My Adventure

I just got into town this afternoon. I did something I've never done before- went away by myself. I left work early Friday & drove down to the Smokey Mtns in Tennesee. (Mz Huny- you were with me in spirit! I wasnt far from ya!) I was suffering from brain saturation. Between work, greiving of my Grandmother & all the family BS its caused, the loss of a boyfriend of 1 1/2 yrs last August, & the loss of a good friendship here, I said enough is enough. I did a lot of self discovery over these three days. It was very overwhelming at first, Gatlinburg being a couple's paradise, not to mention full of families. I was able to really dig down deep & start to heal- now I know it will take longer than that, but I'm off to a good start! The Smokies is the only place, besides the ocean, that I really feel like I'm home. Never tire of the mountains or the rushing water- very soul cleansing. I went to my favorite, Chimney tops parking area- picture a rushing creek, with whitecaps, rushing crystal water & boulders the size of cars. I sat on a boulder in the middle of it & finally felt some peace. I did things I wanted to do- really took care of me! I didnt run from my problems- they're still there, but now I feel stronger to deal with stuff. Also had an incredible fantasy thought of a pinic table in the woods.....maybe someday

Good for you!!!!! Sometimes you just have to get away and gain a new perceptive.

I'm glad you were able to get away and regroup! It helps to get a new perspective on things after you've rested the brain a little!
