Is Hawaii in my future?

Related Posts with ThumbnailsIf you follow my blog a while back I posted if I lost all the weight the doctor wanted me to lose, I would go to Hawaii. Well good news is that I've lost all the weight and more (over 50 pounds in two years) The bad news is that I'm also in the process of getting divorce so money is and will be tight. I put the idea of going to Hawaii on the back burner.
Today, someone I didn't know before offered me a week stay in their condo on Maui. I know it's my mom's spirit pushing me to go, but Hawaii is a place for honeymooners, not single people. I went there for my honeymoon over 30 years ago (boy that makes me feel old) and if I was still married, I wouldn't hesitate. The condo lani is right on the water and I will see the whales breaching without even having to get out of bed.  It's not that I won't travel alone, but Hawaii is a couples vacation spot IMO. There are some hiking trails I would like to try but again it's more fun to hike with a buddy.  It's not everyday you get an offer like this. So what should I do? Go on the trip alone or give it up to a charity to auction off?

New life - new adventures! You need this time to reflect, relax and renew your spirit. Get it out of your head that it's a "couples place" --- it's what YOU make of it. GO GIRL GO!!!

You should go ............. it will be the beginning of your new independent life and many new travel experiences.

By all means, go! You won't regret it. And you may very well meet other single folks. In my early 20's I had an opportunity to go -- alone -- and you bet I went. Rented a car, drove the Hana highway, went to the volcano (with a new friend whom I met there), etc. GO! Ann in IL

You should go - it's the most peaceful place on earth. You will love it and might just get a new direction. Please go.

Can your daughter or a friend go with you? A change of location and pace may be a good refreshing break for you right now.

I would go. Create new memories and use it as time to reflect. Although you have only thought of Hawaii as a couples place, I would go if I could in a heartbeat. If you can't get a friend to go with you, than take this opportunity to clear your mind and focus on your new future. Take it as a challenge and adventure and continue on your path of change. Sounds like you could take a break to listen to the ocean, watch the sunsets and clear your mind maybe even have a mai-tai! Trust me life doesn’t go as expected or planned and we need to get these preconceived notions out of our head sometimes.
