I Just Took A Break – Have You?


I have just returned from a much-needed two-week vacation with my family. It was nice to “recharge the battery” and decompress in preparation for a busy summer and fall at work.

Have you planned some time off this summer as well? Don’t you dare skip vacation this year! Everyone needs a break from the daily rigours of life.

I know some people have the mindset that they will impress their bosses by skipping vacations and I am sure that you can guess my opinion on that. I DON”T LIKE IT!

Trust me, take the break – you need it!

If finances are an issue – you can even have a “staycation”. Take holidays and not go anywhere.

Here is an interesting article that I came across about “staycations”. It is a few years old, but still relevant today:


Enjoy your summer, and don’t forget to take some time for YOU!

  1. I sure did! How was your vacation?

  2. Awesome Timmy! Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Its easy for me to make excuses about vacation. You are right, we all need down time. Thanks for a great post! My vacation is coming up in a few weeks!

    • Hey Douglas! Awesome glad to see that you are going to take a vacation soon. Should keep you fresh for the rest of the year… Stay in touch and thanks for stopping by.

  4. Good for you man, always great to recharge, I live on the beach so every afternoon I take a mini vacation, and off to Greece in August, I’m pumped!! Glad you’re back buddy!

  5. Hi Tim I am all for taking that needed break it keeps us going. I am looking forward to a trip next month back to Italy where I will be attending immersion school for two weeks and then a break with some fun in Paris. Life is just too short not to take the time to get away! How is that baby doing? I bet growing fast..

    • Wow I am jealous Tina! Sounds like it will be a fantastic trip. Have a wonderful time. I agree life is too short so enjoy all the time away that you can get. Boys are doing well. Rowan just turned 7 months and is quite the little character…
