The dream holiday
„A holiday is like love: anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort and remembered with nostalgia” (Anonymous)
,,I sat down at the computer with a lot of thoughts. In front of the white paper, without any thought about what I’m going to write… ,,But I’m going on holiday, in fact I’m already in the holiday state. I somehow activated it right before my holiday started, out of patience!” So how do I do this? How can I pretend that these things don’t actually happen and that I have an unprecedented desire to write? … Know! I will write about the holiday!
Most of the time, by trying to correspond, we force ourselves to do a lot of actions that generate a state of discomfort, through frustration and the feeling of injustice or incorrectness that we feel. Or, if we can ,,dissociate” ourselves from negative emotions and analyze a little the real reasons that create our unpleasant state, without trying to mask them, forcing ourselves to do things we don’t really want to do, it is possible to be able, through inner authenticity, to choose actions more suitable for us, which will give us satisfaction.
For me, from the truck driver’s seat, holiday means a well-deserved rest period. After a year of work, it’s time to relax. It is a fair exchange: ,,After work, and (reward) rest.” For me, holiday means external freedom, a welcome break from the tumult of concerns and worries, a temporal space, sometimes as if a-temporal, where work stands still and waits for me to rest, relax, meditate . It is a refuge from the avalanche of roles that I have to play every day, which of course burden me more or less. It is a bridge between me and myself, where, stripped of roles, I can enjoy the sea, the sun, the mountain, the sand, the forest or whatever lies beyond the constraints of life.
As a child, I looked forward to the holiday, that rest period granted to pupils and students.
I’m still looking forward to the holiday, ,,the right of all working people to miss a certain time from work for rest, health care, etc.” (Online Dex). So, nothing has changed. The need is the same, the right and the joy, too.
Holiday is a long-awaited moment for most people. It is that moment when we can disconnect from the daily routine, explore new places, relax and enjoy the time spent with our loved ones. But what does a dream holiday actually mean?
A dream holiday is not just limited to an exotic place or a luxury resort. It is a time when we can connect with our own desires and passions, where we can do the things that bring us joy and fulfillment. Whether it’s a wilderness adventure, relaxing on a tropical beach or exploring a new city, everyone has their own dream of the perfect holiday.
For me, a dream holiday can mean an escape to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, to spend time in the mountain air or in the middle of a forest, where I can explore mountain trails, hike or admire the spectacular scenery. It is the time when I can rekindle the adventurous spirit and feel that special connection with nature.
The dream holiday also means relaxation and rest. I can think of exotic destinations with endless beaches and crystal clear waters where I can sunbathe and swim in the sea. I also enjoy the moments spent in a hammock under the shade of a palm tree or with my feet in the fine sand. It is the time when I can forget about the daily stress and enjoy the peace and beauty of nature.
A dream holiday can also mean the opportunity to explore new cities and different cultures. I like to visit museums and art galleries, to walk the old streets of the cities or to taste traditional local dishes, specific to the places where I have the chance to go. It is the time when I can learn new things, I can discover the history and traditions of other peoples to enrich my cultural experience.
Regardless of each person’s preferences, a dream holiday should provide an experience full of joy, relaxation and fulfillment. It is the time when we can let go of our worries and live in the present, savoring every moment. It is the time when we can create precious memories with our loved ones and bring back the energy and enthusiasm for life.
In conclusion, the dream holiday is that time when we can connect with ourselves to do the things that bring us happiness and fulfillment. Whether we choose to explore nature, relax on a beach or discover different cultures, the important thing is to enjoy every moment and create priceless memories.
A dream holiday is a gift we give ourselves, an oasis of peace and joy.”
