The Art of Unwinding

There are times in our lives that we need to stop take heart, take stock take a break. This is one of those times. I will be turning 50 on Sunday and we decided sometime to go to Maui for two weeks for my birthday. As a new business it seems like a lot of time to take off, but when we booked it I knew that taking a break, rejuvenating my mind body and soul would enhance my life and my business.

We are leaving the technology behind, the cell phones, computers will be left behind. We will be watching sunrises and sunsets, toasting to this wonderful life, and celebrating a special day and time that deserves to be recogized.

In 50 years the most important thing I've learned is that I cannot do it alone, I love people and I need them and I am thankful for the journey that started a different life journey for me when I was17 in Hawaii that changed the course of my life.

I look ahead with smiles and I look behind with smiles. it's made me who I am. My thanks to everyone that has crossed my path and made a difference!

Good for you, and enjoy it! I love the vacations where I TRULY get out of town, and off work, and they typically involve either a cruise or international travel!

We all need to take a break from time to time in this industry. Our sanity sometimes depends on us taking these breaks and planning and scheduling them ahead of time is the best way because it makes you prepare and get things in order before you leave town.
