You work so hard. Between work, family and friends, you’ve got a million commitments, and you handle them with grace. You deserve a break. Taking a full-stop rest and escaping to some faraway exotic locale can be just the ticket to rejuvenate you.
Other times however, such a vacation takes so much extra work—from time off to jet lag to the expense—that it’s almost not worth it. Sometimes the preparations necessary to step out of your day-to-day life can be so overwhelming that you end up feeling like you need a vacation to recover from your vacation.
Consider this: perhaps you do not need, or even want, a full-stop step outside your life. Perhaps there is no reason to escape. Your life is a lovely, sturdy thing you’ve worked hard to design. Maybe you simply need a pause.
Hop the cheapest flight to anywhere, or drive to the nearest city you already love. Bring your phone and laptop and continue with your regular life. But when you’re done for the day, enjoy the pause. Go out, and raise a glass to yourself and the fantastic life you’ve created. You’re amazing, and you should pause to remember that.
Do it all while wearing your favorite Chamilia charm bracelet. The bracelet that speaks to your everyday life, wonderful as it is. The one with charms that are most you: your birthstone, your favorite flower, gifts from loved ones. When you get home, add on the Cheers charm. Let the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals remind you of the time you raised a glass to yourself and the wonderful life you’ve built. Here’s to you!
