“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”–Helen Keller
Husband and I took a trip over Labor Day weekend. It wasn’t a long one as we were only gone about 56 hours, but it was a necessary one. We went to hang out with some of my family in Panama City Beach, Florida. The weather was wonderful. The seafood was plentiful. The sunburn was all over my back. Good times.
It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind without realizing that you’ve given more of yourself to the world than what exists. At those times, take a break. Take a trip. Have a cup of tea. Go for a run. Do what you need to do to get your head back on straight.
Going to beach is like that for me. This trip was perfectly times as I just started school for the semester and husband is scheduled to go on a business trip in a few days. I was able to spend time with people who love and accept me just as I am and I recharged my batteries.
