I used to visualise this beautiful two storey white house with a balcony. My Grandmother would wave at me from the top as I was walking down a path..There were pine trees, daffodils and black pansies along the way..My cat (who is deceased) would run up and great me and a monkey? Sometimes that progressed into the Monkey having a family, but they would be happy as, and walk with me. In front of me was a cliff and I'd stand there and see the sea.
In "life" I go to the sea. I can walk on that sand, pick up shells, and just breathe and take everything in and feel peaceful.
I also am an avid gardener and love creating, so if home and I don't feel like driving all be it, that it's 5 minutes away, the beach.. I will go and buy more plants and plant away.
I've just turned my "office" into a shop.... A shop of homewear that I rent out, or people can buy, I sell Real Estate..The shop has a lounge, paintings, mirrors, bird baths, plants... Now when I go to work, I want to go to work..
I guess that is where I now hide.
It is funny thought and I'm really glad I came across this thread... The beach is literally 2 mintues walking distance away and I forget, that it's there that I love the most... I really need to think more about me, and not so much on work and life's constant chores and responsibilities and walk it every day.
