Being that this week is Spring Break for us whom attend St. Thomas University here in Miami Gardens, Florida, I think this is the perfect opportunity to share this important fact; we need to remember the importance of vacations. No matter whether you stay home or travel, vacation is a very important thing in life that everyone should take every so often. If it weren’t for some type of vacation, I’m pretty sure we would all lose our minds from the stress of everyday work life.
Vacation is something that allows us to feel relief from our everyday schedules. It is something that should be enjoyed; something where you are able to relax and just enjoy the people whom you are spending it with. We won’t be able to take our materialistic items with us when we pass on, but we will be able to take the memories and the love that we share with those who mean the most to us. Vacation is a way that we are able to escape with those people and just remember what it means to be free! We are able to be children again; be childish in an adult body.
Even though it wasn’t during spring break, two weeks ago I had the opportunity to take a vacation with my family, which has not happened in a very long time. It was not too far from home, but it was just far enough for us to appreciate each other just a little extra and enjoy the time well spent together. We went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida. It was a vacation that lasted only 3 days, but will last a lifetime in my heart. The memories and time spent together were so special to me because it had been so long since we had all taken a vacation together as a family.
I feel time spent together with your family is important away from everyday rituals as it allows for you to discuss topics that you may not normally speak about or to do activities you normally wouldn’t be able to do. Vacation with family is a time to rekindle bonds and share in the laughter and fun times together! I hope to be taking many more vacations with my family while I have the opportunity to still do so! I aspire you all to do the same. =)
I hope everyone has a remarkable Spring Break whenever it may be held and no matter where you go or what you decide to do, but always remember that a vacation with those you love is another thing that you should not take for granted. It is time that you should forever remember and treasure. TIme goes quickly when we are having fun because we are all a part of something bigger than just time; we are love. Show it in more ways than one. Make your Spring Break special by spending “One of Those Days” with the ones you care about and hear the laughs and see the smiles that will last a lifetime.
