Facing your fears can be relaxing & rewarding
Sunday, November 1, I, along with my husband, and two of our best friends (who are also family), did something I thought I would never do… I took some xanax and climbed aboard the biggest boat I’ve been on for my very first cruise.
I was terrified! I have never wanted to get on a ship, sail on the ocean, just to be in the middle of no where. However, my husband has wanted to go for a while now, and since one of my sisters and her husband go all the time, I figured it was worth checking out. So, I sucked it up, and told J. we needed to go with them on this cruise. One of the best decisions I’ve made in a while!! Turns out, the best part of a cruise, for me at least, is being in the middle of no where! NO ALLERGIES!! Who knew?! I could breathe with ease – it was fantastic!
So, most of the posts I write, for a bit at least, are going to be about this cruise. I have too much information, and too many pictures to fit into one blurb! Now, I’m not saying that I won’t throw in a rant here and there, I’m just saying I’m not going to tell you I spent nearly two weeks on a big boat, I loved it, and Bob’s your uncle. I have a few stories to tell, e.g. I’ve been to Hell & back, and how I ate more food than should be humanly possible, yet only gained 3.1 pounds (all of which I’ve already lost!).
I have one more trip, family stuff – nothing fun, and then I am D.O.N.E. with traveling and people coming to visit, for at least a month or two. The last 14-15 months have been the most social, this introvert, has
ever been, and although I love my family, beyond measure, I need to recharge. The longer I go, the grumpier I get, and I honestly do not wish to offend anyone, especially the people I love.
Nothing whatsoever to do with anything I’ve just said, but it makes me smile every time I watch it, so I’ll just leave this here for you…
