Vacation? What is that?

Christina Souza Ma

That is what my three-year old asked me the other day when I told him that we were finally going to take a vacation together. I realized at that moment that in the three years of his life we had never taken a vacation. It’s actually been three and a half years since I’ve taken a break from work.

That’s a long time working at the pace that we do. No wonder my body is not happy with me. I have not even been able to practice any asanas because my body goes into coughing spasms.

That being said, during this time of attempting to balance my bronchial imbalance, it’s made me come to the realization that I have been contradicting what I am sharing with others.

Here I am, so focused on sharing wellness and balance with everyone – and in the process I’ve thrown my own balance off. I had a good laugh the other day when I realized this. Someone asked me if the three months of coughing was worth the effort and focus of what it was that we were creating. I replied, “Absolutely, worth every single moment.

I just have to be more diligent with my approach the next time around so that I can keep myself balanced during the whole production. Good realization, right?
In the meantime, I am going to have great fun introducing my son to a “vacation” and showing him what it will be like to be able to spend seven days with Mummy not working!
