Uncharacteristically, I decided to participate in the thirtieth birthday shenanigans of one of my work friends this weekend. We took a weekend away in Napa full of brunching, winery visits and farm-to-table fare. To put it short, it was perfect. As I was driving home this afternoon, I decided that I need to make a much bigger effort to break up my daily grind with fun trips. It’s so easy for me to get caught up in the motions of life and be a bit of a homebody, but I realize that disrupting my weekly routine is just plain good for my brain. I felt so inspired on the road today, my heart swelled with gratitude for the blessings in my life and my brain swirled with the possibilities for growth at work and at home.
I came home and blocked a bunch of days on my calendar this year for camping trips, time to visit family in Arizona and another trip to Cabo this Fall. It just seems like life is flying by the older I get and I want to make sure that there are plenty of days of pure fun mixed in with the day-to-day responsibilities of life. My best, most excited self seems to emerge when I hit the road, so I’m committed to get to know that side of myself even better this year with lots of fun adventures.
What trips are you taking this year?
