Staying calm before a trip

31 July 2012

I’m leaving town tomorrow for more than a week and I’m trying not to let myself get caught up in pre-trip hysteria. Today was back-to-back appointments and I still have a number of things I have to do, like pack (and, before that, figure out what I’m going to pack).

But I’m trying really hard to let it be easy. I’ll be visiting family and friends, so I don’t need to get too worried about clothes. My travel arrangements are all made and the details safely stored in my Smead Travel Organizer. I’m taking my computer, and my cell phone acts as a wifi hot spot, so anything I don’t manage to do before I leave town can still get done.

So why do I typically work myself up into a bit of a frenzy, trying to get everything done, fretting over packing? This trip, I’m going to take my Let It Be Easy motto to heart. You know, just writing this has made me feel more calm.

Incidentally, I’m going to try to continue my five-day-a-week blogging streak while I travel, but I don’t know if I’ll be successful. So keep your eye on this space to find out!
