Why do people take vacations? One reason is to get away, relax, change the pace and gain a sense of perspective. If we are looking to make a change in our lives, we have to change our viewpoint: ask a different question, see the situation in a new light, be willing to look through a new lens. Maybe we need to focus in closer, to ask, what actually is the problem here? Or, maybe we need to zoom out and see the bigger picture, how does this fit into the overall scheme of things?

Another reason for taking a vacation would be to experience new cultures, or see new vistas, both to learn and expand our thinking. For the weight loss, that means trying and enjoying new foods and setting new goals to keep our sights set forward.
We might take a vacation to challenge ourselves. To climb a mountain or ski down one. To sail across the ocean or jump with a parachute. To meet new people or volunteer in a community that needs help. And calling it fun.

|set our sights on the path ahead|
