We’ve been there, done it. Booked a much needed wellness retreat in a stunning location. Found a last minute flight to get us there. Got to the airport just in time to hop on the plane. Nothing to eat on the plan. Aargh! We should have thought about that. Arrived on time but got stuck in traffic on the way to the resort. Hello! It’s the weekend. Everyone is heading that way.
Retreat was amazing, transformative, inspiring.
Got stuck in traffic again on the way to the airport. Yes, it’s Sunday evening. Everyone is going back home! Flight gets delayed because of too much air traffic. Arrived back home late, exhausted and ready for another retreat.
Where did our relaxation go? Was this a good investment? Did we make a mistake?
We should have known about the traffic to and from the retreat. We should have slowed down a little earlier, take a couple extra days of vacation time to allow for a slow arrival and smooth return. We should have known better. We should have planned better . . .
