my staycation is over. Yes, I’m back at work. Yes, my old life seems to be creeping into the life that I found during that short period of time.
But I’m not going to forget how I felt, what I learned, and what I want to do from here on in.
My staycation changed me yet it brought out the best in me.
I found myself.
And I’m not going to let that girl go again.
Pay attention, my loves, to the world and the life that surrounds you.
More importantly, pay attention to “you,” because you are amazing and “you” have the ability to change the world.
We got this!
Wishing you love and light,
