I'm ready for some travel. The kind of travel where I wake up, pack my bags full of hoodies and leggings, buy snacks and a large vanilla latte, turn off my phone and head out on the open road.
While we all love our families, there has to be a place in our lives to travel with our friends. Not a Thelma and Louise kinda travel, but something a little healthier. I read an article claiming it has been proven that friendship can extend life expectancy, lower chances of heart disease, and even help us better tolerate pain. Really!
With friends and family being connected more on social media, we forget the need to connect in person. We postpone our Friend Time for more pressing matters in our day-to-day life. Sometimes I realize it's been months since I've seen someone who lives just around the corner from me, just because we have busy lives.
I have a friend who travels full time. She lives in an RV and gets all around the lower 48 and into Alaska every year. She's always inviting me to join here on her adventures. Maybe it's time I took her up on one.
I've always believed that a woman needs to take care of herself to have anything to give to her family. If I run myself into the ground (which I do a little too often) and I wake up with no energy, no patience and entirely exhausted, I'm not going to be a good person to live with.
“Sorry Floyd, sorry boys. Mommy needs to boost her immune system, increase her oxytocin levels and hit the road! See ya when I see ya!”
Thanks for reading! Love hearing from people, so leave a comment below!
Sina Sena is a small island, Alaska girl, who has BIG goals! She is a novice coffee connoisseur loves romance novels and is always down to eat sweets! She is married to her high school sweetheart, and they are trying to not get run over by their three boys! As a mom she believes that it is important to maintain her own identity and knows she is better because she works hard everyday to pursue her own goals. If you ever want to talk business, it is what makes her want to leap out of bed everyday (except in the winter, because Alaska is freaking cold then)!
