I've been thinking a lot about vacations lately. My "vacations" usually consist of type 2 fun, a trip where I need a vacation from my vacation. I'm not good at sitting still and just being. When I do manage to sit, it's never still. I'm only half present. My mind races with ideas and to-do lists, or I pick up my phone to distract myself.
@halfwayanywhere and I are heading on an actual vacation this weekend. No hiking (or extreme walking, or whatever), no climbing, just hanging out, just the two of us. Last night, he also suggested no work, which, for both of us, includes social media and something resembling an online presence. It's easy to disconnect when there's no cell service, but when we'll still be in civilization, the temptation to always be on is so real.
This weekend, I'm unplugging. I'm challenging myself to be absolutely present, and sit with whatever life throws my way, no distractions. See y'all on the other side!
