Time doesn’t slow down. But there are certain moments. Unforgettable moments. That just stick. Like that day at the lake. When they let go of everything except the handle of a kite. Simple pleasures are found. Worries are lost. Years later, you’ll picture it. Them. Running on the sand, enjoying the good life. And you’ll swear that somehow, time stood still. Wouldn’t that be nice?
There are cruise ships that are inflatable. There are ship’s captains that are also the social director and head chef. There are cruises boasting ports of call that are nothing more than a sand bar or two. And there are vacations that are what you make of them instead of what’s planned for you. A cruise with no all-you-can-eat buffets, musical shows or adult only areas. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Some gifts don’t involve wrapping paper or bows. Some gifts hang on walls. Some gifts awaken the beauty. And passion. And love in our world. These tiny little sponges who have been given to us to shape and to mold can be filled with the extraordinary. We can encourage their wonder, we can empower their dreams, we can impact them in ways that are beyond our own imagination. Because when we set them loose in the world of beauty and passion and love; they will astound us. And those gifts will
never fade. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Once in a while, there’s that moment, during a vacation, where time stops, and takes residence in your memories, forever. After any good vacation, what you’re really left with is a few precious moments in time. Frozen. Treasured. And locked away in your memory. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the time and space to pack in as many of those times as possible? If so, visit a place big enough for memories of wide-open spaces and bustling urban nightlife to call home. A place where the history is rich, pleasures are simple and the quiet beauty impacts everyone who takes the time to appreciate it all. And bring back a memory or two. Wouldn’t that be nice?
You remember the “firsts.” First date. First kiss. First love. They set the bar forever and each one is unforgettable. Without comparison. Out here, it’s simple. Your expectations are forgotten and quietly replaced by a new appreciation for the good life. A place where feeling a “first” is found again and again. Wouldn’t that be nice?
There’s a distinct moment when time stands still. At his brother’s side, he peels back the curtain of imagination, satisfying his hunger for exploration. Out here, a desire to discover finds its way into the pit of his stomach. It fills his mind full of wonder. Out here, it’s the good life—where curiosity is free to roam and inspiration runs wild. Spend a day in a wide open place with moments waiting to be uncovered. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Let her know that every place has a story. And when you do, be her greatest story teller. Be her source of wonder and awe and astonishment. Open her world to the stories that are immune to the spoils of time. To stories that become more valuable with each telling. To stories that are passed like precious heirlooms from one generation to the next. Sit with her. Focus on her. Show her that the good life is about laughing out loud more and LOL-ing less. Share all your stories in a place big enough for you to relax, focus on what’s really important and maybe just maybe, create a few stories of your own. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Around here, being in the right place has nothing to do with geography. Vacations don’t have to be about destinations. Or itineraries. Or grand events. In fact, most great vacation moments aren’t about meeting lofty expectations and even fewer are planned. Vacations can actually be about slowing down enough to notice that the biggest discoveries you make come from the ones who were with you all along. Wouldn’t that be nice?
