Do you ever........


Do you ever.......feel like escaping from the rest of the world for just a few days or maybe even a week? Or am I just a crazy mixed up person. I am so confused. I've been really happy and content now for weeks. Have had a good weekend with friends. The time with my family has seemed overwheleming. Seems I can never do enough for those kids of mine, I love them and my grandbabies enormously. Sometimes the demands of my kids drive me crazy.
I feel like being alone or maybe with just one person. Go to the woods, watch nature, spend some time listening to music and just thinking. Seems like going to the woods, where there is no tv, no phones, and just the sounds of nature helps to get my feet back where my roots belong. Makes no sense I'm sure.
Is it possible to get away with someone that would understand you needing sometime to yourself, yet be there because they know you need them there and appreciate being alone with you? I wouldn't know. In a way I think the only place that happens is in books, movies, songs, and tv shows. What do you think?
Anyway I am going to hush. I"m sure this isn't the right place to post this kind of stuff, but a friend told me to post my feelings on the days I post. So these are my feelings today.
Take care and have a good week.

Hi Tokena! YEP! It sure doesn't hurt to "blog"...it kind of makes you think about stuff in a different perspective when you have to search a little for the right words to use, huh!? Doesn't it bring just a little "clarity" to write down your feelings??

And NO...you're perfectly "normal" to be confused sometimes, happy sometmes and sad sometimes! I always tell myself when I'm sad or confused...that "there would never be ANY happy or having clarity"...if there were NOT times that I'm sad or confused!!

Life is such a learning experience...and nothing ever remains constant. Your entire life is like a painting in progress...it's never really "done" until you've sucked in your last breath...and even THEN...you probably won't get to stand back and look at your own work of art!

I have a WAY different set of circumstances and realities than you do, or anyone else does...we're all very unique. I have my very OWN set of "confusions" myself, but I am trying to enjoy the TRIP, instead of merely the destination. Your desire to "escape to the woods by yourself or with one other person" is not only reasonable and completely normal...it's entirely "do-able"! While NONE of us have complete control of our ultimate destinies...you can actually DO that one, Tokena!

Just don't forget to enjoy all of the little wonderful things that happen every day until you get there!

tokena...
Well, it makes plenty of sense ~ and it's good for one to get away from the stresses of everyday life every now and then.
I enjoy your very good writing here, and I hope you have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR, tokena. *smiling warmly*
