“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” Fitzhugh Mullan
We recently returned from a vacation that began with a few bumps in the road. Aladdin didn’t help with this one! It was a “do it yourselfer” trip to the beach…. It was hard not getting frustrated over little issues when ALL we wanted to do was cross the bridge, unload the car and walk out on the deck or beach and celebrate “being there.”
We were only able to stay for a few days, but they were good days…good food, good movies, good beach games, good shopping, good banana grams games…. What made them so good? We decided not to linger on frustrations and enjoyed the fleeting time we had that weekend with three adult children.
Upon returning home, we received a survey. I filled it out expressing disappointment. Then I added… “With all of that said, we enjoyed our weekend. In our case, time with family heals all frustrations.”
Don’t get stuck in the potholes. Enjoy your journeys.
