I am arranging a trip in January. Either staycation, here or head to Denver, San Diego or Santa Fe. I am considering the staycation option as it will be a little warmer here than in Denver or Santa Fe. I can drive up to Sedona or explore some other place in Arizona. Mostly, I want a few days off from work to be free. Two days off in a row where I can venture elsewhere.
I know that Las Vegas trip will happen in February. I thought about working Thursday morning and then heading out to meet Shari. I believed it would provide a way to not feel bad for asking off more time from work. Then, I realized how foolish that would be. I don't want to appease other people. I want to enjoy my life and a large part of that happiness occurs when I am traveling. I remember when I chose to try this new job. Many friends remarked that the lack of travel would kill me. They are right!
I am attempting to rectify that. To balance options and make it work for me. I am enjoying the new job--cultivating relationships, meeting more people in the industry and my arms are finally looking sculpted. I can do an adequate push up (another bonus of retail work). I jest.
The main concern I have is the lack of travel. I must find a way to make it work and continue to work in this industry. I know there is much more to learn and I am committed to doing it.
In the meantime, I will read, do yoga, travel (as much as I can) and blog. A friend of mine suggested that I continue this the other night when I was venting my crazy of the current state. I was expressing to him my unhappiness with not being able to travel and he told me that I should write. I agree. And, I will write about traveling and in that regard, I must do it. I cannot worry about money or work. I feel these things will always be in my life.
Til then, I will contemplate peace, celebration and my next trip. Staycation or trip elsewhere. I am going to do it next month! I know it is going to happen.
