What Life is Like On Vacation

Want to live your life like you’re on vacation? Read on to find out my recommended tips of how you can bring the feelings of the Bahamas right to your own home plus, exclusive footage of me on my most recent family vacation


Woo! It’s day 1 of my vacation… and life is great. I have no complaints like I normally would. I’m not worried about money or bills or any of my day to day stresses. I’m just happy the sun is shining and as far as I’m concerned, the world is my oyster!

Or so it seems. ::ponders::

What is it about vacation mode that makes us feel so…liberated?

Being on vacation makes me want to capture every moment and only occupy my time with things that bring me joy.

Capture every moment and occupy your time with things that bring you joy #vacationmode

Being in a constant state of bliss gives me the energy I need to manifest my destiny: remember you need to feed it as much energy as you can. With my energy tank on full, my cup runneth over allowing me to pay it forward and transfer energy unto others!

People say life on vacation is different. That it can’t doesn’t translate to real life. Don’t be friends with these people. Un-invite them to your parties. When they ask why, tell them it’s because Ky said so.

I challenge the concept that life can’t replicate what it’s like on vacation. Why not!?

Why can’t I fill my life with things that bring me joy and uplift my spirit!?

It gets to a point where you realize that you’re not living the life you want. And it sparks something. It ignites a change.

That’s all it takes: inspiration.

Before you know it, your life is reaping benefits on a regular basis.

You’re able to have:

  • improved physical & mental health (click here for tips on how to improve your mental health)
  • increased will power (click here for tips on how to increase your will power)
  • better bonds with loved ones
  • and general well being:

These are the real life side effects of vacation according to expert, Psychologist Shannon Torberg.

Here’s what I propose: think about how life is when you’re on vacay.

Pay attention to the things that you can do without or anything you choose not to give energy to.

For me: it’s talking and/or thinking about my job; I want to give as little energy to it as possible until I will it out of my life.

I’m trying to succeed on my own! I have plans for me! And there’s nothing I wouldn’t sacrifice to achieve it!

On the flip side, think about what being on vacation brings out of you!

Maybe you make an active decision not to be on your phone as much, or you’re inspired to conquer a fear, or just put on a nice ‘fit and dance the night away!

For me: I’m usually kinder, a lot more patient and have a willingness to say “yes” that I would love to incorporate into my everyday life.

I’d love to hear from you:

Is there an aspect of you that only comes out during vacation mode? Think about how this can be applied to your everyday life and tell me how you think it could benefit you.

Drop it in the comments below.

Here are some exclusive clips from some past vacations with yours truly ^_^

Until our next adventure…


Family Vacation on Carnival Cruise circa 2019


Baby girl’s first time on an airplane ^_^



Whether on land or at sea, I always bring my dancing shoes



The views from the Atlantis Aquarium took my breath away ❤




Build-a-bear experience! I just LOVED our Cruise Director, Cookie

The key to success is and has always been ENERGY. Read on to find out what energy is and how you can use it to improve all aspects of your life


I’ve read my fair share of self-help books, “The Secret“, “The Power of Now“, and “You Are A Bad-Ass At Making Money” to name a few.

They all have the same bottom line: if you want to succeed at something, you must feed it energy.

“If you want to succeed at something, you must feed it #energy”

What is Energy?

What IS energy? 

Simply, it is the effort you dedicate to an idea in order to bring it to fruition.

By literal definition, it is “the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity“. The two keywords in this definition are “required” and “sustained“.

This means energy isn’t optional, It’s a prerequisite.

Energy is the difference between completing a task right away and putting it off until tomorrow, between a business taking off and it never leaving the drawing board, between a dream and a goal. (My definition of a goal is, a dream + energy + money.) 

Seems like a really simple algorithm, doesn’t it? It’s harder than it seems.

That’s because a key component of producing energy is self-motivation and being self-motivated is something you have to constantly work on.

It’s very easy to falter or be distracted when you’re the only one doing the pushing but, I’m here to tell you, it’s worth the effort.

Where you may be going wrong

Lack of energy is the reason why you’re still at your 9 – 5, stuck in the dreaming phase instead of doing your dream job: we’re still giving entirely too much energy to things that don’t matter to us.

When you choose to give your energy to your day job instead of your dreams, your dreams are being starved. 

Think of your dreams like a plant and the energy its life source; give it the energy it needs and it will flourish. Deny it? It will dwindle and shrivel up until there’s nothing left. 

I’m not saying to up and quit your job as you read, what I’m saying is, you want that dream life? That dream house? To reach a certain amount in savings or to travel? 

No matter the goal, give the idea energy and see how much of a difference it makes. 

  • Talk about it. Every chance that you get and in as many ways as possible.
  • Think about it. Have it in the forefront of your mind. What does it look like? Feel like? What would you do if you had it? 
  • Write about it. Make it real by putting it into words. Try journaling, a diary, a To-Do List or a Not-to-do-list.

 *Here’s one I found online: Click to access Not-To-Do-List-Printable.pdf Instead of looking at the things I NEED to do, I did as assessment for what I DON’T NEED which made space for the things that matter. Like my dream of being a Writer!

The Bottom Line

What ever it is that’s occupying your energy and preventing you from achieving that special goal, let. it. go. (I call this releasing. ) 

So, what are you willing to release?

Start by asking yourself what you can do without so that you may apply more energy to your dreams and make them a reality.

How much or how little is entirely up to the individual but, I decided that there’s nothing that I wasn’t willing to sacrifice to achieve my goals and here I am writing for you ^_^ 

 How many of you can say the same?

Here’s a look at my Not To Do List! As you can see from the eraser marks, it’s been updated a few times. Thats a sign of growth! ^_^

I’d love to hear from you:

What aspects of your life do you think could improve by giving or taking away energy?
