Design A Life You Don’t Need A Vacation From

Design A Life You Don't A Vacation From

I think I’ve figured out the point of life. Or the goal. For my life at least.

Design a life you don’t need to take a vacation from or retire from.

Think about vacations…

Some are to travel and soak up other areas of the world. But that’s not what I’m talking about.

I’m thinking about the ones where you go to relax. Sit somewhere beautiful and do the things you enjoy, or stay somewhere with amenities you desire. To get away from all the stuff.

Why do you have to go somewhere to do that?

Why not design a life you love so that every day could be a vacation?

Yes, we still have responsibilities and careers, but why not have a home that can give you a relaxing vacation after work? Why not let go of some of the hustle and bustle and enjoy a more simple, relaxed, vacation-paced life?

I think I’ve done this with my recent year of minimalism and simplifying life, and moving into my new home.

What would be my ideal vacation involve? A comfy chair, lots of books, gentle breezes, coffee or tea, not a lot of plans, cats and dogs, and a cozy, uncluttered environment.

I feel that every time I walk into my house. I feel relaxed. I feel cozy. Eager to read and learn. Content. Happy.

Our day-to-day lives shouldn’t be something we need to escape from.

  1. I love this. I’ve been thinking a lot about my dream life this year and have taken steps towards it. Now I’m such a homebody, I dont mind having a staycation at home to work towards my goals for my home, family or blog. Now I just got to get my hubby in that same state. Stopping by from Share the Wealth and tweeted your post.

  2. Mine is actually a mix of fast paced and relaxed. I live by this mentality too and genuinely love my the way I live my life. Working out, reading, snuggling babies, taking care of my home, helping people get fit. Its a dream, but I try to remind myself that it only remains so while I work hard to keep it that way ?

  3. I like the way you put it. Although at the end of the day, all we can really do is find some work we enjoy doing and do it. So that our work is our fun.
