Behaviors change when we’re living in abundance.
It’s cliche, but married people have different sex lives than single people. As adults, even young ones, we don’t have the same gravitational pull towards candy or treats as we do as children.
I remember having a conversation with a friend about buying music CD’s. I didn’t like that I could afford whichever ones I wanted. It had gotten to a point where I’d even buy music and not listen to it as soon as I got home. Buying music wasn’t special anymore.
I lost that “special feeling” because I had become “successful”.
It’s ironic that it’s in abundance where we lose sight of our appreciation for indulgences. One would imagine that the pursuit of wealthy life would end in abundance, not become harder to appreciate.
You should vacation more often
Everyone needs to vacation more.
Realistically, it’s not always possible.
I happen to live in NYC. A lot of people come to NYC for vacation.
Why do I have to go somewhere else to get a little (vacation)?
I get that part of vacationing is getting away (and I’ll be doing that in December).
Incorporating a little stay-cation is a great idea, but I’d suggest you role play.
Pretend you’re a tourist. Schedule it. Anticipate it the same way you would a vacation. And when the time comes…
Turn off your fucking phone and enjoy it.
