Ever have an experience turning up when you need it? You may not even realize it until after the event has passed. I recently returned from three days in Anaheim, California. Hardly a top-travel destination, save the Disneyland enthusiasts, but the business convention at the Hilton revitalized and renewed me in countless ways.
The business planning and sales management course was content-rich and has helped shape a roadmap for my company’s growth. Yet, the travel experience proved far more worthwhile, jolting me from funk into a newfound appreciation of everyday simple pleasures, many of which were constrained the past two years:
- Easy, maskless flights.
- Genuinely friendly Uber drivers.
- Unexpectedly good coffee in the hotel room.
- The best bed I have slept in years.
- Pleasant exchanges with hotel staff and waiters.
- Pitch-perfect weather.
- Fragrant flowers accompanying my late-afternoon walks.
- Dozens of engaging conversations with other agents in attendance.
- A perfectly cooked filet at Morton’s.
- The arrival of thousands of Star Wars pilgrims donned in costumes and equipped with sabers.
- There was no visit to Disneyland, still, my trip was magical, enjoying everyday pleasures and relishing every minute.
- Wishing you a summer filled with simple joys.
