Dear Travel Agents/Advisors,
Have you ever wished that you started your business years ago? Or wished for more friends? More followers? More money…… How easy it is to visit the land of “How I Wish!”
People do this all the time, and it causes such frustration and anxiety. These thoughts can come at any time – even to people who seem to have it all – because no one really has everything they want!
I love reading posts from travel agents celebrating their first booking. I still remember mine and all the emotions I felt. My feeling of accomplishment was huge, as though I couldn’t fit it all inside myself! I remember how I felt on my first trip to Europe… my first time on an airplane… my first cruise… (I brought so many medications because I was sure I was going to be seasick!)
I love the feeling of arriving in a new country and being amazed by a different culture, colors, smell, etc. I also love the posts of people thanking God for another day, and celebrating the opportunity to start again.
What happens to the memory of those wonderful feelings when people spend their time thinking, “How I wish I had …..?” How can we guide our thoughts to think more about our blessings instead of “How I Wish?” Can you imagine that others wish to be just like us?
Life isn’t always fair. I am writing this not only to remind you of this, but also to remind myself to be less critical, to treat myself and others more kindly, and for us all to be our own real best friends. Life is too short, especially when we spend our time frowning and wishing we had, or we were, or we did.
To all the beauty in the world that only those who really love themselves can see and celebrate, raise your head high and smile. You deserve beauty and happiness!
Cheers to you!
