We know that it is difficult to be optimistic all day, every day and sometimes we need a little nudge to get back on track! This is the time we need to be with the ones we love the most. It could also be the simple act of meeting a long lost friend, having a cup of tea with a parent, or going for a walk with your best friend. Most times, it’s the company that matters more than the advice, and that is the power of being together!
Nowadays it is hard to spare some time for a few days holiday. If we plan to go for one, we have to plan it long before the time. Sometimes, it gets difficult for all the people, with whom we plan to go on the trip to be available at the same time. Our trips, picnics, outings, all of it depends on our work and we have to plan according to it. And it gives us immense satisfaction and happiness, when we go on the trip with all the close people together.
Last year, in the October month of 2014, I had finally planned a long vacation in Mahabaleshwar with my family. After the busy schedule and the continuous work, a person needs some time to slow down and enjoy. After the long discussions and adjusting the dates according to the person’s work schedule, we had eventually decided to go on a trip to the most amazing hill station situated in the state of Maharashtra. We had made the bookings for the same, a month prior and we were totally looking forward to this family trip. It had been a very long time for us that we were going together for a small family vacation, a family time.
Though we had travelled to this place many times earlier, but, still we googled for some new places to visit. Later on we had made a list of places we can visit.
I was very excited for the trip as I badly needed a break. Continuous work and the same boring schedule had made me so tired that, I needed some change, some freshness. I had a lot of hope on this trip. We had stayed in the same hotel where we use to stay earlier whenever we had been to Mahabaleshwar. During one of my school trips, than our earlier family trips, we had always preferred the same hotel for the delicious food they serve and also because of the hotel, which was located in the midst of amazing greenery and had a beautiful scenic view from our hotel room. We had been there for a week and every single day we had visited a new place. I was so happy that I couldn’t express it. It was a sweet flashback of the wonderful memories I had made. It’s true sometime, when simply being with the right person is enough to make us feel happier and better. Being with the closest people of my family, this trip was wonderful. After a week, I didn’t want to return back and I had desired to stay back for a couple of days more.
After the trip was over, my routine got same. But, I had more positivity and more freshness to work back. Sometimes, a person needs a change to get back on track. And for me, that trip proved to a wonderful dose to get back on track.
