December 10 – Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?
While it may seem silly and whimsical, I would definitely have to say that my wife’s and my Disney vacation was the wisest decision that we made this year. Sure, it cost us some money that probably could have been used a little more pragmatically, but we had such a good time. Relaxing, having fun, not having a care in the world.
With some stress having built up over the previous few months due to various life situations, both at work and at home, we needed to go just have some fun. We rode Space Mountain, we laughed with Monster’s Inc. We had some wine and food at Epcot. We got to see the best concert ever. Got to meet a pretty awesome dude.
Refreshed and recharged, but vacation tired, we returned home. Returned to “real life.” But, at least for me, with a new set of memories, a new set of experiences, which made the day-to-day a little more bearable. A little lighter. A little more fun. And that made the money and the travel entirely worth it.
Perhaps not the most financially sound decision, but definitely the most wise.
