Remembering to be grateful

It’s easy to go on vacation and have an amazing time… only to come home to reality and fall back into the same routine of work, eat, sleep, clean, shop and repeat.

Life is precious and wonderful, and time goes by quickly.

I can’t believe that I was lucky enough to visit Maui with my mother for the third time a month ago. The week felt like a fairytale. We had an absolutely amazing time, and I was so sad to leave the gorgeous island.

The Hawaiian islands are a very special place, but going on vacation reminded me how important it is to enjoy each and every day – no matter where I am. Home is just as beautiful as the places I’ve travelled to, and it should be celebrated in the same way.

So, I’m really trying to slow down, look around and enjoy each day. That includes smiling at others on the street, and being friendly and polite to the cashier at the grocery store.

Life – no matter where you are – is something we should always be grateful for.
