Summer 2021 is looking up. With many cities opening, and there being a normal buzz in the air, it is time to start thinking about summer vacation.

Preface: On a recent trip abroad, a surprising yet everyday occurring event happened on the airplane. It was one of those things that makes you reevaluate your life. I wondered if I was living my life to the fullest. Was I taking enough chances or playing the game of life too safe? Either way I knew I had to change because everyday is a blessing that should be taken full advantage of.
Waking up each day, what is the first thing you do? Probably make sure everyone in the house is up and ready for work and school. Now that summer vacation is over, we must get back to the daily grind. Wake up, make sure the kids are all set, make lunch, do the school drop off, go to work, pick the kids up, make dinner, do homework and repeat the same scenario the next couple of days. Although having a routine is great, sometimes you need to switch things up a bit. Here are a few different ways that you can live your life to the fullest without having to sacrifice your responsibilities.
