When I feel upset or sad or if anything at all is bothering me, I always try to go to my ”Happy Place”, at least in my mind. In my ”Happy Place” there is no stress, no problems exist and there I only feel piece and tranquility.
I totally love my job but because I meet so many different people every day, (my job is very social), it´s so important to have a secret location where you can hide away from the rest of the world from time to time. That place is definately our summer house in the archipelago. As soon as I step on to the island the stress just runs off my back in an effortless manor and disappears into total nothingness. There I don´t check what time it is, my mobile gets left inside the cottage and I just enjoy being outside in the nature. On the island time stands still. The rest of the world no longer exists. It´s nearly like real magic. An alternative calm and peaceful world to the real and hectic city world we normally live in. Don´t get me wrong, I love my work and and I very much enjoy being busy but sometimes when it all get´s a a bit too much it really helps to visit my ”Happy Place”, even if it´s just in my mind during the winter months when I don´t have time to go there in real life. Today it felt like a warm delicious spring day outside and it just made me think of our magical island where life is just that little bit better, kinder and softer.
