Family Weekend Breaks - How To Dream Again
By Jai Catalano
Taking a few family weekend breaks throughout the year can help you and your family in so many ways. It can help you recharge your battery while building deeper memories and stimulating fresh motivation for your return to the hustle and bustle of the real world. However, there is one very important element that we lost during adulthood, but with just a few family weekend breaks a year, we can tap into once again.
My son is 2 years old. He, like every other young boy, wants to be a fireman when he grows up. I don't know if he has a career in firefighting waiting for him in the future and I won't stop him from being one if he so desires. However, in order to be a fireman you MUST DREAM about it first.
Family weekend breaks give us the opportunity to let our daily guard down and dream again no matter how simple or crazy we dream. It allows us to sing those simple songs from our hearts that we haven't sung in a long time. It lets us dance like nobody is watching. It permits us to laugh freely and it gives us the ability to tap into our childhood that we have spent years learning to get away from.
You might be wondering how just a few family weekend breaks a year can help you dream again. Well let's do the math. There are 7 days a week. 5 of those 7 days you and your kids are at work and school. After coming home, you have about 3 hours to catch up from the day you just had, eat a little dinner, clean up, and then get ready for bed so that you can do that same routine all over again. Sound familiar?
Let's be real... There are 7 weekends during the year that turn the end of the week into a long weekend and there are plenty of places to go out-of-town or close to home that are affordable. And, dreaming doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. That means that you don't need to quite your job and redesign your life and career. It just means that you can get away from time to time and have fun exploring the endless possibilities that are just waiting to be discovered.
Ultimately, I am only sharing my personal experiences with you. But let me ask you this... What kind of father would I be if I didn't let my son put on his fireman outfit? Or, what kind of husband would I be if I didn't listen to my wife tell me that she wants to learn how to salsa? Better yet, what kind of man would I be if I wrote this article and hadn't taken up a dream of my own after just taking a few family weekend breaks?
