You have entered into a new reality…It’s the reality we all have to face. And it’s this…
You could be ruined by your All Inclusive beach trip.
SPOILER ALERT: YOU MAY NEVER WANT TO GO HOME!
You’ll come back from the airport Saturday night and reality will set in. Those 7-nights of pure bliss and relaxation have ended and you’ll wonder why your backyard view doesn’t include a front row seat to the ocean oasis. A dose of beach vacation could send you into a spiral of constantly wanting to click together your sparkly ruby slippers to be transported to turquoise blue waters and sandy shores of Mexico or the Caribbean. Feeling skeptical?
Here’s some things you didn’t realize were happening to you while on your All Inclusive vacation:
YOU COULD GET USED TO BEING WAITED ON HAND AND FOOT
Days of sticking a flag in the sand for servers to get your drink and food order may mess with expectation of what service will be like back in the States. Try that at home, and you’ll be waiting an endless amount of time or you’ll end up in the “dog house” with a remarkably ticked off significant other.
YOU COULD GET SLOPPY
In normal life, your bed doesn’t miraculously get made in the middle of the day by housekeeping and those scrumptious chocolates never appear at turn down service – wait a minute, there isn’t even turn down service at my house? And what about the rose petals and towel animals? WTH! I’m going back to the beach!
YOU COULD LOSE GRIP OF REALITY
Unlimited food & beverages? Yes please! It’s the All Inclusive way to get handy free drinks right and left. This is acceptable on an All Inclusive Beach Vacay, buuuuuuut maybe not in the states because (1) Excessive drinking/eating can be a problem and (2) In real life, continuous food and beverage ordering would result in an astronomical tab $$$ and ultimately lead to bankruptcy. Like our friend Michael Scott here.
YOU COULD START IMAGINING THINGS
Soon, ordinary objects in nature may start to resemble palm branches in the sky or tiny islands off in the distance. After so much adventuring into the unknown on your jungle excursions and ATV buggie rides, you may start to lose grip on reality and imagine your neighborhood contains old historic landmarks or hidden waterfalls or a swim-up bar at the local pool.
YOU COULD DEVELOP BEACH SEPARATION ANXIETY
You’ll have withdrawals, long for the sounding of waves, find yourself wearing flip flops in freezing weather, just to name a few. For all those diagnosed with “Beach Separation Anxiety”, there’s hope, check out our 12 Step Program For Beach Withdrawals.
YOU COULD RETURN TO OLD PATTERNS…BECAUSE YOU WERE “RUINED” IN THE BEST WAY
Relaxed, rejuvenated, inspired, invigorated, reminded of what matters, quality time with the ones you love. These are the feelings of a beach vacation. You’ll be “ruined” in the best kind of way and you’ll want to “ruin” yourself repeatedly. Soon, you’ll have convinced so many other people of your new reality that before you know it, you’ll have a group vacation trip on your hands.
