I recently took a trip with my daughters and my best friend to a resort in the Texas Hill Country.
That was us at the airport, all excited and looking forward to some relaxing girl time!
But, what I was not prepared for was to be totally cut off from the outside world. NO cell service and EXTREMELY limited internet. There was one bench situated by the office that if you sat on it, you could pick up spotty internet service. Wow!
I didn’t realize how dependent I’d become on staying connected. I have to admit I freaked out a little. I had an online board meeting I’d miss with the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, and I had blogs to keep up with and emails to answer, not to even mention Facebook and Twitter.
But, what could I do? We had paid our money and we were there in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Isolated, cut off and yet pampered. It took an entire day for me to finally get over the panic and let go. After all, what could I do?
So, by the second day, I was resigned to the situation and began to relax. Of course the massage and facials helped. 🙂
For me, it was a HUGE lesson in letting go and being in the moment. It is something I don’t do well, so THANK YOU, Escondida Resort for the lesson. The time spent with my beautiful girls and my friend was time I’ll never get back again.
And, I have NO regrets!
