Take your time off: It belongs to you

“An upcoming vacation gives us something to eagerly anticipate.” -Jaime Kurtz

This past weekend, I finally got my act together. I sat down and started planning vacations. Yes, multiple ones. I have use or lose days and I am of the firm belief that those earned vacation days are truly earned. You need to take them as they do belong to you.

I have subscribed to this sentiment but often, as many Americans, I have not taken vacation. I kept working and working. Even on vacation I have checked in on work.

However, I am at a point in my life where I know I earned and deserve a vacation. And, those around me will be happy when I take one.

I will leave you with this food for thought.

“Don’t pick a job with great vacation time.  Pick one that doesn’t need escaping.”

  2. For me vacation is a state of mind more than an actual event. I have been on “vacations” that seemed more like work than work. I find it’s important to find ways to detox from habitual schedules, even for short times. as opposed to suffering while waiting for that next “vacation.” Great post!
