Independence, delegation and knowing when and how to find a balance.

This past April, my family and I went to Spain to visit my oldest daughter, Maddy. She was spending a semester in Barcelona and that was a great incentive to take a European vacation. As a planner, it should come as no shock that I often plan my vacations fairly meticulously. I like to know where I’m going and, typically, lead the way. There was something very different about this vacation though, and it taught me a great deal about the freedom of letting go and the opportunities it can open up. When we arrived, we started the trip spending a few days in Madrid, then took a bullet train to Seville for a few nights during Holy Week before flying up to Barcelona.
