I am exhausted! This week has been mentally draining at work as well as just bizarre. It’s one of those weeks where I keep pinching myself to make sure I haven’t stepped into an alternate universe. Half the time I want to bust out laughing or sit in a corner and cry. Mostly I’m just tired, bone deep, mushy brain fatigue. I have to work this weekend which is adding to my increasing tired level. No Friday night celebration for me.
So in light of this exhaustive state I’ve entered I decided to find an image of my happy place.
This is my place of zen! Whenever, something crazy is going on or I’m too bone tired to even function – I think of a place like this. I picture myself lying on this pier in absolute silence soaking up all the amazing colors and feeling the warm sun on my skin. I take 25 seconds to taste the crisp air, feel the heat on my cheeks, the cool water, and close my eyes to see this vision.
Once the 25 seconds is up I come back to the reality of call lights, wheelchairs, walkers and demands but I feel much better and slightly more relaxed. My mind holds on to the hope that someday I’ll go to a place like this. Someday the money I work hard for will take me to a beautiful land of serenity and provide the moment of piece and rest I so desperately need.
Until then I’m going to relish in my fantasy and keep on putting one foot in front of the other until Monday when I get a whole 24 hours off of work. Paradise will just have to wait.
Hoping you all find your happy place…..
