Vacations used to stress me out, majorly. The planning, the logistics, and oh, the money. Both getting the most bang for our buck, and the paying for it.
Vacations, even cheap ones, are stressful on most people’s finances. Or, if they aren’t, they are vacations that are paid in full because they were saved up for. Which takes a LOT of discipline, you know.
Here soaking in the Florida sunshine with family, my heart. Making memories. Moments. Laughing and living and loving life.
These are the moments we work hard for. These are the moments we grind for.
I am grateful today that by me sharing my story, and helping others feel good about themselves, I have made vacations less stressful financially. Still stressful, but less so. And some day, they won’t be, because they WILL be paid in full with the income I work my butt off to earn by being real, raw, honest and transparent in my journey.
That I have the courage to do that, and reap such fabulous rewards as the result, is awesome. And YOU also have the courage to do it, you just might not know it yet. Are you willing to work for it? Let’s chat!
Because it must be said:
This time of year is challenging, unless you are some sort of superhuman being. Traffic, shopping, tons of food and treats tempting you, time with relatives who may or may not leave you exhausted, in addition to everything else in life, and trying to balance it all without feeling like burying your head in the sand or pulling your hair out.
I’m not saying this will be EASY…. but…. I do think it will be worthwhile.
Take 10 minutes today to do nothing. Just sit (or lay, or even stand), and just exist. Clear your head of your worries, and talk to yourself. Tell yourself that you can handle the next 6 weeks. You will make it through this. Ask for the strength, and then truly believe that YOU are in control of the holidays – don’t let them control you!
Holidays come every year. This is nothing you haven’t handled before. You can do this. Take some time to center yourself, to make a gameplan of what you need to do/not do to make it through the holidays, and stay in control — you’ve got this!
