We pack all of the things we need for a trip: clothes, shoes, accessories, tickets, gadgets and their chargers. We spend lots of money or find the greatest bargains on flights, hotels, and cruises. Yet many of the things we need to take, we do not.
I know that I am guilty of it. Many times I take a trip to relax and do everything but relax. And do I come back rejuvenated? No, I usually need a vacation from my vacation. I come home worn out because I have crammed so many things into the time period.
This journey has taught me that there are some things I need to include along the way. I have learned that rest, balance, peace and patience help me rejuvenate. Having these items make the journey less of a chore and more of an adventure.
I have learned not to treat a journey like a 50-yard dash, but more like a marathon. This means I need to bring things that will give me staying power. The things I have shared with you this month are those things. Remember to tuck them in your suitcase for your trip.
