Last weekend, my Mindful Doc colleagues and I spent three days at the Bacara Ritz Carlton in Santa Barbara.
I had the best time ever! The first kid-free weekend in 15 months.
Packing took place until the last minute because I made sure school stuff, meals, extracurriculars, and the nanny schedule were all lined up.
It was my first solo vacation in a while, so instead of an exhausted mom look, I chose a beachy chic.
I even brought my curling iron.
It was a trip full of adventure, relaxation, and rest.
✅ Nap by the pool while reading a book uninterrupted, yup you read that right.
✅ A signature massage- completely unrushed
✅ Adult only pool
✅ First time kayaking for real
✅ Lots of food and drinks 😉
I must have been so relaxed that I forgot to check all the drawers before leaving.
That housekeeper had stowed away my curling iron in one of the bottom drawers, so I didn’t see it.
As far as I was concerned, there was nothing I could do, so I was ready to order a new one, until @Kay Rash suggested I call the Ritz.
She’s right! Anything is possible at the Ritz.
They found it and sent it back via Fed Ex in 2 DAYS!
I couldn’t understand why it never occurred to me to ask?
Why did I assume defeat so quickly?
What if I just asked more questions?
What if anything was possible?
The experience blew my mind.
While I am not shaming myself for not asking, I am very curious.
That’s all I know.
I do not have to choose to think that way now.
Anything is Possible. Why not?
I help my clients see these patterns of playing small and assuming the worst.
Then, I show them that this doesn’t have to continue.
It’s all a choice.
If anyone needs help with this, let me know.
