Are you ready to take your Holiday Traditions to another level?

“You cannot keep doing the same thing, the same way, and keep expecting something different to happen.” Beth Moore –

Well, maybe you can. Depends on who you ask. Many are  quite content with doing the same thing, year after year so if that describes you then this post is not speaking to you. Alternately, if you are someone who is tired of this repetitive, egocentric consumerist mentality of being, somewhat due to past generations creating materialistic Holiday traditions, then please, by all means, understand that you do have other options.

beth-moore_expecting-something-different

Doing the same thing year after year? Expecting something different? Buying more stuff? Stop it! Consider GIVING the Gift of a #TRAVEL experience to yourself or a loved one! Invest in new experiences, make memories in new places, educate you and yours about other cultures. Volunteer on a Holiday trip! Make Travel Memories! Just make a decision to go somewhere to do something different! Your Travel options are endless! And remember, when you plan to Travel, work with #TravelAgent Professional that you can trust and rely on for support before, during and after your trip!!

The Secret to Happiness? Spend Money on Experiences, Not Things

Be honest with yourself, are those $500 jeans going to make you happy tomorrow? Next week? Now how about a $100 pair of jeans and a $100 massage every Friday for the next four weeks? Trying to look like a movie star or a fashion model is a pricy endeavor and in the end the only one who comes out ahead is your credit card company. Instead of spending your hard earned bread on clothes and jewelry to make yourself look better, spend that money on activities that will make you feel better.
