Done with the day? How was it? What did the boss say? How was the meeting? The client didn’t like the ideas, didn’t he? You come back home, what now? As usual tired, maybe now you’ll have food, watch something while you are eating and then go to sleep. The grind starts again, the same old mundane life.
We all are earning to pay the bills, for food, clothes and a roof on top of our heads, aren’t we? But in this daily drill, we tend to forget that we are also earning for “ourselves”. By the emphasis on ourselves, we mean for some kind of an escape, for something or somewhere that heals your soul. We aren’t telling to blow off all your money at once on leisure activities. Save till you can purchase all that you need. Yet, now and again, offer yourself a little break.
It’s Holi in a few days! It’s the festival of colors, isn’t it? Why not give yourself a break and use this long weekend to fill colors in your and your loved ones lives?
It’s last minute you say? Well, isn’t that what our name suggests? All you have to do is choose a place and pack your bags. We’ll design the perfect vacation for you. Here’s MLMT presenting a list of fabulous weekend getaways which will recharge you and help create wonderful memories.
