3 Life Lessons I Learnt While Vacationing
I recently went on my honeymoon…Thanks for all the kind thoughts and words. While I was on this honeymoon, I had this constant thought going through my head. Never before have I had this but once I took the time to hash it out, I realized why.
See since I’ve become self-employed my constant thoughts are on how to build my business. As most business owners understand, it’s really hard to turn that off. Especially if it’s new and needs to grow. But I always try to want to live my life in the moment. It has always served me well and I highly recommend it. Of course it’s tough to do on the daily but think about it for a moment. You can’t change yesterday and only your moment today can you shape the outcome of tomorrow. So sitting on the couch and wishing or dreaming for things to happen isn’t going to work. You only get out what you put in.
It was this very thought that made me realize that while on my honeymoon, I could live in the moment and at the same time shape my future. So what is it that I’m actually rambling about? That’s the core of this blog. I was away from my work and everyday life for 3 weeks. I was forced at times to just be me and live in the moment. I was forced to just let go and BE. We were at times on Islands with no internet or phone service. There was no TV or distractions, I literally was forced to just be. I was forced to sit and watch life in the now.
It was during these moments that I learnt some amazing lessons. Ones that I will and must apply to my business. See where we went was the Philippines. An amazing tropical paradise that has some of the friendliest people I have ever met. But a lot of these people really have nothing more than their day-to-day. Some live a very simple life, but it’s this simple life that is fascinating to me.
So what is it that made me so excited to come back and apply to my business? That’s the true purpose of this post. Lets get into it now.
