Take a bubble bath, order four bottles of champagne, wrap on up in cozy robes and let your worries float away.
Cry, bitch, laugh, sing, dance…do whatever you have to do to let go. Even if the escape is only temporary.
Feeling empty? Well there are countless ways to fill up on endorphins (sparkling wine is a good place to start). Stress is the catalyst for so many real-life ailments, and negative energy is highly contagious disease that nobody wants to catch.
Easier said than done, perhaps, but we must try and set ourselves free every once in a while, and embrace things that enable a more restful state of mind.
When I get lost, I remember my road trips…sticking my head out the window, with the music blasting, closing my eyes and letting the wind blow through my hair. These were the times when I allowed myself to feel life, like a beating pulse, rather than stumble along like a zombie off course.
I’ve certainly had my fair share of “moments”, where crying feels like the only possible release. But it is really important to remember those other times…the times when you you couldn’t help but smile, even if you tried super hard to keep a straight face. Just writing this is making me smile, because I am grateful for my friendships and the wonderful memories I’ve made so far.
We all deserve a night off from time to time. When the road gets rocky it’s easy to forget that it’s OK to escape for a second. There are endless opportunities for enjoyment out there, we just have to be willing to embrace them.
