Vacation is over... back to reality

My vacation started on June 1st ends today. Tomorrow I'm going to the office. However much fun I was having at the beach and pool of Barcelo resort I must return to normal day-to-day annoyances.

There is a fair amount of research showing that shortly after return from a vacation, the happiness level is lower than it was beforehand.

I don't like the happiness research and consumer psychology but it is true, the vacation excitement is inevitably going to dissipate. It doesn't mean I should despair now. Life goes on, new adventure awaits me.

I liked my vacation and maybe I will go back next year too. The resort is beautiful, so many activities, food is excellent and I really recommend everyone to visit Barcelo resort at Mayan Riviera. I was with my friend and his son, mostly on the pool and at night going out for drinks. I was not alone but I tried to have a quiet time for myself.

Did I solve any of questions I put in front of me before vacation? The hell no. I have resolved nothing, I have left everything as it is and I've given it to the Universe to deal with it. 😜

My main concern is to do daily yoga practice, be physically and mentally strong and happy, and of course, cut my belly fat, drink less, smoke less and look good. 

Yesterday, I woke up at 4:30 a.m. had coffee and quickly packed the last things, closed suitcase and had breakfast before bus picked us up at 6:25 a.m.. The travel was okay, everything was on time and we came to Toronto 30 minutes earlier of schedule. I was at home by 4:30 p.m.

My girlfriend was waiting me in my apartment when I came. I was so glad to see her, I missed her a lot. Our 2 years dating anniversary is next month and I bought her a wonderful present in Mexico, sapphire and diamonds gold ring. I like the ring so much, it reminds me of her.

I have concluded that she is really what I want and what I need in my life. I do not want to get married and I think it is still early for me to start living with a girlfriend. Our relationship maybe is not one of the best out there but I love her for what she is. 

I am completely okay seeing her once or twice per week. We talk on the phone often. She is my best buddy and I hope I am a best friend to her. How long this will last I don't know but who really cares. I enjoy having her in my life.

This morning I had 12th yoga practice in June. It was sweaty, 50 minutes long practice. I am strong and flexible and I enjoyed the practice. My plan is to do 6 practices this week. 

After practice, I showered and went outside for a breakfast at Tim's. I also had haircut this morning. And although I didn't shave since Mexico, I look rested.

Today in Toronto is 32 C and it is really hot. I went to High Park for a walk but I did not enjoy it. It was so humid and rain started so I returned home around noon.

Tonight is beer night with my friends. I will go to meet them and tell them the Mexican stories. World soccer cup is going on and I am trying to follow it, the games started to get interesting... etc. etc. so here I am, the vacation is over and I am back to reality.
