We are headed off for vacation for a week. This has been a long awaited holiday, one that contains no deadlines, hopefully no stressful story chasing, no early morning rises; in other words, a slow news week! It stretches before us like a deliciously long book – you flip a page and you encounter something completely different. It means time to indulge in whatever you wish. For some, it is a time to travel, unencumbered by the call of the office, while for some it is time to catch up with friends and do all those things we have promised ourselves we would “when we have some free time.”
A vacation is not a time to accomplish a long list of chores. If that is the case, one might as well stay in the office and keep working! At some point, you have to give yourself the gift of time and rest. How many times do we say, “I wish I had enough time to do nothing!” Your vacation is perhaps the best time for you to do just that.
So, in anticipation of our time off, we hope to encourage you to make the very best of your holiday. Don’t even try to plan; just go with the flow. Remember that you aren’t tethered to the desk, and if you want to spend your entire time off vegging out in front of the TV, do so. Call friends, have an impromptu get-together, or go to the beach and see what thousands of people pay loads of money to enjoy. It’s probably not time to start reading that thousand-page book, but rather, time to make great memories to tide you over when your time is up and you have to go back to the dreaded office. Who knows, you will be so rested, you’ll find yourself looking forward to the structure of work. And if not, at the very least, you will have enjoyed yourself thoroughly and can look forward to doing more of the same on your next vacation.
On that note, we say thanks for reading The San Pedro Sun, and we will be back June 4th! If you stumble upon us being lazy lugs on the beach, pass the sunblock and pull up a chair for a chat.
