My nature is to dive into a situation and then just work my way through it. I rarely shy away from a challenge – it keeps me on my toes since I bore easily. Of course there are consequences of this type of rash behaviour. Its always in the back of my mind that I’m going to pay for it, but a majority of the time I just don’t give a shit. I always have the philosophy that things will work itself out.
My friend emailed me about a month ago to ask me if I wanted to go on vacation with her next year, that’s right, next year. Hell, I’m still working on this year. I reluctantly agreed, I actually wanted to say “no” but just didn’t have the heart to (my first mistake), but told her that a resort vacation was out of the question. Lounging by the pool for a week or two is not my idea of a vacation anymore.
If there is one big thing that has changed since I came back from my work in the Dominican is my view on travel and the goals I want to accomplish in the next two years. That trip changed me and gave me some clarity. So, I’m regretting agreeing to this shared vacation. What to do, what to do…
Its not going to kill me to go on vacation with her – my friend is great. Traveling with someone is nice just for the companionship. But, I’ve also come to like traveling by myself. Or at least traveling with someone who is like-minded. I’m very independent, my friend is not. I’m not saying this is a bad thing, but what I am saying is that I’ll probably want to do a lot of things on my own and she won’t do her own thing. I could be wrong, but I’ve done enough vacations with her to know how she travels.
I can go anywhere by myself. Its just that simple for me. My friend, on the other hand, doesn’t like traveling on her own. So, its my own fault for not answering honestly in the first place. I will think of a way to make this work. This is an example of how its not good to be impulsive. 😐
