Whether we are at home or going somewhere we can have absolutely amazing vacations. What our fun time looks like depends on our mindset.

Let me give you a great scenario to explain what I mean.

I met a couple who just returned from a cruise. I asked them how it was? The answers that came from the husband and the wife were completely different. The husband answered that it was wonderful, the wife said that it was horrible. He said that they visited many wonderful ports, the food was amazing and the entertainment on the ship was fantastic. She said that she had to walk too much, it was too hot, the food was awful and the entertainment was lousy. It was like they came from two different cruises.

What was different about those two people?

Their expectations. The husband was expecting to have fun and he did. He had the time of his life. What is it that we expect from this year’s vacations? Do we expect them to be perfect with lots of fun? If we do, no matter if we go to Paris, on a cruise or visit our family, or simply stay at home, we are going to have lots of fun. It is not where we go, it is what we take with us. And that is our mindset.

So, how can we, create our vacations the way we want?

We need to put in our mind the perfect scenario for our fun time. See it in our minds. See, that our plane is on time, the accommodations are awesome, we have a gorgeous view from our room, the food is amazing, etc. and everything goes very smoothly and it is lots of fun. It our minds it is already a done deal!

Then, we need to expect that our perfect scenario is going to happen. It is important that we stay calm and focus our mind on fun.

I played with my last vacation. That time I wanted to stay home. My husband and I took some fun boat rides, went to the movies, saw places I didn’t know that existed in our city and we had so much fun! It was one of the best vacations ever!

So, whether you are going somewhere or staying at home you can have the time of your life when you expect your vacations to be awesome!

Have an absolutely magical week full of LOVE, GRATITUDE and FUN!!!
