Vacations are not only fun and relaxing but good for the soul. Vacations can heal even the most bruised and banged up feelings.
This time away with my family was truly what I needed and the timing was perfect. This was exactly what I needed to reset and center myself.
The first hour or so on the 6 hour drive home the weather was awful. The rain came down so hard I thought it could break the windshield. Then it stopped raining and I could see beautiful clear skies down the highway.
I thought it was a perfect example of my life recently. I think I’m finally out of the storm and the skies are clear from now on.
Unfortunately once the sun went down I had too many hours inside my head with my thoughts. Things that I happily didn’t think about at all on my trip. Things that I was hoping to forget about and learn to stop thinking about while I was away. Things that I hope to not let into my head once I get back to work, when I usually think about everything.
Today will be a test for sure, but hopefully I’ll pass with flying colors. Eventually I won’t even bother asking, “Why me?”
