Do you feel guilty for repeatedly putting off your family vacation? Do any of the below comments sound familiar?
- My kids are too young, they won’t remember anything.
- It’s too difficult to plan a vacation for my entire family
- I’m too busy right now.
You are in good company. Most families struggle with the same dilemmas. How do families like yours end up on fantastic vacations together? Often it just takes hearing a few stories of families who made the leap and were rewarded with a multitude of awesome benefits.
In fact, it doesn’t have to be a leap. While you could take an extended trip to the other side of the world, you can also take a long weekend trip close to home. Either way, each member of your family will benefit and you will be grateful you did. Once you start adding travel to your list of priorities in life, you will want to experience the same joy and excitement over and over again. Remember you only live once.
Busy-ness zaps value from family connection; vacations repair that.
Let’s face it, you are busy. Your day is full of deadlines, meetings, errands and appointments. Whether it is work, school, household duties or extracurricular activities, your full days create stress. You have a jam packed schedule. It’s a never-ending cycle.
Or is it? When you and your family members step away from the busy-ness of day-to-day life and the stress that goes with it, something amazing happens. Each of you begins to relax, slow down, and accept that during vacations there are no time commitments or ‘must dos’. There is only a sense of wonder and excitement about doing what you want and not what you must. Simply select your activities as you go based on each family members preferences and moods. Bask in each stress-free moment together, for one another, instead of for the next commitment on the calendar.
And with that, I would like to know where your next stamp in your AFA passport will be from?
