Vacationing limitation style

2016 and 2017, three of my highschool friends and I turned 60...trying not to pay attention to numbers is challenging for those of us whose lives depend on "good" numbers. Anyway, back to my HS friends. We decided to go to Hawaii this April to celebrate. 4 Women and my one friend's husband. We stayed at Barking Sands beach in Kauai on a naval base..long story.I learned a few lessons while traveling with friends, who are basically healthy.1. I don't travel at the same speed they do And that's OK. But I did quite good, walking, climbing steep walkways, and getting around on a swaying boat. We kept a busy sightseeing schedule, but my friend's knew when I had to rest and I let them know when I had to take a day off.2. I learned I can be irritable and I don't like that, but in retrospect, it makes sense and I have to be compassionate towards myself when I'm tired. Irritability is a sign I've reached my peak.3. Ask for help on the plane and off.4. Know your limitations. If you can't climb a hill, you can't climb a hill.5. Stay in the moment. Take some alone time to clear your head.6. Don't compare yourself which I found myself doing from time to time.These are just a few lessons I learned while on vacation in beautiful Kauai!
