Have you ever been told, "Close your eyes, envision your favorite place, where you are happy and relaxed". Maybe it was during a relaxation or breathing class, perhaps at a counselor's office. Where is your happy place?
We all have one. It may be fictional, some place you would like to travel. Maybe it is a vacation spot you visited once or maybe even a place you go back to time and again. It may even be a place in your home such as a porch with a cozy chair.
There are times when I am so stressed that I wish I could stop and mentally go to my happy place but I never seem to take the time to do that. But if I am ever asked to stop.....close my eyes......take a deep breath and visualize my happy place, this is it:
See those two chairs on the beach close to the water beyond the row of blue chairs? That's me and my hubby, ha! Well, not really as I am standing on our balcony taking the picture but this is my happy place.
We only get there two or three times a year, otherwise it is rented out to pay for it :), but it is my happiest place on earth. I can hear the seagulls, I can smell the salt air, I can feel the warm sun and I can hear the waves crashing.
Hmmmm......oh, I'm back. So where is your happy place?
