Is this a Better Way to Spend Resort Girl Days?

Resort-Girl-Roadtrip

Consume less
Buy less
Reuse more
Un-store
Give away
But save for a rainy day
Share because you care
Dare to
Downsize
Right size
Resize your mind
Find more time
To be kind
Put your worries on delay
Discover a new way
Don’t let your thoughts scatter
Focus on a new matter
When it comes to stress
Refuse to say yes
Get up and move
Find your own groove
Stretch more
Step outside of the door
You just might
Find life
Is brighter
As your spirit is lighter
And your soul soars
With fewer chores
Grab a cup of joe
Let its warmth glow
Hibernate inside
Under the sheets
Delight in a movie
Until it’s complete
Have a lazy day
You may
Just say
This is a better way
To spend my days!

Resort Girl Reflects on Life’s Second Chances

December 20, 2017

What if, by chance, you were granted a second chance?

Many times over the course of our lives we think, “If I could only do it over again, how could my life, career, and family have played out differently?” As we get older, and we reflect on this question even more, as by this time, life has tested us many times over.

Our daily pattern looks set in many directions – many ways look good, some look so-so and a few appear to be not so good. It is when we start to focus so much on the not so good that we fail to overlook the valuable aspects of life. Society has become increasingly critical, allowing us unprecedented access to other people’s lifestyles. Life has been photoshopped and chopped into showing only the excellent moments of life, beauty and family. But where the true beauty lies…in my eyes…are in the imperfections of life.

Real…not reality. This comparison hit me while studying the vegetables in the produce department of my local grocery store. Reality can be compared to the orange that has been grown organically, but whose skin has spots of brown and green. Contrast that with the almost unreal bright, unblemished and dyed orange skin that was grown with chemicals. Sitting side by side, the artificially enhanced orange appeals more to the eye; BUT, when you peel them back, it is the natural one that melts in your mouth with its genuine, sweet taste. It is how nature created it. Though it may not look as good on the shelf, it is the one with the greatest flavor.

So, maybe we don’t really need some of those second chances in our lives. Maybe we just need to keep all of these photoshopped moments of the most excellent life in perspective, and recognize that maybe some of the ups and downs that are part of our imperfect days can help us realize how sweet our life truly is.

It’s okay to have a few blemishes in our life. They help us grow. They help us know our core. They help us find our true gifts. They help us discover who our true friends and partners are. So, when you see that perfectly photoshopped moment…rejoice in allowing yourself to be a bit imperfect. It made you who you are and lends to the creation of your true life. How sweet it is, Resort Girls and Guys!

Sail Away to the Deep Sea of Tranquility

November 10, 2017

They churn
They sway
In the wake they create
As they make
Their way
To the pier
Then the parking lot
And their designated spot
Nestled in among the other boats and yachts
Some historic
Some enormous
Some sleek
And some just neat
They arrive here to rest
To nest
And let the owners de-stress
But the members of the crew
Knew
In the morning dew
They would leave when the first wind blew
The sailboats get the first winds
Little waves they make
And the mighty yachts
Follow in their spots
Breaking with motor speed
As they all weave
To the beautiful deep sea
And the glorious waters of tranquility…

Sail away Resort Guys and Girls

Can you Spring Anew Resort Girls and Guys?

October 28, 2017

Can you start anew?
Can you make another dream come true?
You can…by keeping a positive view
I believe it is true
That you
Can always
Spring anew!
Like the seasons do
Like the trees do
Like the seedlings too
If and only if
YOU
Believe it is true
Can you renew?
Can you develop into a new
And better
You?
It is up to you and only
You
Cast away the negatives
Say no, not me
I am still able and free
To be
Young and healthy
Say
My body thrives
My mind still dives
Into new adventures
Always venturing
Keep dreaming away
Every day
Break…
Rise and shine
With only hopeful thoughts in mind
It is only when we give up
That our souls grow old
We are to leave this world as children
Life to the end can be filled with fun
Run, Run, Run
From those who categorize you
By the number of your years
It is just their fears…
Each year
Is filled with beauty beyond compare
Do not compare
Them to old
Like the seasons
Each year builds a new
YOU
Never give into reasons
You are told
Why you cannot be bold
While your soul
Always stays dreaming!

The Leaves of a Resort Girl Life

October 17, 2017

A quote by one of my favorite personal development gurus, Jim Rohn, says:

Success is a Journey not a Destination

This seemed to be a theme this week in my reading – if you think you reach success and then stop – you will also put the brakes on your personal growth. Growth must always be a part of our life, even as we advance in age.

As I have officially arrived in the Fall season of my life, the leaves of life are starting to turn.

Like the Fall leaves, my true colors are starting to emerge. It took years to grow into who I am. Maybe that is what life is all about…growing into a beautiful person of many ideas, thoughts and – ultimately –wisdom.

We are so green and growing in our youth, just like the Spring blossoms. Then, we are bright and sunny during our adult years. Our souls are shining with new ideas and the thrill of discovery. We are like the burning rays of a hot summer day…setting the world on fire.

Then we reach the Fall years, when this growing turns our souls into their true beauty. We have become a mixture of colors influenced by all the loves, careers, cares and dares of our younger years.

Our souls are almost there…to the winter of our lives where we are wiped clean, like the first winter snow. Our minds and even hair turn to the purest of white…we are ready for eternal life.

I plan to appreciate the seasons of my life and not fight them. I will make the best of each season.
This is my season to appreciate what wisdom the world has given me and keep building and growing towards the peaceful Winter rest that is given to us.

We leave this world as we came, naked like the winter trees and with minds reborn just like a newborn.

That is my hope in life.
