Fly Me to the Moon

Maxx-M - - EDITOR’S LETTER - Me­lani Se­muel

A s the end of 2014 was ap­proach­ing and we were talk­ing about the past year and our hopes for 2015, a friend asked me, “What makes you happy?” That sim­ple ques­tion got me think­ing. My im­me­di­ate re­ac­tion was that lots of things make me happy. But then I be­gan to think, “What makes me re­ally happy?” I mean hap­pi­ness that lingers, not the kind that lasts a few hours, like when I buy a new pair of shoes. Then I re­al­ized that I didn’t re­ally know what made me happy. That night I thought about my life and re­al­ized I had ev­ery rea­son to be happy. The only thing that made me un­happy was the fact that I didn’t re­al­ize how lucky I was. I was too busy work­ing or plan­ning my life that I for­got the most im­por­tant thing: to en­joy life. I was so busy I never thought to count my bless­ings. Now, I’ve started to ap­pre­ci­ate life more and en­joy ev­ery mo­ment. It turns out it doesn’t re­ally take much to be happy, as the most pre­cious things in life are free. One thing that al­ways makes me happy is trav­el­ling. I love to travel and so do most of my col­leagues. How­ever, we all like dif­fer­ent des­ti­na­tions we all en­joy dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties on the road. My man­ag­ing edi­tor, Grace, re­cently told us some­thing in­ter­est­ing about per­son­al­ity types and how per­son­al­ity plays an im­por­tant role in de­cid­ing things like places to travel, ho­tel pref­er­ences, where to eat, what to do and more. I was a bit scep­ti­cal at first, but the more I learned, the more it made sense. I could see how a col­league with a sim­i­lar per­son­al­ity to mine would en­joy the same things as me. And I un­der­stood why some col­leagues might love a par­tic­u­lar re­sort that I found to be very or­di­nary. In this best of ev­ery­thing spe­cial edi­tion, we dis­cover the best in travel for your per­son­al­ity type. It is fun and it is in­ter­est­ing, and it is a great way to get more out of your hol­i­day. Thank you so much for all the sup­port and loy­alty you have show us over the years. We look for­ward to many more pros­per­ous years.

Happy read­ing, ev­ery­one!
