There are probably many people who have forgotten how to relax. And that is pretty scary. When I was muttering under my breath that I was bored and wishing I had brought along some work to do (which I on purpose had not) I knew I had to reexamine my attitude. I needed to rethink this. Because don't we all long for just this? Vacation. Getting away from it all. A life of luxury where we can do what we want. And here I am with exactly that. And I was complaining to myself. Am I crazy? So I took a walk. I lounged by the pool. I bought a cold drink, sat down and just people watched for (gasp) I don't even know how long. I watched a palm tree sway in the breeze. I forgot to look at my phone and check the time. I may have dozed off. I guess even I can relax.
So bring on the mojitos. Throw me in the pool. Invite me to a party. This grandma can put on her flip flops and mellow out with the best of them. This thing called relaxing is doing me some good. I may just put relaxation on my to do list
