One of the good things about a holiday is finding that treasure that will remind you of all the fabulous things that you saw and did. My spectacular Kimberley trip was captured in some aboriginal art which I bought as unframed canvases. Upon my return I had them framed by collection and hung in my study.
They are now a constant reminder of a fabulous time in a remote part of Australia. We need to remember the good times, to savor the richness of the scenery and the diversity of the wildlife. Spectacular hardly does it justice, but reliving it again and again is a joy.
There are good times and not-so-good times, and having touchstones to reawaken the memories of the better ones is essential. Surround yourself with the good stuff as it will give you an inner glow and drive that is sustainable. Go and choose something of your own that represents a great holiday or a significant moment. Pop it in a prominent position and it can be your secret inner guilty pleasure to restore your equilibrium.
