After my rather depressing winter, I decided that an attitude adjustment was in order for me. I’ve got a lot of things going well for me although I’m not going to lie – the things that make me unhappy are major (aren’t’ they usually though?)- the seemingly never-ending winters, my life of total boredom attributed to where I live and therefore responsible for my travels, and my on-the-job haunts. I’ve always been a rather pessimistic person towards myself, and at this point I fear that I may be unhappy wherever I am because of who I am. But, I’m not going to stay in this funk and complain any longer. I’m moving on up and out.
This year, I’ve spent quite a bit of time forcing negativity out of my life and thinking about positive things. I’ve also thought a lot about meditation. Ha! Ha! I’m still in the thinking phase on that one, but I do see meditation in my near future.
So with that, I decided to go to my beloved Boston and spend time with some friends in a totally unplanned vacation. It ended up being a smashingly wonderful week. I spent a wonderfully relaxing 36 hours in Martha’s Vineyard, my first ever trip there, for starters. And by whatever stroke of luck, a number of friends who don’t normally reside in Boston, or who I don’t normally see there when I do visit, just walked into my life. It was marvelous reconnecting, laughing, and, sharing our aspirations on these brief and not-so-brief chance encounters.
This was definitely a holiday planned by the stars.
