Are you OK? Am I OK?
It is March 1st, and it is still cold on the majority of the North Hemisphere. On the calendar, spring starts on March 20th.
Covid is still present, and now we are facing the war with Ukraine (have you ever been to Ukraine?), and prices are going up on many things.
Travel Agents/Advisors are supposed to dress with their best smiles and create the most beautiful travel dreams for their clients and prospective ones. For many, it is a tough job!
What I want to say to all of you out there, especially to those who read my blogs, is that it is OK to feel blue, sad, and even to start your day a little late when the blankets call you a little longer.
For those of you out there who feel even more sad, those of you who are really struggling with all of this, you are not alone. Please get some help, call a friend, and find a reputable therapist and/or psychiatrist. It is OK to feel sad. Even the most optimistic people, as many Travel Agents/Advisors who see the world as a beautiful and poetic place to celebrate life, are allowed to feel blue.
There are some countries that right now can’t be on anyone’s bucket list, unfortunately. Venezuela and Myanmar were on mine, and I had to delete them. Luckily, I have been to Ukraine before.
I have already been to many countries in Asia so I don’t need to wait for them to open for tourists right now. But they are definitely worth the wait!
The world is a “little” upside right now. I will let you define “little,” and I encourage all TA’s to continue promoting travel, because despite all, we all need to travel to discover our best selves.
Cheers my friends, and remember IT IS OK!
