For the past four years I have focused my life on work, getting myself ahead and of course just living the daily grind. All of my “so called” vacations or trips outside of Boston have involved either client visits or tradeshows. Well, last Thursday I finally got the opportunity to go visit my sister in LA. She has lived here for a while now and it just seems as if time has flown by and I havent made a trip out here. I didn’t realize until now how important it was for me to take time off and see my family. The past couple days have been some of the most relaxing and peaceful days I have had in a long time. I got to spend time with two of the most important and influential people in my life, my mom and my sister. Weather we were laying around talking, spending time at the beach or out to dinner, I enjoyed and appreciated every minute with them. Sometimes you truly forget how important family is, and this weekend I left all my stress back in Boston and just enjoy life and being with my family.
I leave LA tonight… so tomorrow its back to the grind! But next time, I promise it wont be another four years till I have a vacation.
