I hope you’ve had a great post Thanksgiving week! We went home to Philadelphia, celebrated Andrew’s grandparent’s 80th birthday party, and then at the end of the weekend, I got sick.
Luckily I feel much better now but being so uncomfortable reminded me that I didn’t get to tell you about the last minute trip we took to Europe a few weeks ago with no agenda and no reservations. Being the type-A planner that I am when it comes to vacations, at first this felt just as uncomfortable as being sick. But thankfully taking time out just for us overruled my need to plan plan plan.
This was our first big solo trip since our honeymoon three years ago so I was super jazzed to have Andrew all to myself. And yet, we almost talked ourselves out of going because we thought that we were too busy and that it would be too expensive.
I’m SO happy that we went for it anyway! After my busy year growing myself and my business at intense retreats and conferences, what we most needed was time for just us. And thanks to priceline and using reward points, we spent less on this trip than what two months of eating out and having fun at home would cost.
We often make excuses and tell ourselves stories about how difficult or expensive something is so that we keep ourselves from being uncomfortable. But the thing is: we’re here to create as much magic as possible and usually that means going out of our comfort zone.
