Wahoo! Tomorrow I leave for a week at an all-inclusive beachfront resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. Not a vacation from work, because I haven’t been working that much recently, but a vacation from my life. A vacation from myself, to some extent. A much-needed vacation from myself, at that; the last couple days in particular have been fairly bleak inside my head, and hope feels hard to come by.
But I get to leave both the internal and wintery external darkness behind for 7 lovely days. I will bask in the sunshine and get vitamin D gushing through my body. I’ll do lots of light reading and think about nothing. I’ll bring my cell phone so I can check my email occasionally, but other than that I’m going to be completely off-line and tech-free. I think it’ll be a great way to recharge my batteries, clear my mental memory cache, and hopefully get myself in a better frame of mind to make decisions about how I want to approach various things this year.
I’ll miss you all, but I’ll talk to you in a week 🏖
