Our Family Chicago Staycation

Friday, August 30, 2019

Sometimes things don't work out how you plan or want. This is life. And sometimes, if you get out of the way and let go of your plans, life will surprise you with the best gifts.

Originally our last vacation of the summer was supposed to be to San Diego. But due to scheduling conflicts, we had to cancel that trip. And while I was a little sad, okay maybe a lot sad, I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had on our Chicago staycation. And now we have a new family tradition - a Chicago staycation before going back to school. It's not just a stay-cation, it's a Chi-cation!

As the saying goes, “In Life, It’s Not Where You Go, It’s Who You Travel With” – Charles Schulz. And let's be honest, Chicago in the summer is just the best city ever. Here are a few highlights from our family's Chicago Staycation.


Finding Purpose in Being Present

So, I quit my job. I wrestled with the decision for a long time, but eventually I realized that my heart was no longer in it. I had lost my passion for work and in its place were constant feelings of guilt and anxiety. Busyness and worry ruled my life.
