This post is all about how wrong I was. It is hard for someone like me to admit that I was wrong, but for this post, I will admit that I was wrong. I am actually VERY HAPPY that I have had a change of heart.For years we have been fortunate enough to take a wide variety of vacations. We have gone to the beach, mountains, cruises, Disney, Europe, etc. I have the traveling bug in my DNA. Throughout this period of time I have been the biggest brat about the beach. I just haven’t been a fan. All of my friends have tried to reason with me and question how I can not LOVE the beach. I said the same thing over and over…”I’m not a beach person, but love the mountains.” I love Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Switzerland.” In the back of my mind I remember scorching hot beaches, babies in diapers, and misery. I was ok forgoing that awesome Mexico vacation everyone talked about.Mexico…In fact, I have been a brat about Mexico as well. The second it became unsafe in areas, I jumped on that “bandwagon” and had nothing nice to say. I didn’t want to go vacation in Mexico. In fact, when we would take a cruise that docked in Mexico, I would gladly stay on board.
Ok…this is the part where I eat CROW. Actually, I deserve a huge slice!
A few of months ago four of us starting talking about a girls trip. We wanted to go someone fun, fast, and inexpensive. We pondered the idea of a road trip, but all of us wanted something more “exotic”. Mexico was mentioned and I remember saying “I’m not a fan, but I would actually be excited about going with you girls”.Fast forward to our Cancun vacation. I can honestly say it was one of the BEST vacations I have ever taken! It wasn’t long, but it was PERFECT! It was inexpensive, beautiful, all-inclusive, and easy! In fact, it was a short 1 hour 45 minute flight from Houston to Cancun. The water was beautiful (all the different shades of turquoise blue). The weather was not too hot. The food was 5 star! I will be blogging in the future about our wonderful resort.In conclusion, don’t be a brat like myself. If you are not a fan of something, don’t close yourself completely to the idea. I am so glad that I was open to the idea of a Mexican Beach vacation. It was beautiful, easy, relaxing, and fun. I now get what everyone has been telling me for years. I feel that until you find “the right fit” you will not understand how wonderful this vacation can be….and Mexico is so close!!!My question for you, what is something that you thought you hated, but ended up really liking once you were more opened minded?
